January Jones to Ashton Kutcher: Screw You!

January Jones to Ashton Kutcher: Screw You!

You may find it hard to believe that ten years ago, Mad Men hottie January Jones dated Ashton Kutcher, who’s currently married to Demi Moore.

Apparently Ashton discouraged January from pursuing her acting career. “The guy I was dating when I first got to L.A. was not supportive of my acting,” January tells GQ. “He was like, I don’t think you’re going to be good at this. So”f*** you! He only has nice things to say now”if anything, I should thank him. Because the minute you tell me I can’t do something, that’s when I’m most motivated.”

Well just look at her now, Ashton. She’s the most complex, mysterious woman on television today!

January also dated pop balladeer Josh Groban for about six years before breaking up this past spring. Currently, January is dating an Oregon-based lawyer she’s known for eight years. (“What I want is James Brolin in Amityville Horror, minus the horror. A guy with a beard who can swing an ax.”)

Check out January in the November 2009 issue of GQ!

    Is this Jared writing?

  • Hmmm

    I watch MAD MEN, like her as Betty in the show. And I say go girl, dont let any MAN stop you from pursuing your dreams!!!!

  • cvb

    Kutcher is a wolking crap.

  • salma

    She’s lovely. I think she’s a much better actor than Ashton though he is funny.

  • dundies

    LOL boys

  • Freddie

    Wasn’t it Ryan Reynolds in Amytiville Horror?

  • Shari Brock

    Good for her! Someone once said that the best revenge is to be successful. Glad to see that it worked out in her case!

  • ehnso


    not in the original version.

  • lolo

    i even didnt know that ashton kutcher dated january jones in the past…
    for me he was always with demi moore lol

  • coco

    Dude where’s my career?

  • lexy

    I can’t imagine AK said that to her. He just seems to positive and up beat. He’s also worked with a lot of untalented people and people who have said that about him so I can’t imagine some guy from Iowa telling her she didn’t have a chance. Besides, if her “boyfriend” wanted to get laid would he really have told her that??
    I remember when AK dated Britney Murphy. Was this chick a celebrity before MM?

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    doesn’t look like jared’s writing. LOL.. kutcher’s one of the biggest douchebags alive. boo hoo.

  • Nora

    She dated Groban for 3 years, then Tommy Alastra for 3 years, until last spring. Do you people ever check anything out before putting it out there as news??

  • Annette


    Glad someone else pointed that out

  • coco

    her breasts look different here

  • Rhonda

    her taste in men seems to be improving!

  • Halli

    Ashton Kitcher is a has-been who has been relegated to the Twitter universe. Meanwhile Januray was nominated for a Golden Globe last year so eat it.

    Also, must suck for him to have Beautiful Life cancelled after one episode! Karma karma karma

  • jesse

    I guess Ashton knows bad acting! lol

  • Emma

    Um, January – you are lucky to have gotten rid of the human baggage that is Mr. Demi Moore. What the guy has ever accomplished to deserve the amount of attention he gets is literally beyond comprehension.

  • Two

    Right, #12. Also, while January Jones did some things like The Three Brurials of Melquiades Estrada with Tommy Lee Jones, it was Mad Men that made her popular.

    Kutcher isn’t a has-been and it was canceled after TWO episodes not one, #18.

  • wendy

    Well i am glad she didnt name him though, at least she kept it classy. And to the first comment, you either need to get your eyes fixed or simply get a thing called taste, because she is one of the most stunning women in Hollywood at the moment. Watch any episode of Mad Men, and then have the nerve to call her that!!!

    Some of you forget that pictures dont always do justice to some people, so judging a person only based on photos makes you a douchebag in my book!!

  • Chef de Cuisine

    @Annette: Ditto.

  • lexy

    Ashton was executive producer of that show he wasn’t the star. His movies do well and he’s far from a has been.

  • the_boyfriend

    i’ve never liked him and now i know why.
    she can act circles around him.

  • hmm

    Asshat Kutcher was probably jealous of her acting skills. he’s also trying to further destroy Demi Moore’s career by casting her in the Melrose place redux. He also used women to further his career like Brad Pitt.

  • carrie

    @Freddie: she talked on the original(older) movie!


    Ashton is a male model who CANNOT ACT. He seems nice. He seems tobe a good husband and a good person. But, an actor? NO!!!!

    CAN anyone name one thing he has ever ACTED in?

    Not walked on set and read lines, ACTED?

  • reban

    So sad that just ten years ago women had curves.

  • Nay

    Who is she? Ugh, another berk I’m guessing.

  • jen

    i think ashton had a point. this woman is a bad actress, annoying and ugtastic.

  • AreYouKiddingMe

    I don’t think Ashton said it. It could have been any ex. I smell a recantation coming soon.

  • Marieme

    What a deek he was. Or still is.

  • hanna

    Why would Ashton say that to her? It’s not like he’s the world’s best actor himself.

    Those GQ photos are hot!

  • jill

    He can act. He did Butterfly Effect and multiple seasons of the 70′s show.

    They were both really young when they dated. He was a model too, then a brand new actor. Men aren’t always sensitive and supportive when they’re young, but from what he’s said he was a jerk to her.

    I bet she just meant for it to be a random story, not to badmouth Ashton.

  • **Jamie**


    She could have been referring to any of the guys she dated.

  • Anna

    Screw Ashton he has no talent. I like January but when you compare these pics to recent pics can anyone say NOSE JOB?!?!?!?!

  • ganymede30324

    Good for her that she didn’t listen to whoever told her that about her career! I like her as Betty Draper! I’m sure she wasn’t mature enough for Ashton.

  • lakers fan in boston

    lol ashton
    so far she seems to have the better career
    what’s your greatest accompishment?
    that 70s show??!!

  • ADDY

    I think January is a fine actress. Due the fact she is attractive many people cannot see past this and have referred to her as’wooden’ as an actress. When in fact Mad Men showcases a very nuanced performance from Miss Jones. January will not be the last soon to successful woman who does not get ‘support’ from her man when she needs it the most. You would think support is merely supposed to be a female trait the way most men folk seem unable to give it.

  • mike

    You guys are out of your mind. She is in totally over of her head with the role of Betty Draper. She cannot pull it off and it’s painful to watch.
