January Jones: Everybody Hates Me & My 'Mad Men' Character

January Jones heads to the gym on Thursday (January 19) in Los Angeles.

The 34-year-old actress recently chatted with E! Online about Mad Men fans who aren’t too fond of her character, Betty.

“I find it really interesting that people think that like in seasons 3 and 4, she’s become unlikable because she’s become more independent. Everybody liked Betty when she was like in a living hell in season one and two, and now they hate her,” January said.

“I think it’s funny that it carries over into my life, my actual life, when [showrunner] Matt [Weiner] writes a storyline that Betty’s unlikable, all of a sudden everybody hates me. I hope she gets a little more well received,” she added.

I have no idea why people hate her so much. When she was on Oprah, she seemed fine to me. And she seems to be an actress that marches to the beat of her own drum. She also called out Ashton Kutcher for being a douche to her when they first dated which also gives her a few more points in my book.

Well I’d rather see her than dull Hilary Duff.

are we ever going to know who the father is???

I’ve hated Betty since season 1 ! She is so cold, especially to her children. She scares the hell out of them! and she left Don for another man almost instantly even though she blamed Don for cheating on her!
There is nothing likable about this woman!

@ace11:
How is that relevant to anyone else besides her, her baby and the father?

# 9

No one really cares about her either way. But it’s funny that she thinks we do.

guys h8me @ 01/23/2012 at 1:50 pm

I dont know why

@ace11

how is it any of your business who the father of her child is?

@blossom: But you’re talking about the character she plays on television. Yes, Betty Draper is unlikable and childish and hits her children. Does that mean January does? No.

@Andrea Of course I’m only talking about Betty (it’s clear in my message). I do not know January Jones personally so I do not know if she’s likable or not!
I love the show on the other hand and cannot stand Betty.

Why would people dislike her? What did she do?? lol Itll be interesting to see where her character goes in the new season of Mad Men though

She’s such a cherry, smiley happy person isn’t she, January looks like she talks in rainbows and dances under the happy stars. Her baby’s daily life must be full of happiness, joy and warmth..NOT, she looks as cold as the month she is named after, what a constant sourpuss face in public. That poor baby, what a grouchy mama he has, hope he still learns to smile.

I dunno, I like January. She does seem to march to her own beat and she keeps her private life private for the most part. She probably isn’t smiling in these pictures because she’s one star who *didn’t* call the paps herself.

People don’t hate her because her character is unlikeable, they hate her cause SHE’s unlikeable, and she’s a horrible and stiff as an actress.

Why so much hate ? What has she done ? People WAKE UP, U are miserable writing that kind of things about her

to Nora

these people are angry because January won’t tell them the name of her baby’s father which for some reason they think they have a right to know.

I wouldn’t like to cross her irl but she just looks so fine as Betty. She’s got this special period look and as a single mother who dumped ASSton dumber-than-a-silicon-implant Kutcher, she deserves some points.

@Nora: That’s called criticism. She brought it up.

She’s a b**ch in real life is why ppl hate her. Hasn’t anyone on here heard of this before? She’s rude to everyone.

no, honey, people hate you because of you, not your character

I love january! :) i don’t understand why people hate her.

January: people don’t hate you, they’re jealous (yes!) because you look like a perfect Barbie that we can’t ever be, but most of us dream of be.
.
That’s only about the looks department, your interviews are very blah.

no i am pretty sure they hate you because you’re a sourly *****.

i don’t hate her, i just think that she’s bad at acting

@susan:
aaaahhhh…..but it IS relevant to us gossip hounds…isn’t that why we are all here?
