London: Hollywood actress Christina Ricci says that she is scared of plants.

The 30-year-old actress admits she can`t even go near a plant at someone`s house because the soil makes her feel “dirty”.

“They are dirty! If I have to touch one, then it freaks me out. Honestly, I can`t go near them,” contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.

The ‘Speed Racer’ star also struggles in the kitchen and admits she can only cook two dishes.

“I can cook about two things. I can boil hot water for the only pasta I can make. I blame my career, actors work crazy schedules and we are away so often. I just don`t have the time to learn how to make stuff. But I need to, when you get back home after shooting there is always a great desire to create some kind of normalcy,” she said.
