“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 »
I lovvvvve a good blind item and this, while not-so-blind in my opinion, is a juicy one. Who knows if what it implies is true, but if it is, dayum. Ahem:
This married actor had a one-night stand with one of his exes, who is an actress in an acclaimed television show. She wound up pregnant. The actor’s wife found out about the baby, and, to no one’s surprise, went completely ballistic.
Both the actor and his wife tried every tactic (money, lawyers, threats to ruin her career) to convince the ex to terminate the pregnancy. Despite enormous pressure from all sides, the ex decided to keep the baby. The actor’s marriage is now on the rocks. We’re not sure how long everyone can remain tight-lipped about this one. It will be difficult to keep such a bombshell out of divorce proceedings, which will likely occur before the New Year. Keep reading »
Yes, yes, we know it’s just a TV show, but we love it! And since we have to wait another few months before it returns, we had to find something to occupy our time.

The birth certificate for January Jones’ newborn son has hit the interwebs, and despite every tabloid this side of Perez Hilton foaming at the mouth to know who his father is, his identity remains a mystery. January is the only parent listed on lil’ Xander Dane’s birthday certificate — and why shouldn’t it be? It sounds like January plans on raising her son solo and I’m sure she’ll do a kick ass job at it.
(Besides, if Jeremy Piven fathered my child following a regrettable one-night stand, I would want to keep it hush-hush too. I kid! Actually, TMZ says one of the people who is rumored to be Xander’s potential pops is some actor named Xander Berkeley, but I think that’s too obvious and is just designed to throw us off the scent off the real [completely unproven and unsubstantiated except by the voices in my head] dad, Michael Fassbender.)

“Be careful around January [Jones] … She’s not as approachable as the others. She’s really serious about what she does. Everyone else is so nice.”
—Jared Gilmore who plays Bobby Draper on “Mad Men” gives words of advice to his replacement. Yes, Jared is moving on to bigger and better gigs than being Betty Draper’s emotional punching bag. He landed a part on the new ABC drama “Once Upon A Time.” Diplomatically put, he seems to think January Jones is a bitch on set. This quote confirms my suspicion that she isn’t really acting the part of Betty. It just comes naturally to her. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
We know expectant mothers are proud of their little packages, but is donning a sheer top just TMI?
First Charlotte Gainsbourg wore a black see-through blouse over her baby bump in Cannes, and now January Jones has been spotted rocking the same look while walking her dog with a friend in L.A. Are sheer tops a new trend for mothers-to-be?
We think the “Mad Men” star looks kinda cool in hers. It’s an improvement over Charlotte’s attempt, so we’re excited to see how far this motherhood fad can go. And while we’ve never been pregnant ourselves, we can only imagine that it gets pretty hot carrying around the extra poundage. Sheer fabric probably gives mom a cool breeze, no?

Hollywood these days is all about positioning and spin, and—what can we say?— it’s made us more than a little jaded. In this new column, we will share some of our most out-there theories about what’s really going on in the celeb-u-verse. Now, keep in mind that none of this is based on fact or even on the testimony of anonymous sources. They are purely hunches, and we could be totally and completely wrong. That said, we would not be super surprised if, some day, it came out that a few of our theories were right.
Ever since January Jones announced her pregnancy in late-April, without naming the child’s father, the internet and gossip rags have been in a tizzy trying to figure out whose seed implanted itself in her fertile womb. No worries, Us Weekly, Perez Hilton, et. al., I’ve got it figured out. Keep reading »
“She has wanted this very badly. She’s got a big heart and she’s been talking about having children since I met her, which is not always common with actresses. She is going to be someone who is so devoted … I have to do something about [the pregnancy on 'Mad Men'] but I’m not going to tell. It could be laundry baskets or it could be a body double. There are a million things you can do.”
—Matthew Weiner, the dude behind “Mad Men,” talks about January Jones‘ pregnancy. Not only does he think she’ll be a stellar mom, but he says her pregnant belly won’t be hard to work around when they start filming the show. Wait, covering her tummy with laundry baskets? Come on, Matthew. Let’s have her be pregnant with Henry’s child! [E! Online] Keep reading »
The new clips released today from the upcoming “X-Men: First Class” prove two things: The movie will have some amazing action sequences … and we’ll be seeing a whole lot of January Jones’ killer body.
20th Century Fox is seriously amping up their promotion for the mutant movie — and released a whole bunch of clips and behind-the-scenes video showing January Jones, Kevin Bacon, Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the cast in action.
In the first clip, we see Sebastian Shaw (Bacon) and his Hellfire Club minions Azazel (Jason Flemyng) and Riptide (Alex Gonzalez) attack the hideout of the other mutants in an attempt to bring them to the dark side. Read more… Keep reading »
