Last night, the 2nd annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards were held. The big winners were … well, there were a lot of winners. But Christina Hendricks and Jon Hamm were honored for their work on “Mad Men,” Tina Fey won for “30 Rock,” and even Danny Devito took home a prize (the “Television Icon Award,” natch).
But what were they wearing? Click through to find out.
“Well, everyone knew [Joan's husband] had to go at some point, right? I mean, you can’t rape your wife in the office and not expect to go away. … It was the first time it was mentioned and I think it was a long time coming, for the audience in particular. I think everyone kept thinking he was going to go off to war and die at war. But I think Matt [Weiner] probably had a very good time keeping him around while people were going, ‘What’s going on with this guy?’ [Laughs] And he just kept being there and he just kept coming home! And I would have been disappointed if there wasn’t a moment that the rape, and that instant, wasn’t mentioned. So I found it very satisfying that she finally got to say, ‘You’re not a good man. And you know exactly what I’m talking about.’ And every viewer knows exactly what you’re talking about too, so it’s just this very satisfying moment.”
– Christina Hendricks talks to GQ about Joan Holloway Harris’s soon-to-be-ex douchebag doctor husband, who raped her in season two. There have been more than a few rapes and sexual assaults on “Mad Men,” but Joan’s was probably the most shocking. Not every person saw it as rape because they were engaged, seemingly a happy couple together, and she’s such a sexual woman. Yet Joan clearly didn’t want to have sex inside Don Draper’s office and her then-fiancé forced himself on her anyway, so viewers not only had to confront the fact that Joan’s “perfect man” was not as perfect as we thought, but also that date rape is a thing that happens, including by people you love.

It was a big weekend for celebrity nude pics! (No, Lindsay Lohan didn’t agree to pose for Playboy again.) Christina Hendricks and Olivia Munn both had alleged nude cell phone pics leaked online. Most of the photos feature women who at least look like Hendricks and Munn in varying states of undress; you can clearly see their faces in a few of the photos, but not in the ones that are the “raciest,” i.e. feature bare breasts and/or lady business. A few of “Olivia”‘s photos have text written on them, lewdly addressing a guy named Chris, whom some on the internet have speculated to be Chris Pine. And not that this is proof of anything, but I did have that familiar urge to motorboat upon seeing “Christina”‘s topless photo. Anyway, click through to see them all. [UPDATE: Er, not. The alleged photos of Munn were taken down.] Relatively SFW with links to NSFW versions… [via ONTD]

Christina Hendricks channels her inner huntress in the latest issue of V Magazine. We’re a little bit frightened by the images of her handling a cross-bow. We’re also a little bit turned on. This isn’t the first time a star has appeared in an photo spread, posing with something kinda strange. Click through to see more stars with bizarre accessories. [Buzzfeed]

“I grew up on the TV show, and I had Wonder Woman Underoos, and my brother had a Wonder Woman doll — sorry, Aaron, you’re exposed. And Nicolas said, when we were on set, ‘I want you to be Wonder Woman.’ And I think he is such an extraordinary and exceptional director, that if he asked me to do it, I would do it in a heartbeat … Hopefully the stars would align. It would be really fun. It would be cool, wouldn’t it? I’d get to kick ass.”
—Christina Hendricks talks to NYMag.com about how Nicolas Winding Refn, her director for “Drive,” has said that he wants to direct a reboot of “Wonder Woman” with her in the lead role. I know David E. Kelley’s re-imagining of the classic, starring Adrienne Palicki, barely got off the ground. But even though this project hasn’t even been greenlit yet, can I buy tickets now? It sounds awesome. [NY Mag]
After the jump Nicolas Winding Refn’s take. Keep reading »
“It’s so bizarre that people are constantly asking if my breasts are real or fake. They’re so obviously real that anyone who’s ever seen or touched a breast would know.”
— Christina Hendricks is in the unenviable position of repeatedly answering questions about her boobs. But she’s also in the enviable position of having Christina Hendricks’ boobs, so that about evens out, right? [Daily Mail UK]

Hey, now! Playboy magazine has unearthed some “rare” photos of flame-haired, “Mad Men” star Christina Hendricks taken for the July 1999 issue. Apparently, the photo featuring the not-yet-famous actress was part of a spread on “summer shooters,” i.e., drinks. It looks like she wasn’t having a hard time getting that Jersey boy to take his medicine. Personally, we prefer the red hair to the peroxide-blond wig. Guys everywhere must be mad to see that while Hendricks may be in Playboy, naked she ain’t. [The Smoking Jacket] Keep reading »
