From TV to the movies, Christina Hendricks has been keeping busy with her work in two new movies, "Drive," and "I Don't Know How She Does It."

"It's a very busy week but it's all exciting," said Hendricks.

Hendricks kicked off her busy week attending the premiere of "I Don't Know How She Does It," in New York on Monday.

She will also be walking the red carpet over the weekend at the Nokia Theater for the Primetime Emmy Awards. It's her second time as a nominee. She is up for best supporting actress for her work in "Mad Men." On Sunday, she's bringing a very special guest.

"I'm taking two dates, if you will. I'm taking David from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He's from Texas and his wish is to attend the Emmys so I'm very, very honored to fulfill his wish," Hendricks said.

In her jump to the big screen, Hendricks stars opposite Sarah Jessica Parker as women who are doing their best to balance their busy lives, while everyone wonders "I Don't Know How She Does It."

"All the characters in this movie are people who are trying to juggle all the different areas of their lives - being a mother, being a career woman, being a friend, being a wife. I liked that it spoke to a lot of people," said Hendricks.

"I think you can try, and I think you should try, and I think you should give yourself a break when things don't work out exactly perfect," she said.

Hendricks also co-stars in the gritty independent thriller, "Drive" opposite Ryan Gosling.

"The character in 'Drive' and the character in 'I Don't Know How She Does It' are worlds apart," Hendricks described. "I think people are going to be surprised and excited by it. I think it's a really unusual film."

"I Don't Know How She Does It" open Friday.
