Christina Hendricks is “too sweet” for Woody Allen

Mad Men star Christina Hendricks has revealed that it is her dream to work with Woody Allen and that she was crushed when she didn’t get a part in his movie last year – despite auditioning for the role.In an interview with the UK edition of Marie Claire, Hendricks, 34, who plays curvy Joan Holloway in the hit US drama, admitted that one of her biggest disappointments was missing out on a role in one of Allen’s flicks.

She said: “It’s always been a dream of mine to work with Woody Allen. I had an audition last year, but didn’t get the role, and it kind of hurt my heart.”

She added: “He [Allen] said I was too sweet. I guess if you’re not going to get something, that’s a good reason, right?”

Mad Men Season 4 Coming in July!

According to a press release just received at ML HQ, the fourth season of Mad Men is set to debut in July.

When in July, of course, remains a mystery. Though since the series debuted on July 17, 2007, you probably couldn’t go too wrong keeping Sunday, July 18 open on your calendar.

Christina Hendricks Awed by High-Tech Hubby

Geoffrey Arend, the new hubby of Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, is mad for gadgets.

Hendricks said Arend, whom she married in October 2009, has tricked out their Los Angeles home with technology that “blows her mind.”

“The house is rigged,” the voluptuous redhead told PEOPLE Thursday at Ann Taylor’s 2010 Fall Fashion collection showing in the lobby of New York’s Ace Hotel. “He’s got a projector in the guest room with the screen that comes down. We watch movies in bed.

“And everything is wireless,” Hendricks, 34, added. “If he goes out of town, I’m in trouble, because I don’t know how everything works.”

But Arend, 32, who played the sidekick pal in (500) Days of Summer, already has a backup plan for his tech-averse wife. “We’ve got a projector set up with streaming video,” he says. “I have this remote control. All you have to do is press the help button and it fixes everything automatically.”

Even with all their newfangled technology, the couple has some old-fashioned views of romance. “I was just thinking the other day, ‘Oh gosh, I just want to go home and read a book in bed next to my husband,’ ” Hendricks said. “And sleep … Oh, I get to do that every day until I die. It’s a nice feeling.”

Added Arend: “Having the ring on my finger it makes me realize this is the person I’ve chosen for the rest of my life. So everything that was a small little problem that could have turned into a fight, just sort of disappeared. We’re both very happy.”

Barbie goes Mad Men

After three seasons, “Mad Men,” the television series about advertising in the 1960s, has attained a level of popular-culture cachet. There have been magazine cover articles, calendars and an episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” all devoted to it, spoofs on “The Simpsons” and “Saturday Night Live,” and even a “Mad Men” category on “Jeopardy.”

Soon, the show will enter a realm of the pop-culture pantheon that its creator, Matthew Weiner, says has surprised even him: Mattel plans to bring out versions of Barbie and Ken styled after four “Mad Men” characters.

The dolls are part of a premium-price collectors’ series for adults that Mattel calls the Barbie Fashion Model Collection. Although there have been Barbies and Kens based on other TV series, among them “I Love Lucy” and “The X-Files,” the dolls will be the first licensed line for that collection, Mattel says, with a suggested retail price of $74.95 each.

Mattel is licensing rights to the characters from Lionsgate, the studio that produces “Mad Men” for the AMC cable channel. There will be 7,000 to 10,000 copies of each doll, to be sold in specialty stores and on two Web sites, amctv.com and barbiecollector.com.

The characters to become dolls are Don Draper, the show’s leading man; his wife, Betty; his colleague at the Sterling Cooper agency, Roger Sterling; and Joan Holloway, the agency’s office manager who was Roger’s mistress.

That two dolls represent a relationship outside wedlock, and Don Draper’s propensity for adultery, may be firsts for the Barbie world since the brand’s introduction five decades ago. But for the sake of the Barbie image, her immersion in the “Mad Men” era will go only so far: The dolls come with period accessories like hats, overcoats, pearls and padded undergarments, but no cigarettes, ashtrays, martini glasses or cocktail shakers.
