Mad Men's Christina Hendricks is on the cover of the UK's GQ September issue looking as hot as ever.
On top of taking sexy pictures, GQ had to opportunity to sit down with the busty actress and ask her all the pressing questions about her character Joan Harris and the hit TV show.
Here's what she dished to the gentleman's mag:
What's more unpleasant on set - being in incredibly tight clothing or smoking fake herbal cigarettes?
I adore the incredibly tight clothing! My own wardobe's changed - I've streamlined a little bit and definitely learnt from Joan's sleekiness and tailoring. As for the herbal cigarettes, for the most part I don't smoke as much as the guys do. I'm usually just strutting around a bit more so I don't actually have to be inhaling it. I'm lucky because I do have scenes where the cigarettes work beautifully to punctuate certain things I'm saying.
Obviously one of our all-time favourite scenes is the lipstick test in the two-way mirror in season one…
That scene is perfect for Joan. She's controlling the women - she has more knowledge than them - and she's also manipulating the men at the same time. I lean over and I quite simply show my ass to the men. When I read it I just thought it was so fabulous. I just thought, "How strong and amazing is this woman?"
Do fans expect you to be in character all the time?
Everyone assumes we're always going to have a cocktail and a cigarette in hand. Fans expect us all to be dressed up all the time. They always say to me, "You look so young. You don't seem as tall!" We have defined these characters - people always expect to see me in a pencil skirt. When they see me out of one - much like when they see Jon Hamm's hair when it isn't slick - they say, "Wait a minute, you're all 2010!"
Does it feel good to be a pinup?
Well, I'm thrilled. I'd love to be thought of as that…
If you want to read more of Christina's interview with GQ, it hits stands this Thursday.
