Christina Ricci has grown up on screen but she has reached the age where she wants to settle down in her real life.
The 27-year-old actress, who rose to fame as a child in films such as "Addams Family Values" and "Casper, "is considering marrying her boyfriend Adam Goldberg.
She told U.K. Tatler magazine, "I'm definitely more at a time in my life where I want to settle down... Sometimes it sounds really good, but then I'm not actually sure I'd want to go through with the wedding. Although I feel like if we didn't have a wedding, my family would be mad at me, and Adam's family would be mad at him."
However, the brunette star can see the positives of becoming a "Mrs." She continued, "I don't want to deal with it because you know you're going to get in trouble. I just want to be married, or just engaged. Basically, I just want a ring. And the tax break."
Christina recently appeared much thinner and sans her famous curves at the Met in New York. However, rather than buckling to the Hollywood trend of a size zero, the actress lost weight for a role.
She said, "When I did 'Ice Storm' and 'The Opposite of Sex,' I was fifteen and sixteen. Realistically women do change a lot so I just lost my baby fat. As I have gotten older, I am starting to look more like my mother. But in this film ["Black Snake Moan"], she is someone that doesn't take care of herself and I wanted her to look like that. I wanted her to look unhealthy."
Christina stars with Justin Timberlake in the upcoming feature.
