And yet, the 36-year-old actress tells Cosmopolitan UK's March issue she never intended to be an international sex symbol. "It's incredibly flattering and surprising, and I didn't think for a second when I started Mad Men that people would talk about me as being sexy or a pin-up," Hendricks admits. "My husband has a good laugh about it, of course."
"I can't keep my eyes off the women you see in cities like London, New York and Paris -- the way they carry themselves and put themselves together are always so unique," the famous redhead says. "Sexiness is about being an individual and having conviction about what that is."
