January Jones is known for playing the part of the the attractive, strong-willed Betty Francis on the television series "Mad Men" but she is currently attracting the attention of the media as a 'proponent' of placenta eating, a custom that has become very popular in Europe. The practice is currently under fire from the UK Food Standards Agency and could lead to making the processing of the placenta by companies an illegal endeavour that can only be done by the women themselves.
Large numbers of women in the UK believe in eating their placenta, an "iron-rich meat" as way to fight off post-natal depression, increase milk production and speed up postpartum recovery and in an effort to bring attention to the practice proponents of the custom have pointed to the fact that some celebrities such as January Jones eat their placentas which she does through placenta capsules made from her own placenta.
This is not the only reason for the actress being in the media spotlight. The actress has recently completed filming the final season of "Mad Men" in which she plays the beautiful but ice-cold Betty Draper Francis and now fans and media observers have become very intrigued about her next role.
The stunning blonde with outstanding dramatic range will next be seen opposite Ethan Hawke and Zoe Kravitz in the thriller, "Good Kill", a movie about a family man who wrestles with his conscience when her begins to feel uncomfortable about his job as a drone pilot.
January Jones is an actress whose name and talent bring huge attention to a cause or film and illustrates why she is in such demand with filmmakers.
