January Jones: Canoe Interview
On the relatively short shooting schedule and release of the film..
"Poor (director) Matthew Vaughn is going to have to edit it in three days.That's been a blast. We've all had so much fun making that movie."
"I think it was unrealistic for them to think they were going to make such a huge movie in whatever we had -- two months or something. So of course we went over (schedule). I think I have a couple more days to shoot."
"We're almost done. The fact we've had to push the wrap date but they haven't moved the release date is really interesting to me. I guess they must know what they're doing. I have a lot of faith in Matthew as a director and an editor; I think his movies are great. And I think they've been cutting as we've been going. We should be fine."
On Emma's costume and powers..
"Everybody wants to know about the costume. I didn't really know much about her beforehand, but when I did my research, she's a very -- specifically visually -- iconic character. Nobody talks about the fact she's got the most bad-ass powers. "
