Christina Hendricks perfect choice for playing Wonder Woman: Refn
New York: Christina Hendricks is the perfect choice to play Wonder Woman because she has the right looks for it, says director Nicolas Winding Refn.
The director says that the 36-year-old `Mad Men` star is the ideal person to star as the iconic DC comic super heroine in the forthcoming big screen adaptation.
He thinks that Hendricks will appeal to both the male and female audience, reported New York magazine.
"First of all, she`s an awesome actress. Second, she`s so beautiful and so sexy and such a powerhouse of a woman that Liv, my wife, said that`s the prototype of a real woman. She has everything a guy would want. And yet she`s everything a girl thinks is the right way to look. So for me, she`s the perfect choice.
"And she`s mature, which I think Wonder Woman has to be, because it`s a very complex character. You know, the whole Wonder Woman concept is `What if women were more powerful than men`," he said.
Nicolas also wants Hendricks for the movie because he believes the curvy model has the perfect physical attributes to wear the character`s skimpy outfit.
"And I certainly can`t come up with a more ideal choice to play that, both consciously because she`s very smart but also because of her sensibility and her physicality... so for me, she`s the perfect choice because she has so much sensibility and sexuality, but it`s true sexuality. And she has a body to die for. I certainly don`t know anybody of both sexes who doesn`t find her extremely attractive," he added.
Hendricks has previously revealed she would jump at the chance to take part.
