“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 »
“The long distance kind of petered us out. When you date someone else who’s in the industry, someone has to make the sacrifices. And if no one’s willing to, then you just have to be friends.”
—January Jones is on the cover of the June issue of Allure, and inside the magazine talks about why her relationship with Jason Sudeikis didn’t work out. We say big boo to that. We were rooting for those two. [Allure]
Then again, January says dating someone out of the industry has complications, too. Her thought on that after the jump. Keep reading »
Opting to go it alone is a trend in Hollywood, as stars like January Jones, Sandra Bullock, Minnie Driver, Sheryl Crow and Padma Lakshmi have decided to forego the first comes marriage adage and start families on their own. Hats off to these women for forging their singular futures and having the guts to take matters into their own hands without a Prince Charming in the picture.
But do these Hollywood moms, who have millions of dollars, a full staff and unlimited time off make single motherhood look altogether too easy? Could they influence fans to make a similar decision without the resources to back it up? Read more… Keep reading »
In an obvious attempt to steal Kate and William‘s thunder — okay, not really — “Mad Men”‘s January Jones, 33, has announced that she’s expecting! “January Jones is happy to announce that she is expecting her first child this fall,” her rep told People. There’s no information on who the father might be and a source tells the mag, “She’s really looking forward to this new chapter in her life as a single mom.” Fingers crossed it’s not former paramour Jeremy Piven or, I dunno, Benicio del Toro, whose sperm has already impregnated one blonde (Kimberly Stewart) this month. Anyway, congrats to January on her happy news — can’t wait to see how this might impact Betty Draper… [People] Keep reading »
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 »
