Los Angeles, Jan 19 (IANS) Actress Christina Ricci, who plays a murderer in "Lizzie Borden Took an Ax", said that she was very exhausted after shooting the murder scenes for the film.

Ricci had to hack up bodies with an axe for the film, which is about a religion teacher accused of killing her parents, reports contactmusic.com.

"My arms got tired because the axe was heavy. You film scenes from a million different angles, and for every take I did 12 chops with the axe. My arms were ripped for about two days after. I didn't like getting fake blood in my hair though," Bang Showbiz quoted Ricci as saying.

The 33-year-old has earlier featured in films like "Buffalo '66", "The Opposite of Sex" and "Sleepy Hollow".
