Christina Ricci admits love of gambling

US film actress, star of The Addams Family, has revealed a newfound love of gambling.

The 27-year-old actress, who is due back on the big screen in the upcoming film Speed Racer, admitted she quickly became fascinated by gambling on a recent trip to Australia.

"I've learned to love gambling," Ricci said during a visit to Las Vegas.

"I was in Australia for a few months and gambling is like a national pastime there, so I learned to love betting on horses, and now I even put in a few football bets, and I'm kind of obsessed and into it. Gambling is pretty good."

However, Ricci admits that she rarely wins on the horses.

"I have no strategy with horses and I never pick winners. But it's still fun," she said.
