Quote of the Day: Stephen King Watches ‘Revenge’ Over ‘Mad Men’

Stephen King

January Jones: ‘Mad Men’ Was Tough When Pregnant

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Drama, Cable, Features,

January Jones as Betty Draper

January Jones found filming Mad Men tough when she was pregnant. The 35-year-old actress - who is mother to 18-month-old Xander, but refuses to name the father - had her baby bump disguised in a storyline which saw her character, Betty Francis, put on weight because she was unhappy, and the beauty says each day's shooting was hard.

"When we started filming, I was quite pregnant and had to come into work at 3am each day for six or seven hours of prosthetic make-up," she explained. January added she was "afraid" of the response to her changing appearance, but found the reaction by fans was even better than she imagined: "I was very afraid of how that first episode would look when it aired, but I loved the audience response to her. When she's bigger, viewers are more sympathetic to her."

The couple started dating after falling for each other on the set of advertising drama Mad Men last year when Alexis joined the cast as Beth Dawes for a short stint. "Vinnie basically fell in love with Alexis while she filmed a three-episode cameo. He was definitely smitten with her from the beginning," a source said.

When she was working on Mad Men, Alexis had nothing but praise for Vincent: "He's light and funny and has lots of energy on set. He keeps everybody energized as well."

Alexis was previously in a long-term relationship with her Gilmore Girls co-star Milo Ventimiglia from December 2002 to July 2006.

Mad Men

Folks in the legal department at Lionsgate Entertainment have their hands full with a new lawsuit against Mad Men.

Gita Hall May, who modeled in the 1950s and 1960s, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles yesterday against the production company for using an image of her photographed by Richard Avedon for Revlon without her permission. In the suit, she claims that she only released consent for use of the photo to Revlon back in the early 1960s, and did not agree “to allow, forty years later, her image to be cropped from the photo, in secret, and inserted as a key element in the title sequence of a cable television series, without her consent and for commercial purposes."

Christina Hendricks: ‘I Hate to Think of Mad Men End’

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Cable, Gossip,

Christina HendricksChristina Hendricks "hates" to think about Mad Men ending. The flame-haired actress - who plays Joan Holloway in the 60s-set TV show, which was recently renewed for a sixth season - claims the program has "completely changed" her career and she doubts she will ever find a job she loves as much.

"It's completely changed my career. Instead of people wondering who you are, you walk in and they say, 'I love your show.' It's a nice way to start an audition. I hate to think of it ever finishing. I have concerns about finding something I'm going to fall in love with as much."

However, Christina - who is married to actor Geoffrey Arend - is looking forward to other projects and spending some time with her husband: "I've got a couple of things lined up for the next break, and I hope to enjoy my home and husband."

Christina, 37, was "smitten" with Geoffrey when she first met him because of his sense of humor. "It just became very obvious to me, I was smitten. He makes me laugh and he's my best friend and I would always rather be with him than not, so those are pretty good indications."

January Jones: Being a Working Mother is Hard

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Celebrity Babies,

January Jones and her son XanderJanuary Jones admits being a working mother is "hard."

The Mad Men actress - who has not disclosed the father of her 10-month-old son Xander - felt "lucky" to be able to take her little boy to work with her, but she found it tough at times because her hours were so long.

"I had to go back to work when Xander was six or seven weeks old, but I'm lucky that I have a job that I can bring him with me. I was able to bring him to work and nurse, and I could see him when I missed him, which was often even though I was only feet away. Mad Men has such long hours, and then you go home and you don't sleep. So it was hard."

However, January thinks going to work made her a "better mother," and she doesn't think people should be judged harshly for returning to their careers while their children are young.
