One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Recently, actress January Jones discussed her role of portraying Emma Frost to the Daily Mail for the newest installment of the X-Men films, X-Men First Class.

January Jones is Emma Frost

There, she is quoted to say,

“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 has huge boobs with nice, womanly curves, but she is also ripped with muscle.”

Brilliantly put, Jones. Emma Frost is the impossible. She’s a hyper-sexualized cartoon character. There is no way women or men should be subjected to the blatant impossibilities of how women “should” look.

She goes on to say,

“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. We finished Mad Men at the end of August and I had one day to fly to London to start X-Men.”

You know what? Nevermind.

  1. Ripped with muscle? When was this? I’ve never though of Emma as a bruiser. When she needs to be the muscle, she goes into diamond form. Also, last I checked, she has huge boobs because SHE PAID FOR THEM.

    1. Ain’t that the truth.

      I couldn’t get over the article. I have been laughing about it for the past week now. If it was two separate interviews – that’s fine. But this is just down-right ridiculous.
