Christina Hendricks: Don't Call Me "Full-Figured"

During an interview Down Under, the Mad Men star shuts down a reporter who used a poor choice of words to describe the star's famous curves

Christina Hendricks might love her curves, but be careful how you ask her about them. The fashion editor from Sydney, Australia's Sun-Herald made the mistake of broaching the topic by called Hendricks "full-figured" (not once, but twice!), and the Mad Men actress didn't respond well to the backhanded compliment.

"You have been an inspiration as a full-figured woman. What is the most inspiring story that you can remember where you've inspired someone?" editor Kate Waterhouse asks her.

As you can see in the above video, Hendricks clearly gets flustered by this question and responds by giggling and saying, "Um, I don't know. I don't know…I'm sorry."

Waterhouse tries to rephrase the question by saying, "You've been known as an inspiration for women as being a full-figure...," but Hendricks quickly cut her off. "I mean, you just said it again," she says.

At this point, you can hear Hendricks' publicist telling Waterhouse that her client gets asked weight questions all the time and that they should skip the topic entirely. It's true that Hendricks' rise to fame has been coupled with many complimenting the actress on her curves, but we can see how that could get old at interviews. Still, it might have just been the way Waterhouse asked her question that ticked Hendricks off.

"I think calling me full-figured is just rude," Hendricks reportedly said off camera.
