Christina Hendricks

Christina Hendricks, rose to fame as Joan Harris, later Joan Holloway in Mad Men and is admired as a busty role model. 

This article is a simple homage to a woman who broke the mould by becoming a Hollywood star without being a typical ultra slim clone.

Joan Holloway

The future Christina Hendricks was born Christine Elise McCarthy May 3, 1975 in Knoxville, Tennessee but primarily raised in Twin Falls, Idaho. An aspiring actress, she modelled before moving to California to try and get her big break.

She appeared in various bit parts before getting a part in ER as a battered housewife and a recurring role in Firefly. She landed other parts but we all know the role that launched her was as Joan Harris (nee Joan Holloway) on the Emmy Award winning TV series Mad Men.



Joan Harris and Mad Men

Mad Men has won many plaudits as well as four Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, to equal the classic Hill Street Blues, LA Blues and The West Wing.

However for many of us Christina Hendricks, as Joan Holloway and later Joan Harris, was the surprising star.

Interestingly, Joan Harris was only meant to be a peripheral (or guest) role but Miss Hendricks was so magnetic on screen that she became a regular.

Sexy Joan Harris

Her sashaying style and unadultered sexiness has seen men reaching for the TV controls to freeze frame and run slow motion repeats of Joan Harris in action. Have a look at this series of clips of her, a web page compiled of her simply leaving rooms. Joan Harris

Many commentaries on the TV series Mad Men, regularly discuss the racist, smoke laden, alcoholic and in particular the sexist attitude of the 1950's workplace

It is therefore more than a little ironic that almost every commentary also mentions Joan Harris, nee Joan Holloway's boobs. It just shows the same old fascination with big boobs is not going to go away any time soon. Even from people obliquely criticising sexism.

British Government Approved!

UK Government Crest

There are not too many American actresses sanctioned by the British government but that is what happened with Miss Hendricks.

In 2010 the Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone said, "We need more of these role models. There is such a sensation when there is a curvy role model. It should not be so unusual."

It was an odd thing for a government minister to say but she was trying to highlight the overexposure of 'skinny' models and the impact they have on body image among young people.



Did you like this page, did you learn something, maybe it reinforced you own views? I want to give as much (hopefully helpful) advice to the busty sisterhood as I can.

Please remember, we are all different. You may like to wear certain clothes and styles which I am suggesting that you should not. That is your absolute right. Do what makes you feel good. This site undeniably goes for the more modest approach because I feel all busty ladies already know how to be more racy if they wish.

It would really help me improve the site profile if you would click the Facebook 'Like' button. Pretty please! Susan
