Christina Ricci: 'Johnny Depp explained it to me very simply'

American actress Christina Ricci was recently a guest on the SiriusXM show and she spoke with the host Andy Cohen about an interesting anecdote. 'A certain thing happened on the set of the movie 'Sirene' when a certain person was not very kind. Someone then said: 'Maybe he's a homophobe', to which I said I don't know what that means at all,' recalled the 42-year-old actress, who was nine years old at the time.

Namely, in 1990, Ricci filmed the movie 'Sirene' with actress Winona Ryder, who at that time started dating Johnny Depp . 'I was in Winona's trailer when she called me on the phone to talk to Johnny. And he then explained to me,' she recalled.

Depp and Ryder were one of the most famous Hollywood couples at that time, and they broke up in 1993. Ricci revealed how the actor explained to her what homosexuality is in the simplest way.

'Johnny then told me: 'It's when a man wants to have sex with a man. And when a woman wants to have sex with a woman ', and I just commented: 'Okay' As simple as that, ' the actress recalled. Ricci made several films with Depp, including 'Dream Valley' and 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas'.

Recall, Ricci became famous as a girl in the film 'Casper' and her career flourished in the late '90s. However, at the beginning of the new millennium, she slowly fell into oblivion, filling the media columns more with her marriage than with her roles in films. Last year she married her hairdresser Mark Hampton. The wedding also surprised their friends, and the couple decided to get married just two months after the actress revealed she was expecting a baby with a hairdresser. Their baby was born in December. By the way, Christina and her ex-husband James Heerdegen have a son, Freddie, and their divorce ended in July last year after seven years of a painful marriage that culminated in Heerdegen's alleged physical assault on Ricci.
