Christina Hendricks is named ambassador for the 2011 “Latisse® Wishes Challenge” that benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation®

The 2011 LatisseWishes Challenge was recently announced, and I had the wonderful opportunity to speak with their ambassador for this year, the very talented Emmy nominated and well known film and television actress, Christina Hendricks.

I asked Christina what inspired her to try the prescription treatment Latisse® that grows your eyelashes “longer, fuller, and darker.” She mentioned that she had been thinking about improving her eyelashes for quite some time. “I’ve always felt my lashes were short and thin, and in my profession, I wear a lot of false lashes and makeup, which take a toll. So when LATISSE® became available, I was curious to learn more. My doctor talked with me about lashes, and I was surprised to learn that some women may notice their lashes thinning over time. Women who notice these changes in their lashes now have the option to talk to their doctor about LATISSE® and see if it’s right for them,” said Hendricks. Christine was also very interested in helping the Make a Wish Foundation that benefits from the Latisse®Wishes Challenge“.

Christina shared a touching story about how she had found out about Make-A- Wish when, as a young girl, one of her classmates faced a life threatening illness. Quoting Christina, “LATISSE® is also a brand that contributes to children, and I couldn’t think of a better cause to support than the Make-A -Wish Foundation. When I was seven years old, I saw firsthand the difference a wish can make in the life of a child when a girl in my class got her wish to meet Eric Estrada.”

Christina is a very versatile actress, and eager about the beginning of another new season of the extremely popular (Television Series) MADMEN. .

I asked Christina about some recent films she had done that we could look forward to seeing, and she was very enthusiastic about a musical called “COMPANY” that she was in. It was filmed at the Lincoln Center and was released on June 11th. Cristina enjoyed doing “COMPANY”, and would like to do more musicals in the future.

She also spoke about the movie “DRIVE”, and what a great experience it was working with director Nicolas Winding Refn, and actor Ryan Gosling. (DRIVE is due to release in Fall of this year: Source-IMDB.com) .

I told Christina that the 2011 animation, “ALL-STAR SUPERMAN”, where she did the voice of Lois Lane totally got my attention, being a commercial voice talent. She said that it was really fun, and would love to do more animation! Christina has a terrific voice, and I look forward to hearing a lot more of her in future animation productions.

What an interesting interview with such a delightful person. I had only one more question for Christina and that was, with such a busy career, what do you do when you get some “Christina” time? She said that she enjoys cooking, knitting, and spending time with her friends, and her husband Geoffrey Arend.

Wishing all of the best to you, Christina, as you begin your ambassador duties with the 2011 LATISSE® Wishes Challenge!

(As quoted from the Press Release) “Inspired by the tradition of blowing on an eyelash to make wishes come true, the campaign (LATISSE® Wishes Challenge) is gaining momentum for the second year by rallying women in support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation®, a non-profit organization dedicated to granting wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions.”
