Mad Men star January Jones admits she’s been having trouble filling out the girdle of the curvy late â€˜60s character she portrays on the critically acclaimed AMC show – and it’s gotten her in hot water with producers.
â€œI got told a couple of days ago that I look too skinny, and I was in trouble,â€ January sheepishly told reporters at the July 28 party for the AMC network. â€œI’m naturally pretty thin, so I’m trying,â€ the beautiful blonde actress said, showing reporters she was drinking an Amstel Light beer at the party.
Also, January says, â€œI eat whatever is at craft services. I’m a big eater. I’m from South Dakota, so meat, potatoes, carbs.â€
The star notes that to maintain Mad Men’s early â€˜60s look, in which women definitely had more meat on their bones, she and the other actresses are â€œencouraged NOT to work out. We want soft; we don’t want any muscle definition.â€
January’s character, who is married to advertising guru Don Draper, played by Jon Hamm, is pregnant during the show’s third season, premiering August 16. It has affected her wardrobe: â€œWe’ve done a little bit less petticoats and it’s been really fun.â€
â€œThey tell us to gain weight, gain weight, gain weight, because they want a soft, voluptuous woman which they were [back then] which is beautiful, as it should be.â€

Christina Hendricks fits the “Soft & Voluptuous” description quite perfectly!
