Christina Hendricks was recently called full-figured during an interview, and she ended up walking away from the interviewer and later explaining herself by saying she was very offended by the question.
The reporter, who was a fashion editor for the Sydney Sun Herald, asked Hendricks, “You have been an inspiration as a full-figured woman. What is the most inspiring story that you can remember where you’ve inspired someone?” Hendricks replied, “Um, I don’t know… I’m sorry.”
Hendricks later reportedly clarified the non-response off camera, saying (according to E News), “I think calling me full-figured is just rude.”
Hendricks has also recently told Glamour Magazine about the experience of being on red carpets, saying, “'You get everyone out there judging your dress and your hair and your lipstick, and you just think, "Let me get dressed up and go to a nice party. Why do you have to be so judgemental? But usually, once you're past the red carpet and you get inside, you have a nice time.”
Hendricks was also called ‘large’ last year by a tabloid, and was met with angry statements from online commentators that women like Kim Kardashian and Hendricks are considered ‘large’, even though they just have hour glass figures.
Hendricks can currently be seen on the hit TV show 'Mad Men'.
