Taking time away from the set of her hit AMC series “Mad Men,” Christina Hendricks graced the cover of Health magazine’s May 2014 issue.

While donning a gorgeous floral print dress for the spread, the 38-year-old actress opened up about everything from having children to her career.

Highlights from Miss Hendricks’ interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Health!

On her future with kids:
“We got a puppy, and that’s my idea of starting a family. People say, ‘Oh, that’s practice for parenting,’ but if it’s practice for anything it’s to be a mom to another puppy. We’ve decided that we are not really interested in having children. It’s just very normal for people to say, ‘Well, when you guys have kids…’ and then when I say, ‘Actually, I don’t think we’re going to do that,’ people will say, ‘Oh you say that now…’ It doesn’t bother me, though. And, you know, there’s a small chance I could change my mind.”

On her career plans:
“I’ve never been that person who had a plan like “In five years, I’m going to do this.’ Things have shifted in ways that I would never have imagined. I never anticipated being a professional actor. I just assumed it would be in community theater – like after my job, I would go to rehearsal and be in a play.”

On her daily workouts:
“I would say my favorite workout is just the elliptical and doing some free weights. I’m trying to mix it up. I do Bar Method sometimes, but it’s really hard! [My husband and I] used to share a trainer. Now I’ll say something like, ‘OK, we need to do push-ups every day,’ and at any time in the day, I can make him get down and do them, or he can tell me to do them.”
