Does January Jones Have a Husband? Inside the Love Life of the Actress Once Linked to Ashton Kutcher and Jim Carrey
After Ashton Kutcher was January Jones' boyfriend for a few years in the '90s, the former couple was credited with inventing the iconic prom pose during red-carpet appearances. Since then, January Jones' dating history has ranged from comedians to oil heirs.
When the public was first introduced to Jones, she was a model. She proved she was a woman of more than one trade as she quickly broke into the Hollywood acting scene and landed one of her most notable roles as Betty Draper in "Mad Men."
Over the years, while the "Mad Men" actress has been linked to reality TV heartthrobs, action stars, and musicians, she kept pursed lips when it came to the details about her personal life– including the identity of her son's father.
Ashton Kutcher Accused January Jones of Cheating on Him with Bruce Willis
Kutcher was a brown-eyed, baby-faced young man when he moved to Los Angeles in 1998 and caught the eye of the creators of "That '70s Show," earning him the role of Michael Kelso.
While his career was on the rise, he fell in love with a model from South Dakota – Jones. It is unclear how the exes met, but as two young people breaking into the industry, they were assumed to have run in the same circles.
By 2000, they took the next step in their relationship and moved in together. Since Instagram was not a thing when Jones and Kutcher were dating, red-carpet appearances were the rave for couples in the early 2000s.
Jones and Kutcher were given all the credit for popularizing the prom pose during their public appearances, and the pair dated for several years before the public caught wind of their split in 2001.
Although it has been over two decades since Jones and Kutcher went their separate ways, the cause of their breakup remained unclear, despite dramatic speculation.
In 2009, during a GQ interview, Jones spoke candidly of her first unnamed boyfriend when she moved to Los Angeles, who was unsupportive of her budding acting career. She said:
"The guy I was dating when I first got to LA was not supportive of my acting. He only has nice things to say now. If anything, I should thank him because the minute you tell me I can't do something, that's when I'm most motivated."
The GQ journalist Jones had spoken to assumed the unidentified man Jones spoke of was Kutcher, and years later, Jones finally spoke on the matter.
During an appearance on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" in 2016, a caller asked Jones if she had anything to say to her famous ex.
Reluctant to go into great detail, Jones set the record straight and said she never mentioned Kutcher, or anyone, by name. When the show's co-host pressed Jones for more answers, she stuck to her guns and simply smiled.
Speculation around Jones and Kutcher's breakup only heightened when Kutcher's ex-wife, Demi Moore, released her memoir, "Inside Out: A Memoir," in 2019 and revealed Kutcher had suspected Jones of being unfaithful to him with her co-star.
In 2001, Jones starred alongside Bruce Willis, Moore's second ex-husband, in the comedy "Bandits." During this time, the two actors grew close, so close that Kutcher was convinced the co-stars were having an affair during the production of their film.
In her book, Moore wrote that while sitting beside Jones at an event, she asked the "Mad Men" actress about Kutcher's accusations, which Jones allegedly firmly denied. In Moore's book, she recalled Jones saying:
"Are you serious? I told him (Kutcher) a hundred times I didn't want that old man (Willis)!"

Jones and Carrey's relationship began in 2002. The "Dumb and Dumber" actor is sixteen years Jones' senior, and they dated for a few months before calling things off after Jones was rumored to have cheated.
According to reports, Jones was also in a relationship with Brandon Davis, an oil heir from California known for rubbing shoulders with Hollywood's finest.
After his brief relationship with Jones, Carrey moved on to Danish model Anine Binge, whom he dated for a year, and other actresses such as Ginger Gonzaga and Jenny McCarthy.

One of Groban's representatives said Jones and Groban had intentions of remaining friends around the same time Jones was spotted enjoying a night out with Lukas Haas and other friends in Las Vegas. In 2016, the "You Raise Me Up" singer reflected on his relationship with Jones and said:
"We dated for about two and a half years, and we were madly in love. It was definitely my longest relationship."
January Jones Once Said Jason Sudeikis Didn't See Her Naked
Sudeikis and Jones reportedly met during her appearance as a host on "Saturday Night Live" in November 2010, when Sudeikis was already a show regular. They were paired on multiple sketches, including one centered around the classic fart joke.
By July 2010, they sparked dating rumors after they were spotted "making out all night" at an ESPYS after party. They also grew close after spending time on the set of one of Sudeikis' movies.
That same year, Jason Sudeikis appeared on "Lopez Tonight." When Lopez asked Sudeikis if he had seen Jones naked, the actor initially said he did not want to say before quipping, "I'm kidding. I do want to get into it! I do, and I have."
The couple was each other's dates to the 2010 Emmy Awards when Jones set the record straight about whether or not Sudeikis had seen her in her birthday suit. She said:
"He's never seen me naked, nor will he after those comments."
The exes were on and off for a few months before distance became the cause of their breakup. A source confirmed the news, revealing that Sudeikis was shooting "SNL" in New York while Jones was filming "Mad Men" in Los Angeles.
January Jones and Will Forte's Relationship Lasted Only a Few Months
Jones and Forte had been acquaintances since 2008 when Forte was still an actor on "SNL." They crossed paths again when they were cast to star in "The Last Man on Earth."
Their relationship caught the public's eye in 2015, four years after Jones gave birth to her son, Xander. She did not disclose her son's father, although it was believed to be Sudeikis, as he was her last publicly known relationship.
During a red carpet appearance, when an interviewer asked Jones how she found it acting alongside her rumored boyfriend, the actress said:
"It's a blast. It's such a funny group of people, and we just have a lot of fun."
However, the fun only lasted five months as Jones and Forte decided to call things off in September 2015. They both attended the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards on September 20 but avoided awkward run-ins.

After her sister persuaded Jones to go on a date, Viall made it into her good books, but nothing more than juicy "The Bachelor" details were shared as the fling was very brief. Viall said:
"I briefly dated January Jones. We're still friends, and we're still cool."
