January Jones had the best response to a potential tabloid exposé

On Tuesday, the "Mad Men" star shared a screenshot of an email from the National Enquirer seeking comment for an upcoming story the magazine was writing about Jones's friends who are supposedly worried about her "attention-grabbing bikini pictures and social media posts."

The email read: "To Whom It May Concern: The National Enquirer is preparing to publish a story which reports January Jones has worried friends with her series of attention-grabbing bikini pictures and social media posts. Sources claim her content smacks of a 'desperate cry for attention' and note how her acting work appears to have dried up before then pandemic took hold."

In response, Jones captioned the screenshot: "S---. They've discovered my secret. Consider this my public apology to my 'friends.'"

Her friends and followers quickly joined in on the joke including Chrissy Teigen who replied to the screenshot. She said: "It was me. I'm worried!!!!!" to which Jones replied "I'M FINE," and Teigen finally quipped "you aren't. I'll try the enquirer!"

Jones' "Mad Men" costar Kiernan Shipka commented: "It worries me how hot you are, yes."

A few hours later, Jones posted another picture in a red bikini, subtly holding out her middle finger, along with the caption: "Had to do it. #DESPERATE."
