Christina Hendricks, 37, does not wish to be referred to as "full-figured."
RadarOnline reported that when Australian Sun-Herald Fashion Editor Kate Warehouse asked Hendricks, ""You have been an inspiration as a full-figured woman. What is the most inspiring story that you can remember where you've inspired someone?" Hendricks appeared nervous and laughed.

She then replied, "Um, I don't know I'm sorry." and turned her head to get her publicist's attention.
The reporter later asked the same question, and Hendricks was clearly uncomfortable and looked off camera for her rep. She then responded, "I mean ... You just said it again."
The actress didn't answer the question and her rep came to the rescue telling the journalist to stay on topic. The journalist, then, repeatedly apologized.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Hendricks said off camera, "I think calling me full-figured is just rude."
The newspaper also reported that one member of the press warned "not to ask any questions about her breasts."
When Health magazine asked Hendricks about women admiring her body type, she replied, "It's such a compliment, because of all those times I had agents who were, like, 'You have to lose some weight,' and all of a sudden, people are celebrating it. It's like: 'Oh, thank you! Thank you for letting me be me.'"
Hendricks has previously griped about the press commenting on her body type and how her figure looks in the outfits she wears. In a Glamour interview, she once said, "You get everyone out there judging your dress and your hair and your lipstick, and you just think, 'Let me get dressed up and go to a nice party. Why do you have to be so judgmental?'"
