I’ve been saying it for years; January Jones is an ice queen. And now people who work with her are confirming it. Actually an 11 year old is confirming it, but somehow this 11 year old knows how to put big words into sentences.
Jared Gilmore, who played Don and Betty Draper’s son on "Mad Men", has left the show to work on the ABC show “Once Upon a Time,” and is having no problem speaking out about January Jones’s icy behavior.
When TV guide asked Gilmore to give advice to the actor who is to replace him, he warned, “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.”
Dayumm. From an 11 year-old? When a little kid realizes you are stone-cold, that’s bad. Most 11 year olds are like “I don’t like broccoli” and “How many more days until Christmas?” This is one self-aware little kid.
This isn’t the first person to hate on January Jones. When Jones named comedian Zach Galifianakis as one of the funniest men in Hollywood, Zach commented on the statement by saying, “That’s really funny because, if I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other. “
January Jones being rude?! You don’t say!
Zach goes on to describe how he was at a party when Jones, whom he had never met, invited him to go sit with her at a table and after 10 minutes she said, “I think it’s time for you to leave now.” So Zach tells her, “January, you are an actress in a show and everybody’s going to forget about you in a few years, so f-cking be nice.”
I’m doing victory laps around my apartment and chanting “Zach! Zach! Zach!”
Since we’re bashing Jones right now, let’s just keep rolling with it. Earlier this summer, Jones played Emma Frost in “X-Men: First Class” (her character’s last name is Frost… type casting anyone?) Anyways, after Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof saw the film he slammed her performance by tweeting, “Emma Frosts’s THREE mutant powers. Telepathy, Transformation to Solid Diamond and last but not least, Sucking at Acting.”
Hundreds of people retweeted this message afterwards, and he’s not even that famous. I guess anti-Jones sentiments just foster a sense of community amongst strangers.
In other news, Jones is still pregnant and we still don’t know who the baby daddy is. Two guesses, it’s probably NOT Zach Galifianakis or Damon Lindelof.
