Has it been fun playing Jon Hamm’s neighbor (and mistress) on the show?
After having a baby [daughter Lilah-Rose] last year, it’s been so much fun to play such a sexy character! But being in front of the camera after giving birth was terrifying. I gained over 55 lbs. during my pregnancy, and I had about 7 months to lose it. One of the first things I did was go to Zumba!
You’re almost unrecognizable decked out in your ’60s garb.
I’ve been getting that a lot. The wig and the mole and the makeup—it’s a different era and a different look for me. I look a little bit like my aunt.
Does your daughter recognize you when you are in costume?
She knew that something was off. She tried for about 15 minutes to pick the mole off my face. She was totally perplexed by the whole look.
