Christina Hendricks: Body Talk Is “Boring”

By Wyatt Earp | March 1, 2010

According to the stunningly beautiful Christina Hendricks, all the talk about her amazing body is “boring.” Well, to her maybe . . .

Christina Hendricks thinks all the talk about her body is a little embarrassing. It’s not as if she has an extra limb, after all. She just has an especially attractive version of the same thing women have had forever—curves—but she happens to have them in a profession where women haven’t for quite some time.

“It kind of hurt my feelings at first,” she says. “Anytime someone talks about your figure constantly, you get nervous, you get really self-conscious. I was working my butt off on the show, and then all anyone was talking about was my body!”

I’m sorry, was she speaking? I couldn’t help looking at the above photos. Heh, I’m a pig.

You can see why all the focus on how big the chest, how narrow the waist, how round the hips could drive an actor—anyone—insane, but people were only noticing Christina Hendricks’s body because they were finally noticing Christina Hendricks. Her portrayal of Joan Holloway, the complicated office queen of Sterling Cooper (Draper Pryce!), on Mad Men is properly captivating for its combination of total competence and heartbreaking vulnerability. And she delivers the spectacular performance while looking extremely different from the other women we’ve grown used to seeing on television, in movies, on the covers of magazines. “It might sound silly,” she says, “but I didn’t realize I was so different. I was just oblivious. Sometimes I would go on an audition and someone would say something like, Girl, you’re refreshing! That was it.”

Oh Christina, you’re different, alright. But in an “Oh my God, you are so completely fantastic” kind of way!

    Damn was just about to get into a calculation involving the curl of the gradient of the local Higg’s field when Christina mentioned talking about her body again. Oink Oink!

    She’s a classic bombshell. Our generation’s Jayne Mansfield.

    I have never watched the show Mad Men!! But now that I know she doesn’t want me to talk about her INCREDIBLE body, maybe I will view it and let her acting skills shine through!

    Jon – Well, if she won’t do it, you know I’ll be happy to do so.

    Woody – No argument there. She’s my new favorite babe.

    Danny – Yeah, not bloody likely.

    USAdmiral – They broke the mold with her.

    Proof – Neither would I. I could watch her every minute of every day.

    Sully – Who cares?

    Mark – Hey, the line forms here!

    Budd – Damned fine point.

    TJS – Her acting is fine, but the rest of her is so much finer.

    Jon – And if I ever meet her, I’d be royally flushed.

    “Christina Hendricks thinks all the talk about her body is a little embarrassing.”

    Then maybe she should stop whipping her boobies out in every photo shoot.

    You guys and your comments remind me of that country song….”If I said you had a beautiful body would you hold it against me!”

    Maybe she should just do the nude shoot and then we can get it out of our systems and past it… I promise that I won’t look…yeah, that’s the ticket!
