John Slattery Defends January Jones Alleged Ice-Cold Divatude


So is she or isn’t she sweetness and light? Little Bobby Draper on Mad Men aka Jared Gilmore thinks January Jones — his TV Mom — totally isn’t. He recently told TV Guide, “She’s not as approachable as the others. She’s really serious about what she does. Everyone else is so nice.” The kid’s eleven! They normally don’t have any sort of filter at that age which means he probably meant what he said. Which, FYI, totally backs up Zach Galifianakis‘ claim that January is a meanie.

With all the reports pouring in about Ms Betty, her co-star’s done her a solid by leaping to her defense. Standing up for her, John Slattery has said of January, “Well, it’s an intimidating character. I mean, that’s the character. Betty Draper is an intimidating woman I suppose, if you were a 7-year-old boy [or] her so. No, she’s a sweetheart. We got lucky. We don’t have anybody like that. I have no doubts she’ll make a great mother.” Sounds sincere to us, but then again, she may have terrified him into saying that!
