John Slattery Thinks Bobby Draper Was Overreacting a Little Bit

John Slattery.

Eleven-year-old Jared Gilmore raised some eyebrows yesterday when the erstwhile Bobby Draper warned incoming actors about his Mad Men mom: "Be careful around January [Jones]," he told TV Guide. "She's not as approachable as the others." Her co-star John Slattery, though, says no one has anything to fear from Jones. "She's a sweetheart," Slattery told E! "We got lucky. We don't have anybody like that." So why was Gilmore so freaked out? "Well, it's an intimidating character. I mean, that's the character. Betty Draper is an intimidating woman, I suppose, if you were a seven-year-old boy [or] her son." Try telling that to Glen. [E!]
