Christina Hendricks, the sex bomb from Mad Men, got a lot of fans in our Skinny Versus Curvy battle a few weeks back. Click here if you missed it!
It’s pretty obvious that Christina’s figure stands out in skinny Hollywood, due to her extremely curvy, voluptuous and hourglass shape (not to mention that we get red hair instead of blond and pale instead of tanned). Here’s what she had to say about her shapely body in Page Six:
“I was a model for years, and even when I was 19 years old and 115 pounds [and 5Â´8Ë], my agency said, ‘Your ankles are a little large. If you could lose 10 pounds, that would be really great,'” I’ve always had b~~~~ and hips, even when I was 115 pounds. And here I am, much heavier than when I was modeling, and all of a sudden people are giving me positive feedback. Sure, I’d be happier with 10 pounds off-wouldn’t every woman? But at the same time, when I looked at myself in those red carpet pictures, I thought, ‘Oh my God, I looked beautiful.’ I didn’t tear myself apart.”
“No one will send me dresses,” she says. “Designers loan size 2 or 4 samples to actresses, but I’m not that size. It’s like I’m a freak because I’m curvy and I can’t squeeze into those things. I’ve had some problems with that.”
