Why we love Christina Hendricks
As much as we enjoy Mad Men for all its depictions of adultery, alcoholism, back-stabbing, disease and existential angst, we know we’re not alone in saying that it’s Christina Hendricks as bossy, buxom bad-ass Joan who keeps us coming back, week after week. Poured into those 1960s mini-dresses and ultra-sturdy push-up bras, Hendricks looks like a 13-year-old boy dreamed her up in fit of crazed hormonal overload.
Although literally the most brilliantly voluptuous actress to ever grace a TV screen, Hendricks is more than mere delicious eye-candy. Aside from Mad Men, she’s proved her hardcore acting chops again and again, our personal favourite being her portrayal as moody mob-girl Blanch in super-cool electropop movie Drive. We literally screamed “Nooooo!” at the screen when (SPOILER) she was shot and killed. Nooooo!
