Christina Hendricks might not be the star of her new movie, “I Don’t Know How She Does It,” which comes out this Friday, but she sure knows how to steal the spotlight on the red carpet.

The “Mad Men” star displayed her assets in a curve-hugging dress at the movie’s New York City premiere on Monday night, outshining the real star of the movie, Sarah Jessica Parker.

Fans of Hendricks were probably not surprised with the actress’ dress choice for the night, but it sure attracted plenty of attention.

Also grabbing attention, were her remarks made to New York Magazine when asked if she wanted to play Wonder Woman in a film?

“Sure! I grew up on the TV show, and I had Wonder Woman Underoos, and my brother had a Wonder Woman doll — sorry, Aaron, you’re exposed,” she said. “And Nicolas said, when we were on set, ‘I want you to be Wonder Woman.’ And I think he is such an extraordinary and exceptional director, that if he asked me to do it, I would do it in a heartbeat.”

In the meantime she has her new movie to worry about.

“I Don’t Know How She Does It” also stars Pierce Brosnan, Greg Kinnear, Kelsey Grammer, and Seth Meyers.

Hendricks’ co-star, Parker, plays Kate Reddy, a finance executive who is a workaholic and brings home the big bucks for her husband and two kids. Her problem: she has way too much on her plate and struggles balancing work and her family life.
