Sally Draper Is Really Smart And Plays Golf

Kiernan Shipka, aka Sally Draper of “Mad Men,” is apparently really, really well spoken for a 10-year-old girl. When asked whether she would act like Sally if her parents were like Betty and Don, she said:

“I think Sally’s actually much better than I would be, given her situation. Sally is really, really reserved. Divorce can be terribly stressful and confusing. Add to that an emotionally unresponsive mother and a physically absent father, I think Sally’s actions are pretty tame. If I was experiencing Sally’s situation, I would be a complete terror of a kid.”

Holy vocabulary! Don’t believe she actually said that? We were doubtful until we saw this video of Kiernan at the Emmys in which she explains that she likes to be “very method” while on set. You should read the entire AMC interview, but we’ll leave you with one last awesome bit about her on-set relationship with the boy who plays Glen:

“… we don’t really talk about scripts. Just more ordinary stuff….The schools he’s going to, my school, golf. We both like to golf. I have played golf for a couple years.”

Golf, people. Sally Draper plays golf! [AMC]
