Christina Rene Hendricks (born May 3, 1975) is an American actress who is famous for her curvy figure. Well, she's actually best known for playing Joan Harris on AMC television series "Mad Men," but the curvy figure is part of the deal.

There is a lot more than "Mad Men" to the fabulous Ms. Hendricks, so let's see what we can find out.

Christina now claims to have had issues at Fairfax High School. As with many beautiful actresses, she subsequently claimed to have been bullied and made an outcast. She also claims to have adopted a "goth" look which was popular at the time.

Christina then moved on to modelling in her twenties. At age 24, she nabbed an appearance on MTV series "Undressed" playing Rhiannon, appearing in four episodes. As Christina likes to say, "Most people in Los Angeles have that on their résumé," but not everybody uses it as a springboard to stardom.

The "Undressed" break quickly led to more roles on television series. Christina played Kelly Kramer on "Beggars and Choosers" in 2000-2001, then made four appearances on top-rated "ER" in 2002. She also appeared in several television movies such as "The Big Time" (2002) and "Hunger Point" (2003).

Christina put in her time with guest-starring roles on television series such as "Tru Calling" in 2004 and "Firefly" (as Saffron) Her next regular series role was in "Kevin Hill" during the 2004-2005 season.

Christina kicked around Hollywood for a few more years. In 2007, though, came her biggest break, the role on "Mad Men." The series ultimately lasted until 2015 and saw Christina appear in 92 episodes.

The "Mad Men" gig was a career role. Christina played the office manager of advertising agency Sterling Cooper & Partners. There was a great deal of sexual politics in the series. Ultimately, Christina received six Primetime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

Hendricks is a terrific actress, and she is known for two things: her trademark red hair and her hourglass figure. Christina has heard it all, but she does not like the term "full-figured," so don't go there with her! However, no less than the British Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone has said:
Christina Hendricks is absolutely fabulous... We need more of these role models. There is such a sensation when there is a curvy role model. It shouldn't be so unusual.
Many people compare Christina to Marilyn Monroe, who was not particularly known during her time as a full-figured woman. However, by current standards, Monroe would be a bit more voluptuous than most actresses and models.

"Mad Men" did not take a tremendous amount of time to film, as 92 episodes spread over 8 years leaves a lot of weeks for other projects. Throughout the run of the series, Christina took several other projects each years, including voicing Sam Harper on video game "Need for Speed: The Run."

After "Mad Men" concluded its very successful run in 2015, Christina was a household name. Since then, she has remained extremely busy in films such as "Bad Santa 2" (2016) and "Pottersville" (2017).

Christina also has had recurring roles on television series "Hap and Leonard" and "Another Period."

Christina married to fellow actor Geoffrey Arend on October 11, 2009. They do not have any children, and Christina has said that they do not intend to.

I choose a project based on who's involved and my faith in them and the script and the rest you just let go.

Christina Hendricks leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

I don't think any woman in the world could get tired of being compared to Marilyn Monroe.

Christina Hendricks leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

I know that when I play Joan and she's going to react a certain way, I have to remember that she can only behave this way because the men at work wouldn't want her to act this way, or it's only appropriate to act this way, or a lady would do this. It's become so natural to me to look at the scripts of Mad Men (2007) in that way that I immediately almost become a woman of the 60's in my mindset.

Christina has made the "Sexiest Women" lists in, among places, FHM and Men's Health.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Full House Legends

Triumphant Twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen (both born June 13, 1986) are American actresses, fashion designers, producers, authors, and businesswomen. In fact, it is tough to adequately encapsulate all the fields they have entered and, by and large, conquered. At heart, though, they have become a massive social experiment, an exercises in subjecting a pair of twins to the glare of media celebrity virtually from the day they were born. So far, they have not only survived this unusual exercise, but prospered.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


The Olsen twins have become famous in recent years for their fashion endeavors. However, it is undeniable that they are best known for jointly playing the character of Michelle Tanner on the ABC sitcom "Full House," so let's start there.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


The twins were born on June, 13, 1986 in Sherman Oaks, California. They are sororal twins, meaning not identical but simply born at the same time (from different sperm and eggs). This fact confuses some people, because they can compare pictures of the two, notice subtle differences, and draw conclusions from that.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


However, it is utterly normal and expected that Ashley and Mary-Kate should look slightly different - though they seem to have gone out of their way at times to suggest that they are identical by dressing and grooming themselves alike. It helps that they actually do look quite alike.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


The Olsen twins have other siblings, an older brother, Trent, and a younger sister, Elizabeth. They also have a younger half-sister, Courtney Taylor, and younger half-brother, Jake, from their father Dave Olsen's remarriage.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


In late 1987, the producers of ABC sitcom "Full House" were looking for a baby to play a role in the fictional Tanner household. Due to California child labor laws, they sought a pair of babies to fill the single role of Michelle Tanner. Executive Producer Bob Boyett chose Mary-Kate and Ashley, who began playing the role in early 1988, when they were nine months old.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


"Full House" turned into a smash hit. It ran for eight seasons, a total of 192 episodes, and ended in 1995. During the show's run, Mary-Kate and Ashley mostly stuck with the role of Michelle Tanner, though they did make an appearance as Michelle on "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper" in 1992. They made quick appearances on television films "To Grandmother's House We Go" (1992), "Double, Double Toil and Trouble" (1993),  feature film "The Little Rascals" (1994) and "How the West Was Fun" (1994), but these did not involve a lot of extra effort. Thus, when "Full House" ended, the Olsen twins had a chance to start over completely, with their only real acting history being the "Full House" role.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


Thinking ahead, their parents created the holding company DualStar Entertainment Group, LLC for the twins in 1993. This was intended to oversee their post-Full House projects. Ashley and Mary-Kate took over DualStar when they grew into adulthood. Fashion is their lives these days, as they largely have given up acting.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


While DualStar's activity has followed the ebbs and flows of the twins' careers, it remains operational. It is fair to say that DualStar has evolved into a company involved in projects far beyond its original purpose of simply producing the Olsen twins' post-Full House films. These include real estate holdings and fragrances.


Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


Following the end of "Full House" in 1995, Mary-Kate and Ashley made their film debut in "It Takes Two" (1995). While they played separate characters "Amanda Lemmon and Alyssa Callaway), the twins switched characters at times during the film, continuing the whole idea that they were interchangeable.

Mary-Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Continuing with the "Two" theme, the Olsen twins later twins in "Two of a Kind." This time, they played Ashley and Mary-Kate Burke, twin sisters with opposite personalities. The show only lasted for one year, but played in reruns for years.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


Over the next few years, the Olsen twins continued with similar projects. Mary-Kate received a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Fox Family television series "So Little Time." Their shows during this period did not fare particularly well, but they kept getting projects because of their celebrity that did not really lead anywhere. These included a cameo appearance on "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" (2003).

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


In 2004, the twins tried another film, "New York Minute." It did not do well and pretty much ended the Olsen twins' acting career together. Ashley retired from acting after "New York Minute" at the ripe old age of 17. Mary-Kate has had a few roles since then, most memorably as Tara Lindman on television series "Weeds," but she appears to have given up acting for the time being as well.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


There was a reason the Olsen twins made such a dramatic change in their careers in 2004: that was when they turned 18 and became co-presidents of Dualstar. They quickly moved to capitalize on their lingering fame within the teen demographic by expanding the company beyond video and film into areas like fragrances and home decor.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


They Olsen twins founded luxury fashion brands The Row, Elizabeth and James, and the more affordable lines Olsenboye and StyleMint.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


Running Dualstar turned into a much more lucrative endeavor than making television shows. Dualstar products got shelf space in over 3000 stores within the United States. The Olsen twins' fame extended around the world, however, and their Dualstar brand found its way into 5300 stores globally.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


The Olsen twins turned to fashion design, and it has worked out fantastically well for them. Mary-Kate developed the "homeless" look, which involves oversized sunglasses and some low-rent pieces. Having gained their fame as children, the Olsen twins found it easy to sell clothes aimed at young girls.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


The Olsen twins did not just focus on mass-market products, however. Their couture line, The Row, is named after Savile Row in London and has become highly respected within the business, winning numerous awards. Their success with The Row made the Olsen twins Womenswear Designers of the Year, as decided by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), for 2012 and 2015.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


The Olsen twins' fashion success has freed them from the everyday concerns of ordinary mortals. According to the usual sources, their combined net worth is somewhere north of $100 million, which is more than enough reason to quit acting.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


The decision by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to give up acting is understandable, given their huge success with Dualstar and The Row, among other projects. However, this has caused some grumbling among their former colleagues on "Full House," who wanted them to appear on the recent Netflix spinoff "Fuller House." John Stamos in particularly tried to get at least one of them to appear, but both demurred for one reason or another. It appears unlikely that they ever will appear on "Fuller House," but the show occasionally references them and takes subtle digs at their refusals to appear on the show. Showrunner Jeff Franklin has indicated that he would be open to the Olsen twins returning if they chose to do so.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


While not as high-profile as they once were, the twins still have their moments in the spotlight. Mary-Kate, for instance, was a close friend of late actor Heath Ledger and was involved in a murky sequence of events directly after his death.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Mary-Kate later dated Olivier Sarkozy, half brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy. They married on 27 November 2015 in New York City.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Ashley, for her part, filed a $40 million lawsuit against tabloid magazine National Enquirer for depicting her as being involved in a drug scandal, which she vehemently denies. She has dated some people, but remains single.


Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com


According to Mary-Kate in InStyle:
It’s important to control the image of your brand, something we have known since we were very young. It’s a lot more work but we’re up for it.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Unlike almost every other young celebrity these days - and, despite their enduring fame, the Olsen twins are still in their 30s - the sisters do not have social media accounts. The Olsen twins consider this a positive; according to Ashley in "The Edit":
Because we don’t dive into that whole world [of social media] and we don’t have Facebook, we’ve never been connected to our fans in that way. We’ve stayed quite sheltered in that sense.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

Mary Kate says:
I have a husband, two step-kids and a life. I have to go home and cook dinner. I ride horses on the weekends. You find the thing that helps you relax and if you don’t have it, you have to look for it. Or you get burned out and then you’re not productive.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


According to Bob Boyett in People magazine:
Their mother would tell me that they sometimes cried on Saturday or Sunday mornings because she would say, ‘No, it’s not a Full House day.' So I do think they loved doing it.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

We have been trying to teach the media that it's 'Mary-Kate' and 'Ashley' Olsen since we were 12 years old. I guess... I guess you just learn to accept it.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com

Me and Ashley feel like we're totally different.

Mary Kate Ashley Olsen legends.filminspector.com

I like to go to parties where I know everyone. How are you going to have fun with people you don't know?
