Christina Hendricks is a woman men love. Officially.

christina-hendriksMad Men‘s Christina Hendricks graces the new cover of Esquire‘sWomen.” issue. Her curves look so good even I want to reach out and touch them. (Then ask her whose idea it was for her to eat watermelon seductively for an inside shot. I guess we’re supposed to be waiting for the juice to drip onto her ample cleavage? I suppose that’s more creative than having her lick an ice cream cone, which wouldn’t have matched her nail polish.)

Hendricks also penned an open letter to men revealing a number of truths about the way women think and what they want/don’t want from a man. Give it a read, guys. She speaks the truth about why you get laid (intelligence, humor, and your smell*), and offers helpful tips such as, use the word “panties” more, and “No shorts that go below the knee” and “Also, no tank tops.” I tend to agree with her on just about everything, save the statement “No man should be on Facebook.” I don’t consider that a deal breaker. Ladies, did Hendricks get it right?

* Anyone other than me still love the smell of Drakkar Noir? [Answer.]

    Too bad Hendricks couldn’t show for the shoot and they had to take a pic of Julianne Moore after a bagel binge. FLUCKERY!

    • Ceballos

      That’s actually pretty spot on.

      Then again, as a guy who’s crushed on Moore since the mid-90’s and a guy who’s currently crushing on Hendricks, I just don’t see that as a bad thing. :)

      • JLI

        Heck, I’m a straight woman and I have long-standing crushes on both of these women!

    • OMGq

      The photos on the Esquire website of her by the trailer were used in a previous issue. Hopefully they have some new shots in the new issue.

  • ^^^^

    I was thinking the same thing: Why isn’t she on the cover?

  • Fatima

    Christina Hendricks is pure sex on Mad Men. Outside of the show’s costumes, I have yet to feel the same way.

  • Ambient Lite

    WTF happened?!? Looks nothing like her. I will admit that the other pics in the mag of her ever so slightly rattled my position as a heterosexual woman. Yowza, she is amazing!
    I will also admit, Mandi, that I still LOVE the smell of ‘Cool Water’. (crickets)

    • BLM

      Haha, Cool Water! That takes me back to 7th grade…

    • OMGq

      The best thing about Cool Water was that Brian Buzzini was the model (I still have his Playgirl “Man of the Year” issue).

    • Madd

      Cool Water was what my first boyfriend wore…
      But yeah, I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again…I would go gay for Christina Hendricks.

  • Dean

    She’s just about the sexiest lady person ever. In the history of the world. In the solar system even. Hot babes on other planets bow to her hotness. ‘scuse me while I wipe up the drool on my keyboard.

  • sluggo

    I want to go to there.

  • Ceballos

    …I don’t use my Facebook account that much. I’ll go close it right now! My girlfriend kinda hates that I’m on there anyway.

    • Ambient Lite

      But then who will monitor your “Christina Hendricks’ Rack” group??? Think of the fans!

      • Ceballos

        I thought you were joking until I saw that that’s a real group – now I’m annoyed that I didn’t create it.

        Maybe I’ll start one dedicated to her butt. Her rack is always grabbing all the headlines and magazine covers, so I bet her backside is starting to get jealous. Anyone who’s seen her in “Mad Men” knows her backside is equally legendary.

      • Ambient Lite

        There’s a fascinating picture of her from behind in that Esquire group. I insist you use it for your group.

  • Babs

    I agree with the author, where everything Christina says is true, except the FB thing.

    • KS

      And I agree with you agreeing with her, except for the “panties” thing. Not sure why, but I’ve always found that word to be gross.

      • orville

        I agree about the “panties” thing too–creepy word. Kind of has a pedophile feel to it.

        And I’ll admit (to my shame) that I still love the smell of Brut. A couple of my brothers wore it back in the 70s. I always used to sneak into their rooms to sneak a sniff off the bottle.

  • AM

    Yep, Mandi, Hendricks is definitely right about the smell thing but (I personally am still a Hugo Boss fan) but other than that I think we each have our own deal breakers. I agree with you that Facebook is not a deal breaker for me, but what is, is ugly shoes. I don’t know why but I always have to like the guy’s shoes. Hey, isn’t this a “Sex and the City” episode…

  • Kevin

    I read somewhere that she won not only the majority of the male votes, but the female votes as well. She is an equal-opportunity fantasy, apparently.

  • Xena

    CH is awesome. Gorgeous face, ravishing body. I loved her open letter. So, so, so true. Intelligence and humor are definitely very sexy. As for Drakkar Noir — I’m with you Mandi! It still has that “pull” for me.

    • Ceballos

      I agree with your stated reasons for Christina’s awesomeness (which are plain for all to see), however the thing that really pushes her over the edge for me is that she’s also EXCELLENT on “Mad Men.”

      • Madd

        Yeah, that’s another reason I’m in love with her- she’s so, so good on Mad Men!
        Every time January Jones gets nominated for an award I get a bit angry because she is NOWHERE near as good as Christina is.

      • orville

        Love her in Mad Men, but I still have my girl crush on her from her guest spots on Firefly.

  • Jean

    Love this list. It’s like those email forwards you used to get, the “50 Things Girls Want Guys To Know” with items like “We love hugs from behind.” Only this is less trite and better written, so I don’t feel embarrassed enjoying it.

  • Deidra

    I LOVE Christina. What a lovely, sexy woman!

  • Emm

    I don’t watch Mad Men but I think this woman is stunning. I like seeing a female celebrity with a more natural look. She isn’t cookie cutter looking. I actually feel like I’ve grown tired of that overly ripped muscular look on women. Don’t get me wrong, I admire fitness and I believe it’s important to be fit. But I’m sort of tired of the “ideal” female body in our society being more masculine and ripped. It’s kind of refreshing to see a woman with softer curves and some weight on her. This woman is clearly not overweight. She’s just a very voluptuous woman. Very beautiful.

  • dan

    She played an awesome femme fatal on Firefly….I think that was her truly at her hottest…she was one of those girls that just catches ur breath….

    • JD

      How about Azzaro for a sexy cologne???
