Hollywood actress Christina Ricci, who shot to fame at the age of 10 starring in Mermaids alongside Cher and Winona Ryder, suffered from low self-esteem because of body issues she suffered as a young actress.
The Penelope star who battled anorexia, couldn’t stand seeing herself in a mirror as she hated her looks and figure, Contactmusic reported.
"For years, I hated myself. I covered the mirrors in my house. I literally couldn’t have a mirror in my room," said Ricci.
However, the 30-year-old actress still does not like to see her reflection in a mirror.
"I still can’t sit in a restaurant or someplace where I can catch my reflection. I get so paranoid," she added.
Nevertheless, Ricci shed her body inhibitions with the film ‘Black Snake Moan’ where she had to appear only in her underwear. She will also be seen in ‘After. Life’ with Liam Neeson and ‘Bel Ami’ alongside Uma Thurman and Robert Pattinson later this year. (PTI)
