Zach Galifianakis recalls that time January Jones was a bitch

May. 23, 2011by: Mike Sampson

Zach Galifianakis is out and about promoting THE HANGOVER, PART II and one thing has become readily clear in the interviews he's given: Zach does not suffer fools gladly. Director Todd Phillips recently said Galifianakis has a "hate-hate relationship with his audience." Even if his audience includes famous people.

January Jones, soon to be seen in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, is apparently a big fan, telling a reporter earlier this year, "Zach Galifianakis is a genius. Hes just extremely quick and genuine, and its not forced and hes not always trying to be funny." The feeling, as it turns out, is not mutual.

When asked about Jones and his appeal to beautiful women he'd otherwise not be hanging out with, Galifianakis expressed surprised and said, "Thats really funny because, if I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other." Do tell...

"I was at a party Id never met her and she was like, 'Come sit down.' So I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, 'I think its time for you to leave now.' So I say, 'January, you are an actress in a show and everybodys going to forget about you in a few years, so f*cking be nice,' and I got up and left."

In my mind, I imagine a slow clap breaking out as Galifianakis strode away or at least that's me slow-clapping right now.

The photo above is of Jones and Galifianakis at the party in question (the "Oceana's Partners Award Gala" in 2009) and from the looks of things Jones may have called over Zach, the other famous person at the party, for some cutesy press photos (he already doesn't look amused). Or it could all be an act and they're best buds and just fucking with each other in the press (Galifianakis is close friends with "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm). But I like to believe it's true and he's not joking, cause, well...you know.

I've actually heard that Zach Galifinakis is just a straight-up douche.

Yup. The people who don't like his humor think he's the douche. I'll bet he thinks the people who don't think he's funny are the douches, and his humor is just beyond them. He seems arrogant as fuck.

I don't think he's a douche, he just has a very particular sense of humor and you either find that funny or you don't.

He seemed like it on the Comedians of Comedy, but I never knows what's real and what is fake with him.

I'm not exactly sure how this is relevant to anything. It is an amusing story though.

Sorry, Samps, you are usually right on the money... but this sort of story reeks of Perez Hilton or some other such site. Not the elite movie site your fans have grown to love. Just being honest.

It's a slow news day and thought this was a moderately funny/interesting story. If you don't like it, there's a ton of additional content on the site for ya.

Regarding the Mel Gibson issue...

He just stated recently that the rumours going around that he got Mel Gibson's cameo cut out are complete bullshit.

Is this news?

"But I like to believe it's true and he's not joking, cause, well...you know."

What are we supposed to know exactly? That your a biased author with a grudge against some B-List actress? Please tell me you don't get paid to write this garbage.

In the next scene of the movie about this thread, Ancaja123 gives Mike Sampson a traditional Greek Reach-Around. God, man, go wash the brown off your nose.

Mike Sampson is my favorite writer on this site, specifically because I can never see any sort of bias with him, or maybe I just have similar tastes. News like this is more interesting than Tassi posting f*cking video game trailers on a movie site.

Biased or not, I'm just glad I didn't catch any glaring typos - now THAT would be the sign of a bad author! If people haven't figured out that every author puts the occasional personal thought into an article on this site, then they need to change their tampon and go read a newspaper. But yeah Sampson, I knew where you were going with that last line - I was thinking the same thing.

I have never met January Jones and know next to nothing about her (I've never seen "Mad Men" once). I desire this story to be true because I find it to be a hilarious story and wish that it actually happened. Just like when you see a funny YouTube video and you say to yourself, "I hope that's not a fake or something to get publicity..." If it's some "in joke" between Galifianakis and Jones, it's really not that funny a story.

If he was being serious, than this news plus the news of his crying like a bitch about Mel Gibson really make him out to be a huge whiny bitch!

I do however enjoy his stand up!

I think Zach Galifianakis' press machine should be bit more careful, because every article I read about him seems to be designed to make people like him less, not more. Surely that is not the best path to a long term high profile career. If he is not careful viewers may abandon him.

It's working because he seems like a self centered tool.

If you think Zach Galifianakis is a douche, listen to the WTF Podcast with him, or check out his stand up. He's pretty much the same dude pre-fame as his is post, and besides that, who gives a shit? The guy is funny, if you don't find him so then just ignore him, it's amazing how well that can work.
