Christina Hendricks is a delightful actress who unfortunately is more famous for her figure than her comedic timing and screen presence. Her bod is always used as a distraction during interviews, preventing her from ever getting to discuss literally anything other than what she looks like. Apparently, her body is also a distraction on the road. The Mad Men actress has literally stopped traffic. When prompted by Conan O’BrienÂ coo-ing over Hendricks’ sexy appearance, she regaled him with a story of a cycling accident that was caused by her existence in public:
“I had one incident, but this was years ago. It was summer and I’d just gone out and bought this little wispy, white summer dress, and I was going out to meet my friends at a British pub, and my friend Louis was waiting for me outside. This guy was riding a bike by and he starts staring at me. Louis is watching it from a distance and he said the whole thing went in slow-mo. The guy just hit the curb and flew off his bike into the street. But this was one incident!”
No word on whether or not this guy was alright after he “flew off his bike into the street.” I suppose if this were my story, I’d leave out the part where the guy suffered severe head trauma or passed away because that’d be significantly less charming.
Though it’s kind of a cute (if a bit humble-braggy) story of bosoms and bike crashes, it’s mostly a cautionary tale about road safety. When you are using a wheeled vehicle, try to focus. Cyclists should be too caught up in biking safely and the wind in their face to ogle strangers’ bodies.
