Christina Hendricks has injured herself by falling down stairs.

The 'Mad Men' star was wearing a onesie when she tripped and fell, leaving her bruised and embarrassed.

"I was walking down the stairs in pyjamas and I slipped," she said.

"I bounced down and had bruises from my bum down to my ankle. It was really painful and unattractive."

While Christina favours comfort when she's at home, she admitted to recently splashing out on an extravagant Alexander McQueen cape.

"I treated myself to an Alexander McQueen cape recently. I went into the shop intending to court a pair of pants but I walked out with something way more extravagant. I wear it pretty much every day."

The 37-year-old actress is famous for her red hair but when she started her career she was advised not to dye her naturally blonde locks.

"When I first started modelling I was blonde. Then I got a job and they wanted to do my hair bright red.

"I'd always wanted to, but the head of my agency was like, 'You look terrible, it's so ugly, you cannot have red hair'.

"I came back as a readhead and couldn't get my hair back to blonde for two days - in the meantime I had to audition.

"I booked two or three jobs, because were a lot fewer redheads than blondes, and I was like, this is working for me, I'm keeping this."
