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."
Before hitting it big on "Mad Men," Jones dated Kutcher, who reportedly told her she'd never make it in Hollywood. She reportedly bristled when Marie Claire's writer mentioned his name.
"I don’t comment about that," she tells the magazine. "And I never commented about him."
Though she's since proven Kutcher wrong and landed on a successful series, Jones insists she isn't rolling in dough.
"Financially, we don’t get paid very much on the show and that’s well-documented," she says of "Mad Men." "On the other hand, when you do television you have a steady paycheck each week, so that’s nice."
