Share post:

Christina Ricci gets candid about her financial hardships and negative feelings about her appearance over the years. The actress who became a renowned name in the industry has her own emotional turmoil. On the latest episode of the Let’s Be Clear With Shannen Doherty, Ricci who shares  15-month-old daughter Cleo with husband Mark Hampton, and to 8-year-old son Freddie, with ex-husband James Heerdegen shared what it feels to carry the burden of the family.  Let’s check out what she had revealed. 

Christina Ricci shared the hardships of her life

The 44-year-old actress said, “I’ve gone through periods as an adult where we were really, really broke, You just have that thing of, ‘I don’t ever want to feel this way ever again.’ It’s like this visceral feeling. I don’t ever want to feel this helpless, because I think that’s what not having a lot of money makes you feel like. You feel very helpless.” 

Previously, in a 2022 interview with Sunday Times Style, Yellowjackets star revealed that she sold her Chanel handbags and parts of her jewelry collection as she couldn’t afford to fund her 2020 divorce from Heerdegen. 

She shared, “There’s a ton of that pressure and it’s hard. You have to work to support your family but at the same time you working takes away time from your family. So yeah, it’s difficult but I’m in a really good place now. Again, I have a really supportive husband.”

Meanwhile, she also noted how social media can affect a person’s self-esteem, as she puts it “can just put you in a really vulnerable position.”

“You do hear the negative stuff the loudest, and it’s tough,” Ricci shares. “I have experience with a person who his whole thing is just posting horrible, nasty things about me. It’s like all stuff that’s made up — horrible things about my children, my family. So I’ve just really had to ignore it. It’s that school ground mentality… but on such a huge level and such a public platform.”

She also noted how she was not happy with her looks as she shared, “When I started doing press for Yellowjackets and having to post on social media images of myself, just even as somebody over 40, I had a really hard time. I had a really hard time seeing these images. I had a really hard time reposting them. I really couldn’t reconcile caring about what I looked like so much. …It was so hard for me.”

The actress adds, “But we have to find ways to navigate it where it doesn’t emotionally drag us down.”
