After making a splash with her breakthrough role in "American Wedding" (2003), actress January Jones quickly rose up the ranks to become a prominent screen presence in film and on television. Prior to her emergence, Jones started her career as a model, which naturally segued into acting. She made the rounds of independent film and guest spots on television, landing a small role in "All the Rage" (1999) while appearing in the pilot episode of "Get Real" (Fox, 1999-2000). After supporting roles in the features "Anger Management" (2001) and "Love Actually," she continued her rise with more notable features and bigger parts in such fare as "Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights" (2004) and "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada" (2005). But it was her regular series role as the long-suffering housewife Betty Draper on the critically acclaimed "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007-2015) that earned Jones serious consideration as an actress. Even as big screen efforts like "X-Men: First Class" (2011) increased her Hollywood stock, rumors about her personal life increasingly vied for page space whenever Jones was mentioned in the press, indicating, perhaps, that she had indeed finally achieved the level of stardom she had for so long pursued.

Bonus Trivia


Named by her parents after the character of January Wayne from Jacqueline Susann’s final novel, Once is Not Enough.


"I come from a family of very outspoken women. I can't imagine living in a time when you couldn’t express what you felt," she says. "That's why Betty does what she does. She's imploding to the point where she gets so frustrated that she does something wacky." - Jones on the role she plays in AMC's "Mad Men" to Oscar-winning actor Jack Nicholson in Interview magazine, August 2009


"The guy I was dating when I first got to L.A. was not supportive of my acting," she says. "He was like, I don't think you're going to be good at this." But that was for the best. "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." - Jones quoted to GQ magazine, November 2009


"January has an athletic intensity to her acting, a very instinctive kind of immediacy." - "Mad Men" creator, Matt Weiner quoted in GQ magazine, December 2009


On the night of June 10, 2010, Jones allegedly slammed into three parked cars and left the scene. LAPD said the actress was driving a Range Rover when she allegedly lost control, hit the other cars and caused some major damage. She was not cited or arrested, but her car was impounded and police launched an investigation. Later, Jones said several paparazzi were following her, so she lost control of her car and struck the vehicles.
