S20E01: Christina Ricci

Content Warning: Child abuse, domestic violence

Actress Christina Ricci has been entertaining us on the big and small screen since she was just ten years old. While many child stars chafe under the pressure of early stardom, for Christina, escaping to a film set was a welcome diversion from her parents’ troubled marriage and eventual divorce. While her career would become a sustained success as an adult, her own first marriage turned into a nightmare scenario she’s still struggling with, even well into a happy second marriage.

If you or a loved one needs support, contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline online or by calling 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).
