Esquire: Christina Hendricks is “the best looking woman in America”


The gorgeous, fabulous, lovely and amazing Christina Hendricks garnered the May cover of Esquire Magazine. What’s that? You didn’t even recognize her? Yep. Even though Christina was voted the “best-looking woman in America” by Esquire voters (once again, not to be confused with Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, or Esquire’s Women We Love). Women who resemble this Photoshopped monstrosity more than Christina Hendricks: Ann-Margaret, Lindsay Lohan, Julianne Moore, Debra Messing, Tiffany, and Amy Adams. Christina was like my eighth guess.

Should we just be happy that the lovely Christina took the honors rather than someone grossly overrated (cough cough Megan Fox cough)? Sure. Although Megan is still in the mix, which goes to show you that some men still have pretty crappy taste:

The radiant red-haired bombshell from the TV show, “Mad Men”, with the insanely massive knockers is the May 2010 cover girl for Esquire Magazine. In the issue, the magazine took a survey comprised of over 10,000 women and asked them various questions from Politics to sexuality.

For the choice of “Best-Looking Woman In America”, over 30% of the vote went to Christina Hendricks (hence the cover)! The other 17% of the “Best-Looking Woman” votes went to Adriana Lima (who is NOT American, mind you) and 14% went to Megan Fox.

In the article, Christina gives out her own personal notes on how to treat a woman. ["No man should be on Facebook" is one of her pieces of advice.]

Also, another question that was asked in the survey was, “If you are/were a lesbian, which of these women would you most want to sleep with?” A whopping 31% of the votes went to actress Zooey Deschanel followed by 20% for Megan Fox and 14% for Adriana Lima. Really? Lesbos prefer Zooey over Megan Fox?

Zooey Deschanel? No disrespect to Zooey (who I do like, in general), but that alone makes me think that this whole process was rigged. I know wonder if 30 % of Esquire dudes who vote really adore Christina. Maybe they seriously have no idea what my Joanie Holloway really looks like? Here’s a sample of Christina in some red carpet candids:

    What a shame…

    the only Photoshopping she needs is the one that puts her in my bedroom :)

  2. rundee says:

    When seeing the picture I thought “Who´s Christina Hendricks again, that name reminds me, but I have never seen her before” AND I JUST WATCHED THE COMPLETE 1. AND 2.SEASON OF MAD MEN THESE PAST DAYS!!!! So if I can´t tell who the f*** this is, who can?
    I´m so tired of this extreme photoshopping&make-up-photos. Why can´t they show them how they really look like??? Not even when they´re beautiful you´re allowed to see them. I don´t get this!

  3. rundee says:

    And another thing: Why the hell did they give her a porn-star-wig????
    Ugh *disgusted*

  4. truthSF says:

    I think all the guys voting for her were staring at her Tiggo Biggies the whole time.

  5. islandgirl says:

    correct me if i’m wrong but doesn’ it say esquire surveyed WOMEN not dudes for this? agree on the photoshop comments!

  6. freckles says:

    Yeah, sorry Kaiser but if you read the inset it clearly says “10,000 women surveyed”. This has nothing to do with men’s taste, which unfortunately may be the reason Christina won.

    And #3, that would be “Tig ol’ bitties”, if you reverse the T and B it’s “big ol’ t*tties” which is why people say it that way.

    Now that I’ve made myself look like one of those correct-a-holics, I’m outtie.

  7. beachbuni says:

    They needed to photoshop this cover more!
    Strands of hair crawling across her face? Yuck!

  8. Mrs. Robinson says:

    I love Christina Hendricks and think she is absolutey worthy of this “award/honor” I have no idea whose face is on the body in the photo, though. The mouth nose and eyes don’t even resemble the shape of Ms. Hendricks. Is it a montage? Go figure…

  9. truthSF says:

    Thanks freckles, I knew it was wrong, but wasn’t sure of the actual spelling.

  10. jinni says:

    Yeah, they think she’s so beautiful that’s why the photoshoped her face so much that now she looks like Julianne Moore and Bernadette Peters love child. If it weren’t for her breast I wouldn’t believe that was her.

  11. GatsbyGal says:

    Hell, I’ll agree.

  12. ien says:

    why’d they put julianne moore’s face on christina’s body?

  13. rebecca says:

    she does NOT look like herself. i think what those 30% of women loved was the fact that ms hendricks embraced everything imperfect about her- and they pretty much destroyed that by photoshopping her face to nevernever land of lost souls.

  14. The Old KC says:

    The scariest thing about this Photoshopped cover is the missing nipple. Why is there alabaster skin where her nipples should be? It just looks freakish.

  15. Gaby says:

    I recognized it was her but not by her face. Who else in Hollywood has a body like that? I thing the reason she looks so different is because her eyes are like dark brown here for some reason and she has blue eyes

  16. Daniel says:

    Just because she has amazing boobs doesn’t mean she’s pretty. I actually find her face rather plan and I’m not a big fan of red hair. Sorry but compared to someone like Angelina there’s just no overall comparison.

  17. gemma says:

    Her boobies are mesmerizing . . . and I’m a straight woman. I would have voted for her, too.

    I love red-haired women who look feisty. She could have been a 50′s pin-up, or a Vargas girl. Very pretty.

  18. Nihilistic says:

    It’s Marisa Tomei if it’s anybody. I love Christina Hendricks and yet if I passed this magazine at a check-out counter, I could stare at it for 3 hours and still not realize it was her.

  19. B says:

    Sometimes I feel like I’m literally the only person who does not understand this woman’s appeal.

    Maybe it’s just the fake red hair that does me in. I don’t know.

  20. canadianchick says:

    She’s delish would love to look like her, even the chopped version.

  21. Marjalane says:

    Being no fan of Meghan Fox, at least she’s somewhat consistant. This is a pretty woman, but sometimes she just looks like a big boobed bimbo. I doubt if the “voting” has any relevance at all- all these contests are determined by whose publicist has the loudest voice and biggest checkbook.

  22. snapdragon says:

    that cover doesn’t even look like her. why take someone who is so lovely and make her look like a cheap whore?

  23. J says:

    Christina Hendrick is pretty. Megan Fox is also very sexy. They are both very attractive women.

    I came to realize that in terms of looks, women are more judgemental than men. We men are just happy with any woman as long as she is beautiful. That’s why we have “women we love”, “sexiest women” “the best-looking women”…..we can go on and on and on….How can you compare Lily flower to rose? They are all beautiful!

    So Megan Fox is beautiful too!

  24. lucy2 says:

    I think she’s gorgeous, but agree that they made her unrecognizable on the cover. Definitely looks more like Julianne Moore. Weird.

  25. suz says:

    This cover photo is really bizarre. I think she is very good looking, but I’m very tired of seeing her everywhere, busting out of her ill-fitting dresses and whatever. And I hate Mad Men too.

  26. Erin says:

    I actually think her face on the cover looks a lot like her. Not too photoshopped.

  27. GimmeABreak says:

    She is, by far, the hottest thing to come thru Hollywood in a LONG time!! Note to Angelina: you were that hot too…50lbs. ago!

    I think her body is amazing and I hope she we see a lot more of her. LOVE her!!

  28. Jane Q. Doe says:

    I sometimes mistake her for Bryce Dallas Howard. Until I see The Chest, of course…

  29. melymel says:

    I couldn’t figure out why linda blair was on the cover.

  30. me says:

    im lesbian and i simply adore Zooey…a hell lot more of Megan Fox whom i totally despise…i tend to have a brain, hence brainless human beings tend to not appeal to me…moreover, Zooey is truly beautiful and classy unlike Megan…and literally none of my lesbian friends like Megan Fox btw,…

    and of course Christina is absolutely gorgeous…except for that cover where its obviously someone else’s face

  31. Huma says:

    More photoshop phuckery. Great. NEXT.

  32. buckley says:

    Could not agree more…

  33. Blackwood says:

    I love freckled redheads and juicy or very tall women, so maybe I’m biased, but I think she deserves the votes.
    The other women in the list are beautiful too, in different ways. Although I think Megan is sexy, I just find her too generic and fake looking for my taste, so I’d personally prefer Zooey too, she looks nice and fresh, and seems more real than Megan.

  34. Kim says:

    No one is looking at her face -If she didnt have big boobs eqsuire wouldnt have even mentioned her because facially she is not pretty at all. Her boobs are disgustingly large and make her look fat. Put those gross fake watermelons away! Ugly girls always show off their FAKE boobs to detract form their ugly faces (Katy Perry, Susan Sarandon, Mariah Carey, etc).

  35. Granted says:

    Glad she won. I love voluptuous women with a large bosom. The haters here are jealous of her funbags, which is understandable: they’re spectacular!

  36. media browski says:

    Yes, she is the most gorgeous woman in America. I could found a religion on that bod.

  37. sb says:

    I LOVE Christina Hendricks! Men want to see women that look like women, not like little boys. Christina has the curves, the hips, the waist, those amazing tits, beautiful face and lips, and that great hair. She is so incredibly sexy, any man alive would want to jump on her. She is built like a fertility goddess. Every time I see a picture of her, I instinctively stop in my tracks and stare thinking, “who IS that?” We’re so unused to seeing pictures of truly real, curvaceous women in print that actually seeing one is almost an act of dissent. She is a breath of fresh air. Here’s to voluptuous women, the kind that men have been lusting after for millennia.

  38. Brie says:

    You know, she kind of looks like a red headed Angelina Jolie.

    And, I think she’s beautiful

  39. Sarah Meyers says:

    Christina is absolutely stunning! I agree with those who said she is a breath of fresh air. And I’m not just saying this to give those who are curvaceous a sense of empowerment (although deserved) but because I actually believe that curves are way more attractive than skin, bones and photoshop techniques. She deserved this ‘title’, if you will, hands down.
