"Mad Men" star January Jones recently said that Zach Galifianakis was one of the most naturally funny men she'd ever met. So how did "The Hangover" star take the compliment? Well, he thought it was a bit of a headscratcher, considering he'd recently had some pretty harsh words for Jones.

Galifianakis told the Shortlist, "That’s really funny because, if I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other. It was crazy. I was at a party — I’d never met her — and she was like, 'Come sit down.' So I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, 'I think it’s time for you to leave now,'" he said. "So I say, 'January, you are an actress in a show and everybody’s going to forget about you in a few years, so f---ing be nice,' and I got up and left. And she thinks that’s funny?"
