Mad Men sex siren Christina Hendricks has revealed the secret behind the delicious curves, which drive her army of red-blooded male fans salivate… she has an unstoppable appetite for pasta.

Christina revealed that the perfectly proportioned curves came as a result of moving to Italy in her early days as a model and living on a diet of pasta and cappuccinos.

Christina, who celebrates her 38th birthday tomorrow, said: “I started out as a model and when I went to Italy to build my book, I gained 15lb from all the cappuccinos”

The Mad Men star admits she is confident and comfortable with her body, adding that she has “long understood sex appeal is about projecting self-confidence and charm.”

“I saw my body change and I loved how it made me look more womanly amd sexy”

Also known for her iconic red locks, the Tennessee-born actress spoke about when she decided to leave her natural blonde locks behind.

She added: “I was obsessed with Anne Of Green Gables and I wanted to have her beautiful red hair”

“So my mother said, ‘Let’s just go to the drugstore and get one of those cover-the-grey rinses! I went to school the next day and felt like myself”

Christina has previously been voted sexiest woman alive by Esquire Magazine.
