With her vibrant hair and stunning green eyes, Christina Hendricks—our May cover star—is best known for her role as sexy office-manager-turned-partner Joan Harris on Mad Men. While her on-screen persona is bold and glamorous, the real-life Christina Hendricks is much more down to earth.

She says, "Be kind to yourself and to others around you because if you can stay stress-free, you'll stay happy."
