Christina Hendricks's May Cover Story
When I met Beau [her Canadian makeup artist], he said something like "I just want to have a caftans-and-casseroles day,” and I said, “That’s my life.” All I do is wear caftans at home and if I’m not going to one of the awards shows, I’ll invite my girlfriends over and make casseroles. I do a really good chicken divan. Broccoli spears, chicken and Velveeta and bread crumbs, and listen, you can try to replace the Velveeta, you can try to class it up, but it is not as good!
I love to cook. My husband is an amazing cook as well. When I’m working, he cooks and when he’s working, I cook. He’s kind of surpassed me recently. I got him a butchering class for Valentine’s Day. He’s been curing meats and making his own pastrami and bacon. He’s at an elevated status. I just reap the benefits.
On Yelp Revisionism:
I’m a Yelper. I make sure that if I have a really great experience I write about it, and if I have a bad experience I write about it. I Yelped the gutter cleaners that I used recently. They were so fabulous that I felt: “Everyone has to use these gutter cleaners, they’re so wonderful!”
Recently I went to a restaurant that I wrote a scathing review of. Then my friends said it was really good. I went back and it was GOOD! So now I have to go back and give it a good review. Which I will do.
