Not so shocking: "Mad Men" maneater Christina Hendricks is the Most Attractive Woman in America, according to a survey of 10,000 women in the May issue of Esquire. A little more surprising? Her unadulterated opinions on sex, marriage and Facebook. Read on to see some of the wisdom she disseminated in an open letter to men, then check out the rest of the coverage over on Esquire.com.
Listen up, Jesse James; marriage can be sexy, too:
"Marriage changes very little. The only things that will get a married man laid that won't get a single man laid are adultery and whores. Intelligence and humor (and your smell) are what get you laid. That's what got you laid when you were single. That's what gets you laid when you're married. Everything still works in marriage: especially intelligence and humor. Because the sexiest thing is to know you."
Don't expect that you'll be able her to poke her:
"No man should be on Facebook. It's an invasion of everyone's privacy. I really cannot stand it."
On why men should make mental notes:
"When I first started dating my husband, I had this weird fascination with the circus and clowns and old carnival things and sideshow freaks and all that. About a month after we started dating, he bought me this amazing black-and-white photo book on the circus in the 1930s, and I started sobbing. Which freaked him out. I thought, Oh, my God, I mentioned this three or four weeks ago and talked about it briefly, but he was really listening to me. And he actually went out and researched and found this thing for me. It was amazing."
A little chivalry goes a long way:
"Stand up, open a door, offer a jacket. We talk about it with our friends after you do it. We say, 'Can you believe he stood up when I approached the table?' It makes us feel important. And it makes you important because we talk about it."
