“Mad Men” actress January Jones will soon be seen in theaters everywhere with the release of “X-Men: First Class,” and she’s been telling fans more about her character Emma Frost and those scary stunts.
Speaking to Daily Mail about “becoming” Emma, she said, “You hold yourself differently and it creates that incredibly feminine shape, though I’m glad I don’t have to wear it every day."
"Emma Frost, my X-Men character, has an impossible body," she added. "She has huge boobs with nice, womanly curves, but she is also ripped with muscle.”
“In the amount of time I had to train it just wasn’t possible to achieve that amount of muscle without losing all the good bits,” she admitted. “We finished 'Mad Men' at the end of August and I had one day to fly to London to start X-Men.”
As impossible as a body like that is, it sounds as if the stunts were even worse.
“I was nearly decapitated by the stunt wires in X-Men,” she revealed. “The most difficult stunts were with Michael Fassbender [Magneto], where I was spinning in the air on those wires. While my stunt double did a lot of the harder stuff, I’ve always been very sporty and the stunts and action are part of the fun.”
While that sounds traumatic, Jones seemed as cool as her character, and returned to describing her.
“As Emma Frost I’m telepathic, and I can turn into a diamond, which means I’m very, very cold. I always wear white: lots of iridescent stretch leather, lots of sparkle, and ass-kicking white boots.”
