Christina Hendricks's May Cover Story
On Her Other Dream:
I always wanted to be a florist. Unless you’re buying flowers for a funeral, you’re only going in there for a pretty happy reason. In fact after the first season of Mad Men, I worked at a florist. We had shot the pilot and it hadn’t aired yet. We had to wait a year to shoot because Matthew Weiner was finishing The Sopranos. And all these actors that I’d worked with would come in and say, “Oh...Everything OK?” And I said “No! I’ve just always wanted to work at a florist.” And they would say, “OK, can you help me pick out a bouquet?” And I’d be like, “I’ll make you one!” I’ve always been pretty good at it. I love a peony, I love a delphinium, I like garden-style flowers, less formal, I like something with a berry. An English-garden kind of situation.
On Her Future:
I just want to be happy and healthy. I want to be able to spend many, many fun years with my husband. That’s all you can ask for.
