Christina Hendricks is the face of Specsavers (which I guess is like LensCrafters) in Australia and she was in Sydney earlier this week promoting some contest for the brand. Christina sat down for an interview with Kate Waterhouse from the Sydney Morning Herald (via Warming Glow) and awkwardly giggled in an “I’m gonna slap this little twat down with one of my chest domes” kind of way when Kate called her a full-figured woman while making the sign for “big bitch” with her hands. Kate asked Christina a question about being an inspiration to full-figured women, and the ginger goddess’ publicist stepped in to say that no questions about her weight are allowed. Kate either didn’t hear what the publicist said or decided to really burn the ginger off of Christina’s locks, because asked the question AGAIN!
SMH (which today stands for Shaking My Head) said that Christina stopped the interview and when the cameras were off, she said to Kate: “I think calling me full-figured is just rude.” SMH also said that a radio host was told to not ask Christina any questions about her magnificent chichis.
Some think that the term “full-figured” is a compliment and some think that “full-figured” is just a condescending way of calling someone a lard ass heffa. Christina obviously thinks the latter. I don’t know what to think. I’m waiting to hear Jennifer Livingston’s thoughts on this.
But seriously, Kate Waterhouse is in the wrong and it was very unprofessional of her to ask Christina questions about her body. Christina wasn’t there to talk about the heavenly mounds of cashmere fluff that make me wish I was a miniature person so I could joyfully bounce on them like I was in a Sleepy’s commercial. Christina was not there for that. Christina was there to talk about eyeglasses! So if Kate Waterhouse was a true journalist she would’ve asked Christina more relevant questions. You know, she should’ve asked Christina if Specsavers puts a special anti-streak coating on their glasses that makes it really easy for you to wipe away cum splatters without worrying about streaks. Kate should’ve also asked Christina if ever she paints a pair of red lips around her belly button, puts an extra large pair of eyeglasses over her titty balls and then makes her stomach say sexy things a sexy librarian might say. Those are relevant and smart questions. I swear, that Kate Waterhouse is no kind of serious journalist.
