Why do people hate January Jones?
The whole perfection that is January Jones. I mean, everyone says she is all looks. Like, while she is very stunning, I personally think people underrate her. I am guessing this is mainly either when she has buggered up or how she is playing something. Like, there is so much January Jones/Betty Francis (Draper) hate. I’ve saw January Jones in American Pie: The Wedding, Anger Management, Mad Men and X-Men: First Class. In each one she has played a different kind of role which I personally think shows her adaptability to be just for one role. Yes, I know she is more well known for her ‘ice blonde/ice queen’ look but still, she has played more than just Betty Draper or Emma Frost. Another thing is that January Jones was bashed when she appeared in X-Men: First Class. I am a comic reader and I have a load of X-Men comics and Emma Frost is my favourite character from them. I didn’t think she was all that bad. She was good, not outstanding, but good. JJones still had that stoic like nature that Emma always has to her. The three c’s, calm, cool and collected. So, not to ruin dreams or something but if you ever really expect a massive emotional reaction by what happened in First Class from Emma, then you are quite wrong really. I mean, in the comics, Emma is hardly ever the one to go into outbursts of emotion unless it comes down to certain things such as such as the death of her students, Scott etc. Nothing was even really known about Emma so she was not going to be like ‘OH GOD NO’ when Xavier and Erik broke in. The problem what I think was that the role they made for Emma was not that which is equal to Sebastian (which is understandable since it was the 60’s era so sexism was much stronger) but more of a henchman role. That made JJones limited anyway. Sure, she had to some key scenes but she is removed from the final, basically taking Jones out the climax of the very film which could of won people over. I think if she was treated more of a main character rather than a play thing for Shaw then JJones would have been more successful. Another is the cut scene between Xavier and Emma. I think if that telepathic battle was kept that we could of saw more of January Jones and what she had to offer the character. I can’t think of anything else but yeah, I like her and I don’t see why people hound her so much when there are much worse people who do worse things. This is just my opinion.
