Christina Ricci skips movie premiere for Pan Am filming

Christina Ricci was forced to skip the New York premiere of her upcoming movie All's Faire In Love on Tuesday (26Oct11) due to filming commitments for her new TV series Pan Am.

The former child star was due to appear at Manhattan's Regal Union Square theater to promote the romantic comedy, but she had to withdraw from the event at late notice, leaving director Scott Marshall to walk the red carpet alone.

Event representatives blamed Christina Ricci's absence on her "rigorous shooting schedule" for Pan Am, in which she stars as a 1960s flight attendant for the famous and now defunct airline.
