Christina Ricci has wowed a generation with her films — Casper, The Addams Family, Now and Then and Monster, to name a few — but these days the actress is focused on entertaining one audience member: her son Freddie.
“Having a child changed everything,” Ricci, 36, told PEOPLE at The Sound Lab presented by Audi at New York City’s Whitney Museum of American Art on Wednesday. “It’s made everything in my life actually important and matter. I now have to take things seriously, and I never did before.”
She adds: “I want to succeed for him. My choices matter more.”
