January Jones said she “loved” the Fat Betty direction of “Mad Men” Season 5.
“I didn’t want to try to hide it. I thought it would become comical and weird,” Jones said. “I also didn’t want to have the character become pregnant because it just wouldn’t make sense — she had just had one. And I thought it would be something fun, not realizing it was going to be a pain … It was definitely difficult, but I love what [Matt Weiner] did with the character’s story. Everyone likes a challenge.”
