Jenna Ortega Loved Dissecting Little Animals When She Was Kid

Describing herself as a weirdo, the former 'Stuck in the Middle' actress confesses she used to 'perform autopsies on little animals' when she was a little child.

AceShowbiz - Jenna Ortega loved performing "autopsies on little animals" as a child. While reflecting on her friendship with "Dance Moms" star Maddie Ziegler - whom she starred alongside in "The Fallout'", the 20-year-old star insists she feels like they are "the same person in different fonts" with the way they "instantly clicked" on set.

"She's such a weirdo and I'm a weirdo in the way I used to perform autopsies on little animals when I was younger. Little lizards that I found that were dead in my backyard," so she said when appearing on Wired's "Autocomplete Interview" series on YouTube.

"She's a weirdo in the sense that she breaks out into characters or movements or makes faces. Her comedic timing is so under appreciated. She makes me laugh. We have a good time. We're really weird together."

The "Scream" actress - who plays the titular role of Wednesday Addams in Tim Burton's new supernatural series - also recalled making things awkward with Christina Ricci. She worked with Ricci - who played the same character in 1991's "The Addams Family" and its 1933 sequel - on the spooky Netflix series, and her sense of humour was sometimes a bit much.

She added, "I feel like I personally made it a little weird. She was really sweet about it. Me? It was one of the most awkward experiences I've ever had. I think, socially, I can be kind of hard to communicate with at times. And sometimes I would say something as a joke, and I think I have a very dark sense of humour, and she would go, 'Uh, that's dark.' "

Meanwhile, Christina recently claimed that "every generation" should have their own version of Wednesday. The 42-year-old actress - who plays a new character in the Netflix show - said, "I love the spirit in which they were making the show."

"It really does retain a lot of the spirit of Wednesday - that dignity, that incredibly self-assured young girl who knows who she is and won't change or pander for other people. I think it's really great. Every generation should have their own Wednesday."
