The Mad Men actress, who plays sexpot Joan Harris on the AMC drama - told Assignment X that having her looks scrutinised can be both flattering and exhausting.
"It's an incredible compliment, an extraordinary compliment," Hendricks admitted.
She continued: "People have been very, very, very nice. It also makes you sort of self-conscious and makes you think about [appearance] more than you normally would as far as going to events, choosing the right dress or whatever it is, but certainly it's been more complimentary than anything."
Hendricks previously revealed that she is not conscious of Joan's seductive strut while shooting Mad Men.
The AMC series recently wrapped up its fifth season.
