Christina Hendricks Interview – Bad Santa 2 – “We have to stop worrying so much about our hair colour, our makeup, and our bodies”
Sitting in a cosy sofa in the Ritz Hotel in Madrid, Christina Hendricks is enjoying the hot Spanish weather rather more than she did the cold of Montreal where she shot Bad Santa 2 in January and February. Enthusiastic and light-hearted in person, the 41-year-old actress is the the polar opposite of Joan, her prim and proper Mad Men alter ego.
Q: You’ve been outspoken about how women need to break out of the kinds of stereotypes and limitations that society has imposed. How would you like women to define themselves today?
HENDRICKS: We as women need to learn to love ourselves more and not be so self-critical. We also have to give ourselves a break and stop worrying so much about our hair colour, our makeup, and our bodies. I think we need to let go more and be very strong and proud of who we are and what we can accomplish.
