Christina Hendricks: not 'full-figured' and not impressed
Christina Hendricks is a size 14. The same size as Marilyn Monroe and the same size as most of the women in Australia and the United Kingdom.
Though there’s no doubting that the Mad Men star is voluptuous (apparently she’s a bountiful 38DDD), it became obvious in a recent interview with Australia’s own Kate Waterhouse, that Hendricks definitely didn’t appreciate being called ‘full-figured’ not once, but twice by the interviewer.
After Hendricks shot Kate daggers following the first offensive question “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?” Kate still didn’t seem to get the memo, and repeated the same question again – albeit in slightly different words – before being paused and then eventually stopped by a fed-up and flustered Hendricks.
As openly awkward as the moment might have been, we had to ask, was Hendricks well within her right to get so huffy?
We’ve done our research, and the average dress size is 12-14 in Australia, 14 in the UK, and 16 in the USA, so it would seem Hendricks sits firmly in the average weight range, rocking a figure not dissimilar to infamous screen siren Marilyn Monroe. So we can’t help but think it must be pretty tiresome to be called ‘full-figured’ all the time, when really you’re just like everyone else – with a pretty amazing pair of breasts… just saying….
