Christina Ricci Was Sexually Harassed By 'Speed Racer' Chimp

Christina Ricci has had to deal with many situtations in her acting career, and when she signed on to do family friendly 'Speed Racer' the last thing she likely expected was a rowdy chimp.

"The chimp jumped over and grabbed my left breast and hung off me," Ricci tells Fox News in an interview. "It happened in the middle of the first take on the first day of shooting -- it was painful."

But since she wasn't sure how to deal with the chimp and did not want to "upset the chimp any further," she didn't try to get the chimp off and instead quietly tried to get the attention of the crew, who were facing the other direction.

"They thought it was hilarious and constantly reminded me the whole time we filmed."

Ricci plays Trixie in the Wachowski Brothers movie and says other than the chimp incident, she loved working on the film, and can't wait to work on another one: "Larry and Andy (Wachowski) created a world that they love and characters that they loved and are attached to. When we were all leaving, we were like 'write the sequel! We want to come back'."

"And they were like, 'I know. I know. We're going to. Don't worry'. They were as sad for it to be over as we were."
