Christina Hendricks: ‘Everyone Wants Me’
While you guys spent all day yesterday arguing how/if she’s obese, Christina Hendricks was busy telling Harper’s Bazaar how every single person regardless of gender or sexual orientation wants to take home a hulking slab of ginger:
On everyone wanting a ticket to Motorboat Euphoria:
“Women hit on me,” she chuckles. “My husband thinks it’s so odd that so many women hit on me.” Gay men too. “They say to me, ‘Well, I’m not straight, but if I was…’ I think it’s so flattering.”
On how she never worried about her figure until the media noticed:
“When the attention started to become about my figure, I was surprised, because it wasn’t something I was focused on. And then it became very positive, and people were saying very nice things.”
On enabling women to pretend they’re curvy and not all prone to heart disease:
A fan approached her and said, “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.’ I got teary eyed.”
I honestly don’t know how I feel about all this, so let’s just cut straight to the deepest, rawest heart of the matter: Giant breasts.
On that note, if you want people to think you’re just a beautiful, curvaceous woman, and not another sad byproduct of American excess, perhaps you shouldn’t participate in photo shoots where you’re devouring everything in sight. Just a thought.
