January Jones: 'Milk cleanses are not for me'

January Jones doesn't like regimented workouts.

Actress January Jones could never sign up for a milk cleanse or any other form of extreme dieting, because she gets angry when she doesn't eat.

The former Mad Men star always looks flawless on the red carpet, but her glowing skin and slim physique have nothing to do with a crazy food fad or workout regime.

"I know there are a lot of cleanses people do," she told "I need to eat, or I get lightheaded and angry. But I love taking enzymes and probiotics and feeling good and being healthy and eating healthy, but I'm not going to starve myself or do a milk cleanse.

"Almost every actress I know has tried it. You don't eat, and you only drink goat milk for eight days. You're only supposed to do it once a year, and I saw someone—I won't name her—but I saw her right afterwards, and she looked amazing."

Instead of taking drastic measures to stay in shape, the 38-year-old prefers fun activities with her four-year-old son Xander, as well as exercise classes she can enjoy.

"I just started working out four weeks ago," she confessed. "I started doing Cardio Barre, and I like it. It goes by quick. I just don't like gyms. I did prenatal yoga when I was pregnant, but I'm not a big workout person.

"I'll go on hikes and run around with my kid, but I don't like a regimented workout regime. But I'm liking the Cardio Barre. I feel like it's fun, and all my girlfriends go."

When it comes to beauty, however, January is much more high maintenance: "I don't get facials, I do them at home, so I love doing exfoliation masks and moisture masks and serums and creams and eye patches. I just love all that stuff."
