Honestly, thank goodness. The same audience has been drowning in the paltry rip-offs like Pan Am and the failed Playboy Club that was a copy pasta taking place in its titular location. Playboy Club had a convoluted start and only lasted three episodes. Pan Am is… forgettable; it’s the same period, more or less, but on a plane. It’s filler until the real thing and its superior writing and multi-faceted characters.
Hendricks gives an interesting interview in which she talks about her husband, Geoffrey Arend. She admits that, upon their first meeting, she Googleed him then told him she wanted his babies.
On first being introduced to her husband in 2007 by Mad Men co-star Vincent Kartheiser: “Geoffrey walked in and I was like, ‘Who is this guy?’ He had amazing hair and was all dishevelled; he was running late and everyone was waiting for him. He just came in with this very high energy. He was just charming, funny and very magnetic. I got his number that night under the pretense of, ‘We could just be friends.’ And of course I immediately went home and Googled him.”
On coming on VERY strong: ”I cracked it out in such a big way. I was like, ‘You make me want to have a family.’ I freaked him out a bit…Thank God I didn’t spook him enough to make him leave.”
On getting married: “I felt more nurturing towards him [when we married], like he’s here forever and I’ve got to make sure he’s healthy and fed and clothed and loved. I felt much more connected to him. There’s something about having all your family in a room and announcing it and celebrating it that makes it very real.”
On what her husband thinks of her sexy image: “It’s incredibly flattering and surprising, and I didn’t think for a second when I started Mad Men that people would talk about me as being sexy or a pin up. My husband has a good laugh about it, of course.”
On her definition of sexiness: “Sexiness is about confidence and individuality. I can’t keep my eyes off the women you see in cities like London, New York and Paris; the way they carry themselves and put themselves together are always so unique. Sexiness is about being an individual and having conviction about what that is.” -via Cosmo UK.
