There are two things that come to mind when I envision Christina Hendricks, her beauty and God-given gifts. Hendricks played the sassy Joan Holloway on AMC’s Mad Men. Much like her character, she is the object of many men’s fantasies and for good reason. As it would seem she also draws praise from women as well as British Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone praised Hendricks for her hour-glass figure and said “We need more role models like these”.
The term model was not a stretch when describing Hendricks as she moved to New York from Fairfax, Virginia at the age of 18 to pursue a career in modeling. Her credits includes over 15 big and small screen roles. The 5′-7″ actress/model is the daughter of a Forest Ranger and psychologist, who was born in Knoxville, Tennessee on March 3, 1975.
While her body seems to get plenty of attention her screen work has not gone unnoticed as she has won 2 Screen Actor Guild, 1 Golden Nymph, 2 Critic Choice Television Awards, while being nominated for 6 Primetime Emmy’s. It’s safe to say Hendricks is much more than a beautiful smile and hour-glass figure.
But the heart breaker for all men began in 2009 when she married her present husband, Geoffery Arend. The couple has no plans on having any kids as they both focus on their careers.
The future looks bright for Hendricks as 2016 look to be a busy year for the actress. She has plans to be in 4 feature films this year alone including Zoolander 2 and one of my personal favorites to return, Bad Santa 2. The sky is the limit for this stunning actress and if she can handle Hollywood they way she did a room full of sexist men, there is no doubt she will be okay.
