Christina Ricci has been in the film industry for nearly three decades, but she admits that she always knew the better roles would come once she got older.
“I thought I would do better as I got older. In my 20s, I wasn’t really considered a romantic lead, but I was also not character-actressy enough. It was a weird position. I was so young-looking,” the 36-year-old actress recently told The Guardian.
“They still don’t like to cast me in anything where I have to be a professional,” Christina added. “They’re like, ‘It’s not believable.’ I’ve been waiting to get older so I could get parts. I’ve never just been offered good or interesting things. I’ve always had to go after things and, in this case (referring to her szhow Z: The Beginning of Everything), create my own work.”
