Christina Hendricks reveals Emmys date
The Primetime Emmys are on Sunday, and "Mad Men" star Christina Hendricks knows exactly what lucky fellow she'll walk the red carpet with.
The 36-year-old actress, who's nominated for a best supporting actress in a drama series Emmy, told NYMag's Vulture that she'll be attending the ceremony with a 19-year-old Make-A-Wish participant.
She explains: "I'm an ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and one of the children, his wish was to go to the Emmys, so he's going to be my date."
Hendricks added that her husband, Geoffrey Arend, her father and her father's girlfriend will also join the two. "It's going to be really exciting. I'm really excited for him to experience that."
Hendricks, who has not one but two films ("Drive" and "I Don't Know How She Does It") in theaters this month, will next bring her talents to Chris Colfer's coming-of-age comedy, "Struck by Lightning."
Colfer, known for portraying Kurt Hummel on "Glee," has been branching out in TV, film and children's publishing. Colfer wrote "Struck by Lightning," which is expected to be along the lines of John Hughes classics "Pretty In Pink" and "Sixteen Candles," and will star along with Hendricks.
"Chris wrote this really great script," Hendricks tells Vulture. "I was really honored and proud to be a part of it. Chris is doing some really great stuff, so I was honored to be in his first movie."
The adoration flows both ways: Colfer told the Hollywood Reporter that Hendricks is "one of the sweetest people I've ever met. She's literally a Disney princess in human form."

VinS September 21, 2009 wow! grabe naman post na to, grabe sa uptade! Wish you all the best
She'd be an epic TF!
Her head looks so dag gone big in this picture..ewww.
Wow, that's not really a flattering picture of her. I don't think I'd be able to whack it to that particular picture.
Her boobs are the lest attractive thing about her. Beautiful face, great hourglass figure (of which her boobs are only one part). She is flawless.
D'Oh! That's, "least."
Please, please, please would someone hack her phone!!!!!!
When I saw this headline, I thought they'd spelt "Hendrix" wrong.
I thought, "now that would make an interesting emmy appearance".
Red heads are so ugly. This old hag compared to say...... Pamela Anderson.
Unfortunately for you, I also happen to be a nice person. But, go ahead and believe that just because someone is pretty, they must be "mean." That's the argument un-attractive women use to make themselves feel better in their lonely bed at night......oh she must be a b***h because she's pretty.
I love her chest hams!!
Seriously, she's doing a wonderful thing, giving a once in a lifetime opportunity to a boy who maybe doesn't have a whole helluva a lifetime left and all you morons are talking about her physical appearance/attributes. I really haven't seen anything she's done, but I applaud her for stepping up and doing what she can instead of being a poser.
Damn she is an ugly red head!..but I woody love to snort a bump off her pale white ass and wash it down with a tal cold 40!..BooYah!!..crack rawks!
She is a great looking lady. CNN picked a horrific picture of her, as though to bait the trolls. Once again, taking it to the lowest common denominator, CNN... I wish you'd raise the standards rather than stooping.
All that said, the guy is a lucky guy to be going with her!
How could you??? You're taking him, and not ME???
And after all the times I held your picture in my left hand...
Don't worry, he washes his hands afterwards... most of the time.
Jay you need to hurry back to Chaz before it realizes your on the computer again and really beats you for being off leash again
I am way prettier than her. Just sayin. Plus I bet her weiner is bigger than mine.
I bet a lot of people's wiener's are bigger than yours.
She seems like a nice lady, but let's face it – if it weren't for her boobs we wouldn't be blogging about her.
I don't know about her, but there are several actresses I could name, who wouldn't be big stars without their spectacular mammaries.
More power to Keira Knightley for making it big in Hollywood on her acting and pretty face alone.
I wish for a motorboat.
I have a certain wish I would like her to fulfill...
What is the big deal – she's soooooo un-attractive. Typical red head.....hot headed but NOT hot at all in the looks department.
For all of you ready to attack....no jealousy from me as I am a very cute blonde. Beautiful is J.Lo not this worn out nobody.....
Umm Hi. Redhead here. Nice way to generalize there. We are not all hot headed and there are plenty of very attractive redheads including this lady.I am sure you are a very cute blonde but you are also adding to your own stereotype of being a "dumb blonde" I am not attacking, just pointing out don't dish it out if you can't take it.
Hey ladies, I wanna join in the fun as a cute brunette. Don't be so judgy blondie.
She's not even a natural redhead... She has already acknowledged that she's been dying her hair red since she was a teenager. She's a natural blonde.
Oh dear. lol You're full of yourself, aren't you? One of those who probably goes around saying "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful." But you're rotten inside and we all know it [no matter what you look like on the outside.]
Oh yeah, J Lo, best looks that money/plastic surgery can buy. Way to set the bar high for beauty with that pick.
Sounds like somebody lost something to a Red Head.
Damn she/he/it is ugly.
I'll you who she is.
she's TIG BITTY CITY!!
( . Y . )
t t t t t tig ol bitties!!
I'd hit that like a balsa wood beach chair in a cat5
I so want to play motorboat with her.
Apparently Colfer didn't see her on Firefly!
"Mammaries, light the corners of my mind
Milky porcelan colored mammaries..."
I hope she wears a dress strong enough to hold up her assets. That pink dress almost didn't make it.
