The Joan Holloway of 'Mad Men' refuses to answer question in which she's referred to as a 'full-figured' woman in a cringe-worthy interview.
People need to be careful with their choice of words when referring to Christina Hendricks' curvaceous figure. In a recent interview with Kate Waterhouse for Sydney's Sun-Herald, the "Mad Men" actress made it clear that she didn't like to be called a "full-figured" woman.
"You have been an inspiration as a full-figured woman. What is the most inspiring story that you can remember where you've inspired someone?" the interviewer asked Christina. Although she's not impressed by the question, the actress handled it like a pro instead of going off in a rant.
"I don't know ... I'm sorry," Christina replied while shaking her head and chuckling awkwardly. Kate rephrased the question with the same term, "You've been known as an inspiration for women as being a full-figure...," only to get cut off by her guest. "I mean, you just said it again!" Christina pointed out.
The interviewer finally took the hint and then skipped the cringe-worthy question. "I think calling me full-figured is just rude," the Joan Holloway depicter reportedly said when the camera wasn't rolling.
