Hollywood actress Christina Ricci found an unlikely shoulder to cry on while working on BLACK SNAKE MOAN - her co-star Samuel L Jackson. The 27-year-old star concedes Jackson was the perfect on-set pal, and would listen to her woes whenever she encountered any problems. She says, "He is so on my side now. We worked together so well and just got along so well and trusted each other so much. "Sam did kind of play my father figure on set and I would go to him whenever I had a problem. "I would cry to Sam and Sam would fix it."
