'Lost' Creator Damon Lindelof Rips January Jones' Performance in 'X-Men: First Class'

January Jones and Damon Lindelof'Lost' co-creator Damon Lindelof wasn't a fan of 'Mad Men' star January Jones' performance in 'X-Men: First Class' and let all 129,000 of his Twitter followers know about it.

After watching last week's No.1 movie at the Box Office, Lindelof took to his Twitter page to praise the movie and some of the performances, "Dug FIRST CLASS though, especially Fassbender, McAvoy and the best deployment of the PG-13 single-use eff-bomb I have ever seen."

However, he was less than kind to Jones' acting skills.

In the movie, Jones plays the character of 'Emma Frost', and Lindelof talked about Frost's powers in the movie, or lack thereof.

Lindelof tweeted this message, "Emma Frost's THREE mutant powers: Telepathy, Transformation to Solid Diamond and last but not least, Sucking at Acting."

Lindelof appeared to regret the Tweet the next morning, writing: "I need to stop saying mean things on Twitter."

He continued: "Yoda was not bullshitting about the dark side. Now that I've tasted its black nectar, I can't imagine ever going back. "

He capped his regret-fest with: "I am only slightly less disgusted with the amount of play my X-Men comment got than I am with myself for making it in the first place."

Despite the backtracking, we probably won't be seeing Jones acting in any of Lindelof's shows anytime soon.

Recently, 'The Hangover Part II' star Zach Galifianakis also dissed the pregnant 'Mad Men' actress.

In an interview, Galifianakis was made aware that Jones named him as the funniest man she'd ever met, he was quick to call out the actress on what sounded, to us, like a compliment.

But Galifianakis remembered a more than "rude" mama-to-be when he was summoned to her table at an event.

"I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, 'I think it's time for you to leave now,'" Galifianakis recalls. "So I say, 'January, you are an actress in a show and everybody's going to forget about you in a few years, so f**king be nice,' and I got up and left."
