Mad Men Season 6 Spoilers: Megan Is a Star — With a Weight Problem?
Betty Draper Francis had weight complaints on Mad Men Season 5 — not that Betty has ever been happy about anything — but Megan Draper?
When we left Megan on Season 5, she was acting in a commercial Don helped her land. It sounds like she'll stay on that track into Season 6, which starts April 7 on AMC.
As E! News teased, "Remember Megan's fledgling acting career? As season six opens, it's going well enough that Don's latest wife gets recognized by a fan and asked for her autograph. She's thrilled — at least until the fan makes a comment about her weight." Her weight? A while back, we saw some photos from Season 6, showing Don and Megan, apparently still married, on the beach together in Hawaii. She's wearing a bikini that seems to show her looking just fine. Maybe the comment is that she's gotten too thin?
But that's interesting that Megan is becoming a bit of a star. How does Don feel about that?
Showrunner Matthew Weiner previously told Entertainment Weekly, "Megan’s independence was really a disappointment for [Don]. It really changed his fantasy of what that relationship would be. Is he threatened by it? Is that the thing that drives him to be unfaithful? I don’t know. [...] A lot of last season was told from the outside of Don, seeing him try to act like the person who was in that relationship. And there was supposed to be something about that last moment of [the Season 5 finale] where Don turns to the camera where you are back on the inside with him and I can say that it is an internal story this season. It’s what I’m interested in this point."
