Watch Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka play child psychologist to fellow child stars

Pin it

Some more Mad Men methadone for all you junkies, from Funny or Die: Kiernan Shipka, who plays Sally Draper on your favorite show, apparently had so many sessions with Dr. Edna that she felt she could give this child-psychologist thing a whirl, and help some fellow child stars. And she seems eerily mature beyond her eleven years, calling to mind Bobbe J. from "Shutterbugs."

We see Shipka lend an ear to Nolan Gould (Modern Family's Luke Dunphy) as he deals with Mad Men envy, as well as his "witty aside" problem. She also tries to help Danielle Fishel from Boy Meets World (who, I must say, has grown up real nice), as well as baby Hope from Raising Hope, who may be a bit young for antidepressants. But her final patient, Eden Wood from Toddlers & Tiaras, is her most poignant one. The fact that her mother made her do this, too, might be genuinely funny if it wasn't genuinely sad.
