January Jones' Scariest Hollywood Moment
May 30, 2012
Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress January Jones has had a lot of good days in Hollywood, but she's also had some pretty bad ones. She shared one of her worst auditions during a round-table discussion with The Hollywood Reporter.
"It was an audition for Coyote Ugly, my second audition ever," January said when asked about her scariest moment as an actor. "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 ... They said, 'You're going to dance to Prince's Kiss. You're going to pole dance, but there is no pole.'"
The Mad Men star counts the audition as one of the worst moments of her life, saying, "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.' I called my agent and said, 'I don't want to do this anymore.'"
