Why Is January Jones So Mean?
January Jones, Mad Men‘s weakest link, has become the ultimate grown-up version of the girl in high school everyone was afraid of. First there was that interview with Marie Claire UK, full of gems like “The bitches in high school were bitches because I was pretty,” and “When I talk about myself, half the time I’m lying.” She’s basically Regina George but on magazine covers. Now it turns out she was even mean to Zach Galifianakis! Why else would he “hate” to do a sex scene in a movie with her?
Galifianakis is understandably shy about performing sex scenes, but on top of that, January Jones was ice cold to him when they met. He told Shortlist, who had just informed him that Jones thinks he’s the “most naturally funny man she’d ever met”:
“If I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other. It was crazy. I was at a party – I’d never met her – and she was like, ‘Come sit down’. So I sit at her table, and [we] talk for ten minutes, and she goes, ‘I think it’s time for you to leave now’.
So I say, ‘January, you are an actress in a show and everybody’s going to forget about you in a few years, so fucking be nice’, and I got up and left. And she thinks that’s funny?”
Score one for Zach Galifianakis. Presumably, many actresses are equally as insufferable as Jones, but she allows herself to act like that in public; I shudder to think of how she might behave in her more unguarded moments. Looking forward to her appearance on “Between Two Ferns,” which I dearly hope will happen.
