Christina Hendricks says people call her when they need someone to play a catty role.

The Mad Men actress,who plays feisty Joan Holloway in the show, says casting directors mistake her as being like her bold, forthright character.

She added: "Joan is so poised and pulled together. I'm quite nerdy and goofy. I'm sort of notorious for making a corn salad and forgetting the corn. But I'm getting much better."
