Okay, technically it’s your bi-weekly Christina fix, but I have a one-track mind sometimes. A reader named Sherri sent this to me, and as always, I am eternally grateful. It’s a pretty good interview with this blog’s favorite hottie. Christina Hendricks was awarded her first Emmy nomination for her role of Joan Harris in AMC’s Mad Men.
So not only is she a robo-babe, but she can also (apparently) act. Who knew? Here is a snippet of the interview.

Deadline Hollywood: Can you go anywhere without being recognized?
Christina Hendricks: It’s taken me some time to adjust to that. It’s been a little bit of a whirlwind, going 0 to 60 in a couple of years. But what you strive for is career longevity. The success of the show hopefully contributes to that. I had done 4 series in four years leading into Mad Men, so I’ve been plugging away at things for quite some time. The show has built over our four seasons, and it’s pretty weird to all of a sudden have people recognizing my name for the first time. It’s a really surreal feeling. But I’m not quite at the point where I feel the need to wear disguises in public.
DH: Is it weird to be a sex symbol?
CH: You know, the good part about that is maybe I’ve contributed to helping women appreciate themselves the way they are, that we don’t all have to be a Size 2 to be beautiful. Anything I’ve done to help change people’s minds about that is something to be proud of, I think.
It’s a decent interview, but Christina could have mentioned me for her ability to be recognized on the street. I mean, who else promotes her better than me?
