Christina Ricci is raising children to be feminists. 

The Wednesday star is mom to son Freddie, eight, from her first marriage to James Heerdegen, and daughter, Cleopatra (Cleo), one, whom she shares with her husband, celebrity hairdresser Mark Hampton. 

In an interview with The Guardian, the 42-year-old actress said Freddie can’t help but be a feminist, because it’s being modeled for him at home.

‘My husband, Mark, is, I hate to say it ,because it sounds really obnoxious, a feminist,’ she admitted.

‘And Freddie is going to see that, and see his working mother. I think he’ll see women in a much more layered, complicated way, just by having grown up watching his mom do all this stuff.’

The proud mom says the third grader often teaches her a lesson or two.

‘He’s asking questions like, ‘Mom, is that racist?’ Or, ‘Mom, is that OK for women?’ He’s got this whole thing about not calling objects – like boats – she. He’ll correct me: ‘Women are not objects.” 

 The Matrix Resurrections actress says language plays a big role in society’s internalized misogyny, and deplores the B-word. 

‘When people say to me, ‘Oh what’s up, B?’ I will say, ‘Unless you’re going to rape me or beat me, please don’t call me a b**ch.”

As a mother, the actress has drawn a line in the sand about what kinds of roles she wants to tackle. 

‘I would never be able to play someone who is mean to a child. I can’t even read it if it’s in scripts. I have a lot less ability to handle extreme misery.’ 

Still, the former child star said she often has to edit herself.

‘Though I’m a strongly opinionated person and sometimes I can’t say those opinions. So I am aware of times when I don’t necessarily say what I mean.’
