Christina Hendricks on how she “freaked out” her husband on their first date

In the accompanying interview, Christina recounts how she Googled her husband, actor Geoffrey Arend, after meeting him for the first time and then “freaked him out” by confessing her love after only a few weeks of knowing him.

“I cracked it out in such a big way. I was like, ‘You make me want to have a family.’ I freaked him out a bit . . . thank God I didn’t spook him enough to make him leave,” she told the mag.

Christina, 36, married the (500) Days of Summer actor Geoffrey Arend in October 2009 and revealed in the interview that after the wedding she felt more “connected” to her husband.

“I felt more nurturing towards him [when we married], like he’s here forever and I’ve got to make sure he’s healthy and fed and clothed and loved,” she explained.

“I felt much more connected to him. There’s something about having all your family in a room and announcing it and celebrating it that makes it very real.”

In the interview, Hendricks says her husband finds her sexy pin-up girl image very funny.

“It’s incredibly flattering and surprising,” she says. “I didn’t think for a second when I started ‘Mad Men’ that people would talk about me as being sexy or a pin up. My husband has a good laugh about it, of course.”
