She does. The whole relationship with Peggy has been head-butting, but I think it's because they communicate in different ways. Joan is incredibly blunt, and it can come off as cruel, but I think she's always trying to help.
Joan knows her audience. And early on in her life, she realized that she could use her feminine power. She has a sense of humor. It's like "Wink, wink. I got your number, but I'm not playing your game."
I think Joan moves with the times as far as fabrics and color choices go. But she knows what works for her, and she sticks with that silhouette. Her hair hasn't changed in six years!
I have classic and feminine taste. I'm definitely drawn to vintage-inspired and ladylike things. I like an accentuated waist, and a strong shoulder works well with my figure.
It is tricky because I do wear a lot of vintage on the red carpet, and usually when I'm getting ready, I'll say, "We need to make sure that I don't look like I'm in a Scorsese film today." Sometimes I do something a little bit more modern with my hair. You have to mix it up.
I love a caftan in the summer. It's like my housedress. I have a collection of Camilla Franks in my closet. When my friends come over, they're like, "Really? That's so...colorful." But they make me happy.
We did it one night on a whim. We were just having fun together. It was never a reality.
I like the old-fashioned, vintage-inspired swimsuits with halters and maybe a little ruching, and the longer cut that's almost short-shorts, like Ava Gardner used to wear a lot, right?
Ha! Whenever we see something about it, he always says, "I told you from the beginning. I'm the one who called it first." So he just wants a little credit. Really, he's sweet and he's happy for me.
We used to share a trainer. Now I'll say something like "OK, we need to do push-ups every day," and at any time in the day, I can make him get down and do them, or he can tell me to do them.
Trying to make myself do it is my routine. We have an elliptical, a weight machine and free weights. I'm like, "OK, Christina. It's just an hour!"
Always! Always! And I sleep better and I'm proud of myselfall of those things.
I just wear a yoga pant and an old T-shirt. Keep it casual.
As I've gotten older, I realize that my metabolism has changed. I finally had to get on board with fewer carbs and starches and sugars. I fought it kicking and screaming! But now Geoffrey and I think, What can we replace this with to make it still exciting and delicious?
Greek yogurt. I love dairy, so if I can't have sour cream or creme fraiche, it's a great substitute. I really love the tart tanginess of it. So if I'm dying for French onion dip, I just put in Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.
I love cooking for my friends. It's nice to give them something homemade that your heart went into. That's where my motherly nature comes inwe got a puppy, and that's my idea of starting a family. People say, "Oh, that's practice for parenting," but if it's practice for anything it's to be a mom to another puppy. We've decided that we are not really interested in having children.
Years ago, I was scared to deviate from a recipe, but now I'm like, "Oh, I don't have that, so I'll do this instead."
I've never been that person who had a plan like "In five years, I'm going to do this." Things have shifted in ways that I would never have imagined. I never anticipated being a professional actor. I just assumed it would be in community theaterlike after my job, I would go to rehearsal and be in a play.
I sometimes get anxious about work or have fear of the unknown, but I try not to let it eat away at me. I turn to the people who are close to me and talk it out. I always feel better when my friends give me good advice.
Well, I woke up this morning and I heard good music playing and I smelled delicious food cooking downstairs. When I came down, my husband had his apron on and my dog was chewing on her bone. I was like, "This is perfect! This is exactly what I want to be doing right now." I felt very, very happy.
Cocktail: "A Brandy Alexander. It's not something I order all the time, but it's probably the best drink I've ever had. It tastes like a slice of pecan pie."
Face: "I always start out with sunblock or a tinted moisturizer. Right now, I'm using Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua with SPFit blends so well."
