Christina Hendricks busts out again, her husband defends her boobs


This is Mad Men’s resident ginger beauty Christina Hendricks at the Director’s Guild Awards on Saturday. Photos of Christina – and really, it was just a series of photos – put on Huffington Post seriously garnered more than 800 comments. Gee, I wonder why? Why is it that we are all transfixed by Christina and her magical rack of beauty? Besides her boobs (gorgeous), the photos of Christina might have garnered so much attention because her dress was lovely, and much prettier than the overly-criticized dress from the Golden Globes (photo below).

Golden Globe Awards 2010 - PRESS ROOM

This was the dress that inspired some nasty NYT blogger to “quote” a stylist who snotted “You don’t put a big dress on a big girl.” Of course, that was only one insane and nasty thing the NYT bloggers were up to that night, but apparently that one comment really bothered Christina’s husband Geoffrey Arend. Much like David Arquette’s defense of wife Courteney Cox, Arend took it upon himself to defend his new wife.

Following the heated debate over Christina Hendricks’ choice of a champagne ruffled gown by Project Runway alum Christian Siriano at the Golden Globes, the Mad Men star’s husband, Geoffrey Arend, is fighting back.

At a SAG awards after party, Arend stopped to defend his wife to PEOPLE. “I was just upset about the whole Golden Globes dress thing. I thought she looked so gorgeous. And that New York Times blogger saying that… It’s so ridiculous,” he said, referring to the paper’s fashion critic, Cathy Horyn offering the critique “You don’t put a big girl in a big dress. That’s rule number one”.

Arend contines, “What was nice was seeing the entire internet come after that blogger. That was really cool. It was the first time I saw just a solid block of ‘You’re crazy! What’s wrong with you? You should be ashamed of yourself!’ [in the comments.] And honestly, the Grey Lady should be ashamed of themselves to print a picture like that, that they widened!”

In an update to her column, Horyn acknowledged that the original photo used in her post was accidentally distorted: “The photo was slightly distorted inadvertently due to an error during routine processing. The photograph has been replaced,” she wrote.

For her part, Hendricks is standing by her Siriano gown: “I loved it! I thought I looked gorgeous!” she told PEOPLE.

We agree—as does her proud husband, who gushes, “Honestly, she’s the greatest woman I know. She’s the most beautiful woman I know. She’s the most talented woman I know. It’s like there’s not enough adjectives that could express or superlatives that could express how wonderful she is.”

Well, that’s nice of him to defend the boobs his wife. And seriously, why wouldn’t he? You know he married up. And he knows it too. He seems like the kind of guy who treats his wife like gold, so good for her. And good for her boobs. I’m so glad a girl who looks like Christina gets work. And that no one is telling her to lose weight or get a breast reduction or something. She’s like a ginger throw-back to Jayne Mansfield.

Here’s a cute one of Christina with her dorky/sexy librarian glasses. I need those frames. I love them:

    why would anyone suggest she get a breast reduction? she got them enlarged to balance her natural pear shape and they are the no. 1 trait that has gotten her noticed.

  2. Sumodo says:

    Mad Men viewers love her, and she’s not just “talented” in the chestal area. I like her and am glad she has a supportive bra–I mean–husband. Those boob are fake, according to

  3. mojoman says:


  4. lucy2 says:

    I think she looks great, I don’t know why the fashion critics are picking on her, other than they want every woman to look like a 12 year old boy, no curves.
    And what’s all this “big girl” stuff? She’s not big, she’s curvy. Suddenly everyone who’s not a skeleton is considered big?

  5. LolaBella says:

    They’re NOT real???!!

    I know a lot of straight and gay men who will be VERY disappointed to hear this! ;-)

    Seriously, they looked natural to me. I think in this dress, the neckline is pushing them up and together which perhaps makes them look ‘enhanced’?

  6. MsTriste says:

    If she didn’t have those luscious breasts, people would only notice that she’s not your average Hollywood, stick-thin woman, and she wouldn’t get any work. In other words, people are blinded by the boobs and don’t notice that she’s at least a size 12.

  7. Eileen Yover says:

    I think she is stunning-big boobs or not.

  8. Kaiser says:

    I think they’re real too. There’s some sag, and they look very soft.

  9. Carrie says:

    I think they’re real- I had (reduced) extra large boobs like hers and when I would wear a push up bra and a tighter dress/top, my cleavage looked like hers.

    The Awful Plastic Surgery site’s “proof” is pretty limited- they are basing it on the look of her boobs in a push up bra, which changes the look of your chest completely.

  10. gloaming says:

    She looks awesome in this dress.
    And she carries herself well too. The look of pride on her husbands face says it all.

    I’d kill for a body like that-with smaller boobs tho, hers look a bit cumbersome.

  11. snapdragon says:

    she looks gorgeous and curvy. what’s the problem?

  12. embertine says:

    If they’re not real, they were when she did Firefly because there is one scene where she’s not wearing a bra and they are obviously naturally shaped.

  13. lucy2 says:

    I say real. Awful PS may be right sometimes, but most of the time it seems like they’re reaching. I was just on there the other night and they claimed an actress had a chin implant, and the before and after pics were identical.

  14. SageAdvice says:

    They look real to me. I have boobs pretty much exactly like her’s and her body type-I’m about a size 6/8. If I squeeze my boobs into certain dresses/bras, they can look very fake. I’ve had women in bathrooms ask if they were real and if they could touch them on several occasions.

    I think her body is beautiful and I think she’s a lovely woman and a great actress.

    LolaBella: Don’t believe one person’s opinion. Get a bunch of opinions, synthesize them and then form your own based on research and personal experience. A lot of people say a lot of things that aren’t true as though they were true.

  15. wow says:

    I like this lady. I also like this dress, but for some reason I think I’ve seen some other celebrity in it at another awards show.

    Anyway CH rocks!

  16. snapdragon says:

    yeah, i say they are real as well. if not, they are the best implants in the world.

  17. LolaBella says:

    @SageAdvice: Trust me, I never believe just one person’s opinion and do base my choices/beliefs etc. on personal experience. That website alone wasn’t going to convince me when there’s older pics/vid which corroborates the naturalness of CH’s breasts. It’s All Good.

    I was just expressing the total disbelief that this claim that they weren’t real was met by some of my male friends. LOL.

    All said, she’s a beautiful woman and the red dress she wore to last weekend’s SAG awards was the best I have ever seen her look.

  18. RobN says:

    You can critiize the guy who said don’t put a big girl in a big dress, but she looked awful at the Golden Globes, then wore a simple dress to the DGA’s and looked fabulous.

  19. longtallsally says:

    I don’t remember her being as chesty in Firefly as she is now, is a good example of how she looked back then… when I first saw her on Mad Men, I thought either she gained weight (she has more curves now) or she got implants… maybe she got implants in her already big boobs, as her right breast seems to slightly creep up and look lop-sided in dresses like Jessica Simpson’s old implants did, but they look better than bolt-on DD’s on a skinny girl.

  20. celeducat'em says:

    showing up as twice their size compared to her imdb pics from 2005..late growth spurt?

  21. shibajonz says:

    I think she has probably gained a little weight since Firefly. Matthew Weiner is very specific w/ the Mad Men women about not being too thin, not working out, because that wouldn’t be true to the figures of that era. I think she’s a 6/8 also.

  22. apsutter says:

    OMG…..her husband is the “candy bars!!!” kid from super troopers who eats the whole bag of mushrooms. He was also just in 500 Days of Summer. Talk about marrying up!! I love christina….I love Mad Men and live for when Joan is on the screen. They make her look so fantastic and gorgeous. I think she’s prettier on the show tho….she looks good when they put her hair up. I bet he treats her like a queen!

  23. SageAdvice says:

    Glanced at the IMdb pics that celeducat’em pointed out and I have to clarify something for the small-breasted among us.

    I’ve got about 10 bras in either 34DDD or 34FF and in each bra my boobs look entirely different because each bra serves a different purpose. Sometimes they look smaller because the cups are softer and allow them to hang more, those are t-shirt bras. Sometimes they look bigger because they are push-up or shaping bras that squeeze my chimmies together and give the illusion of bigger, rounder breasts; generally use these when going out on dates or out with friends. I have minimizing bras that make them look almost a C-cup, generally used for working out or for work.

    Also, bigger boobs look different in different styles of clothing. The 2005 photos have her in a dress where her boobs are in a bra that separated and loosely held them rather than pushed and squeezed them up to her neck. In a dress with a low, wide v-neck like that, bigger chested women tend to go for bras that separate the boobs so that they don’t look slutty.

    I can quite literally get my boobs up to my neck, and they look all round on top like fake boobs.

    Anyway, just defending my fellow big breasted ladies. For some reason, some people just can’t come to terms with the fact that some of us aren’t fat but have giant chimmies.

  24. lea says:

    Although I have never watched Mad Men, I was in awe when I saw a pic of her. I am a curvy redhead blessed with large breasts and she is my idol! In an era where stick thin shapeless actresses are the norm it is refreshing to see a woman with real curves!

  25. Cinderella says:

    She is quite proportionate and looks wonderful.

    I think the style she carried at the DGA was more flattering than at the Golden Globes. It’s about the colors, not her size.

  26. Ron says:

    My sister has boobs like Christina’s and they are natural. Sage Advice is right she looks different depending on the bra chooses. She chooses mimizing bras for work and exercise and at night those puppies are on display. I have to say I am amazed at their power over most men. If she is wearing a coctail dress or low cut blouse they drool over her.

  27. Ellen Smith says:

    I agree with the the NYT blogger. That dress is not flattering to her, and it looks very dated, like a prom dress from the 80s. She needs a better stylist.

  28. Sara says:

    I love her, I have loved since she was in Firefly years ago. I think she’s a great actress, and she’s always had big boobs so who cares if they’re fake? I don’t think she’s a size 12 though, I think she’s much smaller. In mad men they make her look very tall.

  29. ERM says:

    She is really beautiful but I don’t think she needs to push herself out of every dress. A little understated wouldn’t hurt but then again she wouldn’t get the same press.

  30. she looks like she is in heat all the time; so she has big breasts, big deal, dress feminine please; your dresses are fine but tone down the endowment, i do.

  31. omg, her husband is a geek
    she looks gorgeous especially the peach dress, but come on now, don’t pass so much attention to your gift(s) shall we say

  32. Ally says:

    She always looks gorgeous, and in the Golden Globes dress, too. It plays up her shape and her beautiful complexion. That sniping anonymous weenie needs to be outed and shamed. It’s just a way of saying that no one but size 0s should have pride and verve in their way of dressing: instead sizes 2-16 should hide their forms in simple sheaths and apologize for their very existence. Felix Unger.

  33. annie says:

    I think her husband is really cute. They make a good couple.

  34. Stephie says:

    lol @ the “giant chimmies” comment.

    Whether she has or hadn’t augmented herself, she’s a beauty who’s workin’ it. Good for her.

  35. Stella says:

    Adding on to SageAdvice’s info on large breasts…if they are real and that large, they are hanging down around her waist without a bra on. And, probably giving her back problems too!

  36. That’s sweet of her husband. I bet Christina is a geek at heat, too, and that she and her husband are just perfect for each other.:)

  37. lucy2 says:

    @Cinderella, I agree that the color makes a big difference. I actually liked the GG dress, but thought the color was too pale and slightly off for her skin tone (which is gorgeous). The red dress is a better color on her.

    I think she is very pretty on Mad Men, and perfect for the role.

  38. R says:

    I think she is a classic beauty.

  39. Carrie Thompson says:

    She’s gorgeous- most everyone on every comment board I have visited has agreed on that.
    She’s unique, and she doesn’t look like everyone else in H’wood, and there will always be those who want to snark about “big girl in big dress.”

    I absolutely adore her, and good for her husband for sticking up for her, as he should! I read an article about her when they were engaged and she was really cute about him- I’m sure they are a well matched couple who are equally happy to be with one another (though he is a slightly nerdy looking guy who landed a goddess of a woman!)

  40. rosie says:

    What the blogger said was horrible and untrue (about CH being “big”), but I love this dress on her so much more than the cream one. The color just made her skin look weird. That shade of burgundy is amazing on her, and that rosette is a very pretty detail. I think smaller details like the rosette, as opposed to the big ruffle, are more flattering just because she is very curvy.

    Also, I am so glad she isn’t wearing purple/blue hued makeup anymore! Like the cream, it just doesn’t compliment her skin. That one wedding spread she did a a bridal magazine had her in a horrid purple/pink lipstick. The dresses were lovely, but the lipstick made her skin look colorless and waxy.

  41. chatti says:

    square pecks

  42. gee_gee says:

    Those boobs can defend themselves, real or fake. But it was nice of her husband to try.

  43. Ruffian9 says:

    She’s just gorgeous. I would kill for her beautiful skin & hair.

  44. dragonlady sakura says:

    That girl is gorgeous no matter what she wears. A natural beauty is unique in this day and age of plastic people. Her husband probably thanks God every night!

  45. Mark says:

    Nice rack!

  46. Liz says:

    She is so lovely.

  47. alicia says:

    these are not real..i have fake boobs and i can tell you right now these are too

  48. Dhavy says:

    IMO they’re real and she’s not fat

    She looks beautiful, the haters probably wish they had her curves

  49. MiMi says:

    She’s GORGEOUS! So happy she is getting some recognition.

  50. Jag says:

    She is absolutely gorgeous and I can only hope to find as wonderful a man as she has apparently found.

  51. Daniel says:

    Big breasts, nice, hair, pretty smile, and glasses. that is freaking hot! Am I the only guy left in the USA that thinks that women that wear glasses are hot? Maybe because I like smart women….?

  52. anj says:

    i havent seen much of her but her boobs hahahahhaahahha they are hilarious!

  53. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Daniel: I’m a librarian (and a redhead) and no, you’re not the only guy who thinks glasses on a woman are hot. ;-)

    Some women have big perky boobs, so I totally believe they’re real. I have a friend who’s a DD and doesn’t even need to wear a bra–SO jealous.

    And the people who say that she should cover ‘em up…why?? Starlets who are a size 0 and a B cup can have 90% of their lil boobs hang out of every dress, but a more endowed woman can’t show off a part of her figure that is attractive and she’s proud of? Also, do you realize how hard it is to cover up big boobs?? Like I said, I’m a librarian and have to dress professionaly and fairly conservatively, and it’s damn tough to find flattering shirts that cover up bigger than average breasts-I haven’t worn a button-down shirt in 10years! LoL

  54. Jane says:

    They jiggle (yeah, I noticed) way, way too much to be fake. Anybody saying they’re fake are fanatically bad at discerning real and fake boobs.

  55. Marie says:

    In that first pic, she’s reminding me of Lauren Holly in the face.

  56. MooMooMoo says:

    She’s perfect!!! If I were a dude or were into chicks she’d be my dream wifey.

  57. CB Rawks says:

    Her boobs aren’t fake. They have been that size for years before she became so well known, and yes they move and look too real to be fake.
    Don’t bother getting the big hard fake ones anymore you sad desperate people, we can always tell!

  58. nico says:

    the funny thing is she cant weigh more than 140 and her waist is definitely no bigger than 27 inches. she is actually skinnier than the average american woman. (unfortunately)

    i think when she is dressed appropriately she is attractive.

  59. WILL M says:

    Real Proof, Christina Hendricks appearance on The View in late July 2010, put to rest any questions in my mind regarding christina’s breasts being natural, Her breasts jiggle and bounce, Implant augmented breast don’t jiggle and bounce that way. In other words they are natural i.e. real. By the way the interview can be found at a lot of places, however her walking to the stage has been edited out of the clips. To bad since her breast were vary mobile as she walked to the stage

  60. Exposed acne says:

    These natural methods are not as effective as treatments and special creams prescribed by your dermatologist, but may be helpful if acne is mild. In any case, it is important to always take into account the recommendations and advice given on how to prevent acne .

  61. Sailor says:

    If you look at her pics from the July 1999 issue of Playboy ( her appearances in the scifi show Firefly, you’ll see her boobs were much smaller than they are now. I think she looks great, but I think she’s had some work.

  62. orange says:

    The boobs are fake. No doubt she was curvy to begin with, which helps obscure the implant, making them pass for natural.
    She’s chubby in both photos, only the boobs got larger in the after:

    Let’s face it – if she didn’t have huge boobs, then people would just call her chubby. She also always wears some kind of girdle/shapewear & never shows her legs – likely because she has fat rolls & cottage cheese thighs.

  63. BB says:

    I agree with you, Orange. They’re fake. And her hips are obviously padded in the series. Sophia Loren used to wear padded panties to give her a hourglass shape.

  64. Vera says:

    I think they are fake, you see where the implants end…
    but fake or not i am not a fan of such huge breast, i saw a lot of them, the huge fake ones are mostly very hard and stiff (after some time they sag too), and if someone with huge breasts undresses, the breasts sag to the bellybutton or lower.
    additionally someday these girls get backpain, doing sports is more difficult and finding nice looking clothes is nearly impossible….
    everything above a d is awful, i’m a c and i wouldn’t change them for anything.
    oh for those who say fake breast can’t jiggle, you’re wrong, if you have some body fat (which she has) they bounce like natural ones.
