Christina Hendricks: ‘People have been telling me to lose weight for years’

christina-hendricks-struts - Christina Hendricks: 'People have been telling me to lose weight for years'

Christina Hendricks has something interesting to share with us:

“I started out as a model and when I went to Italy to build my modelling book I gained 15 pounds from all the pasta and cappuccinos.

“I saw my body change and I loved how it changed my appearance and how it made me look more womanly and sexy.”

I love my body as it is. People in the industry have been telling me to lose weight for years but I like the way I look. I give credit to my mom for helping me feel good about my appearance – for making sure I never felt embarrassed about my body, because she was never worried about looking too big.”

… says Christina.

On her curves, and being a curvy role model: “When the attention started to be about my figure, I was surprised, because it wasn’t something I was focused on. And then it became very positive, and people were saying very nice things.” During Mad Men’s first season, she and Arend were at dinner when a fan approached her and said, “‘Excuse me, I just want to tell you that I watch your show, and you make me feel better about myself. I am a curvy woman, and you’ve made me feel sexy and beautiful.’ I got teary eyed.” Christina tears up again at the memory. “I remember Geoffrey saying, ‘That’s what you’re doing for people. That’s amazing.’ And I said, ‘I’m just trying to be a good actress and trying to tell a story, but if this is the sidebar, all this positivity, then that is awesome.’”
