The Word: Thank you, Christina Hendricks!

Christina Hendricks

Thank you, Christina Hendricks!

Here at Metro, we’ll take just about any excuse to run a picture of Christina Hendricks. Now that “Mad Men” is on hiatus, it’s admittedly a little more rare, but don’t think we’re not scouring the gossip sites, waiting for her to say something mundane about married life that we can dress up with a couple jokes, slap a headline on, and then get back to online shopping while the photo does the real work.

But today? Today, Hendricks has smiled upon the gossip world with this little gem in the Daily Mail: “It’s so bizarre that people are constantly asking if my breasts are real or fake,” she tells the British paper. “They’re so obviously real that anyone who’s ever seen or touched a breast would know.”

Anyone still reading? Anyone? Exactly. If you need me, I’ll be cleaning out Anthropologie’s sale section.

Enough, William and Kate

Now that they’re back from honeymooning, it was revealed that William and Kate were kicking back in the Seychelles. They picked the island nation because of its many nature reserves, according to a government rep: “They saw a turtle nest hatching. Not many people get the timing right to be able to see the eggs hatch and the little turtles swim out into the sea,” the rep tells UsMagazine.com.

You know what else most people don’t get to experience? A royal wedding. Way to rub it in, guys. We can’t wait to hear about the unicorn that delivers your mail every dewy morning.
