She sizzles on the small screen as ravishing redhead Joan Harris, but Christina Hendricks claims her "Mad Men" character was never meant to be sexy.
"When we did the pilot, that was not something that we discussed as a trait for Joan," she tells Parade magazine. "This is something that's developed as a combination of the costuming on the show, the hair and makeup, my portrayal of the role, and Matt's writing. It all kind of came together and that became much more of a focus later. It was just something the audience brought attention to."
Meanwhile, Hendricks may be lending her famous curves to the costume of a very different character: Wonder Woman. According to Vulture, Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn is hoping to helm a big-screen action film about the Amazing Amazon and wants Hendricks to play the heroine. "If I ever get to do it, she's going to be it," he says.
For her part, Hendricks is certainly game. "I've been wanting to wear that outfit my whole life!" she has said. "I'd love to [do it]. That would be such fun!"
