Try as she might to keep her head down and do her job (which is, by the way, being a kick-ass actress), Christina Hendricks is constantly dogged by fashion critics, tabloid reporters and magazine interviewers who only want to talk about her body.
In a recent clip picked up by the Sydney Morning Herald, the “Mad Men” star is asked yet again about her famous curves… in one of the most awkward, tactless ways we’ve ever seen.
The female interviewer for the Sun-Herald, who happens to be pretty petite herself, asks Christina with a smile, “You have been an inspiration as a full-figured woman. What is the most inspiring story that you can remember where you’ve inspired someone?” As if for emphasis (or in our case, extra cringing), she motions both hands in an hourglass shape on the words “full-figured.”
Christina remains poised yet chuckles awkwardly, shaking her head. “Uh, I don’t know. I don’t know…” she manages then motions to restart the portion of the interview.
Instead of taking the hint, the interviewer asks the question again, repeating the phrase “full-figure.” “I mean, you just said it again!” Christina says, throwing up her hands. The dense interviewer still doesn’t get it and must be waved off by a PR (who we imagine jumping up and down on the sidelines, mouthing “Shut it down! Shut it down!”).
We’re pretty sure the interviewer didn’t mean to ask, “When have you inspired someone by being fat?” but man, did it come off that way. Hendricks has had to deal with enough people — Cathy Horyn, Esquire, New York, the Daily Mail — commenting on her body shape to last a lifetime… she certainly didn’t need one more.
Christina Hendricks is on the cover of the November 2012 TV special issue of Glamour UK magazine.
The 37-year-old actress looked stunning in an orange floral dress for the Walter Chin shot front page while dishing about everything from her love life to how “Mad Men” changed her career.
On “Mad Men:”
“It’s completely changed my career. Instead of people wondering who you are, you walk in and they say, “I love your show”. It’s a nice way to start an audition.”
On her husband Geoffrey Arend:
“It just became very obvious to me, I was smitten. He makes me laugh and he’s my best friend and I would always rather be with him than not, so those are pretty good indications.”
On her career outside of “Mad Men:”
“I hate to ever think of it finishing. I have concerns about finding something I’m going to fall in love with as much. I’ve got a couple of things lined up for the next break, and I hope to enjoy my home and husband.”

The “Man Men” bombshell explains what Joan and Roger scene touched her most.
TV bosses at America’s Lifetime network are bringing the model/actress’ story to the small screen in a biopic and a number of famous faces are in contention for the lead role.
Mad Men star Hendricks and McCarthy are said to be the frontrunners to play Smith, who died at the age of 39 in 2007 after a drug overdose.
A source tells Britain’s Sunday Express newspaper, “They are neck and neck. The producers love them both and it could come down to a final audition to determine who will get one of the most sought-after parts in Hollywood right now. Both women really wowed the producers, who were especially bowled over by how strikingly similar Christina with a blonde wig looked to Anna Nicole.”
The Artist actor James Cromwell is rumoured to be signing up to play Smith’s wealthy older husband, Texan billionaire J. Howard Marshall, who died at the age of 90 just 14 months after their marriage.
Smith’s life story was previously told in an opera which ran at London’s famous Royal Opera House last year (11).
