January Jones made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night (January 9) and dished about her low-key birthday celebration!

“Usually, I do a party and I was gonna do a party. A Bingo-themed party. And then, I felt like it was a lot of work and it makes me sound really old,” the (newly) 42-year-old actress expressed to Jimmy.

January then talked about her newest acting project being Netflix‘s Spinning Out — a show about competitive figure skating.

As Jones described her stage mom-like character, “I have two daughters who are now competitive figure skaters, and I’m their mom. And I’m like a skating mom, like I’m very competitive for them and I want them to live out my dreams that I didn’t get to.”

“She’s also very mentally unstable. This is a theme in my career,” January joked, teasing about her iconic Mad Men character, Betty Draper.

Adam Sandler Tells 'Kimmel' That 'Uncut Gems' Is 'Different Style of Movie' for Him

Adam Sandler stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night (December 17) and dished about his acclaimed new film Uncut Gems not being part of his usual comedy genre.

“I understand,” the 53-year-old actor responded to Jimmy when asked about the reviews for Uncut Gems, which have been very positive. “It’s a different style of movie. My comedies are light and fun and I love doing ‘em and I get a different kind of compliment to those. I hear ‘Man, I was stoned the other night when I saw your movie,’ you know, and that’s fine. But this is a different style of movie with the Safdie brothers.”

Adam then told the story about how he got involved with the Safdie brothers to do the film: “They wrote it like 10 years ago and I think I was busy and they sent a script in…,” he said. “I don’t know what happened but 10 years goes by and I did [The Meyerowitz Stories] and I’m going over to Cannes and when I’m going over there, my agents kept saying ‘The Safdie brothers wanna talk to you.’ I said ‘Who are the Safdie brothers?’ And they’re like ‘They’re young and hip’ and I thought they were just, like, skateboarders so I was like ‘What do I wanna meet the Safdie brothers for?’ and then I saw Good Time. These guys are incredible.”

Later during his interview, Adam was joined by his co-star Kevin Garnett. “Can you really mess up playing yourself?” Garnett joked. “I’m glad I didn’t talk to you before I did this.”

Paul Walter Hauser Got 'Richard Jewell's Mother Approval!

Paul Walter Hauser stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night (Deember 12) and dished about playing Richard Jewell in Clint Eastwood‘s new movie.

The film follows American security guard, Richard Jewell, who heroically saves thousands of lives from an exploding bomb at the 1996 Olympics, but is unjustly vilified by journalists and the press who falsely report that he was a terrorist.

The 33-year-old actor told Jimmy that he got approval from Richard’s real-life mother Barbara “Bobi” Jewell for the role.

“She goes, ‘you look just like Richard, you look just like my son.’ She says, ‘you’re doing things like him that you don’t even know that you’re doing that are like him’,” Paul expressed. “It felt like the ultimate sign off to get her approval. There were just some inherent stuff.”

Paul Walter Hauser also talked about getting his start in acting, and reveals what it was like working with Clint Eastwood.
