Looks like UK’s Daily Mail needs to do more fact-checking on their anonymous sources. An unnamed person told the British publication that Christina Hendricks is starting the first diet of her life. “Christina has got sick of all the talk of her being the curviest woman in Hollywood. For her it basically meant she was being called fat.” The article further claimed that cutting carbs and alcohol to shed 35 pounds.
The article sparked outrage. The Mad Men star’s sexy curves have given hope to big girls everywhere, and have been hailed as a return to a more realistic ideal for a woman’s body.
Happily, Chloe Melas of HollywoodLife confirmed that the claims are false. Melas ran into Hendricks at Kristin Stewart’s Welcome to Riley’s after party last night. “I’m completely happy with my body, I’m not dropping 35 pounds!” The actress was reportedly surprised and shocked by the story.
We’re happy to hear the rumors are false.
