On food: "When I met Beau [her Canadian makeup artist], he said something like "I just want to have a caftans-and-casseroles day,” and I said, “That’s my life.” All I do is wear caftans at home and if I’m not going to one of the awards shows, I’ll invite my girlfriends over and make casseroles. I do a really good chicken divan. Broccoli spears, chicken and Velveeta and bread crumbs, and listen, you can try to replace the Velveeta, you can try to class it up, but it is not as good! I love to cook. My husband is an amazing cook as well. When I’m working, he cooks and when he’s working, I cook. He’s kind of surpassed me recently. I got him a butchering class for Valentine’s Day. He’s been curing meats and making his own pastrami and bacon. He’s at an elevated status. I just reap the benefits."

On Canada: "I’ve always felt very at home there and I found that the people were very warm in Toronto and Halifax, where there are some great little restaurants. They let me come behind the bar and taught me to shuck oysters. We drove down to Peggy’s Cove and Cape Breton, did the Celtic Colours celebration. It was so outrageously beautiful. I do seem to surround myself with Canadians. And Toronto is one of my favourite cities. If I thought I could work there as much and that I wasn’t gonna freeze my butt off, I’d probably live up there."

On awards shows: "Once you’re at these things you have a good time and it’s fun, but the process of getting there sometimes is not. You’re like, “I just wanna stay home! I wanna stay home!” I had to go to work at 7 a.m. on the Monday after the Oscars so I watched it on my couch."

On her favourite designers: "There are definitely designers that I just love and I just know work really well with my figure. L’Wren Scott, Vivienne Westwood, Zac Posen, Carolina Herrera. Those are designers that you’ll always see me wear again and again."

On her popular Mad Men character: "Joan has a major support system, which is awesome. I think the funniest thing is that a lot of times people will call out 'Joanie' in the grocery store. That's not my name but I know you're talking to me. I think it's sweet because really only one person calls me Joanie, and that's Roger."

On getting very familiar with Joan: "I feel like I know her so well. In the beginning, a script would come out and I'd think, 'Oh Joan's the kind of people that would do that. Interesting. I don't know if I like Joan!' In the first season you saw this bossy, gossipy, sassy girl who is now all of those things but is more sensitive and has gotten knocked down and gotten back up again, has friends and lovers and has a child and has an ex-husband, and she's just many more things so she's even more fun to play."
