25 Reasons You Probably Envied Christina Ricci in the '90s

Feb 12 2015 - 9:45am

With starring roles in hits like The Addams Family, Casper, and Now and Then, Christina Ricci [1] definitely cemented herself in '90s pop culture history. She brought surprising charm to Wednesday Addams, conveyed some thoughtful life lessons in Now and Then [2], and kissed then-heartthrob Devon Sawa not once, but twice on screen — not to mention her movie romance with Johnny Depp [3]. Since then, she's continued to win fans over with onscreen appearances and her funny Twitter feed [4], and last Summer, she had a baby boy [5]. The actress turns 35 this week, so to celebrate her birthday, take a trip down memory lane to remember all the reasons you couldn't help but envy Christina Ricci back in the '90s.
