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!
