Christina Hendricks on ‘God’s Pocket’ and Remembering Philip Seymour Hoffman: Some scenes “still stand out in Technicolor”

Christina Hendricks might have been on a summer break from Mad Men when she shot the film God’s Pocket, but she didn’t take a break from one of her co-stars. John Slattery directed the Sundance-premiered indie film that also starred the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Hendricks reminisced with Vulture about the Oscar-winning actor and what her memories were of him.

She shared, “…my first meeting with him and my first rehearsal really stood out. I was so nervous and I realized so quickly how warm and giving and collaborative he was. And each scene was so special to me. There are some scenes that got edited out but they still stand out in Technicolor. I remember every moment. When you admire someone that much, you really savor every second.”

The film follows Hoffman’s character of a working class man dealing with his stepson’s death. He tries to please his wife while burying the body to make things right even though everything seems to be falling apart.

The quirky script wasn’t the only reason the 39-year-old AMC star signed on to do the project, she had the opportunity to work with Slattery on his directorial debut.

Hendricks explained why it was so special to her, “I love John and we have a great working relationship, and to have someone that you worked with for so long ask you to be in their first film is a huge compliment and a great honor. And also, in the scenario that is filled with experiences and challenges, to look across the room and see a familiar and calming face is fantastic. I think John did an extraordinary job on his first film, and it’s something we’re really, really proud of, and I think the film is really unique. And I hope people will go see it.”

God’s Pocket is currently playing in select theaters.
