Christina Hendricks (born May 3, 1975) is an American actress best known for her starring role as Joan Holloway in the AMC cable television series Mad Men, and as Saffron in Fox's short-lived series Firefly.
As one of the most famous redheads on the planet (no disrespect to Prince Harry), Christina Hendricks admits she’s always craved a crimson coif.
The “Mad Men” actress tells the February 2016 issue of Glamour, “I was 10 years old the first time I colored my hair. I had a very cool mom! I really wanted red hair, so she thought it would be fun to put on a color rinse. When I was young, I was very much into Anne of Green Gables, and Anne had red hair. I also watched Gilligan’s Island, and of course I loved Ginger, and even though I Love Lucy was in black-and-white, I knew she was a redhead. There was just something about her…something sparkly!”
The “Italian Job” stunner and the “Mad Men” star were in the house to premiere their new flick “Dark Places,” adapted from the novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn, slated to hit theaters on August 7th.
Stepping out for a swanky shindig, Christina Hendricks showed up at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles on Thursday night (July 16).
The crimson-haired starlet was in the house to celebrate her cover for the Women of Influence issue of Los Angeles Confidential magazine, and she was joined by her “Mad Men” costars Kiernan Shipka and Stephanie Drake.
She scored a career-making role in the AMC series “Mad Men” and now that the show is over, Christina Hendricks misses playing Joan Holloway.
In her interview with LA Confidential, the gorgeous actress explains how it felt for her to shoot the final episode and then see the show wind down on television months later- “It’s sort of like when you finally get over a breakup, and then they come back and they want to go out on a date again, and you’re like, Wait a minute—I got over you! No, I don’t think I’ll ever get over it.”
As one of the most beautiful women on television, it’s no wonder Christina Hendricks was tapped to introduce the brand new all-aluminum 2016 Jaguar XF in Manhattan’s Flatiron District today (March 31).
The “Mad Men” actress wore a stunning red pantsuit and strawberry blonde coif as she made her rounds at the New York Auto Show, posing for photos and greeting guests.
