Oh yes… Jared Gilmore, who played January’s kid, Bobby, in the show, recently had some less-than-flattering words for the mama-to-be. The 11-year-old said:
“Be careful around January. She’s not as approachable as the others. She’s really serious about what she does. Everyone else is so nice.”
D’oh. Leave it to the brutal honesty of kids.
However, Mad Men co-star John Slattery, who knows how to play the publicity game, told the media that Jared simply must have felt intimidated by January’s on-screen persona. He tells E! News:
“She’s a sweetheart. We got lucky. We don’t have anybody like that (unapproachable). It’s an intimidating character. I mean, that’s the character. Betty Draper is an intimidating woman, I suppose, if you were a seven-year-old boy (or) her son.”
Well, hopefully, practicing the downward dog helped January release that stick up her — um, I mean, helped released her STRESS. Her stress. From the pregnancy. Of course.
