Zach Galifianakis and January Jones are the best of mates…not!
The Hangover II comedian spoke to Shortlist about a run-in he once had with the Mad Men star.
The interviewer told Galifianakis that Jones had recently called him the “most naturally funny man she’d ever met”. Which baffled Galifianakis.
“That’s really funny because, if I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other,” he said. “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.’ “
Galifianakis was a little taken a back by her rudeness and quickly shot her down.
“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******g be nice’ and I got up and left. And she thinks that’s funny?”
I guess Galifianakis isn’t Jones’ baby daddy then! Jones is pregnant with her first child. She hasn’t revealed who the father is.
The run-in obviously left a lasting impression on Galifianakis, with the actor saying if he was offered a part in a film which required him to do a sex scene with Jones, he wouldn’t want anything to do with it.
“I wouldn’t want to. I’d hate it. I’ve only had to do a few of those things where you have to kiss and stuff. It’s so embarrassing.”
Reps for both actors did not respond to requests for comment, but the whole saga seems a little petty and could give the pair a whole new reputation.
Perhaps an apology is in order, but given what we’ve just learned, my guess is neither one would be willing to step up and say the big ‘S’ word first.
Tut, tut! Let’s just hug and make up…no? Not even a handshake? Guess we’ll just have to accept that is unlikely we’ll ever see these two sharing the big screen together!
