Christina Hendricks Covers The Hollywood Reporter

Posted Thursday June 7, 2012 7:32 AM GMT

She plays one of the most desired women to grace the small screen, and Christina Hendricks garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

The 37-year-old actress looked quite the bombshell for the Joe Pugliese shot front page while dishing about everything from her role on "Mad Men" to her thoughts on being pigeonholed as an actress.

Highlights from Miss Hendricks' interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to The Hollywood Reporter!

On her role of Joan on 'Mad Men':
“I thought [she] was such a b**ch [at first], and I struggled sometimes trying to make her as real as possible because I thought, who would be so mean? People always ask me if I’m worried about being pigeonholed as Joan, but there isn’t another character like her. The show takes place in the 1960s and has such a specific mood and quality to it.”

On Joan having sex to gain partnership on 'Mad Men':
“The question is, what would you do to protect your family? Joan is raising her son all on her own. She has no help from anybody. So is it noble? Is it slutty? I don’t know."

On being pigeonholed:
"People always ask me if I’m worried about being pigeonholed as Joan, but there isn’t another character like her. The show takes place in the 1960s and has such a specific mood and quality to it.”

On her dream pairing:
“I’d love to do a Woody Allen movie."
