Subscribe to Christina Ricci alerts

Christina Ricci was left "bruised" and "sick" while filming her role in supernatural thriller AFTER.life - she was forced to lie on an ice-cold mortuary slab for hours on end.
The actress plays a dead woman in the creepy new movie and the part called for her to lie still on a porcelain table wearing a skimpy nightgown while scenes were filmed around her.
Ricci admits it was one of the most uncomfortable experiences of her life, and left her ill for the rest of shoot.
She tells the Los Angeles Times, "My spine and the back of my hips got bruised on the first day. I had to lie back down on the bruises. The doctor came and he said, 'All I can do is give you painkillers.' The crew tried to warm the table for me. Someone brought in an electric blanket. But it was November and we were in a poorly insulated warehouse in New York City. I got sick."
