“I got practically no responsibilities, my job’s a breeze, and I got a killer rack! Good morning!”
That old adage is hand painted on 6 foot portrait of myself hanging in the lobby of my office building. (Ok, it’s more like… on a Post-It note that is stuck to a picture of me drunk on St. Patrick’s Day 3 years ago that sits on my office desk.) Regardless, that quote comes to mind whenever I think of Christina Hendricks. She is launching herself into stardom and boobs only get you so far in Hollywood, so she has to have the goods.
Currently she is bedding Doogie Hower in the New York Philharmonic’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s ‘Company,’ guest starring on ‘Body of Proof,’ working the ‘Mad Men’ set and filming ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It.’ Her resume includes 31 titles and at least 15 magazine covers (and counting) since her rise in popularity. Christina may be known for her natural busty figure, but she will be remembered for her talent.
Here are some fun facts:
*She is actually blonde, but has dyed her hair red since she was 10.
*Hendricks started as a teen model.
*Her measurements are rumored to be 39D-30-39.
*Voted Best Looking American Woman by Esquire magazine in 2010.
*Has been nominated for SyFy Awards (won), Screen Actors Guild Awards (won), Emmy Award.
*UK Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone dubbed her positive influence for women and stated: “Christina Hendricks is absolutely fabulous… We need more of these role models. There is such a sensation when there is a curvy role model. It shouldn’t be so unusual.”
As a fellow curvy dame, I appreciate her attitude and talent. When I was in high school the Itty Bitty Titty Committee would tease me by asking, “When God was handing out brains were you off asking for a double helping of boobs?” Those C.U.Next Tuesdays have since developed a coke habit (not the carbonated beverage), would suck the alcohol out of a stick of deodorant and turned into such a disaster that Red Cross wouldn’t give her coffee.
Enjoy some pics of Christina’s lusciousness with Neil Patrick Harris and her guest appearance on ABC. You can see her spot on ‘Body of Proof’ April 19th at 10 pm ET.
