Christina Hendricks is always asked whether her breasts are fake.

The 'Mad Men' star - who is known for her curvaceous figure - explained while her buxom bust has made it difficult to find clothes that fit well over the years, she is finally learning to "celebrate" what she was born with.

She said: "If there's anything to be learned from me it's that I'm learning to celebrate what I was born with, even though it's sometimes been inconvenient. Having larger breasts has made it harder for me to shop throughout the years, but I've learnt to love it.

"It's so bizarre that people are constantly asking if my breasts are real or fake. They're so obviously real that anyone who's ever seen or touched a breast would know."

However, the 36-year-old actress hasn't always been applauded for her looks, and was "bullied like crazy" for being "a goth with purple hair" during her school days.

Christina added to You magazine: "My school days were not a happy time, and I'm always amazed when people say they love their time in high school.

"I went to a very mean school and was bullied like crazy. I was a bit of a goth with purple hair and I was also part of the drama group, which was filled with actors and writers and wasn't really accepted by the rest of the school.

"There was a long corridor with lockers on either side and kids would sit on top of them and spit on you. It was like something out of 'Lord of the Flies', but if I learned anything it was to remain true to myself and not to conform for the sake of it."
