Stripping Stars Set a Bad Example: Christina Ricci

American actress Christina Ricci has slammed actress Lindsay Lohan for her role as a stripper in her upcoming movie, insisting that the troubled starlet has set a bad example for young and impressionable girls.

The 28-year-old admits that actresses like Lohan have created a culture of women who find flattery in misogyny.

“It used to be something that we (women) were sort of ashamed of. You didn’t want to admit to people that you were a stripper, The Sun quoted her as saying.

“But now, the hottest thing to say is ‘I can work a pole!’ Who gives a f***? But it’s a huge weird thing.

“I mean, you see actresses, and their passion project is to play a stripper. It’s just stupid, she added.
