The actress Christina Ricci believes that childhood stardom made her “obnoxious.”

The 43-year-old actress rose to fame when she played Wednesday Addams in the 1991 movie “The Addams Family.” According to, Christina says she went through a hard time dealing with the pressures of fame initially.

Some people deal better with fame than other people and some people have more supportive families than other people. And I do think that having a ‘famous child’ is a weird pressure to put on a child,

Christina Ricci told the “Reign with Josh Smith” podcast.

I think it’s — and I always thought this when I was younger — when being asked questions about who I was before I knew who I was, I knew that that was not helpful as a kid, which is probably why I was so obnoxious in interviews all the time, I find it interesting because anytime I do work with someone who has been a child actor, they are the most professional people on set. They are the people that understand the sacrifices that are going to have to be made. They’re always the most prepared, they’re always the most adaptable, as far as working with them.

Christina Ricci also believes that she is better at dealing with rejection in her professional life rather than her personal life.

Christina, Hollywood producer James Heerdegen’s ex-wife, said:

I think professionally I’m actually very good at being rejected.

I mean, you might be p***** off for an afternoon or a day, but I’ve never been somebody who lets it destroy me. I feel like real life, your personal life is so much more difficult. My personal life is more difficult and requires a lot more of my focus and I emotionally react to it more than my professional life.
