Joan Holloway's Tips For Finding A Roommate On 'Mad Men': 'No Dull Men Tolerated' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Mad Men" actress Christina Hendricks turns 38 today, so we're paying tribute to her most famous creation: Joan Holloway. (Or is she still going with "Harris"?) Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce's head secretary-turned-partner is our favorite, always with a withering one-liner at the ready. Her reactions are also immensely GIF-able.

Here's one of our favorite clips of Joan, offering poor, misguided Peggy advice for finding a good roommate. Maybe we wouldn't dictate a potential housemate's size, but there's something to be said for not tolerating dull moments. Or dull men.

Agree or disagree?

Get to know the actress behind the character with this look at her off-screen style.
