Christina Hendricks, who’s pretty much my number one girl crush right now and has what can only be described as one of the hottest bodies ever, said that before Mad Men, she felt basically invisible due to Hollywood’s love of size zero women. Remind me again: exactly how many anorexic, size zero women have ever won an Oscar or had long-lasting careers? Oh yeah, that’s right: none of them.
“I’ve never quite felt like I fitted in. It’s as if I was invisible before Mad Men. Now people come up and say: ‘God, I love the show, I’m so-and-so,’ and I’m like, ‘I know, I had dinner with you three years ago.'”
[…] “I adore the incredibly tight clothing! My own wardobe’s changed – I’ve streamlined a little bit and definitely learnt from Joan’s sleekiness and tailoring. As for the herbal cigarettes, for the most part I don’t smoke as much as the guys do. I’m usually just strutting around a bit more so I don’t actually have to be inhaling it. I’m lucky because I do have scenes where the cigarettes work beautifully to punctuate certain things I’m saying.” SOURCE
You see, this is why Hollywood is just awful; if Ms. Hendricks walked by any man in the world, their eyes would pop out of their heads like one of those old-time cartoons, while their hearts beat right out of their chests. Now we’re of the mind that unless a woman can live off off Tic-Tacs, celery and Diet Coke, they’re nobodies!
Oh my God, did I actually make it through a Christina Hendricks post without mentioning her magical boobies of love and wonder? Damn I’m good. Oh wait … CRAP!
