January Jones Fat Suit

Careful, ‘Mad Men’ fans — Spoiler alert ahead!

Mad Men fans were dying to know how the show would handle January Jonespregnancy while filming, and on the latest episode they got to see her weight gain as part of a dramatic story line.

To hide January’s real-life pregnancy, she dons a fat suit and uses makeup tricks that were used on Elizabeth Moss during her season 1 pregnancy on the show. The show also uses clever camera angles and a body double during a bath scene for the right effect.

The episode focuses on her character Betty’s weight gain, which was revealed to be a result of a tumor on her thyroid. Betty, always known for her good looks, must deal with her significant weight gain and the fear of leaving her children without a mother.

But once the tumor is benign, she’s back to her sharp-tongued self.

What do YOU think of Mad Men’s clever way to hide January’s pregnancy, BFFs?

@anon very rarely is a pregnancy thats written into a popular show one that ends in a live birth like when Kate Seagals was written into married with childrens 4th season she ended up having a still born daughter Ruby Jean and then it was chalked up as a dream sequence. Ms Jones isn’t anything to fuss over nor should a movie channel have it’s own shows unless it’s something like Weeds or The Sopranos both of which were HBO. AMC is a newer channel founded about 20 years after HBO and without the support of big stars being donors.

The “Bing” advertising on your page shows a woman bending over a bed with a naked man having sex with her from behind. Just the thing I want my son to see when he walks in the room. Morons!

Kind of sad that you didn’t see the sarcasm there.
