CHRISTINA Hendricks is “thrilled” to be a sex symbol and role model.
The Mad Men beauty — who has won praise for her curvaceous figure — is “thrilled” to know she is desired by countless men while also being an inspiration to women around the world.
“I’m thrilled,” Christina said of her role model status. “I’d love to be thought of as that.
“Mad Men seems like a very masculine show but there are women who are obsessed by it. I think woman appreciate seeing female characters that aren’t just one dimensional.
“I certainly don’t think that more skin relates to sexiness or femininity. To me, falling out of the top of your pants is quite aggressive. It’s so hardcore you feel it’s almost being done to you.”
However, Christina admits she has little in common with her on-screen character Joan Holloway in the 60s-based TV show because she has more modern sensibilities.
“People always expect to see me in a pencil skirt! They say, ‘Wait a minute, you’re all 2010!’” she said.
“We’re all very powdered and sprayed and Joan is about control — and I don’t think I’m like that in real life — so I think I do come across as quite different.”
