Not right, but nonetheless accurate, according to the IMDb.

According to Google she was born on a Tuesday, which is moderately appropriate since Chas Addams picked “Wednesday” as an oblique reference to Tuesday Weld. Or so the tale is told.

I always enjoy her work, especially in "Sleepy Hollow."  

Shocked to hear she's 40 as well.  I guess I thought she was at least 10 year younger than me (I'm 46.)

Well, the first ADDAMS FAMILY movie was nearly 30(!) years ago, so....

I've thought about this often, but I think modern film technology has helped to make "30 years ago" still seem like yesterday, to a lot of us of a certain age.

There was a majority of black & white movies and TV shows up until the mid '60s, and the '70s and early '80s utilized some grainy film stock, but once we get to the late '80s and beyond, film and video photography (and home video mastering) has progressed to the point where almost everything looks like it was filmed 10 minutes ago, regardless of time period.

And with HD TVs, it's certainly disconcerting to watch Christina Ricci in either of the ADDAMS FAMILY movies... and then read the same day that she just turned 40.  Makes your head spin!!

I always thought it was a reference to the Mother Goose poem, "...Wednesday's child is full of woe..."
