“Mad Men” star Christina Hendricks claims she was refused roles because her voluptous frame.

Hendricks revealed that prior to being cast in the hit show, she could not land a job in Hollywood.

“I auditioned for things where I knew I killed the audition. I knew I did,” she told The Times. “‘It was like, ‘Oh, should I give you my sizes now, or…?’ And they would call up and say, ‘We just don’t think that a doctor would look like that.’ I would be embarrassed to even say that out loud.”

The 42 -year-old star expressed her dismay.

“There should be a million different body types on television.”

She added, “It’s outrageous that there aren’t. And it’s outrageous that we’re sitting here having this conversation and it’s even a thing.”

It wasn’t until her “Mad Men” casting call that things turned around for Hendricks.

“I walk [into my audition] a little bit defeated. But I just put on my game face and did it. And I got this role. And ever since then I get all these, like, amazing strong-a–ed, powerful women.”
