The little boy who plays Don and Betty Draper’s son on “Mad Men” doesn't seem to be a big fan of onscreen mom January Jones, reports TV Guide.
Jared Gilmore, the show’s third Bobby Draper, is leaving the AMC hit series for ABC's upcoming fairy-tale drama “Once Upon a Time.” But before he goes, Gilmore wants to warn his tiny successor about his former TV mom.
"Be careful around January [Jones]. She's not as approachable as the others,” the 11-year-old cautions. “She's really serious about what she does. Everyone else is so nice."
When January Jones announced in April that she was expecting her first child, there was at least one person who wasn’t that surprised: “Mad Men” executive producer Matt Weiner.
The showrunner, who Jones has said created the part of Betty Draper especially for her, told E! that the 33-year-old actress has always wanted to be a mom.
"She has wanted this very badly," Weiner said. "She's got a big heart and she's been talking about having children since I met her, which is not always common with actresses.”
She wears a daring purple dress with a plunging neckline on the May cover of Marie Claire U.K., and inside the magazine, January Jones really gets it all off her chest. In a refreshingly candid interview, the blonde beauty lets loose on jealous classmates, her "Mad Men" money, and ex-boyfriend Ashton Kutcher.
For starters, the actress insists she didn't pursue a modeling career to get back at all those girls in high school who were mean to her because they thought she wasn't pretty.
"Where are you getting this s-?" she asks the writer. "It sounds like something I might have said when I was, like, 15. The bitches in high school were bitches because I was pretty."

Thursday, the Clinton Global Initiative honored Brad Pitt for helping to rebuild hurricane-ravaged New Orleans. So far, Pitt's "Make It Right" project has completed 13 eco-friendly single-family houses in the city's Ninth Ward, all with such features as "green roofs" which dramatically reduce heating and cooling costs. Pitt says the project's goal is to build 150 such houses.
Meanwhile, the Hollywood trade paper Variety hosted a "Power of Women" luncheon in Beverly Hills, and I don't know whether it was a coincidence, or they were just sucking up to you Find The Good readers, but it seemed everyone wanted to discuss their charitable work:
Because reading about all of these worthy causes is great, but at some point, you do want to get involved, right?
