January Jones featured for Net-A-Porter Magazine The Edit‘ I Don’t Divulge My Sexual Preferences’. The Mad Men star is taking a break for season six of the show. The thirty five year old star is a very private person looked picture perfect wearing a bright red Gucci gown. She had been photographed by Kurt Iswarienko. She talks being a single mom and keeping secret about her son’s father’s identity.
On being a single mom:
“I don’t have room for anything else, so I don’t know how I would have done it with a partner. I knew I would be raising my son alone. It was something I went in to knowingly, I was prepared mentally – and I was excited about it.”
On refusing to reveal who her son’s father is:
“It’s just not something the public needs to know. I don’t divulge my sexual preferences. There are parts of your life – no matter what your job – that should remain private. When I was starting out, other actors advised me to keep certain things close to the vest. When you become a public figure people want to know everything about you, and then [they] pick it apart – it becomes negative. When my son asks those questions, I want him to [hear it from me]. I don’t want him to be able to Google it.”
On “Mad Men” ending after season seven:
“It will be very sad. We are all so close that we will keep in touch, but I don’t think we will ever have this kind of experience again – from the relationships we’ve made to the success we have had, to the cultural impact [of the show].”
