Christina Hendricks is celebrated now for her huge boobs and her red hair and her huge boobs, but she tells the Mirror UK that things were much different when she was a kid in high school.
“There was a long corridor with lockers on either side and kids would sit on top of them and spit on you. It was like something out of Lord of the Flies.”
What? No it isn’t.
Born in Knoxville, Christina was still young when she moved to a small town in Idaho.
A natural blonde, she began dying her hair red aged 10 – to be like the heroine of children’s book Anne of Green Gables. Then in her early teens, the family moved to Fairfax, Virginia.
Christina says: “The girls there had purses and I still had my backpack from Idaho.
“Moving as a teenager is never easy. So I tried to set myself apart and it ended up with multi-coloured hair. It was how I was expressing myself.
“I was a bit of a goth with purple hair and I was also part of the drama group, so my friends and I were all weird theatre people and everyone just hated us.”
So, it turns out that she went out of her way to look ugly, and her plan worked. Congratulations? What is she, fishing for compliments? Because that’s a very unattractive personality trait.
