Mad Men star January Jones has admitted that she reacted badly to seeing herself in a fat suit.
The actress had to wear a rather heavy fat suit to simulate weight gain for the fifth season of the AMC drama, Mad Men.
"I paused [the show] and went screaming into the other room," January told The Hollywood Reporter. "[But then] I got used to it."
She went on to praise the 'fat Betty' storyline, insisting that it was the best way to deal with her real-life pregnancy: "I didn't want to try to hide [the pregnancy] - I thought it would become comical and weird," she explained.
"And I also didn't want to have the character become pregnant because it just wouldn't make sense. It was definitely difficult, but I love what [creator Matthew Weiner] did with the character's story."
January will submit herself as a supporting rather than leading actress for this year's Emmy Awards, reflecting Betty's reduced role in the latest season.
January has recently been discussing what it's like being a working Mum in her industry, telling US Weekly: "I was back when the baby was only six or seven weeks old, so it was difficult. It was difficult to be a working mum and just juggling all of that." January then went on to admit that everybody involved with Mad Men made things very easy for her.
"They made it baby friendly for me, because I'm the first female on set to have a baby so I got to bring him. He had his own room and I was able to work around it because I was nursing."
Mad Men airs on Tuesday nights at 9pm on Sky Atlantic. It airs in the US on Sundays on AMC.
