January Jones: A-list name, B-list (as in “bad”) attitude?

Seems to be the case, at least according to those who've crossed paths with the Mad Men beauty.

The latest to go public with tales of Jones' surly reputation is Jared Gilmore, the 11-year-old child actor who left Mad Men for a role on ABC’s Once Upon a Time.

Little Jared's not the only one to have a less-than-fond memory of their time alongside the calendar girl.

The Hangover funnyman Zach Galifianakis recalled a testy exchange he had with the blonde beauty, in an May interview with the website Shortline.
