Christina Ricci's Confidence Problems

Christina Ricci has confessed she "hated" her body.

The 'Sleepy Hollow' star - who battled eating disorder anorexia after she was catapulted to fame - couldn't stand seeing herself in a mirror because she had such low self-esteem about her looks and figure.

Ricci - who shot to fame when she was just 10 after starring in 'Mermaids' alongside Cher, Winona Ryder and Bob Hoskins - explained: "For years, I hated myself. I covered the mirrors in my house. I literally couldn't have a mirror in my room."

Even though she has got over her body issues, Ricci, 30, still doesn't like to see her reflection in a mirror.

She added: "I still can't sit in a restaurant or someplace where I can catch my reflection. I get so paranoid."

One role that helped her deal with her body hang-ups was her part in 2007 film 'Black Snake Moan' - in which she starred opposite Samuel L. Jackson and had to appear for most of the movie in only her underwear.

She explained: "For that, I needed to lose any self-consciousness because I feel sometimes you can see that in a nude scene."

Ricci's latest project sees her voice a character in new animated film 'Alpha And Omega'.

She can also be seen in 'After.Life' with Liam Neeson and 'Bel Ami' alongside Uma Thurman and Robert Pattinson later this year.
