'Mad Men' star Christina Hendricks says she faced rejection a million times before landing in a role on the television series.

The 37-year-old actress played an alluring secretary Joan Harris on the show in 2007, reported the Huffington Post. "I've been to a million auditions and have been rejected a million times, so it's something that I'm used to.

"You're either right for it or you're not right for it. You could leave thinking you had the best audition in the world and they say you don't look like the person I imagined. It has nothing to do with your talent.
