Christina Hendricks covers Cosmo UK: did you miss her busty visage?

God, I’ve missed Christina Hendricks. I was actually thinking about that as I watched the SAG awards – the cast of Mad Men has been MIA during this awards season because Mad Men didn’t air at all last year, so the show wasn’t up for any awards. Christina’s busty visage was sorely missed on the red carpet. Yes, I know, I’m usually bitching about how she’s styled, but the important thing is that I always enjoy talking about her red carpet styles, and it’s always fun to see what she’s doing with that crazy rack of hers.

But there’s good news – Christina appears on the March issue of Cosmopolitan UK, likely to promote the new season of Mad Men, which doesn’t come out for another few months. I’m not in love with the photo shoot, but at least Christina doesn’t look like a corpse, which is how most magazines shoot her. While her rack might be too much for mere mortals, I loooooove how busty she looks on the cover.

Christina on meeting her husband, Geoffrey Arend: He was a bit ‘freaked out’ by her when they first started dating. Clearly convinced she had met ‘the one’, Christina told Arend she wanted a family with him soon after meeting. ‘Geoffrey walked in and I was like, ‘Who is this guy?’ He had amazing hair and was all dishevelled – he was running late and everyone was waiting for him. He just came in with this very high energy. He was just charming, funny and very magnetic. I got his number that night under the pretence of, “We could just be friends.” And of course I immediately went home and Googled him.’

She said “love” first: After a few weeks of the pair meeting as part of a group, they finally had a date, and then it was Hendricks who said the L word first. She said: ‘I cracked it out in such a big way. I was like, “You make me want to have a family.” I freaked him out a bit…Thank God I didn’t spook him enough to make him leave.’

She didn’t expect to be a pin-up: ‘It’s incredibly flattering and surprising, and I didn’t think for a second when I started Mad Men that people would talk about me as being sexy or a pin up. My husband has a good laugh about it, of course.’

She defines “sexiness”: ‘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.’

I like that she’s always talking about her husband, because they do make for such an odd red carpet couple. He’s crazy tall and skinny, and he just looks like The Nerd King or something. And Christina is all curves and va-va-voom… and somehow, they work. Probably because The Nerd King is all “I won the lottery, yo.”

    She looks gorgeous here! I can’t help but think though that the turkey trussing is uncomfortable as all getout. I think that’s a wig as well. She should do her real hair like this – the darker color is fantastic on her.

  2. cmc says:

    God, I love this woman. I saw this article pop up and immediately gasped and said “I missed her!” Not to sound like a creeper (too late) but I fricken love looking at pictures of her. She’s so gorgeous and has such a “pefect” shape, but still seems so down-to-earth – kind of like Sofia Vergara.

  3. Sue says:

    God, I miss Mad Men so much. I love reading interviews with Christina but it also makes me sad that MM doesn’t start for another month and a half! UGH!

  4. helvetica says:

    This makes me miss Mad Men. Joan is my favorite character

  5. msshuffleupagus says:

    Ok, I love Christina, but unless her breasts are fake, they MUST have photoshopped out her bra in the first photo. Can big boobs even do that when they’re unsupported?

  6. Maya says:

    Geoffrey Arend is related to my aunt’s husband’s family – Geoffrey’s father is my uncle’s cousin or something like that. Some of my relatives were at the wedding 2 years ago; they said that Christina is super sweet and even more beautiful in person.

  7. Tiffany27 says:

    I know it’s perverted, but I desperately want to know what size bra she wears.

  8. Jess says:

    It looks like an ass on her chest…it’s sad. There is no reason to push those suckers up, just support them naturally and stop looking like an ass-chested freak!

    • Tiegan says:

      I agree, she’s got a lovely (if a little too soft) voluptuous figure, but why does she keep jacking her cleavage up to her chin? It just looks uncomfortable to me.

      • Scarlet Vixen says:

        Because the further away from your waist your boobs are the smaller your waist looks. Us big-chested girls know you gotta jack the girls up as high as you can to show that you actually have a shape and not look bulky–especially if you’re shorter (Hendricks is about 5’7″).

        PS I love that she’s making a different face in each shot! I’m so sick of these young starlets that have one ‘sexy face’ and that’s it (*cough*KristenStewart*cough*BlakeLively).

    • Abigail says:

      I agree with you… it’s like a fat ass on her chest. I don’t see that sexy, and it’s worse when she tries to fit into a few size smaller dress

  9. Shoes says:

    Her makeup finally looks good, but I think the dress and hairstyling on that cover are awful. The dress especially. It gives her square boobs. And i think it’d still be ugly on a stick figure.

  10. Azurea says:

    What I want to know is how is her waist so tiny when the rest of her is so zaftig? I’m pretty thin with pretty big boobs…but my waist is the bane of my existence…one or two sizes bigger than the rest of me…ARGH!

    • Jules says:

      I have the same problem…my body resembles hers, but my waist is much bigger!!

      • Alarmjaguar says:

        My waist is much smaller than my hips — I’m not really complaining, mind you, but recent styles (in pants anyway) don’t emphasize waists, so unless I’m wearing a dress, I don’t get to show it off.

  11. dahlia says:

    are they real ? AND HOW COME THEY RE NOT HANGING TO HER KNEES YET ? I’m so jealous *cries*

  12. Asli says:

    OMG! I luuuuurve Nerd Kings! They’re incredibly hot to me. Don’t know why.

  13. Audrey says:

    @ Tiffany – my breasts are similar to hers and I am a G cup.

  15. Jules says:

    I love the color of her hair (or wig).
    I have dyed red hair, but it never stays that vibrant.

  16. J O'C says:

    I’m as..erm…curvy as she is but I also have kind of a fat face. How is it that she doesn’t carry any of her weight in her face?

    Not fair.

  17. Gagey says:

    How is her waist so slim? Photoshop

    Hair so vibrant? Photoshop

    She’s gorgeous – but remember – no one looks like that in real life.

  18. serena says:

    Well, that ‘busty’ look you all love is the work of some plastic surgeon. And she really can lie all she wants and say ‘I didn’t expect to be a pin up’.. but, yeah, then why did you chose to have that boob size? LOL

  19. Happy21 says:

    I’m pretty sure this is photoshopping at its best, especially around them middle. Don’t get me wrong she is gorgeous and has a gorgeous figure, er, um, rack.

    I’ve noticed though in the 3 seasons of MM I’ve seen that she looks a little thicker in the waist than she does here and most photos of her I’ve seen. I’ve also noticed that while she has pretty wide hips she appears to have a fairly flat ass.

    Still, I love how she works her fuller figure to her advantage. Plastic surgery or not, she’s hot!

  20. LeeLoo says:

    I’m straight as can be but I would totally become a lesbian for Christina Hendricks.

  21. Ashley says:

    Oh! I love her and I missed her! And I LOVE that I missed her.

  22. Bonfire Beach says:

    She has some damn good side support. I totally need that for my DDDs.

  23. B says:

    I for one haven’t missed having Mad Men scoop up all of the awards this season. It’s nice to see some other shows get a little recognition.

  24. thethinker says:

    @Kaiser Mad Men’s back next month, but it does feel like it own’t be back for another few months. Ugh. Can it be March already?

  25. marie says:

    She says her boobs are real but there are pictures of her years ago and she was virtually flat and MUCH slimmer. I think the huge gynormous boobs are gross! She looks bloated and fat….I don’t think ultra skinny woman are attractive but I bet she looks gross in a swim suit…all cellulite and jiggly. Never seen pics of her in a swimsuit or without the heavy makeup and WIG! Not a natural woman at all.

    • rachael says:

      There are some recent photos of her in a black 1 piece…she looked awful..her boobs waist and thighs look nothing like the way she appears in pictures.

  26. Erin says:

    god i LOVE her hair

  27. Penguin says:


  28. Dave says:

    She is fat and nasty no doubt other fat women will be singing her praises and caling her a “real woman”

  29. kibbles says:

    I love this gorgeous woman! She is absolutely stunning and one of the few celebrities today that is just jaw dropping beautiful in every way. I don’t envy the skinny women in Hollywood but I really envy Christina’s curves. She’s really working it in that dress. This photoshoot is one of her better ones.

  30. mememe says:

    Her character is fantastic! She’s growing on me.

  31. bored says:

    She’s such an incredibly sexy woman. Not just her body, but that face and the red hair.

  32. Ginger says:

    Thanks for the post! I just love Christina Hendricks! She is one of my style icons of late. She is so incredibly gorgeous and sexy IMO. I just love how she doesn’t look like the “cookie cutter” actress/model. I have been a redhead for more than 20 years and I wish I could see more of that in Hollywood, etc. Although I think I am seeing more of it lately…I hope it’s a trend 🙂

    One Hot Red Headed Mama!!! She looks beautiful.
