Los Angeles: Actress Christina Hendricks, who is seen as Joan Harris on the hit TV series “Mad Men”, is grateful to the show for improving her life in “every single way”. “My life has pretty much changed in every single way. Except for my friends and my family,” she said.

Hendricks said one of the biggest changes she saw after appearing on the show was accolades from world leaders fellow actors. “There are so many people that we’ve gotten to meet that I’ve admired for so long. Like the President or Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep. They come up and say, ‘I love the show,’and you’re just sort of gobsmacked,” said Hendricks, 39. “(I was) coming out of a bathroom and Julianne Moore said, ‘You’re wonderful on the show,'” Hendricks remembers. “I respect her more than almost any actress in the world.”

The actress said she experiences an increase in self-confidence because of the popularity of her character and the show. “When I walk into a room to audition, they’re not shuffling through head shots while I’m acting trying to figure out who the hell I am!. You walk in with a bit more confidence because you don’t have to prove yourself so much.”
