Christina Hendricks used to be one of those people who weren’t into Instagram. However, the actress finally decided to change that, and got on board with the photo and video-sharing social network.
During her interview on Popcorn with Peter Travers, Hendricks talked about experience of joining Instagram and she said: „I got on Instagram. I finally broke down with a little help from my friends. I’m slowly easing into it. It’s fun. I’m enjoying it. But it’s work.“
The Good Girls star compared having a social media platform to having a whole different job.
She also added: „You sort of feel like you want to share yourself and be true to yourself that, you know, your image and personality is so manipulated by interviews and magazines and these kinds of things. So this is your platform to just say, ‘This is who I am.’ And it’s not being manipulated by anyone else. This is just me.“
The actress talked about other people’s assumptions which aren’t true, saying: „I think a lot of people sort of assume that I’m Joan from ‘Mad Men,’ that maybe I’m a bit more stern or a little more uptight or maybe a little more put together. I’m a mess. I’m a barefoot, jeans wearing, dropping things on the floor girl. I’m not nearly as sort of put together. I think people think maybe I’m prissy. I’m not.“
A third season of the crime comedy-drama television series, Good Girls, premiered in February, and Hendricks said that there will be many plot twists.
During the interview, she talked about her caracter, saying: „I play your typical Midwestern mother – middle class, hardworking, organized – but found herself sort of on autopilot and lost maybe sight of her dreams and what her needs were.“
„It’s a quirky show. It is quirky and weird and fun and has great music. And it’s dark. And it’s an interesting tone that you haven’t seen before. And I really think it’s unique,“ the actress concluded.
