The pressure many actresses are under to maintain a slim and sleek shape might be the norm in Hollywood, but “Mad Men” star January Jones is happy to be part of a production that’s an exception to the rule.
In an interview with Britain’s Tatler magazine, Jones applauded show creator Matthew Weiner and his idea of figure-flattering suggestions for the leading ladies of “Mad Men.”
“He would prefer we didn’t work out and that we eat really well, so we look like healthy women,” Jones explained.
The actress behind Betty “no-longer-Draper” Francis believes Weiner’s approach reaches far beyond her and co-stars Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth Moss.

Speidi divorce scam?
Could the split between paparazzi-courting couple Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag actually be the real deal? Not according to a recent RadarOnline report.
Despite Montag’s oh-so-public gestures — breaking up with Pratt in May, filing for separation in June and amending the paperwork to divorce in July — an insider insists she still lives with her “Hills” hubby, and it’s all just another one of Pratt’s notorious fame games.
“Spencer thinks this is how he is going to get famous again,” the source revealed. “They have staged the entire separation/divorce thing. Heidi and Spencer have been living together in a house in Malibu since the original breakup.”
The man Kanye made Twitter-famous resents attention
While Twitter newbie Kanye West made a big impression during his first week of rapid-fire tweets, he also put the spotlight on one unsuspecting fan.
Steven Holmes — or as West calls him, “the chosen one” — is the man behind the one and only account the rapper follows on the microblogging site. It’s an exclusive nod that’s gone from an honor to a bother for Holmes.
“Holy s--- bro,” Holmes wrote when he first realized he was the focus of West’s attention. “Thx for following!”
But after gaining a big boost in other followers, a lesson in abusive tweets and a fair amount of media attention, Holmes now regrets his newfound fame.
“This has been completely surreal and I really have no desire for this attention,” the reluctant Twitter celebrity posted Monday. “I'm just a normal person.”
Dish on the fly
Playboy founder Hugh Hefner believes more isn’t just merrier, it’s also easier when it comes to maintaining relationships with the women in his life. “Sometimes one is more difficult,” the 84-year-old confessed in an interview with the New York Daily News. “I was married and faithful for eight years in the 1980s, and following that, as an overreaction to that failed marriage, I wound up with seven live-in girlfriends. Dealing with those seven girlfriends was easier than dealing with one wife.” … “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice found a way to offset some of her multimillion-dollar debt — or at least get a few gratis spray tans while bankruptcy takes care of the cash. In a new television ad for Sizzle Tanning Salon, a bikini-clad Giudice assures would-be customers that she brings “the heat to Jersey at Sizzle tan.” She also brings the line deliveries that must be heard to be believed.
