Christina Hendricks holds a bow in this feature from V Magazine’s Sports Issue, featuring cover girl Jennifer Lopez. Christina Hendricks curves are the stuff of legend in the critically acclaimed, much loved series Mad Men. The actress reprises her role of office manager Joan Harris in the new series of the 1960s show which airs in the U.S. on March 25.
We love that Christina has set a health and realistic body type for women, and encourages them to be healthy and happy with their bodies!
Here’s what the 36-year-old Mad Men actress had to share on her character’s restrictive girdles and garters, “Now I put moleskin underneath the rubber so it doesn’t rub against my skin. I still get a little bruised up, but I’m learning the tricks of the trade.”
On her previous roles, “I used to play characters more naive than [Mad Men's] Joan, who is so sophisticated and … not jaded, but worldlier. I’ve definitely learned from playing a character that is so confident and resilient.”
On fame, “Oh, I can totally go unnoticed. I ran around all day today. Not a mention. In Los Angeles you know the neighborhoods where you’re more likely to get noticed. And then you probably put on lipstick.”
