Christina Hendricks: Model Agency Hated 'Ugly' Red Hair
Flame-haired actress reveals modelling agency thought it was 'terrible'...
Christina Hendricks has revealed her modelling agency thought she looked "terrible" with red hair.
The curvaceous beauty is a natural blonde, but decided to turn flame red early in her modelling career.
She told the Daily Mail: "When I first started modelling I was blonde. Then I got a job and they wanted to do my hair bright red. I'd always wanted to, but the head of my agency was like, 'You look terrible. It's so ugly, you cannot have red hair'."
Christina went on: "I came back as a redhead and couldn't get my hair back to blonde for two days - in the meantime I had to audition.
"I booked two or three jobs, because there were a lot fewer redheads than blondes, and I was like, this is working for me, I'm keeping this!"
And now she wouldn't have it any other way.
Hendricks added: "I think it does make you stand out. People remember you when there's a sea of faces. It helps."
