Men Not the Only Fans Madly in Love with Christina Hendricks

October 6, 2010

Christina Hendricks, who plays the sexy, curvy Joan Harris on Mad Men, says she gets hit on all the time… and not just by men.

Christina Hendricks gets a lot of attention these days. So much so that she has to fend off male and female admirers with a stick. In the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Hendricks reveals that women hit on her all the time. She tells the mag, “Women hit on me. My husband thinks it's so odd that so many women hit on me.”

Who can blame them? Hendricks does not reveal if she has ever been tempted to flirt back with one of her Sapphic admirers.

Hendricks says she thinks so many women hit on her primarily because she has become a role model for curvier women. Hendricks says one woman recently approached her saying, “'Excuse me, I just want to tell you that I watch your show, and you make me feel better about myself. I am a curvy woman, and you've made me feel sexy and beautiful.'” Hendricks says the episode made her “teary-eyed.”

Hendricks credits her upbringing for her healthy body image. She says her mother was always curvy, never dieted, or suggested Hendricks should.
