Highlights from Miss Jones” interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to The Edit!
On being a single mom:
“I dont have room for anything else, so I dont know how I would have done it with a partner. I knew I would be raising my son alone. It was something I went in to knowingly, I was prepared mentally and I was excited about it.”
On refusing to reveal who her son”s father is:
“Its just not something the public needs to know. I dont divulge my sexual preferences. There are parts of your life no matter what your job that should remain private. When I was starting out, other actors advised me to keep certain things close to the vest. When you become a public figure people want to know everything about you, and then [they] pick it apart it becomes negative. When my son asks those questions, I want him to [hear it from me]. I dont want him to be able to Google it.”
On “Mad Men” ending after season seven:
“It will be very sad. We are all so close that we will keep in touch, but I don”t think we will ever have this kind of experience again from the relationships we”ve made to the success we have had, to the cultural impact [of the show].”
