Alright, I know what you are thinking. And yes, I am aware that we generally try to use the “Who’s That Hottie?” feature to introduce you to hot starlets that you may not otherwise recognize. As well, I am very aware of the fact that Speed Racer is a kid’s movie. I don’t care — I’ve had a huge crush on Christina Ricci for some time now, and this is my column, so get over it.
As I just mentioned, this week’s hottie is Speed Racer’s Christina Ricci, who plays Trixie, the loyal and cute girlfriend of the title character. What is really striking about this role is that even at age 28, Ms. Ricci can still pull off playing a teenager. If that isn’t hot, I don’t know what is. You may also recognize her from a ton of movies, including her recent headlining of Penelope and her breathtakingly trashy performance as a mostly naked sex-fiend in Black Snake Moan. If you remember, that was the film that combined Ricci’s hotness with Samuel L. Jackson as a blues, singin’ man of the south — it was the movie to see in ’06, trust me.
As for the photos, which is why you are here in the first place, I have wrangled up a solid gallery, though Ms. Ricci has never really done that many scantily clad photo shoots. To balance it out, I did include one production still from Black Snake Moan. Photos courtesy of ChristinaRicci.ws.
