Hendricks dyed hair red ‘to get attention’

Sydney: Christina Hendricks originally dyed her natural blonde hair into red because the star was ‘obsessed’ with children’s book ‘Anne Of Green Gables’ as a child.

The ‘Mad Men` star later realised the shade attracted attention and started dyeing it again and again.

"When I was 10, I was obsessed with Anne Of Green Gables and I wanted to have her beautiful red hair,” a news daily quoted her as saying.

“So my mother said, ``Let’s just go to the drugstore and get one of those cover-the-grey rinses!`` My hair was very blonde at the time but it went carrot red. I was over the moon - and I went back to that colour again and again.

"I’ve always attracted attention for the way I look and that’s not a bad thing if you’re trying to make your mark in the business. But after a while you just want people to notice you for your work!" she said.
