Christina Ricci: Fame didn't affect me as a child

I didn't really take in being famous until I was much older

– Christina Ricci

Hollywood star Christina Ricci told us today that as a child actor she "didn't feel famous".

Known for her roles in The Addam's Family films and Casper, the 36 year old revealed she was too busy enjoying her time on set to feel the pressures of being in the public eye. "I didn't really take in being famous until I was much older," she said.

Prostate cancer: the biggest leap in decades

It's been called the biggest leap in decades. The latest prostate cancer breakthrough gives new hope to men suffering from the deadly condition. Suspected prostate cancer sufferers can undergo an initial MRI scan to improve detection of aggressive forms of the disease.

The initial MRI scan can potentially do the following:

  • Double the number of tumours caught
  • Reduce the number of men having biopsies by 27%
  • Reduce the number of men who are diagnosed with a cancer that later proves harmless by 5%
  • Save money for the NHS

  3. Could this be the biggest leap in prostate cancer diagnosis yet? Suspected prostate cancer sufferers should undergo an initial MRI scan to improve detection of aggressive forms of the disease and reduce the number of men undergoing unnecessary biopsies, a study has found.
