Christina Hendricks is known to television fans as Joan Harris on the hit television show "Mad Men", a beautiful businesswoman who possesses the voluptuous, curvaceous figure of the American bombshell. On the show she is a woman who can be tough, fierce and has men literally on their knees because they need her. Her character has no qualms about using her feminine charms to help her get what she wants yet and can be very confrontational and scary when angered.
She admitted in a recent interview that she was concerned at the beginning of the show that her portrayal of the character might be too intimidating for the time but the feedback from viewers to the show suggested that fans loved her character's personality and it enabled her to truly become the character. However, the character is very different than her in real life as she is not so confrontational.
The beautiful actress has been in the news with her recent appearance at an West LA screening of the show in which she looked stunning while wearing a purple seventies jumpsuit which covered her arms and legs yet still showed off her fabulous figure in a very fashionable manner.
She admitted to getting ready for the end of "Mad Men" and to that end she has been acting in various projects. She was at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival for the screening of "Lost River", a "reality takes on a psychedelic twist" film directed by Ryan Gosling in which she stars as a single mother of two children trying to prevent the foreclosure of her house and survive financially, a role for which she received much critical acclaim for her performance.
Christina Hendricks may not feel that she is as tough as her Joan Harris character in "Mad Men" but she is an actress whose dramatic range and talent makes it possible for her to play any type of role and do so convincingly.
