Christina Ricci talks about some of the less glamorous moments of her long Hollywood career.

Ricci, 43, opened up about his time as a child star and how things have changed for young actors now during an appearance on “The View” on Wednesday.

Co-host Sara Haines asked the ‘Yellowjackets’ star, “How different do you think it is, for this cast, these younger versions, compared to when you were in this phase? “

“It’s really great. Us older women talk about it all the time. It’s amazing that they don’t necessarily have to go through the things that we had to go through. They’re able to say, ‘ I don’t want to do this sex scene,” “I’m not going to be naked,” Ricci said.

She continued, “They can set themselves limits that we were never allowed to do. Someone threatened to sue me once because I didn’t want to do that sex scene a certain way. It’s really changed and it’s great to see.
