Christina Hendricks' Christmas tradition is destined for raunchy jokes. Chelsea Handler called Angelina the c-word. Michelle Williams gained 15 pounds for a role, and reveals her un-diet secrets. (Ice cream.) Monday gossip slips a sable under the tree.

Christina Hendricks, a preternaturally beautiful woman destined to sing-whisper "Santa Baby" at least once this month, specializes in yuletide double entendre: "My family always does a banana with your name on it in your stocking. You carve [the name] in really lightly with a pencil, and a couple hours later it's nice and black. It sounds so gross but I promise it's really cute!" I have a feeling her goofy dad is behind this. In other news, here's a picture of Christina cradling a puppy against her breast. [People, top image via Bauer-Griffin, puppy boob via Getty]
