Who Is January Jones
She’s the porcelain-skinned, mild-mannered Grace Kelly incarnate who dazzles onscreen whether she’s playing a naïve 1960s housewife or an over-sexed accent aficionado. January Jones is probably glad she never took an obnoxious ex-boyfriend’s advice when he told her she should give up on acting.
American actress January Jones has a net worth ballparking $10 million dollars, as of 2020.
The Page And Head Turner
Born from a classic character, January was named after the well-to-do virgin in Jacqueline Susann’s novel Once is Not Enough. But her early occupation was not as glamorous as her alter ego’s life on the page. January was asking patrons if they wanted a single or double scoop while working at a Dairy Queen in South Dakota. But after the bombshell moved to New York when she was 18 years old, she landed a job as a model for the ubiquitous pretty clothing brand Abercrombie & Fitch.
But January wasn’t sold on whittling away her career striking a pose and soon headed across the country to Los Angeles to make it as an actress. January’s film debut had her rubbing elbows with the industry’s finest—Jeff Daniels and Anna Paquin in the indie film All the Rage (1999). But two years later January would bust through the glass ceiling and find her big break in The Glass House opposite Leelee Sobieski.
Beauty And The Goof
The hottest blonde newcomer to Hollywood, January quickly became the talk of the town and the apple of more than a few eyes. After initially meeting when they were both modeling for Abercrombie & Fitch, January reconnected with Ashton Kutcher in 1998 upon her arrival to Tinseltown, and the two became an item. But he was hardly supportive of her budding acting career. She revealed in an interview with GQ, “He was like, I don’t think you’re going to be good at this.” Their romance lasted for three years before she went on to have another long-term relationship with singer Josh Groban, which ended in 2006.
Driving Men Mad
She was more than popular with her male colleagues, but January soon became popular among the Hollywood film circuit appearing in Bandits (2001), Anger Management (2003), Love Actually (2003) and Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights (2004). But three years later, January would land the role that would define her newborn, yet wildly successful, career—Betty Draper in Mad Men. January’s role as an apathetic ‘60s housewife to a Madison Avenue advertising tycoon put her on the map and the red carpet. The breakout series was nominated for over 16 Emmys and January herself was nominated for Best Actress Golden Globes and Emmy Awards.
While its ad men onscreen, January has been known to fall for a funnyman or two off-screen, and her 2010 romance with SNL castmember, Jason Sudeikis was no exception. Although the two called it quits in early January of 2011, we have no doubt that there will be guys lined up to deliver a punch line to snag this timeless beauty.
