January Jones sure has an interesting audition story, starring herself and Jerry Bruckheimer!
During The Hollywood Reporter‘s Emmy Roundtable of Drama Actresses, January talks about how she was in to read for a role in Coyote Ugly.
According to The Superficial, the segment went a little something like this:
January Jones: That just reminded me of one of the worst moments in my entire life. It was an audition for Coyote Ugly, my second audition ever. I’d done the reading for the acting part and then Jerry Bruckheimer wanted me to come in and dance … on top of the table.
Margulies: You mean just regular dance?
Jones: Yes. They said, “You’re going to dance to Prince’s ‘Kiss.’ You’re going to pole dance, but there is no pole.” (Laughter.) And I just turned beet red. It was awful, and he said something like, “Honey, you did a great reading, but you’ve got no rhythm.” (Laughter.) I called my agent and said, “I don’t want to do this anymore.”
That does sound a lot like January- bashful, conflicted and with no rhythm! Just kidding, we love her- and she’s the darling of Mad Men. I love hearing these stories, though- because it shows us that stars have embarrassing moments, too!
Carey Mulligan was one of the Met Gala’s hosts last night, and her dress certainly has people talking! The shimmering (almost fish-scale-looking) dress stole the show. She showed up to the event with her husband of about two weeks, Mumford & Sons lead singer Marcus Mumford. Carey’s dress is by Prada.
January Jones showed up in a bright yellow Versace dress. Christina Ricci wore an interesting Thakoon gown. Lily Collins appeared at the Met for the first time in a Collette Dinnigan dress. Dianna Agron was the guest of Carolina Herrera. Karolina Kurkova wore an outfit by Rachel Zoe. Rachel Zoe herself looked scary-skinny, as always.
Rooney Mara wore a black see-through dress by Givenchy. Rashida Jones wore a floral dress by Tory Burch. Ashley Greene wore a white gown by Donna Karan. Elizabeth Banks wore an incredibly ugly dress by Mary Katrantzou.
Jamie King wore a red dress by Top Shop. Brooke Shields had the most-talked about accessory. She was seen using a can as she walked down the aisle, after suffering a foot injury. Solange Knowles wore a yellow Rachel Roy dress. Chloe Sevigny wore a short, black Miu Miu dress. Mia Wasikowska wore a red dress by Prada. Lea Michele wore a navy sequined Diane von Furstenberg dress.
Worst dressed of the entire night has to go to Florence Welch, who wore an outrageous dress by Alexander McQueen.
And that’s a wrap!!
