Christina Ricci was not pleased with how she was treated on the set of Yellowjackets when she wore a wig.
“They’ve forgotten I’m No. 3 on the call sheet just because I’m wearing this wig and spectacles.”
Christina Ricci is undoubtedly the most well-known cast member of “Yellowjackets,” but it appears that when she’s on set as Misty, the respect that comes with name recognition vanishes.
Ricci, 41, was asked about the “tragic wig” she has to wear during filming in an interview with the New Yorker following the Season 1 finale of the Showtime series. Ricci and her younger co-star Samantha Hanratty are both wearing the same curls and spectacles on the episode.
“The character has the same curly bob with side bangs that my mum wore throughout my youth. “I don’t mind at all,” Ricci told the publication, before adding, “I don’t like how people approach me when I’m dressed up.”
Following up on that response, Ricci highlighted how she’s treated differently after she’s dressed up as Misty.” It’s like a strange social experiment gone wrong. People forget you’re an actress as soon as you put on Misty’s clothing, which includes a wig and spectacles “she stated “People are teasing you or making jokes about you, and they are taking a lot of liberties with you. To compensate, I had to be really cold and harsh.”
>”‘Don’t touch me’ had to be my attitude at all times. ‘What are you doing touching me for?’ People react to her appearance, which reveals a lot about how this person has lived their life “she continued. “I was simply thinking, Oh, this is so amazing, that they’ve forgotten I’m No. 3 on the call sheet just because I’m wearing this wig and spectacles.
Melanie Lynskey, Ricci’s co-star, spoke out about some of the mistreatment she received on set in another interview over the weekend. She told Rolling Stone that someone from the show’s production staff approached her and said, “What are your plans for the future?
I’m sure the producers will provide you a personal trainer for you. They’d be delighted to assist you with this.”Ricci, Juliette Lewis, and Tawny Cypress all rushed to her rescue, with Lewis even writing a letter to the show’s producers, according to her.Thankfully, “Yellowjackets” has already been renewed for a second season. Season 1 is now available to watch online.
