Who Would You Rather Be Friends With In High School: January Jones Or Christina Hendricks?

These two beautiful Mad Men actresses had very different experiences in high school.

We know January was one of the pretty girls, perhaps even the Regina George of her school.


• Being popular gets you through high school pretty easily and it's good for yourself esteem.

• Invitations to all the popular kid parties (this is high school, was anything else more important?).

• Being someone who is envied, you look down from the top of the social pyramid at all those unpopular kids below.

• Protection from being bullied.


• The constant fear of falling off the social pyramid; one wrong step and you are an instant outcast.

• There’s a high chance of backstabbing and jealousy.

• Not feeling like you live up to the standards of January and her clique.

Christina Hendricks

Memorable quote about her high school experience:

"My school days were pretty unhappy. I had the worst high school experience ever. I went to a very mean school and was bullied like crazy.”


Christina has been open about having a rough time in high school.


• Being unpopular can make you a stronger person in the long run.

• Finding your own identity at a young age.

• Developing strong friendships with people in a similar situation as you.

• You’re already an outcast, so you can totally experiment with your look (purple hair, piercings, thrift store dresses, etc.)


• Being bullied!

• Most times being “different” in high school can be extremely hard and painful.

• Social outcast, it's rough being left out of parties and dances that your classmates are all attending

• No guarantee that you will be a stronger person.
