“Mad Men” Spoiler: Betty Draper Is “Fat” Now

Well, for those of us wondering how Matthew Weiner would work in and/or conceal January Jones’ pregnancy on the new season of “Mad Men,” last night we got our answer. Betty is fat now! I won’t reveal anything else about last night’s episode, but I will show you some photos. I am glad to see the makeup team from “Shallow Hal” has a new gig. One more, after the jump! Keep reading »

“Coincidentally, that kid doesn’t play Bobby Draper any more. Not because of what he said, but because … well, for other reasons. They’ve had about five Bobby Drapers and they can’t seem to find one who doesn’t look straight into the lens.”

–”Mad Men”‘s amazing John Slattery on the proliferation of Bobby Drapers on the show. The last one referred to January Jones as “unapproachable.” [Shortlist]

“You know, Sally shouldn’t be masturbating at other people’s houses or she’s going to get slapped.”

– January Jones defends Betty Draper — specifically her decision to smack tween daughter Sally after she was busted diddling herself at a neighbor’s house — in an interview with The Daily. You know, I could easily write, like, 1000 words on why this quote annoys me, especially because it pretty clearly reads like January is also speaking for herself and not just her ’60s-era housewife character, but I’ll keep it brief… Keep reading »

“I find it really interesting that people think that, like, in seasons three and four, she’s become unlikable because she’s become more independent. Everybody liked Betty when she was, like, in a living hell in season one and two, and now they hate her. … I think as an audience member you can empathize with her struggling to find happiness — I think it’s an ongoing process. … I think it’s funny that it carries over into my life, my actual life, when [show creator] Matt [Weiner] writes a storyline that Betty’s unlikable, all of a sudden, everybody hates me. I hope she gets a little more well received.”

– Well, well, well. January Jones is more self-aware than I expected. I assumed, like a lot of people, that she herself was as oblivious and filled with denial as her “Mad Men” character, Betty Draper Francis, whom everybody loves to hate. I have news for you, January: I don’t hate you. Keep reading »

Betty Draper Wasn’t In The Original “Mad Men” Pilot

January Jones opened up to W magazine and revealed that when it came to casting the role of secretary Peggy Olsen on “Mad Men,” she was thisclose to getting the part, but also that the role she eventually was cast for — Betty Draper, the icy blonde homemaker wife of anti-hero Don Draper — wasn’t even written into the pilot yet. Instead, series creator Matthew Weiner cast January Jones as Betty Draper and basically wrote the character around her.

Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. This is huge, people. Keep reading »

Sally Draper Would Like To Punch Betty In The Face, Too


Preternaturally intelligent Kiernan Shipka, who plays Sally Draper on our fave show ever, “Mad Men,” was interviewed by Entertainment Weekly about the show and her role on it. Kiernan was frank about her feelings about TV mom Betty Draper. “As much as I don’t like Betty’s character,” she said, “January‘s amazing and I love watching Betty. But I hate Betty as a person. I sometimes I just wanna punch her in the face.” Us too, Kiernan. Us too. [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »
