Christina Hendricks - Goth and Leather Babe in HS
Mar 4, 2011
Christina Hendricks was a "goth and punk" at school. The 'Mad Men' actress - who is known for her elegant style -had a very distinct look when she was a teenager and admits it meant her beauty was often overlooked.
She said: "I was a goth and a little punk in high school. I had knee-high Doc Martens, a leather jacket, black, purple and red hair and black lipstick.
"So no-one was saying, 'You beauty! Yeah, get her in the magazines.' "
The 35-year-old beauty explained she had a "tough" time at school and chose to keep her head down to avoid getting into fights with her classmates.
Christina explained to Stylist magazine:
"It was a tough high school, although I thought it was quite fashionable. You got a real mix of social and financial backgrounds among the students, which caused tension. There were lots of fights and violence and it was just not a nice place to be.
"I tried to keep my head down and avoid conflict. The way I looked caused a little bit of conflict but I was really just trying to set myself apart."
