Christina Ricci: Motherhood Made Me “Completely Different”

Z: The Beginning of Everything star Christina Ricci covers Net-a-Porter’s digital magazine The Edit and opens up about life with husband James Heerdegen and their 2-year-old son Freddie.

On marriage and motherhood: “Marriage shows you your flaws in how you deal with things, and having a child forces you to grow up at the speed of light. I’m a completely different person than I was before I had my child.”

On how she’s raising her son: “My life is mainly play-dates… When I was a child, I was told, ‘Life is just not fair, honey, and you’ve got to make the best of it.’ I don’t think anyone is telling their kids that anymore, and it’s important. Life isn’t fair; the right thing doesn’t always happen for you. Because I was so celebrated for being a child, I think I held onto that immaturity for a very long time. It was the thing that made me special. Then at a certain point, like, 35, it’s not so special to be immature.”

On being grateful social media wasn’t around when she was younger: “I did things in public that were so ill-advised. I’m so thankful there was no social media back then. My publicist never had a child, I believe, because she had promised her firstborn to so many journalists to quash stories about me. But I had no sense of reality, because I was plucked out of reality when I was eight years old.”
