It was in 1999 that remarkable screen personality Christina Hendricks started her career as an actress. Her debut was as Rhiannon in four episodes of Undressed. Shortly after, she landed her first starring role on the small screen, playing Kelly Kramer in Beggars and Choosers. After this ended, she had recurring roles in ER and The Court. From 2004 to 2005, she played Nicolette Raye in Kevin Hill, followed by recurring parts in Jake in Progress and Life. It was, however, her role as Joan Harris in Mad Men that brought her to the international spotlight.
She stayed on the show until its end in 2015. This led her to land roles in several movies. This includes Life as We Know It, The Family Tree, Detachment, Drive, I Don’t Know How She Does It, and Struck By Lightning. After Mad Men, she joined the main cast of the series Another Period. She has also played Trudy in Hap and Leonard and Elizabeth Bradshaw in Tin Star. Her recent works on the big screen are Zoolander 2, The Neon Demon, Bad Santa 2, and Pottersville.
Christina stays in shape by sticking to an active lifestyle. Though she doesn’t have the usual skinny figure that Hollywood actresses have, the Mad Men star isn’t bothered by her curvaceous figure even in one bit. She knows she’s fit and healthy. In an interview, she said: “I never even heard people talk about body types. Even now, it’s never been a focus in my life. I’ve always been fit, I’ve always been active, and I’ve always been healthy, but I’ve just tried to live my life the way I live it. It’s nice that I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback about it lately.”
When it comes to her fitness regimen, the actress said she mostly does “treadmill, does weight training, and uses a BOSU ball.” She was also a dancer until she was 19. During this time, she didn’t have to worry about her lifestyle. Now that she’s in her 40s, it’s a different story. She explained: “I have to constantly remind myself to check in and be good to myself, to take vitamins and exercise.”
