“I guess my mom raised me right. She was very celebratory of her body. I never heard her once say, ‘I feel fat.’ Back when I was modeling, the first time I went to Italy I was having cappuccinos every day, and I gained 15 pounds. And I felt gorgeous! I would take my clothes off in front of the mirror and be like, Oh, I look like a woman. And I felt beautiful, and I never tried to lose it, ‘cause I loved it.”
I feel like I’m stuck somewhere between Doris Day in Pillow Talk and Midnight Lace, when what I need to be is Kim Novak in just about anything.
CHRISTINA HENDRICKS ON FIREFLY!
I didn’t know! I wasn’t told. How could I have prepared for this?!
VINCENT KARTHEISER: Your hair looks so beautiful up like that, darling.
CHRISTINA HENDRICKS: Well I’m glad you think so, ‘cause it has been up for four seasons!
VINCENT KARTHEISER: No, I know. I know! I’m just… you’re so rude. You are so rude.
CHRISTINA HENDRICKS: [laughing] I’m glad you appreciate the hairstyle, because it does not change!
VINCENT KARTHEISER: I’m saying in comparison to you right now. You look awful right now.
CHRISTINA HENDRICKS: [still laughing] You’re basically saying, why don’t you put your hair up.
VINCENT KARTHEISER: Why don’t y— I wish you would. Anyone have a scrunchie?
CHRISTINA HENDRICKS: You’re just used to seeing me like that! A scrunchie.
VINCENT KARTHEISER: What, people don’t use scrunchies anymore?
CHRISTINA HENDRICKS: I hope not.

#CRYING omg christina i am dying and ilu so i am taking your rebuffing vincent at face value other than saying WHY CAN’T YOU TAKE A FUCKING COMPLIMENT like i normally would because vincent seems like the kind of guy who would say ‘i really like your shoes today’ and you’ve worn those shoes for like at least the last seven months and you’re sweaty and horrible and they smell bad but thanks vin
Harry Crane: He wants to know are you taken, kept or merely browsing?
Joan Harris: She’s browsing and like most of us she’s disappointed with the selection of merchandise.
