Christina Ricci Reveals Being Threatened After Objecting to a Sex Scene

During a discussion on Wednesday’s episode of The View about how Hollywood actors have gradually gotten more control over their sex scenes, actress Christina Ricci said that early in her career, she was threatened with legal action because she didn’t like how one scene went. “Younger actresses don’t always have to go through what we did,” the Yellowjackets star explained. They can say, “I don’t want to do this sex scene,” or “I refuse to be naked.” They can set limits for themselves, something we were never permitted to do. Someone once threatened to sue me because I refused to perform this sex scene in a particular manner. It’s fantastic to see how much it’s changed.”
