Mad Men's Sally Draper must surely be a little screwed up from dealing with her eternally self-absorbed parents, but don't expect her to run away, drop acid, and join the Manson family just yet. "I think Sally is a strong person," big-boned screen mom January Jones told TV.com. "Sally is more her father than her own mother, and I think that she'll probably be fine. I think that she'll probably be, you know, Anna Wintour or something." (Well, the wardrobe certainly helps.) Still, Jones can understand the pain that Sally feels: "I remember every little thing that my parents did to me that I was irritated by, I just do, and my parents were great. My dad was my gym teacher when I was six years old, and he never picked me to be team captain, and that sat with me thirty years. I can't even imagine." Matthew Weiner is so gonna use that.
