Yesterday January Jones wanted to share with the world that she is “ just like a Bowie character.” (Her own words) Her fashion sense is ” ultramodern and very thought-out” and supposedly she would like to think that it goes beyond the run-of-the-mill celebrity style. January actually wants to be shocking. Surprising thing is she was talking about her personal fashion sense and her over all appearance.
Apparently Miss Jones forgot for a moment what Jack Nicholson had said to her about talking too much about oneself. Jack had informed her to keep her personal business on the down low. “Jack Nicholson once told me: ‘You should never give your personal life away, otherwise people will pick you apart. They’ll never believe in your character.’
So far January has done some remarkable things: she is an actress who plays herself or the darker side of herself consistently. Unfortunately it’s always the same dark or rather cold hearted side. In addition she had a baby a while back and nobody knows who the father is. Not that many people would actually think that is a big deal but in celebrity land it’s quite something. (Not unique but it does say something about Miss Jones or maybe more about the possible sperm donor.) January commented when asked about the baby daddy: “That’s my son’s business. It’s not the public’s business.”
She also had capsules made from her dried placenta after the birth of her son. She mentioned that these placenta capsules in conjunction with a healthy diet and vitamins helped getting her back into shape and acting. Most people did find this shocking in the way that it sounds repulsive and quite absurd. However January has accomplished her goal by saying this: she is both edgy as talked about. Maybe it doesn’t even matter if she really swallows those pills or not.
January can still be proud of her many roles* so far at just 35. Especially that she got these roles mainly due to the fact that she is very nice to look at and that she can play women without an ounce of empathy for the characters she has to interact with. (Which is also remarkable because women in general are widely known for their empathy skills so in order to turn that off is quite an accomplishment.)
Her final musings for the day are rather interesting and might explain the reason why she feels the need to be shocking and
Bowie like: “Women should have lots of secrets. It’s our right to have secrets. Otherwise, what would we write in our memoirs?”
*Many roles as being the cold, distant, calculated and suddenly ballooning to a size that doesn’t exist because it’s a fat suit Betty Draper. (This would have been an excellent opportunity for Miss Jones to prove that she could do more then channeling a freezer and memorise her lines flawlessly. This could have been her Renee Zellweger/Bridget Jones moment. However she opted to go for the road more travelled. Nothing wrong with that but it’s very Gwyneth Paltrow of her.) The other “many” roles would be the aptly named “Emma Frost” in the “X-men first class” movie.
