A very svelte January Jones stopped by Tuesday night’s launch event for The Shops at Target. The Mad Men star (at least she’s sometimes on that show), who gave birth about seven months ago, clearly hasn’t had too much trouble losing the baby weight. Though, she says she had no pressure to do so: “I had no pressure to lose it in any certain amount of time,” she told us on the red carpet. Hmm…does that mean her role on Mad Men has been scaled back even more? Perhaps to non-existent?
Even if Betty
Draper Francis has been strangely absent from the show, she made a pretty big splash with her brief appearance on this season’s second episode, on which the actress’s pregnancy was disguised as a massive weight gain. Thus began the silly “Fat Betty” meme, which included a Twitter hashtag and actual Twitter account, as well as a ridiculous song and video, set to the tune of Black Betty, which you can watch below.
The meme was also controversial–with people questioning whether or not it was okay to poke fun at a woman’s weight gain, even if it was fictional. Jones didn’t mind weighing in: “I have to think it’s funny; I don’t take offense.” When asked which Betty (fat or skinny) she liked better, she said, “Skinny betty was meaner!”
We like her perspective.
