Christina Hendricks is a Terrible Role Model

In an interview for the latest issue of Health magazine, Christina Hendricks extols the virtues of packing on the pounds to feel “like a woman” which is making it hard for me to defend her until the new season of Mad Men gives me a scotch-filled boner and I forget everything I’m about to say after this quote:

I guess my mom raised me right. She was very celebratory of her body. I never heard her once say, “I feel fat.” Back when I was modeling, the first time I went to Italy I was having cappuccinos every day, and I gained 15 pounds. And I felt gorgeous! I would take my clothes off in front of the mirror and be like, Oh, I look like a woman. And I felt beautiful, and I never tried to lose it, ’cause I loved it. [Laughs.]

Okay, I’ll give Christina Hendricks this, it’s not always hot to see models who look like Holocaust survivors, so encouraging those women to slap on 15 pounds might not be a bad idea. Everyone else, it stops being cute halfway through the first attempt. I don’t care how giant and freakishly hypnotic the ass on your chest ends up getting. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m suddenly compelled to mail Christina Hendricks a stack of pancakes. Yes, masters….
