Video: Christina Hendricks stops interview after being called full-figured


An Australian fashion editor called Christina Hendricks full-figured (twice), much to the dismay of the Mad Men actress.

During an interview with the Australian Sun-Herald, Christina Hendricks refused to answer a question about being an "inspiration to full-figured women."

The actress reportedly responded off-camera "I think calling me full-figured is just rude."

Hendricks was voted Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive in 2010, and has been vocal about being admired for her shape in the past.

In a 2010 interview with Health magazine, she said:

"It's such a compliment...Because of all those times I had agents who were like, 'You have to lose some weight,' and all of a sudden, people are celebrating it. It's like: 'Oh, thank you! Thank you for letting me be me.'

Perhaps she thinks it's time to stop going on about it.
