January Jones opens up about her style in the New York Times, says “I want to do things that are shocking.”

January Jones is not about to reveal the identity of her son’s father, and you have Jack Nicholson to thank for that.

While everyone (me) believes the baby daddy is Jason Sudeikis, it’s also been rumored to be Bobby Flay and Matthew Vaughn (who is married to supermodel Claudia Schiffer).

In a new interview with The New York Times, January Jones opens up about ‘Mad Men,’ how people perceive her, and why she won’t reveal who the father of her son, Xander, is.

On being playing the uptight Betty Draper on ‘Mad Men’:

“That was the fear for me,” Ms. Jones said, “that we’d be in the third season, and you’d hate the character.”

Ms. Jones regards Betty with compassion. “She is really searching for something, but doesn’t know herself well enough to know what might make her happy,” she said. If Betty seems unmoored, “that’s because she is a little girl, an orphan,” Ms. Jones said. “She has a childlike emotional response to things. You have to treat that very, very tenderly.”

On the scene in ‘Mad Men,’ where Betty tells her husband he can “rape” one of Sally’s friends:

“Betty has a sick sense of humor,” Ms. Jones said. “People need to realize that in that scene, Betty is just basically trying to make Henry blush. “

On the identity of her son’s father:

“That’s my son’s business,” she said. “It’s not the public’s business.”

Fans might relate better to her if she did discuss her private life, but the prospect seems not to interest her. “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.’ ”

On eating the placenta after her son was born:

“It was like taking a vitamin blended into a smoothie,” she said unabashedly, explaining that the practice is a common folk remedy against postpartum blues. Maybe she shouldn’t have been so candid, Ms. Jones said, adding with pinch of sarcasm: “I’m a mammal. I nursed. I did all kinds of weird stuff.”


The stunning Christy Turlington lands the latest cover of Harper’s Bazaar

Christy Turlington graces Harper’s BAZAAR’s June/July cover, on newsstands May 28, and in the interview, she opens up about her modeling career, family, philanthropy, and more.

“I can kick! I can stretch! I’m . . . 50!” “I’ve been doing that since I was 27. I can’t wait to be 50.”

In fact, Turlington is 44—and 30 years into a career as what many have called the “ultimate supermodel,” she still very much has her powers. But because she models infrequently these days, a Turlington cover has a sense of occasion. “Now I feel like it’s a treat again,” says the mother of two (Grace, nine, and Finn, seven, with filmmaker husband Edward Burns), “because I do it so seldom. I can appreciate it in a new way.”

Starting to model in her teens saved Turlington from feeling self-conscious. “I was going through the age where most people hate themselves, and I was getting attention in my most awkward years. It wasn’t all roses, but I knew enough to take everything with a grain of salt.”

Of the Bazaar shoot, she says, “Dan [Jackson] said to me, ‘When you smile you look like you’re 16.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah—and then there’s my neck.’”

To date she has resisted anything more cosmetic than makeup. “I don’t know, I feel like it’s getting freakier. Maybe there will be a time when you’re an oddball because you’re the only one left. I’d rather be the only one, the sole survivor. And in that case?” She smiles. “I’ll just wear turtlenecks all year-round.”

“That’s a girl’s life for the rest of her days— somewhere between a lollipop and shots.”

She is seriously flawless. Gorgeous!!

Calvin Klein has cast Rooney Mara as the face of its Downtown scent, which hit counters globally in September.

I think Rooney is the perfect pick for this campaign. I think she’s gorgeous!


Emma Watson in W Magazine: “The allure of being sexy never really held any excitement for me”

Emma Watson graces the W Magazine cover for June, and I think she looks absolutely gorgeous. The styling is perfect, it suits her beautifully!

Emma is promoting her new movie The Bling Ring, which I cannot WAIT to see! It’s a new movie by Sofia Coppola. Looks amazing. (Trailer after the jump.

The interview is long – and really interesting!

What is the first movie you remember seeing?
Pretty Woman. I was 7, which was way, way too young. That was when I started loving Julia Roberts and American movies. As a child, I loved being onstage. I loved singing, I loved the lights, I loved the adrenaline. I even loved learning lines. I was completely obsessive. A friend of my mother’s found a tape of me auditioning for Hermione. I wanted to get really, really good at my lines. There was reel after reel, take after take, of me doing the same thing over and over again.

Did you ever feel the pressure of having to be a shining example to young girls worldwide?
I was always a very serious child. I remember being 13 and girls in my class saying, “So-and-so is going to kiss so-and-so on the school fields.” I said, “That’s stupid. They’re too young for it to matter—he doesn’t love her, and that’s just a waste of time.” It’s amazing that I had any friends! [Laughs] So I was the right child to get cast: I loved the responsibility.

Did you have your first kiss on camera?
Thankfully, no. I’ve always been fascinated by Elizabeth Taylor, and I had read that her first kiss happened on a film set, which actually made me a little sad. You need to have normal experiences of your own. I’ve never wanted to grow up too fast: I wanted to wear a sports bra until I was 22! The allure of being sexy never really held any excitement for me. I’ve never been in a terrible rush to be seen as a woman.
