Gita Hall May, a model and actress in the 1950s and 1960s, says “Mad Men” used her image in its title sequence without her permission, and now she’s suing Lionsgate. May, who was known as just Gita Hall when the photograph was taken by Richard Avedon more than 50 years ago, is now 79. She says she only consented to the photo being used in a Revlon ad, and accuses the show of secretly cropping her image from the ad and using it “for commercial purposes,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

It’s official! “Mad Men” season six is back on Sunday, April 7th at 9p.m, bitches! Here are some teaser promo pics to get us obsessing over possible story lines. I haven’t a clue about what will happen. But I can tell that Weight Watchers worked for Betty, that Sally has gone through puberty, that Don looks appropriately broody, and that Megan is experimenting with her personal style. More clues contained in the pics after the jump. Predictions? [ONTD] Keep reading »
Well, lookie here. “Mad Men”‘s next season is eons away, but at least a couple of the cast members — Jon Hamm as Don Draper and Jessica Pare as Megan Draper — are filming in Hawaii this week. So what can we infer from Don’s choice in beach reading? Nothing is done without purpose on “Mad Men,” so I’ve got to wonder what Don is thinking reading Dante’s Inferno.

Important business to attend to! We need to discuss this crazy picture of Jon Hamm’s balls. While out strolling this weekend with Jennifer Westfeldt, there were some very interesting pics snapped of his junk. Some featured his incredibly sizable shlong. Not that we’re complaining. There’s never any issue with a devastatingly handsome man being well-endowed. BUT. THE BALLS. Granted, we’ve seen balls of all shapes and sizes. Amelia had a brief fling with a guy with “grapefruit-sized balls” — “Like Christmas tree ornaments!” she emphasizes — and I once slept with a dude whose balls were the size of Lindor truffles. I swear. But nuts, regardless of size or shape, are smushy. Sorry, but something about these moose knuckles just don’t look right to us. After the jump, some theories about what might have been going on Jon’s pants. Keep reading »
I know Elisabeth Moss is best known as Peggy on “Mad Men,” but to me, she will always be the woman with the soft voice and the headache in that Excedrin commercial. Just thinking about that commercial gives me a friggin’ explosive migraine. Anyway! Moss has to be kind of dowdy to play Peggy, so I’m stoked that in her real life she’s decided to take the hair bull by the tawny tendrils of the hair horns and go blonde! And short! I think it looks great. What say you?
I was already kind of obsessed with Jessica Paré, who plays Megan Draper on “Mad Men,” especially after she did that little French song-and-dance number at the beginning of last season, but now I’m officially smitten. The actress sang with The Jesus and Mary Chain at a handful of gigs this past week, doing a pretty damn good job on their songs “Just Like Honey” (above) and “Sometimes Always” (after the jump). Maybe Megan should embark on a singing career instead? [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
Oh, let me count all the ways I hate Kiernan Shipka. (And by hate I mean love.) She has a sense of humor. She’s got badass Chanel shoes. She wears capes. Her hair braid is freaking adorable. She makes her own clothes. She loves Helena Bonham Carter’s style. And she got to keep the wardrobe department’s backup pair of white go-go boots from that episode where Sally Draper bought some very ’60s shoes, because, duh, every 12-year-old needs a pair of white go-go boots. Oh God and she’s on Twitter at @KiernanShipka. BRB, begging her to be my little sister. [YouTube]
Last night, the 2nd annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards were held. The big winners were … well, there were a lot of winners. But Christina Hendricks and Jon Hamm were honored for their work on “Mad Men,” Tina Fey won for “30 Rock,” and even Danny Devito took home a prize (the “Television Icon Award,” natch).
But what were they wearing? Click through to find out.
Art may be imitating life on the set of “Mad Men.” According to Star magazine, January Jones has an issue with Jessica Pare. “January is furious because she pretty much had no story line this season, not to mention that she had to wear a fat suit!” a source told Star. “Meanwhile, Jessica is an overnight sensation. … January is so completely jealous that she has been treating Jessica like complete crap.” If this is indeed true (and I have no trouble imagining it could be), it explains why they only had one scene together this season. No wonder it was so uncomfortable to watch — it was real. Well … maybe. [Celebitchy]
