Be Careful Around January Jones, Former Bobby Draper Warns Child Actors

by Chris Harnick, posted Aug 23rd 2011 11:30AM
January Jones, Jared GilmoreJanuary Jones has made a career out of playing some rather chilly characters -- Betty on 'Mad Men' and Emma Frost in 'X-Men: First Class' -- but does life imitate art? Well, maybe.

Jared Gilmore, who played the Emmy-nominated actress' son Bobby on 'Mad Men,' had some words of advice for the next young actor who takes his place.

"Be careful around January [Jones]," he told TV Guide Magazine. "She's not as approachable as the others. She's really serious about what she does. Everyone else is so nice."

Uh oh -- when a little boy is scared to talk to you, you might want to re-examine your public persona.

Gilmore dropped out of 'Mad Men' to play a big part in ABC's fairy tale drama 'Once Upon a Time.' In the new series, he plays Henry, son of Jennifer Morrison's Emma. It just so happens Emma is the daughter of Snow White and holds the key to saving the Enchanted Forest and its fairy tale inhabitants.

'Once Upon a Time' premieres Sun., Oct. 23 at 8PM.

The real shame here is this young boy is already being exposed to these "I'm better than everyone else" attitudes in his life. January Jones should and can be replaced by any number of female actresses who not only look like her , but could probably do as good if not better job in her part on the show. No one is irreplaceable. When someones ego gets out of control , it might be time to rethink contracts. If your casting dept can't take care of it , replace them too. 34,000,000 people on foodstamps , most looking for better jobs or a job period , just saying.

"Mad Men" will be back, but unfortunately, not until 2012. As much as I love the show, I'll probably be on to something new by then. An almost 2 year hiatus is about a year and a half too long!

I had to interview her, and to say she is an unpleasant person is an understatement!

This is a comment for a CHILD. Perhaps she is more "serious" because she is an adult who has a living to make. Really the fact that this is even news just shows how "afraid adults are of children" in our current society. This is reflected in schools across this nation. WAY out of control.

She was once a girlfriend to Josh Groban. They broke up. Josh seems so easy going. He is so talented, she is not.

I agree, she's a horrible actress who was very unconvincing in "Unknown" (her worst role in a good movie) and just Ok in "Mad Men." So how is it that she's so concentrated on her role on that show and doesn't even pull out an amazing performance out of it?

Her being unapproachable would have been excusable if her acting was as mesmerizing as some of the other talented actors on Mad Men. Since she's not even good, she just comes off as a vapid pretty face and nothing else.
