Christina Hendricks covers up her rack: better or worse?


I hate the way Christina Hendricks looks in these photos. I hate it so much that at the end of the post, I’m going to include some of the days-old tit-buffet photos of Christina in the rose Vivienne Westwood, just because that’s the way I like my boob-tastic gingers: with their racks out and heaved to high heaven. These photos – of Christina in black and white – are from Tuesday, a celebration for Self Magazine. Hendricks was one of several women honored by the magazine for their work with non-profits and charities. Christina’s work is with the Make A Wish Foundation, which she supports through her work with Latisse Wishes Challenge. At the event, Christina told reporters:

“I’m taking a Make A Wish Foundation child to the Emmys on Sunday. That’s his wish. So I’m excited to grant that. He’s 19, he’s from Texas. He’s gonna have a good date. I get to meet him Saturday, we’re gonna go half lunch with his family and meet him, and brooks brothers is going to give him a tuxedo and we’re going to get him really set up, its gonna be fun.”

Um… he’s 19 and his “wish” is to go to the Emmys with Christina? One of two things: he’s a sick-but-horny 19-year-old who loves boobs and just wants to spend an evening looking at the best pair in America; OR, he’s a sick-but-fabulous young man and he wants to give Christina some one-on-one criticism of her style. That conversation begins, in my mind, with, “BITCH, I told you to wear a jewel tone. I don’t even want to be seen with your ass now.” But seriously, how cute is it that she’s bringing a Make A Wish kid to the Emmys? That’s really nice.

Christina also gave some longer interviews to various oulets, including New York Magazine (you can read the full NY Mag piece here), and here are some highlights:

On her supporting part in Drive: “To be honest, the real reason I did Drive was because of Nicolas Winding Refn, the director. I had seen Bronson and I was floored by it, and I said, “I want to work with this guy. I don’t care what it is.” And this is a smaller role, but I just wanted to be part of what he was doing, and it’s an instrumental role, and I think it’s really different than anything else I’ve ever done, and an opportunity to work with Ryan [Gosling] … there were so many reasons to do it. And I love that I actually have these coming out on the same night, on the opposite end of the spectrum of movies, both enjoyable in completely different ways.”

On Nicolas Refn wanting her for Wonder Woman: “Sure! I grew up on the TV show, and I had Wonder Woman Underoos, and my brother had a Wonder Woman doll — sorry, Aaron, you’re exposed. [Giggles.] And Nicolas said, when we were on set, “I want you to be Wonder Woman.” And I think he is such an extraordinary and exceptional director, that if he asked me to do it, I would do it in a heartbeat.”

Joss Whedon wants her for Wonder Woman too: “I’d like to think that Joss would have cast me! I also loved working with Joss [on Firefly]. I’m excited to see what he does with The Avengers. Hopefully the stars would align [for Wonder Woman]. It would be really fun. It would be cool, wouldn’t it? I’d get to kick ass.

Christina on her Emmy chances: “I’m not preparing a speech. There are some pretty extraordinary actresses in that category. I hate to say it, but I think it might be a long shot. But I’m super excited — especially since the show is nominated, too.”

On her husband: “My husband does so much to help me, and I do as much to help him as possible. If one day he’s off from work, he’ll help me to do something – and vice versa. We’ve been doing a lot of traveling and different jobs and going back and forth. I don’t freak myself out if something doesn’t happen.”

She’s not ready to have a baby: “At least not any time soon. I feel busy enough right now.”

More on her husband: Geoffrey Arend, 33, is “an amazing cook,” Hendricks said, so she’s trying to stop feeling guilty when he takes care of the groceries. “You don’t have to feel guilty about it. And sometimes, [he] really enjoys it! I think he’s surpassed me now in his culinary talents.”

[From People and New York Magazine]

I’m not sure if I want to see Christina do Wonder Woman. I’ve gone back and forth on it, considering people have been talking about it for a while. At first I thought it was a great idea, but…? I’d kind of like to see a brunette do Wonder Woman. Oh, and there are even more quotes from even more interviews:

By the way, don’t you love how it seems like Geoffrey Arend is the Nerd King of All because he landed Christina? He’s doing everything to make her happy – cooking, running errands, rearranging schedules. He adores her. Just as it should be.


Oh, and I still f–ing love Christina in this dress:

    She looks like a Harlequin Temp.

  2. gee says:

    I don’t like this look at all. It makes her look bigger than she is!

  3. Cherry says:

    FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WOMAN, FIRE YOU STYLIST. Really, it is quite an accomplishment to make such a gorgeous girl look like such a complete mess every time she walks out the door. Ok, so she has her rack covered. But what’s with the turtleneck? Seriously, Christina, it’s not one or the other. You can have a BIT of cleavage and still look sexy. And for goodness’ sake, honey, who does your make-up? You look like the joker in Batman. This is bad. This is really bad.

  4. Liz says:

    I think she’s trying to channel the “Mad Men” vibe.

    Frankly, I think she got massive implants and isn’t entirely sure how to dress them yet. (And yes, they’re implants. Look at the shelf on those things in the pink.) I wish she’d be more consistent – she’s so beautiful.

  5. Sara says:

    IMO unless it’s freezing outside a turtleneck is useless and boring. Her boobs still look huge cause the shirt is tight. How can celebrities get is so wrong with all their money and connections? I just don’t understand.

  6. Jenny says:

    She is not a small woman, she has curves. What she needs is a style and clothing that allows her to be comfortable with her body type but not look so cheap. She cannot purchase clothing off the rack (no pun intended), she needs to have it made to fit her. She has money, she should use it.

  7. gee says:

    @Jenny – she can find clothes off the rack. Maybe not at those stores that only go up to size 6, but there are tons of options for a curvy girl. I mean, she’s probably just a size 12 with big tatas.

  8. vic says:

    This woman just can’t get it right. Even if these outfits are a stylist’s idea she can just say no. Unless she’s blind. Doesn’t she have any friends?

  9. Sue says:

    That top picture is just scary……

  10. Trillian says:

    In every posting about her the comments are like: Oh, she is so gorgeous but she looks so bad in this outfit.
    Well, as I see it, she is just weird looking. Corpsey-colored skin, cowish face, ridiculous tits and I’m not even mentioning her feet. Nope, don’t like her at all.

  11. Franny says:

    I think this could have been a cute look had the skirt not been white, and had the shirt had a deep V-neck in a different color. Ok, so a completely different outfit.

    Also, I’m pretty sure she’s NOT wearing flats in the pink dress, but the picture is just taken from a wierd angle.

    I still love her. and her hair…which is why I’m going ginger in a few weeks (she’s a blondie too so it makes it okay :) )

  12. Anne de Vries says:

    She’s pale, but the skintone in these photos is just due to weird lighting.

    She sounds like she’s super sweet and a lot of fun – actually that just confirms what I know from Firefly fandom. It’s good to see she hasn’t changed.

  13. kibbles says:

    I heard on an entertainment show that she is a size 14. That is the normal size for American women. The main difference is that Christina has bigger breasts. It’s not like she’s a size 18 or 20. Women who are a size 16 or under can find clothes at most department stores and would fit a size Large or Extra Large. She has the money and can get designer clothes tailored to her shape. I think she looks great in the rose Vivienne Westwood, but it would be better if her breasts weren’t so mushed together. It’s nice to have cleavage but I don’t get why she needs to have her breasts pushed up so high in every low cut dress she wears.

  14. Evie (not Eve) says:

    She looks like a hot mess in 90% of her non-Mad Men appearances. We all know about the horrible clothes, but her makeup routinely looks terrible. It’s so harsh and unflattering. Sometimes I wonder if she’s some kind of raging beyotch, if people just let her go out on the red carpet looking like that.

    She should just hire the Mad Men people to fix her up for these things. They clearly know how to dress her figure and make her look gorgeous. Or maybe she should just always dress in 60s drag.

  15. spinner says:

    The first outfit makes me sad in pants.

  16. Mitsey Martin says:

    I like her, I thought she was brilliant in Mad Men but why oh why oh why does everyone think her hooters are real, they 100% look like bolt ons to me, look at the shape of them at the top squeezed in to that VW dress!

  17. tracking says:

    I’m with Cherry on this one. The stylist needs to go.

  18. Original Tiffany says:

    How could she look so amazing on Mad Men (which I am in the middle of watching 4 seasons of on netflix), and so bad on her own?
    Everything about the look is bad, makeup, clothes, hair.
    If she is still in Toronto or anywhere near here, it went from being a beach type weather to freezing today-supposed to be 40 tonight and I was on the Beach a few days ago and strolling at night with a tank. Crazy ass weather up here!

  19. MJ says:

    Take it from me, those bad boys are real. Stuff my 32Gs into an expensive push-up bra and they sit that high. She’s probably wearing a corset under the pink dress, which squeezes all of the boob meat up as you tighten it.

  20. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Now I know who I’m dressin up as for Halloween, thanks Christina!

  21. Anon says:

    I won’t believe they are real until someone does the flashlight test on her rack and posts it here for all to see. That needs to be someone’s mission!

  22. Lisa says:

    She looks really really pale in the first pic. I thought maybe she was sick until I saw the second pic, where she at least looks like she’s still among the living.

  23. Miss Thang says:

    Good Lord. Can’t this woman find a happy medium? A normal v-neck that doesn’t show half her breasts? Please?

  24. Christina Hendricks covers up her rack?? Nooooo…say it ain’t so.

  25. LeeLoo says:

    The black shirt and white outfit is okay but I’ve said it before: whether the girls are real or fake (I think they’re real) they are a wonderful asset and she needs to use them.

  26. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I don’t know why the entire planet insists that it’s a giant conspiracy governing her always-horrible makeup and wardrobe as opposed to her choosing these things? Maybe she’s just got terrible taste (including that over-rouged masthead disaster dress). She isn’t looking for an emerald-encrusted jumpsuit amongst the Amish, and women who aren’t being force-fed their own hype (bathing suit diagrams to be sent to NASA, or whatever) find the stuff she overlooks fine. I think, just because you aren’t wearing things it doesn’t mean that they don’t exist or are especially hidden. Don’t necessarly decide you’re and out-for-the-count victim because of her criminally and unwaveringly terrible taste in clothes (and ‘breast’ isn’t a fabric or shoe line, Kaiser, I 100% don’t get it with you and hers.) There are no victims here, just people with egregiously terrible taste and likely vision issues. This isn’t cancer. Where do you all shop to find that nothing ever, ever fits? Change location.

  27. Lauren says:

    Let her boobs be free..I am a 2 on the bottom and a 10 on top…naturally. My daughter gets asked if I had a boob job! And yes, my back is killing me! My husband loves them.

  28. Ramona Q says:

    This gal has no “in between” look. It’s either high-class harlot or big-old-mess librarian.

  29. B says:

    I like this look better. For once her boobs don’t look like they’re gasping for breath.

    Her make-up, however, is atrocious. She looks like a pasty, dying clown. I think that she has a weird face to begin with, and this make-up is doing nothing good for her. I don’t think she understands the coloring that redheads need. Maybe it’s because she isn’t a real one..

  30. Ally says:

    We are Goldilocks-ing Christina’s rack… too much, not enough…

    The context is important here, though. She’s on a platonic date with a sick kid. Heaving bosoms would have been inappropriate. The turtleneck is a bit much, though.

    Why doesn’t she let the Mad Men costume designer advise her red carpet choices, though. That woman is perfectly on-point with the style choices.

  31. anonymoose says:

    it’s The Joker in drag.

    horrid, btw.

  32. machiavelli says:

    Ramona Q: ditto.
    Can’t they find a middle ground? Surely she is not the first woman with big breasts, in Hollywood?

  33. taxi says:

    The white skirt is not flattering. The pockets at the hip don’t help either. Yes, the woman has lovely curves but that outfit makes her lower half look bigger than it probably is.

  34. shaishai says:

    She is a gorgeous woman and needs to find someone who can dress her. Whoever it is who dresses Kelly Brook; she’s got a HUGE rack but they never look like they’re about to suffocate her like Christina’s do. She looks hot AND sexy and comfortable and Christina can too.

  35. dr.bombay says:

    I love Christina to death. But, her personal style either looks dowdy, like an absolute joke or trailer trash–no classic style in between. I agree with Cherry…fire your stylist, Christina! You’ve got great goods that are being trampled upon.

  36. smh says:

    Now cover up that face too & you’re all set.

  37. Emily says:

    That pink dress looks like it’s held up with magic. Not magic tape, magic. As for Wonder Woman, I heard a rumour ages ago that Charisma Carpenter was going to play her, and now I don’t want anyone else for the role. She’s a brunette, has an amazing body, kicked some butt in Angel and Joss loves her.
