Personal Quote:

[on January Jones] 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 ten minutes, and she goes, 'I think it's time for you to leave now.' So I say, 'January, you are an actress in a show and everybody's going to forget about you in a few years, so fucking be nice,' and I got up and left. See more »
