When you think Christina Hendricks, you think Mad Men, right?
Hendricks portrayed Joan Holloway on the critically acclaimed TV show for all seven seasons.
We remember her for amazing moments like this:
But then we say American Beauty, and you don’t think of Christina Hendricks, right?
As well you shouldn’t, because she wasn’t technically in the movie.
There is plenty else to remember about American Beauty, including a certain plastic bag.
AKA The scene that inspired Katy Perry.
But Christina Hendricks was involved with American Beauty, just not in a way you would expect.
Remember the poster?
Well, Hendricks was very specifically involved in that poster.
Peoples’ minds are literally blown.
My favourite thing about Christina Hendricks revealing that the hand on the American Beauty poster is hers, is literally EVERYONE 🤣 ELSE’S 🤣 REACTIONS 🤣 pic.twitter.com/mhqh7qCUmI

It's even stranger that it's her hand and another model's stomach.

American Beauty was released in 1999-when Hendricks was 24 years old. Hendricks, now 44, has had a very varied career, including appearances in the film Drive, in the Lincoln Center production of Stephen Sondheim’s Company, and as the voice of Gabby Gabby in Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 4.
Add this to the roster.
Well, I bet she's glad she had a hand in a selling the movie.
I'm not sorry. https://t.co/T6UuRLPcSt

Today I learned that Christina Hendricks was the hand model for the "American Beauty" poster.
This is the film I reviewed and written a reaction paper for our (3rd Year Highschool) Religion class discussing about the 7 capital sins. LOL pic.twitter.com/Qs5Msdgj9U
