Zach Galifianakis, the guy who does fake drugs on Bill Maher's show, was recently interviewed by Shortlist and related a brief encounter he had had with the Mad Men ice princess herself, January Jones, whose Betty Draper character may not be that much of a stretch after all. Upon being told that Jones had complimented him to the site, calling him the most "naturally funny" man she'd ever met, Galifianakis seemed confused, saying:
"That's really funny because, if I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other. It was crazy. I was at a party — I'd never met her — and she was like, 'Come sit down.' So I sit at her table and talk for ten minutes, and she goes, 'I think it's time for you to leave now.' So, I say, 'January, you are an actress in a show and everybody's going to forget about you in a few years, so fucking be nice' and I got up and left. And she thinks that's funny?"
So unless Galifianakis was conveniently leaving out a drunken come-on, it sounds like Ms. Jones skipped her manners course at finishing school. And don't expect a big, fat, Greek baby shower, because Galifianakis is definitely not the mystery man responsible for Jones' pregnancy. As far as doing a sex scene with Jones, Galifianakis says, "I wouldn't want to. I'd hate it. I've only had to do a few of those things where you have to kiss and stuff. It's so embarrassing." Hey Zach, if you ever need a stand-in, right here.
