Why not show off if you've got something to show?
If everything always went perfectly, I would feel like, When is the ball going to drop? Because good things don't always last. Maybe I'm a pessimistic person. When something just seems too good, I can't believe it.
A lot of the stuff that I do with Betty is in the eyes. A lot of the feelings that I evoke with her are unspoken, so that's been fun to play with.
I have that thing in my stomach where I just need to keep striving for things. In my mind, I want the fairy tale.
I lived in a town of 400 until I was like nine or ten. My dad coached all the sports - he was a gym teacher and health teacher for grades K-12.
If I could do one thing over I'd have been nicer to my parents.
My dad liked how January went with Jones. My sisters' names are Jina and Jacey Jones.
In this business, I don't know how you can have a plan or how you can orchestrate anything. But I've been lucky with my choices. I'm very strong-willed, so I've been able to stick with it. I'm lucky there.
I choose roles that are not me.
People think that I changed my name. I could've been an actress, a superhero, or a stripper.
Going to New York to do whatever - show business - it just seemed fun. It seemed fun to go to the big city and meet all kinds of different people and maybe be famous. It was just exciting. So I wasn't scared.
Am I being typecast as a horrible person? I don't know. I don't think so. But if it happens, I'd rather get to play that, because there's nothing fun about being sweet. Sweet can be so boring, so I'd be happy staying away from that.
I feel as though my career really hit its high point when I was cast as a supporting actress in 'American Wedding'. I thought the script had a lot of depth and intelligence, and it really just jumped off the page.
I wanted to be a meteorologist. I wanted to be a marine biologist.
'Mad Men' was really my first television role, and it never feels like TV to me. It's done at such a high level.
