Christina Ricci: I'm still learning

Dorset Echo: Christina Ricci stars in new Robert Pattinson film Bel Ami Christina Ricci stars in new Robert Pattinson film Bel Ami

Christina Ricci may have been acting since she was nine, but she revealed she learns something new with every project.

The former child star - who made her debut in Mermaids - appears opposite Robert Pattinson in new film Bel Ami, stars in glamorous TV show Pan Am, and is about to play Hermia in an off-Broadway production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Christina said: "I like theatre a lot. I find that every time I do it, I learn so much. I'm concentrating on trying to learn as much as I can about acting to be the best I can be.

"I want to work with the best directors and actors, and glean as much information as I can from them to really become a great actress."

The 32-year-old actress also said she doesn't feel any pressure on the way she looks any more.

Christina explained: "I think it depends on what kinds of films you're doing and what kind of career you're after. But once you get into real film-making and films that are more about substance and story, it becomes less about image."

:: Bel Ami is in cinemas now.
