Christina Hendricks: I scold men who stare

Christina Hendricks has got used to men staring at her, but doesn't always like it.

Christina Hendricks tells men off if they stare at her “too intently”.

The Mad Men star is renowned for her voluptuous figure, which she shows off in low-cut and slim-fitting dresses. Her appearance tends to attract attention wherever she goes, which Christina has learnt to deal with.

“Men will stare and there’s nothing you can do except let a guy know if he’s staring too intently,” she told British newspaper The Sun.

“I know I have a figure and I long ago decided that I wouldn’t starve myself and try to become one of those typically skinny actresses. I’m completely comfortable with my body.”

Christina and her husband Geoffrey Arend have been married since 2009 and she couldn’t be happier in their union. When they tied the knot the actress knew their life together would be “beautiful” and she has been blown away by how close they’ve become.

“I feel I’ve grown closer to him and we’re sharing so much every day in terms of how we feel and how we see our lives moving forward together,” she explained.

“I’m more aware now of making sure silly things never cause problems between us and being very protective of our time with each other.”

The sixth series of US TV drama Mad Men recently hit screens, with Christina portraying ambitious Joan Harris. Creator Matthew Weiner has previously said season seven will be the show’s last, but Christina maintains some hope that it will continue longer.

“We try not to think about it too much although we know we’re getting closer to the end. Our contracts run out next year but I’m still hoping Matt Weiner, the series creator, will change his mind and realise we need to do at least one or two more seasons,” she laughed.

“I don’t know whether I will ever get to play another character as interesting as the one I’m playing now or be able to have such great lines and scenes to do.”

Mad Men also stars Jon Hamm and January Jones and is about an advertising agency in the ’60s.
