January Jones is barely recognizable in the new issue of Vs. Magazine!
The ‘Mad Men’ star, 35, showed off her sultry side in the spring/summer ‘Passionate’ edition. The actress rocked some dark brown hair, a stark contrast from her character on ‘Mad Men’.
In the Western Sweetwater, which will premiere on Thursday night at the Sundance Film Festival, Miss Jones plays a red-haired former prostitute seeking revenge on the rancher who killed her husband.
Describing how she prepared for the role she joked: ‘I went back to my days of… I had to dig deep into my past.
‘It was a really cool role, like being a female Clint Eastwood in Pale Rider.’
The Los Angeles-based actress, who was pictured for the first time as a brunette last November, revealed that the colour change was for a project but teased: ‘I can’t tell you which, yet.’
Talking about the chestnut hue, the natural blonde, added: ‘There’s a high maintenance to my having dark hair: when the blonde roots start coming in it looks like I’m balding or graying or something – not cute!’
She told ABC News that her one-year-old son Xander also prefers her as a blonde and when he looks at photographs of her with light tresses he says, ‘Mama’.
Ms Jones will hit the small screen as Betty Draper again on April 7 as AMC airs the sixth season of Mad Men in the U.S.
Discussing her character’s evolution over the years she said: ‘The most interesting thing to me is the fans’ reaction to her evolution because I remember being on the streets of New York in the first season or two and people would come up to me and be like, ”Oh my god, it’s you! Oh my god, poor Betty.”
‘People wanted to hug me, they felt so bad for her. A couple of weeks ago, I was waiting at a jewelry store to get a clasp fixed and this other customer was glaring at me. Finally I was like, ”Yes?” and she goes, ”I just want you to know, I hate your character.”
Asked if there was anything she wouldn’t do in her career Miss Jones told Mr Atwood that she would never appear in liquor, tobacco or fried chicken adverts.
‘I’m a mom now… so I’m conscious of being a different kind of role model,’ she said.
Kate Boswoth, Eva Herzigova and Irina Shayk also feature in the upcoming issue of Vs. Magazine.
I think January Jones looks best as a blonde, but she definitely looks hot in these pictures!
