!! OMG, how to fail in business: Christina Hendricks’ agent fired her ass when she took on ‘MAD MEN’ role !!

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks revealed that her and her massive cha-chas were asked to pack their bags by her agent once she accepted her role portraying “Joan Harris” on the show.

While she and her manager loved the script, her agency told her not to take the role of Joan Harris. “They said, ‘It’s a period piece, it’s never going to go anywhere, we need you to make money and this isn’t going to make money,'” she said. “They ended up dropping me.”

OUCH! Yeah — I’m with her agency on this one. Who wants an actress who’s been nominated 5 times for an Emmy or who’s out shooting campaigns for Vivienne Westwood?! How humiliating!

    she went redhead against the advice of her agents too — and she says her bookings shot up immediately.
    good for her to walk her own path and trust her own judgement. it’s paid off for her.

    Okay, I am a “Gold star” gay, I’m gayer than gay splashed on gay and I am in awe of Christina Hendricks’ beauty!

    Just imagine the money she saved in commission and fees due to the stupidity of the agent and the agency. Looks like a win-win to me.
