Christina Hendricks is featured on the cover of Capitol File’s Fall Fashion 2010 issue.
Here’s an extract from the interview:
On going against her agents’ advice and taking a role on Mad Men : “By that point I had been in four different series and done a lot of guest-star spots on things and none of them went as I thought they were going to. So I did the thing that I wanted to do. I’m glad that I didn’t let people bully me into something that would have been about a larger network or more money. I just kind of trusted my gut.”
On attending the SAGs after taking media criticism at the Golden Globes: “In every photo there’s this look of fear on my face. A week earlier I had been so happy and felt so gorgeous and everyone said such mean things to me, so I had this concerned look.”
On staying true to what matters: “I’m really trying to remain true to myself. But on occasion, my stylist will go, ‘Absolutely not. You will get killed.’ I always go back to the stuff I love. Hopefully, people will see who I am and accept it.”
