Christina Hendricks busted out the nerdy look as she attended an event in Australia. She probably doesn’t mind being called nerdy or intellectual, but don’t you dare call her fat or insinuate it because she’ll shut you down (in a nice kind of way). As she did with a recent Australian interviewer:
The female interviewer for the Sun-Herald, who happens to be pretty petite herself, asks Christina with a smile, “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?” As if for emphasis (or in our case, extra cringing), she motions both hands in an hourglass shape on the words “full-figured.”
