Flanagan Gets Confidence Boost From Playboy Shoot

MAD MEN star CRISTA FLANAGAN got a boost of confidence after baring all for her new Playboy magazine photoshoot - because it was one of the few times she felt "attractive" as an actress.
The 34 year old, who plays secretary Lois Sadler on the hit show, has peeled off for a spread in the August (10) issue of the men's magazine.
And Flanagan, who previously enjoyed quirky roles on U.S. sketch comedy series MADtv and hit show Curb Your Enthusiasm, admits she relished the photoshoot - because she never gets to play pretty on screen.
She tells the New York Daily News, "I'm a character actress. The parts I play, I'm usually a crazy heroin addict or a lunch lady. Nobody's ever asked me to take off my clothes, or even kiss somebody.
"I guess I haven't been seen as a sexy person, and sometimes not even as an attractive person.
"I have to say, just for myself to go to a job and feel pretty, that was kind of cool."
