Christina Ricci and Owen Benjamin: The Reason Behind Their Breakup
She never eats food!
Christina Ricci and Owen Benjamin met last year while on the set of their joint film, All’s Faire in Love and it was instant romance. After a few months of dating, they were engaged to be married this March, but earlier this month, Owen decided to call it off.
It turns out that one of the major problems that Christina has may have been the main cause of the breakup. My movie set source tells me, “Christina never ate food! She drank liquids but hardly touched a single bite of actual food. It is bizarre, but she stays so tiny and thin because she doesn’t really eat. Owen was active and fun, but it had to frustrate him how little she ever actually ate. Christina is very focused on her body image and doesn’t see how attractive she really is. It did not help their relationship.”
The two worked out constantly and Owen kept her laughing, but in the end they couple had too many differences to work out for a marriage. “Christina has a different view on marriage that is a skewed by her parent’s divorce. Owen is a really sweat guy who will always care about her, but it all became too much to handle. They are still friends and have stayed in touch. There’s always a chance they could get back together – he made her laugh all the time and she loved that.”
