Quotable: Christina Hendricks, Gorgeous After Gaining 15 Pounds

“I guess my mom raised me right. She was very celebratory of her body. I never heard her once say, ‘I feel fat.’ Back when I was modeling, the first time I went to Italy I was having cappuccinos every day, and I gained 15 pounds. And I felt gorgeous! I would take my clothes off in front of the mirror and be like, Oh, I look like a woman. And I felt beautiful, and I never tried to lose it, ’cause I loved it.”

KROQ Asks, Is Christina Hendricks Full Figured Or Fat?

Radio station KROQ has just a brilliantly creative content creation department: A poll on their website, by someone named “Psycho Mike,” is just aching to generate outraged page views by asking, “Christina Hendricks — Full Figured Or Fatness?”

“I feel like she could lose a couple of pounds … Everyone on the staff (including men, not just bitter women) disagrees with me. What do you think?”

Hmm, what do I think? Keep reading »

15 Words That Are Maybe Even Better Than “Beautiful”

Christina Hendricks’ advice for men in the May issue of Esquire is overflowing with juicy gems — hell, her argument that men should use the word “panties” more because it’s “sexy,” “girlie,” and “naughty” even won me over. (Just don’t try and bring back “moist,” Miss Holloway.) Another quote had me thinking that maybe she’d been reading The Frisky.

“There are better words than beautiful. Radiant, for instance. It’s an underused word. It’s a very special word. ‘You are radiant.’ Also, enchanting, smoldering, intoxicating, charming, fetching.”

Christina Hendricks Declared “Best-Looking Woman” By Esquire

So, the pretentious nerds/tools who work at Esquire got together and decided that Christina Hendricks — who, duh, plays Joan Holloway on “Mad Men” — is the most “good-looking” woman in the world. Adriana Lima and Megan Fox came in second and third. Look, I love me some Christina Hendricks and would not kick her outta bed for eating crackers, but if Esquire thinks she is so super good-looking, why did they Photoshop her cover image to look like Julianne Moore? Just wondering. [Celebutopia] Keep reading »

How Marriage Changes Things

Newlyweds Christina Hendricks and her husband of five months, Geoffrey Arend, talked to People magazine recently about marriage and their new life together. Among a few cutesy things the couple said, Arend admitted that: “Having the ring on my finger it makes me realize this is the person I’ve chosen for the rest of my life. So everything that was a small little problem that could have turned into a fight, just sort of disappeared. We’re both very happy.” Like Arend and Hendricks, I’m a newlywed, too, and still in that stage where, when I run into people I haven’t seen in a while, they ask me: “How’s married life?” I usually just smile and say, “It’s good.” I hadn’t thought to describe it the way Arend does — that little problems have disappeared — and I don’t even know that that’s true for us, but there is a … difference. And it’s a difference I’ve heard a lot of other newly married couples struggle to articulate. Even in this era of shacking up before marriage, when it doesn’t seem like a piece of paper could change things that much, there’s a very discernible difference, noticeable almost immediately. At least, it seems to be the case for most couples, and certainly for my husband and me. Have you felt it, too? How would you describe the difference? Keep reading »

Quotable: Christina Hendricks Bored With Focus On Her Body

“It kind of hurt my feelings at first. 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! It might sound silly, 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.”

—Christina Hendricks talks to New York magazine about the obsession over her body despite her considerable other talents. Keep reading »
