Mad Men's Christina Hendricks Embraces Her 'Pin-Up' Image on 'Cosmopolitan' U.K. Cover
The March issues of Cosmopolitan magazine are all about cleavage! Selena Gomez is flaunting her figure on the U.S. cover, while Christina Hendricks is showing off her own on the UK cover. Christina's curves were made famous by her role as Joan on Mad Men, and she's finally embracing her "pin-up" image.
"It’s incredibly flattering and surprising, and I didn’t think for a second when I started Mad Men that people would talk about me as being sexy or a pin-up," Christina admits in the new UK issue of Cosmopolitan (via The Daily Mail).
"My husband has a good laugh about it, of course." Her husband is Geoffrey Arend, who starred in (500) Days of Summer and who almost got away from Christina!
Christina, 36, was introduced to Geoffrey by her Mad Men co-star, Vincent Kartheiser, and was instantly attracted to him.
"Geoffrey walked in and I was like, ‘Who is this guy?’ He had amazing hair and was all dishevelled — he was running late and everyone was waiting for him," she explains. "He just came in with this very high energy.
"He was just charming, funny and very magnetic," Christina adds. "I got his number that night under the pretense of, 'We could just be friends.' And of course I immediately went home and Googled him."
But when Christina finally got to go on a date with him alone, she almost blew it!
"I cracked it out in such a big way. I was like, 'You make me want to have a family.' I freaked him out a bit...Thank God I didn’t spook him enough to make him leave."
And the rest is history!
Fans will be excited to know that Mad Men returns to AMC on March 25. We can't wait to see more of "pin-up" girl Christina!
