Christina Hendricks Talks Childhood Near-Death Experience

Posted Wednesday October 19, 2011 9:03 AM GMT

She single-handedly brought the curvy figure back into style, and Christina Hendricks is one of Hollywood’s hottest ladies.

But when she was a child, the “Mad Men” actress was almost killed in a freaky car accident with her family while camping.

She explained to FOX's Hollie McKay, “I was in my family’s VW bus, we drove everywhere and my family would go camping all the time. We were up in the mountains and it was snowing, and my dad was sightseeing. And we just slowly went off the road into this ditch and we didn’t know how deep it was… we really thought we were dying.”

“My mom went, ‘okay everyone, here we go.’ And luckily we stopped, after about five feet down. But we were tilted in this snow bank, my dad had to go out and hitchhike and get us pulled out. It was terrifying. I remember feeling a sense of calmness. I was like, ‘Oh, this is the calm you get before you die.’”
