T Lo interviews Christina Hendricks
Darlings, we’ve had a tough time keeping this one under wraps but in the latest issue of Metrosource magazine, we got the chance to interview our current girl crush, Christina Hendricks, the fabulous Joan Holloway of Mad Men.
See, the theme of the issue is “People We Love” and our editor (We love saying “our editor.” It sounds so Lois Lane-y.) asked us if we had any ideas for interview subjects. We were all “People We Love? JOAN HOLLOWAY, bitch!” and he was all “I’m on it!” and then we were all “Score!”
She was a pleasure to interview and she’s absolutely nothing like Joan. She’s giggly and funny and sweet. She doesn’t even sound like Joan when she talks. Some bits:
You’ve become quite the poster child for curvaceous women. It seems every article about you has to mention your body.
I guess I’m surprised because this is how I’ve always looked. I’ve had lots of people come up to me on the street — women and men — and tell me how refreshing it is to see someone like me on TV. That feels really good. I’ve always felt like a woman, and I’ve always had curves and felt beautiful.
Well, clearly the women and straight men love you for it, but we’re here to tell you the gays LOVE Joan Holloway.
(Laughs) That’s fabulous!
We must have seen at least a half-dozen Joan Holloway drag queens on Halloween!
That’s so funny, because Matt Weiner [the show’s creator] said after the first couple of episodes, “I know we’re a success if I see Joan Holloways on Halloween.”
But don’t take our word for it, go read it.
