'Weekend Drive': Christina Hendricks

HENDRICKS: I wept. I wept like a little baby. Everyone was in on it. My best friend asked me to come and baby-sit for her all day to get me out of the house. While I was there, I decided to do some gardening at her house. I was covered in mud and I came home and he had filled the house with flowers and purchased a chandelier for me that I'd wanted for probably 15 years. He was standing under it in a suit, just looking so dashing. And the second I walked in, I just started crying. After the whole thing happened, I realized I was covered in mud. Twenty minutes later, I said, "Can I call my mom? I want to tell my mom that we got engaged." He said, "Well, just give it a second." Three minutes later, the front doorbell rang and it was my mom and all my best friends and some of the people from "Mad Men." Everyone had champagne, everyone came in to celebrate.

WEIR: So, does any part of losing your anonymity trouble you?

HENDRICKS: Sure, absolutely. All of a sudden, people are coming up and taking pictures and stuff. And you're like, "Oh, God, it's terrible. This is awful." We were just at the airport in Los Angeles and someone took a picture of us -- it's the first time anything like that has happened, and we were sort of confused. I can't imagine what it must be like to be Jennifer Aniston. I feel sorry for her. What's happening to me is just exciting. What happens to her is a whole different level, you know.

WEIR: What is your advice for those little 11-year-old girls out there?

HENDRICKS: If you love something, keep doing it. That's what I did. I just kept doing what I love.

WEIR: Thanks for showing me around your town.

HENDRICKS: It was a pleasure.

We asked Christina to give us her ideal playlist for a road trip.
