January Jones: Ashton Kutcher Told Me To Quit Acting

January Jones (photosJanuary Jones photos) says it's a good thing she didn't listen to Ashton Kutcher about her acting.

The 'Mad Men' star tells 'GQ' magazine that her ex didn't think she could make it in Hollywood: "The guy I was dating when I first got to L.A. was not supportive of my acting."

"He was like, I don't think you're going to be good at this. So, f--k you!"

"He only has nice things to say now. If anything, I should thank him. Because the minute you tell me I can't do something, that's when I'm most motivated."

The onetime Abercrombie and Fitch model says she was at the gravesite of Doors frontman Jim Morrison in Paris when she realized she was "miserable" modeling.

"You're like an object. They move you around. And I felt like, God, I'm miserable. I hate modeling," says Jones. "When I moved back to New York, the agency said I owed them $20,000. So I left the agency and then — very quickly — decided to go to Los Angeles and try acting. Without any training."

It didn't go well: "I felt really vulnerable at auditions. Like, why do these people deserve to see me have these emotions for five minutes and then tell me that I'm bad at it?"

But eventually, through audition after audition, she learned how to harness her emotions. Now years later, January Jones is a Golden Globe-nominated actress with critical praise for her role as 'Mad Men's Betty Draper.
