Allergan, the maker of LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03%, announced today the launch of the 2011 LATISSE® Wishes Challenge. Inspired by the tradition of blowing on an eyelash to make wishes come true, the campaign is gaining momentum for the second year by rallying women in support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation®, a nonprofit organization dedicated to granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. LATISSE® user and Emmy-nominated actress Christina Hendricks is encouraging women to join her to help raise $500,000 so a wish can be granted in every Make-A-Wish® chapter across the country. LATISSE® is the first and only prescription treatment approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to grow lashes longer, fuller and darker for those with inadequate or not enough lashes (eyelash hypotrichosis).
Consumers can participate in the LATISSE® Wishes Challenge by donating a minimum of $20 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation through the campaign’s website, www.LatisseWishesChallenge.com. LATISSE® will double all donations up to $250,000 until November 30, 2011.

Christina Hendricks made a splash in the first episode of “Mad Men,” running the secretarial pool with a firm hand and a tight dress. Since then her character has been in and out of the ad world and in and out of bed with Roger Sterling (John Slattery), while Hendricks herself has won two SAG Awards as part of the show’s ensemble cast, and watched the show take home the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series three years running. She also landed Esquire’s 2010 Sexiest Woman in the World designation in a vote of the magazines female readers
It’s been quite a while since you finished shooting your last season …
Seven, eight months? I think we wrapped in September or October.
You’ve been busy since then, haven’t you?
I did a movie called “Detachment,” and then I did “Drive,” and then I did a movie with Sarah Jessica Parker called “I Don’t Know How She Does It.” And I did Stephen Sondheim‘s “Company” at Lincoln Center, which was fun. So yeah, I’ve been keeping real busy.
When do you start back on “Mad Men?”
It should be less than a month, I would think. Our writers are back, so that’s a good sign. But I saw Matt Weiner last night, and there’s still no definite day.
A few months ago, there was talk that Weiner might not return, and that he was being pressured to cut costs by trimming the cast substantially. Were you worried that he wouldn’t be back?
This show couldn’t be made without Matt Weiner. He is the show. So I knew that something would be figured out. I knew it would be.
Do you have any idea what’s in store for Joan next season?
I have one little hint of what might happen, and I can’t share it. It might go away. Sometimes he’ll give me a hint and that will end up changing. And I never say what those things are, because they might show up in a different season. Continue reading
