The women are envious of her, and the men drool over her!
Christina Hendricks is indeed, the symbol of perfection, that is so rare to find in today’s weight-obsessed world.
Not only is this lady beautiful in every sense of the word, but she also knows it, and loves to flaunt it!
So where does that confidence to be proud of her curves and old-school looks in the age of size-zero models come from?
Christina attributes her unconventional attitude and self-confidence to being born up in a small town in Idaho.
She laughs, saying that they were probably the last people in the country to get a VCR and a cable connection, but that backwardness is exactly what helped in keeping her away from the obsession with glamour, and realizing that she was perfect just the way she was.
When Christina forayed into the modeling industry, one of the first demands that was made of her was to lose weight.
While most other actresses her age were busy crash dieting and starving themselves to attain ‘perfect’ figures, Christina refused to as much as shed a pound.
Looking back at the time, she remembers thinking of how silly her agent was, to tell her to lose weight, because she believed that her shape was because of her bone structure and none of that was going to change, even if she lost weight.
Christina later called it quits with this agent, when she accepted the offer to work on Mad Men, against his advice.
Apparently, the actress wished to work on the show because she loved the script, but the agent was against it, because of the network it was on.
As always, Christina followed her heart, and accepted the role, which ended up being a life-changing move for her, not just professionally, but also personally.
After all, it was on this very show that she met the man who was to be her future husband, Geoffrey Arend!
Tune in to the Mad Men episodes to treat yourself to this breathtakingly beautiful star, who is not just a delight to look at, but also a splendid performer!
