Ricci says she fought hard for the role and had a good audition, but filmmakers were unsure if she could tap into the character's carnal desires.
She explains, "My agent started inundating Craig Brewer with photo shoots I had done that are pure sex shots!"

"This is just a microcosmic example of the over-sexualization of young girls and children. Even though she's not really a child, she looks like one."
