Our little town made the news this week... in London!
Mad Men star January Jones (Betty Draper) was photographed by the Daily Mail, one of Britain's largest papers. She was doing something here character on the show would have seen a staple of life: grocery shopping.
Miss Jones was dressed like any other “Felizian,” jeans, a loose white blouse and sunglasses. She looked beautiful and elegant, but, of course, even a television start doesn't go to the grocery store in a ballgown.
“I wouldn't know how to cope,” she told the Daily Mail, when asked about how she would handle having the life of her alter-ego Betty Draper.
Jones plays the now exwife of the show's star Don Draper (Jon Hamm) on the AMC hit series. Her character is an almost stereotypical 1960's housewife, dedicated to raising her children and serving her husband. Jones plays the character with more complexity as it is apparent that Betty Draper has more energy than that, but doesn't appear to have a place to put it.
