Christina Hendricks says, "Everyone Just Wanted to Ask Me About My Huge Boobs Bra Size"

According to Mad Men veteran Christina Hendricks, "there are only two sentences to say about a bra," she said to The Guardian.

Christina Hendricks is speaking up about having to put up with inquiries about her underwear on a regular basis while she was on Mad Men.


The actress, who is nominated for six Emmys overall for her performance as Joan Holloway on the AMC period drama, talked about how, despite her "hard work" on the show, she was often asked about her bra in an interview with The Guardian that was conducted recently.

"There certainly was a time when we were very critically acclaimed, and getting a lot of attention for our very good work and our very hard work, and everyone just wanted to ask me about my bra again," Hendricks, 46, recalled.

"There are only two sentences to say about a bra," she said.

Speaking broadly, the ex-model asked, "Boy, do you think anyone in the entertainment industry comes out unscathed and not objectified?" in reference to sexism and sexual harassment in Hollywood.

Hendricks said, "I don't know a single artist, model, or actor who has avoided it. "There have been times when individuals have attempted to take advantage of me, use my body in ways that I wasn't comfortable with, convince or threaten me, or disgrace me professionally". These instances haven't happened on Mad Men.

The actress described her own experience by saying that she "knew to immediately get on the phone and go, 'Uh oh, trouble,'" because of her past in modeling.

That's the part where Hendricks told The Guardian that it's very much a job. "We need to talk to the producers and handle this professionally." 

The Good Girls actress responded to remarks made about her physique in 2011 by stating that her breasts were genuine and that she was surprised the topic had even been raised.

"People always asking if my breasts are real or fake is so weird," she said at the time to the Daily Mail's You magazine. "They're so obviously real that anyone who's ever seen or touched a breast would know."

Hendricks claimed to be an example of the reverse after learning that more British women were having breast augmentations at the time in order to seem more luscious.

"Even if it has occasionally been inconvenient, I'm learning to embrace what I was born with, if there's anything I can teach you," the woman said. "Over the years, having bigger breasts has made shopping more difficult for me, but I've come to embrace it."
