Gotta love that in NY during fashion week when the skinny girls are running around the runways that the woman who makes the cover of NY Magazine's fashion issue is a normal sized woman. Let's make this crystal clear. Christina Hendricks is not big. She is not fat. She is beautiful.
Here's what she said about the ridiculousness that was the tizzy at last month's Golden Globes over the fact that there is a woman working in Hollywood that actually has with boobs, hips and a butt. Newsflash Hollywood - most of us outside of your zip code actually do have these body parts.
It kind of hurt my feelings at first,” she says. “Anytime someone talks about your figure constantly, you get nervous, you get really self-conscious. I was working my butt off on the show, and then all anyone was talking about was my body!”
As for the body question, she’ll answer it when asked, but mostly it bores her. “It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth,” she says. “Back when I was modeling, if someone said ‘I’m fasting,’ I would say, ‘Can’t we talk about something else?
I love her.
