Christina Hendricks shares in an interview with Health magazine (out this month) how she feels about her role as unofficial spokesmodel for voluptuous beauty.
Here are the highlights:
On having a healthy body image: “I guess my mom raised me right. She was very celebratory of her body. I never heard her once say, ‘I feel fat.’ Back when I was modeling, the first time I went to Italy I was having cappuccinos every day, and I gained 15 pounds. And I felt gorgeous! I would take my clothes off in front of the mirror and be like, ‘Oh, I look like a woman.’ And I felt beautiful, and I never tried to lose it, ’cause I loved it.”
On staying motivated to be healthy: “I was a dancer until I was 19. I never had to worry about working out or what I ate. So I’ve really had to train myself to get down to the gym. But what surprised me was that my husband said [the other day], ‘I’m going down to work out,’ and I was like, ‘Oh, I wish I was going.’ And I was like, ‘Ooh! I can’t believe I just said that!’ I’d had a busy week working 16-hour days, and I didn’t get to work out, and I missed it. My friends will read this and be like, ‘No you didn’t.’ But it’s true!”
On Christina‘s fitness regimen and her food vices:
On her workout routine: “I get kind of bored on the treadmill, but I do it. And I do a little bit of weight training. I’m really into the BOSU ball. You have to balance on it, and I do weights and squats on it. I’m pretty good at it, I feel sort of like a Karate Kid . . . I read magazines, and I’ll try [the exercises]. It’s something different, and, often, you don’t need equipment. If I get any private time in my trailer, all of a sudden I’m doing sit-ups and push-ups.”
On her food vices: “I like salty, creamy foods. I could sit down with a bag of chips and French onion dip and go to town! That would be on my last-supper list. But I discovered that dry French onion soup mix in nonfat yogurt tastes just as good. It really does!”
On the constant attention: “I made the grave mistake after one awards show of reading comments online about what I wore, and I was like,’Oh my God, people are so mean!’ I still remember all those negative comments, despite all the wonderful positivity. That’s why we’re all in therapy! [We remember] the 10 bad things that happen to us instead of the 100 nice ones.”

Christina Hendricks has been discovered as an online Etsy model for her friend Tamara Mello. Etsy is a site that enables “people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers.”
Actress Tamara Mello, most famous for her role of Lily Esposito on “Popular” and also a bridesmaid in Hendricks’ 2009 wedding to Geoffrey Arend, sells housewares, jewelry and clothing on the site under the name Blackbird House Design, reports The Wrap.
The scarf is described thusly: “In shades of Kelly Green, Burnt Orange and Gold. I was inspired by the Japanese dying technique Shibori when I created this piece. The scarf was hand knit using different fibers to create its unique texture before being wet felted and molded. The scarf is 60″ long and 9″ at its widest point. This piece is a one of a kind original and will not be duplicated.”
