Christina Hendricks and Geoffrey Arend practice ‘two-week rule’ in their marriage

Geoffrey Arend and Christina Hendricks know what it takes to keep a marriage of two actors going, at least for them.

“We’ve been very lucky so far,” ABC “Body of Proof” co-star Arend tells Zap2it about his union with AMC “Mad Men” regular Hendricks. “We’ve been working in the same city [Los Angeles], where a lot of times, you get split. When we got married, the day after, we both left to go to different places for movie jobs. I went to Toronto and she went to Atlanta.

“We didn’t see each other for two-and-a-half weeks. That kind of thing happens sometimes, but we have a two-week rule. Two weeks can’t go by without us seeing each other, and that’s helpful for the mind and heart. Also, we just got a new puppy, so that’s been keeping us home quite a bit. It’s like having a baby.”

The Season 3 episodes of “Body of Proof” — which began airing Tuesday (Feb. 19) with Arend back as pathologist Ethan — have been completed, while Hendricks is continuing filming as 1960s ad-agency partner Joan in the seventh season of “Mad Men” that debuts Sunday, April 7.

“The first season of each of our shows, we would at times pick up the other’s scripts and take a glance,” Arend reports, “but now, we really don’t. Honestly, after the first couple, I stopped reading the scripts for ‘Mad Men.’ It’s just such a joy to watch when it’s fully realized on the screen, I don’t want to spoil anything for myself.”

Hendricks guest-starred in an early episode of “Body of Proof,” and though he says he’d love to have her on the show again, Arend isn’t sure that’s in the cards.

“She’s got so much stuff going on right now, I honestly don’t think we could get her,” he muses. “She’s doing a movie with Ryan Gosling that he’s also directing (‘How to Catch a Monster’), then she has another one that sounds like a dream job. And, of course, she’s finishing out ‘Mad Men’ for the new season, so there really isn’t any time. Maybe if we get a Season 4 pick-up, she’ll come back.”


People’s One Last Thing with Christina Hendricks

Last song I sang
I was singing “At Last” by Etta James this morning. My husband [Geoffrey Arend, 35] and I sing a lot at home. We just make up songs. It’s sort of like living in a musical.

Last splurge
I treated myself to an Alexander McQueen cape. I went into the shop intending to court a pair of pants, [but] I walked out with something way more extravagant. I wear it pretty much every day.

Last fan encounter
I was at Disneyland last week. They take those photos of you screaming on a roller coaster, then post them at the end. Someone went up and took a picture of mine looking absolutely ridiculous with my hair in the air. I was like, “Oh, no! That’s so awkward!”

Last guilty pleasure
I’ve never been into fried chicken before, but Geoffrey is now brining the chicken, smoking it, then frying it all at home. It’s like a whole different dish. I took two big ol’ wonderful pieces.

Last injury sustained
I was walking down the stairs in footie pajamas and slipped. I bounced down and had bruises from my bum down to my ankle. It was really painful and really unattractive.
