“There was a scene in ‘Mad Men’ early on where there’s a picnic and everyone throws their garbage out. I was literally sick to my stomach,” said Hendricks, a six-time Emmy-nominated actress, about the AMC show. “It was instilled in me at such a young age never ever to litter in your life that it was like watching a horror movie for me.”
