I'm tempted to go with Thumbs Up just for the name alone.

She generally looks like a typical Hollywood blonde, but she does do well with the retro look. They should have incorporated more of that into her White Queen getup, considering the nature of the role.

I'm going to have to go with Thumbs Sideways.

She's beautiful but has no life behind her eyes. She's what I shall dub a "talking manikin".

And I fucking hate Betty Draper.

Still, I'd do her. So, tail up.

Yes. This. We think the same way.

Life behind the eyes is important.

Thumbs up. She's definitely beautiful, without a doubt.

But, she's not my type of beautiful. If I found her in my bedroom, I'd take advantage of the situation to the fullest, but if I ran into her and say, Rose Byrne, in the bar, I'd be hitting on Rose.

She was pretty hot in American Wedding. Now as Betty Draper and Emma Frost. She's just ok. She became the lifeless version of Jenna Elfman.

Seems the people here are not the only ones who share an opinion about her acting ability. Damn this is harsh.

Seems it's not just here

Not a problem.

My one gripe with the movie was January Jones as Emma. She was completely wrong for the part. Her performance was very monotone. I'd say she was the weakest character in the movie.
Not surprising. She was bad on Saturday Night Live, too.

Aside from the character she plays on Mad Men, she really isn't a great actress.

The one joy I have reading other reviews here is almost universal consensus of how appalling Jones was. Does make you wonder why they never replaced her. Hopefully she'll get a well-deserved Razzie nom.
Ouch.

Sideways. She's attractive, but a bit skinny for my tastes.
