Social media has been going nuts for this image of Christina Ricci as Morticia Addams. She famously played Mortica’s daughter, Wednesday, in The Addams Family nearly 25 years ago. At just 11, Ricci became an overnight sensation thanks to her scene-stealing performance as the gloomy Wednesday Addams, which was based on the 60s TV series and the original Charles Addams cartoon strips. She looks amazing, huh? But sorry to say, it’s fake. It has been flopped and Photoshopped from the publicity still of Anjelica Huston, below. But this kind of thing might get Hollywood thinking –we’ve not seem much of Ricci lately – so, get busy Paul Rudnick. He wrote the script to the sequel to 1993’s, Addams Family Values, which was the funnier of the two. Speaking of real or fake… remember Ricci’s classic line from the film when quizzed about her lemonade…? Watch.
