January Jones has admitted she doesn't find the dating game easy

January Jones has said she would love to meet an "interesting man" to date and make her feel life isn't just about working.

The single Mad Men beauty, who is pregnant with her first child, said "everything seems kind of pointless" without children and she wants to find a man.

January told The Sun: "I just hope I can also meet a great man who's going to make me feel that my life isn't just about the work."

She added: "I would love to find an interesting man to date but people don't seem to date so much any more. It's more of a hanging out process.

"It's hard to find romance, the kind of love story that carries you away. I would love to have that. I'm pretty idealistic when it comes to love."

The 33-year-old is currently single after splitting from comedian Jason Sudeikis earlier this year, and wants to keep her child's father's identity private.

She plays telepathic superhero Emma Frost in the new X-Men movie, X-Men: First Class.

January said she is pleased to be taking a starring role in the film, directed by Matthew Vaughn, but said she feels she sometimes gets typecast as a beautiful blonde woman.

January added: "It's hard to find material that gives you the chance to challenge people's expectations. I've had to fight blonde stereotypes and doubt my entire career until Matthew gave me a role I could make my own.

"I love being at a point where you start seeing the possibilities unfold for you. I just hope I can also meet a great man who's going to make me feel that my life isn't just about the work."
