January Jones is currently at Sundance to promote her new movie ‘Sweetwater’, with co-star Jason Isaac and boyfriend/director Logan Miller.
In an interview with MTV, Jones explains why she decided to racy scenes in ‘Sweetwater’, saying, “Well you know, it’s interesting, I always said that professionally, I was going to choose not to do that. But weirdly, as I got older, it didn’t become… it became sort of a non-issue. I don’t know, I don’t know, it didn’t really bother me. I mean, it’s kind of awkward on set, with so many people around you when you’re very vulnerable.”
January also spoke about her ‘Sweetwater’ character to EW, saying, “She reminded me of Clint Eastwood in Pale Rider, kind of dark and mean. She has a stalking, predator type quality that I’d only really seen in male roles, and I tried to summon that up when I was playing her.” She also talks about meeting Jason Isaacs [best known for playing Lucius Malfoy on the Harry Potter films] on the set, saying, “When I first met [Isaacs] off screen, he’s super charming and a very handsome man with very blue eyes. But there were moments in the film when he needed to frighten me, and he did a good job. There wasn’t a lot of acting involved.”
Although January is best known for playing the icy Mrs. Draper on ‘Mad Men’, she is also starting to branch out in her film career and will next be seen in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’.
