Christina Ricci married husband James Heerdegen last October, and looks like they’re ready to start a family already, because she’s pregnant with the couple’s first child!

From Entertainment Tonight:

A rep for the 34-year-old actress, tells ET that the Golden Globe nominee is expecting her first child with husband James Heerdegen.

The two met on the set of the canceled ABC series Pan Am and went public with their relationship in February 2012.

Cute. You don’t hear much from Christina Ricci these days, and something tells me she likes it that way. I don’t know too much about her or her husband or any of that, but she seems sweet when I’ve seen her in interviews. Either way, congrats to the happy couple and all of that (which I do sincerely mean despite sounding otherwise).

Christina Ricci Got Married!


Christina Ricci got married, you guys! Why has she kinda disappeared? She had that show Pan Am that I loved, but most people unfortunately did not, as it only lasted one season before it was abruptly pulled. But something good came out of it — she met her husband, James Heerdegen, on the set, and got engaged.

Here’s some details of their wedding from People:

The actress, 33, wore a Givenchy haute couture wedding gown in white silk tulle with appliqué of Chantilly lace and satin piping, embroidered with micro pearls. Her white tulle veil had appliqué of matching Chantilly lace.

The ceremony took place at Manhattan’s Harold Pratt House & Peterson Hall, a nearly century-old mansion which is also the headquarters of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Daaaamn her gown sounds gorgeous. Can’t wait to see it. I think fashionwise she makes pretty good choices. Yeah, I liked the giant bow. It’s the MET Gala.

Christina Ricci’s Been Secretly Engaged For Months


Oh, Christina Ricci, an actress for whom my feelings teeter perilously between “who gives a shit?” and “eh, whatever”. Of course, she was great in The Addams Family and I still have Black Snake Moan at somewhere around the 267th place in my Netflix queue. Beyond that, I’ve always found her to be a bit alien-headed but generally innocuous. But we’re not here to discuss her relative “meh”-ness, we’re here to celebrate her engagement!

Turns out, Christina’s been secretly engaged (gasp!) to longtime boyfriend James Heerdegen for months, and she’s only just confirmed the news to US Weekly:

“[We got engaged] a couple months back.”

Wow, a woman of many words! Don’t hold back, Christina! I kid. Obviously it’s nobody’s business what celebrities do in their personal lives, but we’re a culture of busybodies and think we should be privy to every aspect of a star’s existence, so it’s only natural that we also want to know what she and her fiancé are up to for Valentine’s Day! Take it away, Christina:

“Honestly, I was trying to think of that before, I can’t remember’ a single Valentine’s Day!” she said, laughing. “I personally just don’t think I’ve ever made a big deal about Valentine’s Day. I mean. I like to get like flowers.”

Good thinking. Valentine’s Day sucks – and that’s coming from someone in a long-term relationship. Aren’t you supposed to treat your significant other like a king or queen every day, not just some commercialized bullshit holiday based on overpriced boxes of chocolate and smarmy Hallmark cards? Maybe Christina Ricci and I have more in common than we thought.

FASHION: The 5 Worst Dressed at the 2012 Met Gala

Earlier in the day, we brought you the best, prettiest, most lovely ladies of the 2012 Met Gala, and now, we move on to the really fun part: the worst-dressed list.

In this edition, we have Claire Danes and Melania Trump, both of which look like they locked themselves in a tanning bed a la Tanning Mom; Christina Ricci, who, to distract us from the ugly-ass tattoo on her shoulder stuck a big, gigantor bow on her ass; Eva Mendes because she’s a twat and HA! HA! HA! she looks like she’s wearing an off-the-rack prom dress from 1995; Karolina Kurkova, who got a sneaky little joke memo telling her that this year’s Gala was Cheap Flapper themed; and an honorable mention in Kate Upton, who should know to never, never apply her makeup with a stun gun. Laws, that’s bad.

#5 – Claire Danes

Stars Without Makeup: Christina Ricci is Going to Give Kristen Stewart a Run for Her Money

I’ll admit: they’re no beach photos, but girl here is still totally smoking hot.

Christina was photographed riding the subway this past week in New York City, wearing an all-black ensemble and positively no makeup. I think one of the things that I like about her look the most is that when she does cake the face paint on, it doesn’t change her features all that dramatically. She basically looks the same one way or the other, and that, guys, is a sign of true beauty. She wears the makeup to enhance what she’s naturally got, not cover up something scary or trick you into thinking something’s there that really isn’t.

No, Christina’s a natural beauty, and like Kristen Stewart, she’s naturally susceptible to the charms of vampire bats, too. Girl recently interviewed about her recent project Bel Ami, in which she co-starred with Robert Pattinson. Christina claimed that she immediately fell for Robert’s charm and his kissing skill, and as much as I want to get behind this, I just can’t, because no matter how hot he really is, all I can think about is unbrushed teeth and unshoweredness and stank and frankly, that just sort of ruins everything for me. Christina said:

“We would just goof off and laugh while we were working. He’s a sweet guy and super funny… and a really good kisser. He’s so charming and smart. He’s so organised and in charge of his career. He was actually giving me advice.”

Bel Ami is about “… a young man’s rise to power in Paris via his manipulation of the city’s most influential and wealthy women,” and hits theaters later this year. Other castmembers include Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Colm Meaney.

I guess the next logical step would be to ask you guys – who’d you rather?

Christina Ricci: Still Totally Hot

And you know what? I don’t care how many failed movie projects she’s had over the past decade (think Black Snake Moan and Cursed) or failed television attempts (Pan Am was just cancelled out of the blue), because she’s done enough f-cking awesome things to last a lifetime. You know, like Mermaids, The Addams Family films, Casper, Now and Then, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and Sleepy Hollow with Johnny Depp, so needless to say, she’s earned her spot as Hollywood semi-royalty and will remain there because of her forever-hotness.

This is Christina walking along the beach with her latest boyfriend, who is some film hand person or something, but all I can see is Christina. Yeah, she’s a little on the skinnier side than I prefer her to be lately, but the stress of the airplane-Mad Men-knockoff cancellation still probably has her reeling a little bit. Plus, she recently talked about suffering from anorexia at one point in her life, so that also might have a little bit to do with it, too. She spoke to The Talk earlier last month where she discussed her bout of anorexia:

“Well, I was lucky. I only really suffered from it for about a year and a half. But I was put into therapy very quickly, so I was able to overcome it. I think it’s just really awkward to go through puberty, and go through growing up and becoming a woman, when everybody is always kind of looking at you. And especially — you’re doing fittings for a movie, and people are judging how this looks on you and how that looks on you. And you just get very uncomfortable and you never want anyone to be able to criticize you. … I would say [to teenage girls currently suffering from anorexia] that if you feel like you are starting to obsess too much about the way you look, then definitely get some kind of therapy or help very quickly. Because that can just grow into an obsession that you can’t control.”

Good point, girl, and I’m glad to know that you got your shit under control before it started to control you, because you mean a lot to me and the childhood that I shared with you (you’re only three years older than me, you know).

Let’s travel back in time and remember Christina for who she was, who she is, and hopefully, who she’ll continue to be for a long, long time to come, shall we?

Isn’t she just lovely?

Yep, Christina Ricci’s Still Hot

Christina’s recent shoot here comes from an interview taken with Emmy magazine, where she talks about those crazy teenage years that we loved her for:

“I was rebellious. I said a lot of crazy things. I was doing that because I felt threatened. When you’re a teenager and people are asking you fairly intimate questions, or questions where you’re not really sure that your opinion is going to sound smart or interesting, your defense is to make fun of yourself or the situation.”

OK. Show of hands – anyone else out there who still has a total hard-on for Christina Ricci? Yes? I thought so. Even though her acting career’s pretty much been veritable shit lately, I’ve been pulling for girlfriend all along. Or, at least, I would be if I had something to pull on, but I’m just not equipped like that, don’t you know.
