Uh-Oh! January Jones Claims To Not Make Much Money On Mad Men!

These are some pretty bold statements, especially considering the turmoil this show is currently in!

Despite her character on Mad Men pretty much being useless last season, January Jones recently spoke out against the series that made her famous, and claims that she doesn't make very much money for her work portraying Betty Draper!

She explains:

"Financially, we don’t get paid very much on the show and that’s well-documented. On the other hand, when you do television you have a steady paycheck each week, so that’s nice."

We imagine that you get paid PRETTY well, gurl, so we caution you to try to avoid biting the hand that feeds you!

Especially now! There have been rumblings that people may be written out of the show next season!

What do U think?? Was January out of line?

    Teachers, nurses, cops, and firemen don't get paid very much money. Maybe she is comparing herself to A-list stars. Instead she should compare her work to the low paid work of people who really make a difference. Get real girlie.

    She should thank her lucky stars - she's pretty but she's no great actress - I'm sure Hollywood is filled with actresses just as pretty and far more talented. As she grows older - maybe she'll realize you don't bite the hand that feeds

    That is the second quote I've heard out of this twat's mouth in the past 24 hours that made me cringe. I dont know who she is, but she's claiming people hated her in school because she was pretty and now she is complainant she doesn't make enough money?? The single mom that works retail doesn't make enough money…this girl is a bitch through and through. I dont watch her shitty show and definitely wont in the future. BTW: Her forehead is huge and she has an ugly body.

    She probably makes per episode what most of us make per year… All I know is.. I saw her in Versace at an award show and I think she needs to shut her mouth frankly…



  5. 5

    tell her to go flip a burger or collect garbage for a day and see what she thinks about that pay scale……

    Telling it like it is, out of line? Please. There's nothing incendiary here.

    We all have those days when our mouth has a mind of it's own. Not a big deal. I have no idea how much or how low her pay is. I do know that some of the fairly well known character actors on certain tv shows make much less than you might think.

    She is on a show on AMC, I am sure compared to people on a a major network show she is not making that much money. Not sure why you jump all over her for making a statement. Mad Men is a good show, but not to many people really see it.

    stfu perez, she makes $20,000k an episode jon Ham Makes $100,00k an episode. If snooki makes $30,000k an episode, then so should January



  10. 10

    I'm sure its more than most Hard working Americans. STFU b*tch and be grateful. Ughhh some people…..



  11. 11

    Oh boo hoo ……..



  12. 12

    When there's people out there losing their jobs left and right and she's complaining bout not getting paid ENOUGH?!
    Honey, YOU DON'T DO ANYTHING. Teachers, Nurses, Cops,etc…THEY DON'T GET PAID ENOUGH!!!!



  13. 13

    With 52 episodes over 4 seasons, I'd bet the cast doesn't get paid as well as their other one-hour cable drama counterparts. That plus the fact that you could go several episodes without seeing half the cast. She definitely tips her hat to the steady job of TV, but c'mon, acknowledge that AMC may owe them more than they're getting! Stop being so bitchy, Perez.

    This girl is a bitch. She fucked her way to where she is, and she asks for discounts everywhere she shops. Loser.



  15. 15

    This woman could not act her way out of a wet paper bag. The fact that she even got hired is amazing to me. She should be thankful for every single dollar she gets.



  16. 16

    Don't make much money? This bitch probably makes 100-200k per week and upwords of 2Mil/yr. She can go EFF herself. Ungreatful Bitch!!



  17. 17

    Boo fucking hoo, bitch! Come and live on my income, and then we'll see if you're still ungrateful. When you have to live paycheck to paycheck, I bet you'll appreciate what you're making on that damn show. What a fucking whiny bitch.



  18. 18

    I strongly dislike her. She strikes me as a pretentious, uptight bitch. Much like her character. Typecast? Everything that comes out of her mouth is negative.



  19. 19

    After reading her entire interview. I've come to the -correct- conclusion that shes a dumb bimbo bitch with too much self entitlement. She won't last long.



  20. 20

    When she demonstrates some talent, I'll listen to her whine…plastic Barbie doll replicas should be discounted, not valued higher.



  21. 21

    Boo hoo. I'm a teacher. My coworkers and I live in fear every day of our jobs getting cut. Girl needs a reality check.



  22. 22

    January Jones should earn more since her character has been written to portray married women of power hunger men in the 60's and 70's in New York. Her acting is right on. I know, I was one of them. It was hell.

    You guys are being unfair to her. And RAPTORSRULE — you are so far off base it's funny. She does not even REMOTELY make $100-200k an episode. Not even many network actors make that much. Cable pay is notoriously low. Yes, compared to teachers and burger flippers, she makes a lot of money. As an actress, she is probably low-paid. And she acknowledged she's happy to have a steady paycheck. And she's good at playing that character. The one whose ego needs to be checked is that bald little sausage Matt Weiner. Yes, he created a good show. But acts like he reinvented television. And, from what I can see, takes credit for everyone else's work and piggishly inserts himself into every episode's writing credits.



  24. 24

    Perhaps she's comparing her paycheck to Charlie Sheen's paycheck.



  25. 25

    perez, you're an asshole. you're always telling people to go to a corner and shut the fuck up. why don't you shut the fuck up?



  26. 26

    Many of the people here are the ones that sound bitchy not January, to me her statement just sounds honest. Compared to many I'm sure she is accurate in what she makes. Look what that crazy drug attic Charlie was making on that crappy sitcom "Two Men whatever". She is gorgeous and a wonderful actress personally I love the show one of best ever on TV since Six Feet Under.



  27. 27

    What the fuck, Perez? I don't see her complaining one bit. She just says they aren't paid that well, considering the great success of the series. She is grateful for the stable paycheck. Stop twisting her words! And your commenting sheep here are just as annoying, buying what you say on your blog. Haha.

    First she tries to become famous by sleeping with just about every famous guy she could get her creepy claws in, than when she has a steady job, something that many aspiring actreses would love, she goes and complain about not being payed enough. I say kick her ass to the curb that hobag. I've always dispised her since her boyfriend hopping to become famous. Ick
