“Mad Men” star Christina Hendricks is constantly being asked about her body, as if the female form is some new phenomenon that she pioneered. Does she like her body? Does Hollywood pressure her about her body? This time, the Daily Mail wants to know if her much-discussed boobs are the real deal.
“It’s so bizarre that people are constantly asking if my breasts are real or fake,” she says. “They’re so obviously real that anyone who’s ever seen or touched a breast would know.”
“If there’s anything to be learned from me it’s that I’m learning to
celebrate what I was born with, even though it’s sometimes been
inconvenient,” she says. “Having larger breasts has made it harder for
me to shop throughout the years, but I’ve learned to love it.”
Are we done with that topic now? Hendricks also discusses her celebrated role in “Mad Men,” a show which she says changed her life. “It’s opened doors for more and better work
[including last year’s hit film Life As We Know It opposite Katherine
Heigl], which is ultimately what you want as an actor,” she says. Still, she’s not rushing to get out of TV and into movies. “Saying that, I’d
be happy if the show never finished,” she adds.
They also asked Hendricks, who has been married since 2009, about co-star Jon Hamm, who has women swooning across the globe. “Jon feels more of a brother to me, but listen, I’m a woman and I can
look at that man and say he’s astoundingly talented and astoundingly
attractive,” she says, though she’s not playing favorites. “But so are all the guys on the show. I mean John Slattery
[who plays Roger Sterling, Joan’s sometime lover] – he’s dashing and
charismatic as can be.”
Still, Don Draper isn’t exactly Hendricks’ type. “No, I’d run a mile! I like a man with a nice,
self-deprecating sense of humor,” she says.
