5 of My Fave Quotes By January Jones

I’ve never been trained as an actress, so it’s all instinct. I just let myself go into this kind of a free fall. Sometimes I feel scared, or out of my element – like everyone else knows what they’re doing but me. I don’t know . . . Maybe I function well with fear or I like to be faced with a challenge . . . I think I’m just a work in progress.

“I have that thing in my stomach where I just need to keep striving for things”

“I don’t believe in regret. I just try to be a better person. Try to be a better mum. Maybe it’s an ego thing. But I think even missteps are done for a reason. I have déjà vu a lot and someone once told me that when you feel déjà vu a lot, it’s because you are living your life the way it should be lived. And so I feel – even if it’s been a mistake – it has led me to where I am now. Which is great. So, no, to answer your question: I don’t believe in regretting anything.”

“Women should have lots of secrets, It’s our right to have secrets. Otherwise, what would we write in our memoirs?”

“I prefer to remain mysterious and have people MAKE their own judgment calls about me than to always have to EXPLAIN who I am and what I’m about.”

Another week and another crush!
