Christina Hendricks Went Ginger For Attention

Christina HendricksCHRISTINA Hendricks dyed her hair red to get attention.

The Mad Men star — who is a natural blonde — admitted she was “obsessed” with children’s book Anne Of Green Gables as a child and while she originally changed hair color to look like her literary heroine, she realized the shade attracted attention.

“When I was 10, I was obsessed with Anne Of Green Gables and I wanted to have her beautiful red hair,” she said. “So my mother said, ‘Let’s just go to the drugstore and get one of those cover-the-grey rinses!’

“My hair was very blonde at the time but it went carrot red. I was over the moon – and I went back to that colour again and again.

“I’ve always attracted attention for the way I look and that’s not a bad thing if you’re trying to make your mark in the business. But after a while you just want people to notice you for your work!”

The curvaceous beauty revealed while her UK size 14 figure makes it difficult to find designers who will give her dresses, she always chooses outfits she thinks are “pretty”, regardless of their style.

“At the end of the day, you have to remind yourself to wear the things you love — go with what you think is pretty,I’m still struggling to get designers to give me some dresses.

    Miss merry…for most designers it would be a major achievment for them if she chose their dress…they just don’t want to give an ounce to fit her ample chest…i guess their afraid people like you would just give up trying to look good after you seen her wear there dresses.
