Mysterious, Spooky Christina Ricci As Morticia Addams Pic Exposed As Fake

It's been 22 years since Christina Ricci last appeared as the not-so neat or sweet Wednesday Addams in "Addams Family Values," meaning that the now 35-year old actress could feasibly play the family's creepy matriarch Morticia. A kooky picture popped up on Tumblr that turned that very thought into a reality -- even if the image itself turned out to be a fake.

The picture features an adult Ricci in Morticia's get-up -- with a plunging neckline the likes of which Carolyn Jones or Anjelica Huston never encountered. There's no witch's shawl in sight! But to everyone out there losing their minds over seeing Wednesday follow in her mother's effortlessly gliding footsteps, know that the image is a fake. Yahoo! Movies found the original publicity photo of Huston's Morticia and posted a side-by-side comparison.

ICYMI, that Christina Ricci as Morticia Addams photo... is a fake after all. http://t.co/TVVu7zrWUu pic.twitter.com/k05I7kcjS7
