Christina Ricci's 'hurricane' 20s
Mar 7, 2012, 2:01 GMT
Christina Ricci's 20s were like a 'hurricane'.
The 32-year-old actress - who landed her first film role in 'Mermaids' aged 10 - insists life is much calmer now she has entered her third decade.
She said: 'I'm so glad I'm not 20-years-old any more. I was in a hurricane. I'm a lot calmer now. I don't cause destruction for myself and others everywhere I go.'
'I take things as they happen and I've learned to be calm about things, troubleshoot problem as they arise and make the best out of things.'
But despite the mayhem, Christina - who suffered from an eating disorder in her early teenage years - wouldn't change a thing about her wild-girl past.
In an interview with Marie Claire, she explained: 'It all kind of makes up the back story which is my life.'
Now single, having called off her engagement to actor Owen Benjamin in 2009, the 'Bel Ami' star says she is looking for: 'Somebody smart and funny that I love being with.''
But one think she won't stand for in a relationship is someone that wants to take away her personality.
She added: 'I've always said to people you should never let anyone change who you are because the only commodity you really have is your individuality.'
