Christina Hendricks Was Dropped By Her Agency For Agreeing To Do 'Mad Men' & Here's Why
In an interview with The Guardian, Christina Hendricks reveals she was dropped by her agency when she agreed to play Joan on Mad Men. According to Hendricks, her manager encouraged her to accept the role, but her agency was hesitant, telling Hendricks, "It's a period piece, it's never going to go anywhere, we need you to make money and this isn't going to make money". NEVER. GOING. TO GO. ANYWHERE. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. Hendricks' former agent probably cries themselves to sleep every night in shame and regret as Hendricks tallies her Emmy nominations for her role as sex bomb Joan Harris seven seasons of Mad Men later.
Big mistake. Huge mistake.
Not only has Hendricks enjoyed a wildly successful run with Mad Men , she's become what Elizabeth Day calls "one of the most recognized, acclaimed and lusted-after women in the world." She's also gained an impressive fandom, a "legion of borderline-obsessive" admirers: In 2010, Hendricks was named "sexiest woman in the world" by Esquire magazine. Everyone lover her, she basically rules the world and has the general population springing a collective perma-boner. Christina Hendricks officially rules everything. It's a shame her agent didn't see her queen-of-the-world potential before her career took off.
