Christina Ricci reveals Johnny Depp 'explained what homosexuality was' to her when she was nine

Two-time Emmy nominee Christina Ricci revealed that three-time Oscar nominee Johnny Depp “explained to her what homosexuality was” when she was nine years old.

The 42-year-old former child star was on the Massachusetts set of Mermaids, her first film, with co-star Winona Ryder in 1989 when someone accused someone of being “homophobic.”

“I was like, ‘Well, I don’t understand what that is.’ And I was in Winona’s trailer and she said, “I don’t know how…”‘ Christina recalled on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM Show Thursday.

“So she put me on the phone with… [her boyfriend] Johnny. And Johnny explained it to me. In the simplest terms, yes. He said, “It’s when a man wants to have sex with a man. And when a woman wants to have sex with a woman.” And I was like, “Oh, okay.”‘

Cohen wondered why Ricci didn’t ask her on-screen mom – gay icon Cher – about homosexuality and she replied, “I know, we were talking about [to her trailer]!’

The 59-year-old 1990s heartthrob was 26 and the 50-year-old Oscar nominee was 17 when they embarked on their four-year romance, which ended in 1993.

The Cali-born, New Jersey-raised actress went on to film her first sex scene with Johnny in Sally Potter’s 2000 indie drama The Man Who Cried, which she described as “weird” for being like a “big brother.”

“It was a bit weird,” Christina said Weekly entertainment in 2001.

“Every time you’re like two pigs rooting for 20 men or women on a set, it’s a little bizarre, especially with someone you met when you were 9 and he was 26. But we get along so well that we both laugh it off and say, “This is really annoying.”‘
