Published by Flo in Articles and Interviews,Miscellaneous . - Feb 04 , 2012

Christina Hendricks struck gold when she was hunting for her wedding dress – she found her dream gown while she was searching for a Golden Globes outfit.

Actor Geoffrey Arend proposed to the Mad Men beauty in late 2008 but Hendricks was in no hurry to plan her look for the big day.

She went for a dress fitting with designer Carolina Herrera for 2009′s Golden Globe awards – and instantly fell in love with the “perfect” gown for her wedding.

Hendricks tells Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine, “It was a classic column dress by Carolina Herrera with a sweetheart neckline, and a vintage-looking bustle on the back. It was the only one I tried on!

“I’d been to get a dress for the Golden Globes and, while I was there, they said, ‘Why don’t you try this?’ It was perfect.”

The actress and Arend married on 11 October, 2009.

“Mad Men” season five to debut in UK two days after US premiere
Published by Flo in Mad Men,News and Rumours . - Feb 03 , 2012

The fifth season of Mad Men will debut in the UK just two days after its US premiere.

The AMC drama – which stars Jon Hamm and Christina Hendricks – will air on Sky Atlantic from March 27.

The new run will begin with two-hour premiere ‘A Little Kiss’, penned by series creator Matthew Weiner.

“There’s a time jump,” said Weiner. “There are some new people. Changes have happened off screen, and the audience will have to catch up with that. Even though Don (Hamm) ended up making this overture to Megan (Jessica Paré), and the audience felt sort of peculiar about it, so did the people in the office. That’s something that we play on.”

Weiner previously hinted that future episodes will include “a feeling of being in the midst of change”.

“There’s this sensation, which I think people have right now… there is just so much change going on,” the showrunner explained. “I don’t know if anybody else identifies with that, but that’s a big part of the season. Just trying to hold on.”

Following the addition of Sky Atlantic to Sky Go this week, customers will also be able to watch the new Mad Men episodes on an iPad and selected smartphones.

Jon Hamm will direct the third episode of the new season, while his co-star John Slatterywill also direct several instalments.

Mad Men returns to the UK on Tuesday, March 27 at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.

Published by Flo in Articles and Interviews,Gallery,Magazines Coverage . - Feb 02 , 2012

Here are some highlights from Christina Hendricks‘ interview with Cosmopolitan UK. For more, be sure to visit Cosmopolitan UK!

On being drawn to husband Geoffrey Arend:
“Geoffrey walked in and I was like, ‘Who is this guy?’ He had amazing hair and was all dishevelled – he was running late and everyone was waiting for him. He just came in with this very high energy. He was just charming, funny and very magnetic. I got his number that night under the pretence of, ‘We could just be friends.’ And of course I immediately went home and Googled him.”

On her husband finding her pin-up image as ‘funny’:
“It’s incredibly flattering and surprising, and I didn’t think for a second when I started Mad Men that people would talk about me as being sexy or a pin up. My husband has a good laugh about it, of course.”

On her definition of sexy:
“Sexiness is about confidence and individuality. I can’t keep my eyes off the women you see in cities like London, New York and Paris – the way they carry themselves and put themselves together are always so unique. Sexiness is about being an individual and having conviction about what that is.”

The issus is hitting newsstands today (February 2)!

Christina Hendricks insists she’s not like Joan
Published by Flo in Articles and Interviews,Mad Men . - Jan 28 , 2012

AWARDED the sexiest woman of the year title in 2010 by Esquire magazine and playing one of the most popular characters in US TV series Mad Men, Christina Hendricks clearly takes pride in her work. Just don’t expect her to be the same if you go round for tea.

The 36-year-old reveals that she’s not at all like feisty character Joan from the hit show about a Sixties ad agency in New York.

“All the mannerisms, the way that I become Joan – my voice changes a little bit, the walk changes a little bit and the way I use my handshake changes a little bit so it just happens when I go to work,” she says.

“I’m not like that at home. I get asked so much about the walk but it’s not me.”
