Christina Hendricks didn’t think that she’d become a sex symbol when she started “Mad Men” — at least, that’s what she says in a new interview with Cosmopolitan UK for its March 2012 issue. The curvaceous redhead admits that the attention is “incredibly flattering and surprising,” and that she “didn’t think for a second” that viewers would talk about her sex appeal after watching the show.
Hendricks also chatted about her husband Geoffrey Arend, to whom she was immediately attracted. “He was just charming, funny and very magnetic,” she mused about the day they met. “I got his number that night under the pretense of, ‘We could just be friends.’ And of course I immediately went home and Googled him.”
When asked to define “sexy,” Christina Hendricks explained, “Sexiness is about confidence and individuality. I can’t keep my eyes off the women you see in cities like London, New York and Paris — the way they carry themselves and put themselves together are always so unique. Sexiness is about being an individual and having conviction about what that is.”
