‘Mad Men’ Star January Jones Reveals Her Worst Audition Ever; Plus Other Actors Who Almost Got The Part (PHOTOS)
“That just reminded me of one of the worst moments in my entire life. It was an audition for Coyote Ugly, my second audition ever. I’d done the reading for the acting part and then Jerry Bruckheimer wanted me to come in and dance … on top of the table … They said, ‘You’re going to dance to Prince’s ‘Kiss.’ You’re going to pole dance, but there is no pole.'” Jones told the The Hollywood Reporter.
So how did she react to the racy audition request?
Jones added: “I just turned beet red. It was awful, and he said something like, ‘Honey, you did a great reading, but you’ve got no rhythm.’ I called my agent and said, ‘I don’t want to do this anymore.'”
