Christina Hendricks added, "I'm happy when people can feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin. I just live and let live. I'm happy for her."

Laverne Cox spoke more about meeting Caitlyn Jenner for the first time while on Monday's The Late Late Show.

"Diverse representations of trans people in the media, I think, are so important — when I think about transitioning in my 20s as a black trans woman who was working-class and struggling to make it in New York City, it's completely different than Caitlyn's very public experience," she said of Jenner, whom she met in person at an advance screening of I Am Cait.

"She is such a sweet woman, and she loves her family," Cox added.

Fellow guest Christina Hendricks added of Jenner's highly publicized transition, "I'm surprised it's such a surprise. To me, it's something that people do all the time now, and I'm happy when people can feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin. I just live and let live. I'm happy for her."
