It's hard to believe it, but we no longer will be seeing Don Draper, Roger Sterling, Peggy Olsen and the gang every Sunday night for another episode of the hit AMC drama Mad Men. Now that the show has come to a close, its stars are trying to shake off their on-screen personas as they try to tackle other roles. For January Jones, who played the often-times icy Betty Draper Francis, she says the task won't be easy.
In a new interview with the Huffington Post on Monday, Jones said that while playing Betty is a role that is going to always stay close to her heart, it hasn't been easy finding different roles without being typecast.
She says of her post-Mad Men career, "I tried to do all kinds of different things and not put myself in a place where I'm going to be typecast."
Meanwhile, Jones has also admitted that she has a thick skin, thanks to her years in the modeling world.
According to the Belfast Telegraph last month, the blonde beauty says that being a model was a "cliché" start to her career, but also the best move she's ever made in her life.
She said, "You develop a thick skin because you learn rejection seven or eight times a day. I knew I didn't want to be a model. People in the fashion industry are brutal. But what it did give me was a knowledge of my own body, of how to move in a way that works, of things that look good on me."
Even though she's one of the most stylish celebrities in the entertainment world, Jones admits that she gets her best style advice from one of her closest Hollywood friends.
She added, "[I look to my] close friend Diane Kruger for inspiration. She always looks fantastic so I watch what she wears. We like to go to shows or look online and then fight each other for the best [pieces]."
