    Um, if she isn't full figured, I don't know what is.

    It's what made her famous, but it's not supposed to be WHY she's famous. Her job is acting. Surely her size and shape should be no more relevant than her hair.

    She shows off part of them (at that size, it's kind of hard not to), but she's not a topless model. Her trade is acting, not posing topless. It's like getting a job selling cosmetics and having strangers/customers feel entitled to ask why your nose is so big. You can't help your face any more than she can help her body. (OK, maybe she could change it somewhat, but she shouldn't have to - any more than the rest of us.)

    I understand what you're saying, but Christina Hendricks is not Dame Maggie Smith - she's making her money off the back of what she looks like and she's happy to do that as long as she considers the attention flattering to her sense of what's complimentary.

    I'm not saying a woman should be reduced to what she looks like and I understand being offended had the interviewer referred to her as "plus-sized" or "plump," but full-figured is only an insult if you choose to take it as fat. She is voluptuous, and she's usually happy to show it off.

    I've never seen her act in anything. Only know who she is because of her tits.

    ^^^ I saw her in Firefly, long before she became really famous through Mad Men. I can see both sides though. Yes she is full figured but at the same time she must be sick to death of it being brought up again and again in almost every interview. I'm sure that there is more to her than her body and perhaps she'd like interviewers to consider that and be a little more creative in their line of questioning.

    My only gripe against her is that she needs some serious advice on how to dress as a boobylicious woman. Banning librarian style blouses with huge pussycat bows from her wardrobe would be a huge step in the right direction.

    ^seriously. if she's pissed about that she should say "yes i am but please ask me questions about my acting or this conversation is over". i don't know how she can't honestly think she's full-figured.

    The only movie I ever saw her in was on Lifetime and it was called Hunger Point... she wasn't big/big breasted (she was rather thin)... and after having witnessed that, she better be thankful for her full-figured, big-tittied ass - cause as an actress, she ain't all that great!

    I saw her in that Drive movie with Ryan Gosling I think? I don't remember much about her acting in it, so it couldn't have been that spectacular. And I've seen on her Mad Men.

    The pics plus this comment equals the truth.

    And I still think she could have handled the situation on her end better than she did whether the interviewer was inappropriate or not.

    She paid for those big boobs.

    OK, I had to edit. I thought she paid for those boobs, not sure. If she did, she shouldn't get pissed. If she didn't, I could see why it bothers her. My best friend has HUGE natural boobs, and she get's really pissed when it's pointed out.

    I don't know why the hell someone would want to look like that, but she did use to have smaller boobs I guess. But she's also gained a lot of weight.



    She says they're real for what that's worth. They don't look real in the pic on the left.

    Her face looks better when she's bigger or maybe it's that her tits draw the attention away from her aesthetically challenged face...

    I don't think she's "full-figured" based solely on her breasts, though. She's got hips, thighs, and a rear end that's fully developed, too. Her breasts are just the most noticable, partially because they're very large, but also because she really tries to showcase them about 90% of the time.

I don't think the interviewer was trying to be rude, but the question was perhaps inappropriate and uncomfortable and does apparently carry negative connotations for Christina. On the other hand, maybe it would have been better if she laughed it off. Though, why she had to offer an example of how her full figure has inspired people is kind of weird.
    Yeah, I don't know what on earth she was supposed to use for an example either. It's like a school assignment, "write 1000 words detailing how your physical voluptuousness in a shallow, image-oriented profession dominated by borderline-anorexic influences has inspired the young women of today to value their natural feminine curves. Cite sources and give concrete examples."...blargh. I'd have to get drunk to write that crap.

    LOL. Those are not natural boobs. They are always on display at awards events and on Mad Men. While it's a stupid question, it is predictable in her line of work and she should have had a prepared answer.
