January Jones On Playing Betty And How An Unsupportive Ex Helped Her Career

January Jones, aka “Mad Men”‘s Betty Draper, is on the cover of November’s GQ, and in the accompanying article, she eats queso and drinks beer while talking about the progression of her career. A boyfriend’s mom actually helped her learn manners and get rid of her Iowa accent, even after she and the dude broke up! Keep reading for January’s take on Betty and how another ex, who told her she wouldn’t make it in Hollywood, helped her get where she is today.On her fear of being typecast:
“I’d never really played a mom or a wife before, and all of a sudden I’m getting all these lonely mom and wife offers. I don’t want to get stuck.”

On how an ex helped her get ahead by not encouraging her:
“The guy I was dating when I first got to L.A. was not supportive of my acting. He was like, ‘I don’t think you’re going to be good at this.’ So—f**k you! He only has nice things to say now—if anything, I should thank him. Because the minute you tell me I can’t do something, that’s when I’m most motivated.” [Wonder if she’s talking about Ashton… — Editor]

On Betty Draper’s critics:
“I don’t have a lot in common with Betty but I’m very protective of her. I just feel like she’s trying really hard to make her life good, and make her marriage work, and it just seems hypocritical that when she slips up, people get mad. Because Don does it all the f**king time.”
