Mad Men producers got the memo: “Real Women Have Curves.”
Matthew Weiner, creator and executive producer of the Emmy-winning AMC series set in the 1960s. reportedly ordered actresses on the hit show to skip the gym in order to stay curvy, industry snoops told PopEater.com on Monday.
The fitness clause comes after busty actress Christina Hendricks (Joan Holloway on the show) was chastised by a New York Times blogger for her curvaceous figure at the 2010 Golden Globes ceremony in January.
Petite January Jones, who has gained acclaim for her role of as jilted housewife Betty Draper on the show, was met with scorn by the show’s top boss after he deemed the blonde bombshell “too thin.”
“He would prefer we didn’t work out and that we eat really well, so we look like healthy women,” Jones, 32, told UK magazine Tatler earlier this year.
