CHRISTINA HENDRICKS = Mrytle Wilson "..The thickish figure of a woman blocked out the light from the office door." (63) "Her face, above a spotted dress of dark blue crepe-de-chine, contained no facet or gleam of beauty, but there was an immediately perceptible vitality about her as if the nerves of her body were continually smoldering." (63)
Christina Hendricks. 5 feet, 8 inches. Size 14. Yes, I am putting her up there with scientists, humanitarians, etc. Because an actress in Hollywood today has got to have some serious courage to walk on the red carpet without her skeleton showing.
