Corsets and Curves

Christina Hendricks Tired of Body Scrutiny

Voluptuous Mad Men star Christina Hendricks is sporting a corset—and lots of cleavage—on the cover of New York magazine's spring fashion issue. The 34-year-old's curves have recently attracted more attention than her acting, with a New York Times blogger calling her a "big" girl in her Golden Globes coverage. “It kind of hurt my feelings at first,” Hendricks says of all the body scrutiny. “Any time someone talks about your figure constantly, you get nervous, you get really self-conscious. I was working my butt off on the show, and then all anyone was talking about was my body!” Hendricks, who poses with her red Rapunzel-like hair wrapped around her lacy lingerie, says the body question actually bores her. "It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth," she says.
