Ethan Hawke’s wife worries that Ethan will bang his new costar, January Jones


As I’ve said before, January Jones has a fantastic Instagram. Like, she’s really good at posting photos often enough to be interesting, but she doesn’t go overboard. She posts selfies, pics of her dogs, pics of her style crew and she also is really good at Throwback Thursdays. January has been in New Mexico for several weeks filming a movie called Good Kill with Ethan Hawke. Soon after she arrived on set, she posted an IG of herself and Ethan (that’s the photo above). Is that a sketchy photo? Or is it just cute? Well, given what we know about Ethan and his anti-monogamy stance and given what we know about January and her “I don’t care if they’re married” stance, it seems like the photo could be misconstrued. Which is why Ethan’s wife Ryan might be worried:

Ethan Hawke’s worried wife is watching him – like a hawk! January Jones recently posted a photo of herself and Ethan on Instagram, writing that it was “a dream come true working with the incomparable Ethan Hawke!” The show of affection and admiration appears to have unnerved Ryan Hawke, Ethan’s wife of five years and mother of his daughters Clementine and Indiana.

Ryan became especially concerned after a recent interview in which Hawke said society’s views toward monogamy are “outdated”. To Ryan’s dismay, she realized that Ethan has room to roam as he shoots the war movie “Good Kill” with January in Albuquerque, NM.

“Ryan was going to stay in NYC with their children while Ethan was on location, but now she says she plans to join him on the set,” reveals an insider.

Although nothing has happened between Ethan and January, the source said: “Ryan figures if she is with him and brings their kids along, she can put out ay fires between him and January before they start.”

Ironically, Ryan was the nanny of Hawke’s two children with wife Uma Thurman before that marriage ended amid rumors of Hawke’s infidelity. Ryan began dating the actor shortly after the split.

As for January, a source warns: “Guys are drawn to January – she’s like catnip to men!”

[From The Enquirer, print edition]

Well… it sounds like Ryan has good reason to be worried, and it sounds like Ethan and January would both be up for it. I mean, historically speaking, they’ve both been up for it in different but similar circumstances. And if it happens, it happens. The thing about January is that I think she genuinely does not want to be tied down. She does not want a husband or a serious boyfriend who expects anything from her. She wants to have fun and fool around. God knows what Ethan wants. I know it’s totally wrong, but I think an affair between January and Ethan would be hot. She’s such an ice princess and he’s so emotive… it would be interesting.

January also posted this shot last weekend with the message, “Cool shot taken by Ethan just now. #imnotactingpissedhereimactuallypissed #winkyface”.

    I thought he actually looked great at the Oscars, better than I have seen him look in a long time.

  2. Dani2 says:

    If you have to worry about him cheating on you, he’s probably not worth holding on to.

  3. don't kill me i'm french says:

    I believed they had an open marriage

  4. blue marie says:

    Well, normally I would say not to worry BUT.. she might need to. She was his nanny right? That he cheated on Uma with? If so then, karma’s a b-tch ain’t it?

    • Esmom says:

      Agreed. And I sense more than co-worker camaraderie with JJ’s photos/Instagram posts.

    • Liv says:

      Of course they both would be up to it. And I have no sympathy for his wife. How could she think that the same he did to Uma wouldn’t happen to her??!!

    • Sarah says:

      Agree completely. No sympathy for her at all. If he cheats WITH you, he will cheat ON you.

    • holly hobby says:

      Oh yeah I remember this. She shouldn’t be surprised. How you got him is how you’ll lose him.

    • Kristin says:

      I couldn’t agree more. I get tired of women like his wife, Tori Spelling, Leann Rimes, etc., who got their men by having affairs with them while they were married, but then turn around and act the part of the victim when the tables are turned and suddenly they’re the poor wife whose husband cheats on them. I am a firm believer that anything that starts off in such a shady, disrespectful manner is sort of doomed from the start. Karma truly is a bitch.

  5. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Which wife?

    His current one, or……????

  6. Frida_K says:

    He is so unattractive. Painfully, off-puttingly unattractive.

    And the nanny has no cause to squawk. She knew what she was signing up for when she got on this gravy train.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Agree with Frida! He’s a lunkheads and a cheater and she knew it from Day 1.

      The pictures look guaranteed to stir the pot. Someone is either putting it out there intentionally or they don’t give a sh*t.

    • Littles says:


  7. Kaya says:

    This is so not right. She’s never been caught having an affair, and it’s all just rumors, but everyone assumes she has a “I-don’t-care-if-they’re-married” stance. People have GOT to let that go.

    • MCraw says:

      Well, that’s gossip- not 100% fool-proof. And usually, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

  8. lucy2 says:

    When a man marries his mistress, he creates a vacancy. She probably should be worried.

    • yuya says:

      But…but..she was “special”!!!

    • QQ says:

      And we KNOW January to not give an inch of a fuck if a dude is taken

      • Lady_Jane says:

        precisely! January is a weird kind of woman that finds a married/attached man extra enticing because of the “challenge” factor. The woman inside must be a bundle of massive neurosis’/insecurities to have that screwed up attraction towards the taken. Poor Claudia Schiffer.

      • Liberty says:

        From her Wiki, as pointed out by a friend just now –

        She is named after January Wayne, a character in Jacqueline Susann’s Once Is Not Enough.[5]

    • Stormsmama says:

      Well said.

    • Izzy says:

      YUP!! And with serial cheaters, how you get him is how you usually lose him…

    • Penny says:

      I once had a long chat with a notorious cheatress. She explained how hurt she was when she was betrayed and never wanted to feel that way again. The main source of her devastation is that she had been blindsighted – she had NO IDEA her boyfriend was cheating and felt she’d never be able to trust anyone ever again. And the only way to never be in that position is to never be the wife or girlfriend and always be the side dish or piece. At least she was cheating with instead of being cheated on. It’s bizarre, immature, irrational thinking, but who better to give insight into the JJ mentality than a like minded soul. So I guess you can’t be both, you have to pick a side or you become unstable and deluded – as Exhibit A.

  9. minime says:

    Oh well, that wouldn’t surprise me and certainly shouldn’t surprise his current wife, attending how they started their relationship, but most importantly attending everything he have said about monogamy.

    I used to find him cute, but his behaviour and his interviews really make him look like a man-sl*t and I don’t find that attractive. He would be lucky to score January Jones and well, she does like married men, so that might be a match made in heaven.

  10. Eva says:

    Karma is a bitch, zero sympathy for this tramp she was his childrens nanny, so had a bond with these poor kids and still helped destroy their family.

  11. paola says:

    Karma is a bitch! I bet Uma is ROFLing hard on this one.

    I know he’s a cheating douche.. but he’s been my celebrity crush since ‘Reality Bites’..

  12. MrsBPitt says:

    If I was a betting girl…I would definetly take the bet that Ethan and January will cheat! They both seem self-centered A-holes… Now, I am going to be an A-hole…if you put a wart on Ethan’s wife’s nose, wouldn’t she look like a witch…check it out…

  13. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    I think it’s just down right bitchy and way worse than the actual cheating–when you cheat with someone’s SO that you know. That is just cold, and it takes a special kind of someone to do that.

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      Unfortunately we live in a world of “I want it, and I want it now so I’m just going to take it”. Nothing else matters like the minor detail of the person having a partner/children etc. Its selfish to say the least.

      Isn’t January a mother now? I would hope that would settle her down a bit, but if any part of this story is true, it doesn’t sound like it.

    • Jayna says:

      I knew someone who was married for four years and had been trying for a baby. They seemed like such a nice, sweet couple. He was just an average guy, not Don Juan looking or acting. She finally gets pregnant. Her best friend even gave her a shower. After she had the baby, while still in the hospital, her husband comes to her and says, I want a divorce. I am in love with Best Friend (whatever her name was). She had just had a baby the day before and was completely blindsided. She had no clue an affair had been going on, and then to be betrayed by her best friend. But worse is that he wasn’t even torn about leaving her and the baby. He just waited until she had their son to tell her he was out. She went home from the hospital with the baby to an empty house, with him all moved out. I can’t imagine living through that.

      Where I used to live there was this woman who was full of herself who worked in our building. She was at that time in her late 30s I think, which seemed so old then to me. LOL I was 22. She had been married for quite a while but this is the story of how she hooked up with her present husband. Someone close to me dated a man that was best friends with the cheating husband in this scenario. Anyway, this woman who worked in my building, her first husband had left her and she was devasated. Her best friend from college invited her to come down to her state and town and stay for a while to get herself together. So that’s how she arrived to stay in our town. Her best friend was pregnant with her first child and her husband was very respected in town with a high-paying career. So she stayed in their house with them the whole pregnancy. This woman’s best friend goes into the hospital to have the baby. After she comes home, after like a month or two – I can’t remember – the husband informs her he is in love with his wife’s best friend and that he is leaving her to marry her best friend. They had been having an affair during part of her pregnancy but being the good people they are, LOL, waited until she had the baby. They got divorced and he married his wife’s best friend, the woman who worked in my building. Talk about betrayed. Here the first wife invited her best friend to stay with them because her husband left her and the best friend turns around and has an affair with her husband right under her roof while acting all fake and sweet to her face the whole time.

      How do you live with yourself doing that to someone who reached out to you during your own sad time?

      • Goofpuff says:

        well she couldn’t have done it if the husband wasn’t already an asshole. he probably was already cheating on the sly before her.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Whoa–what is WRONG with people?

      • Moi says:

        I would have been so tempted to walk up to that woman who worked in your building, stand in front of her and stare, hope she would ask why I was staring at her, and reply with “I just wanted to see what a really skanky, evil whore looked like up close” and walk away. How repulsive of her And the husband.

      • ToodySezHey says:

        Damn…the dude from the first story had that special kind of assshole gene.
        That Kfed( abandoned his preggers g/f for Brintey Spears) , Columbus Short( got busted sleeping with Britney Spears whilst travelling on tour with her, his preggers wife found out and filed for divorce), Billy Crudup( cheated on his preggers longtime gf with Claire Danes) , Arod( his wife knew while giving birth to their last child together that Arod was emotionally checked out of the marriage and in love with Madonna.)

        It takes a special kind of dude to leave their woman when she is carrying their seed.

        As for the woman in the second scenario…something like that happened in my family. One of my Aunt’s bfs had left her, and she was kind of azzed out. So my other Aunt(, lets call her Aunt B ), invited Aunt A to live with her and her bf so she could have a place to stay and regroup. At that time, Aunt B was pregnant by her live-in bf. Well, a few months go by, and suddenly, Aunt A is pregnant too, and people are scratching their heads because as far as they know, Aunt A has no bf.

        Sure enough, turns out Aunt A was sleeping with Aunt B’s bf..

        Her own sisters boyfriend, and the father of her unborn niece/nephew.


        Well, what ended up happening is, Aunt A’s baby by her sister’s bf was born stillborn. And the bf ended up being shot and killed by another woman( more than likely someone he was screwing over).

        Karma was a bytch.

  14. Kate says:

    Words can’t express how much I hate this guy.

  15. psst! says:

    So he went from Uma to that?!

  16. psst! says:

    I just peeked her instagram…wow. Puberty was good to her

  17. Heat says:

    Given his comments on his stance on monogamy, I’m quite sure his wife is aware of it. Why are we to assume that she’s sitting at home, clutching her pearls over this? Perhaps she has the same feelings as he does with regards to marriage.

  18. doofus says:

    of course he will, because he can. and he has.

    I knew him in HS and he was an a-hole back then, too.

  19. Kelly says:

    If he’s against monogamy why the hell did he ever get married? And twice at that?!

  20. shannon says:

    IMO, she signed up for that. I have always been so up in the air about the “once a cheater, always a cheater” stance, however, she married him so she knows what he’s all about. He’s publicly stated he doesn’t really believe in monogamy so chances are, she doesn’t either.

  21. LAK says:

    I don’t think the wife should worry about JJ. It’s JJ’s nanny she should be watching. Ethan does have a type……

  22. Beatrice says:

    She should worry! However, I’m not so sure that being on location with him will stop any fooling around. After all, Ms. Nanny was living under the same roof as his wife when she and Ethan had an affair. Those trailers on the set can be awfully comfy and private!!

  23. Ellie66 says:

    I had no clue they are filming in Albuquerque and I live here. :( Lol! I like January Jones she seems to not give a crap about “Hollywood” . Even though she shagged Bobby Flay and that’s just Gross!

    • booboolarue says:

      @Ellie66 me too! But now I think it explains the pretty blonde woman I saw on Nob Hill last Friday, I think it was JJ!

  24. nk868 says:

    he does not do it for me

  25. A says:

    I wouldn’t put it past them but surely they wouldn’t be instagramming themselves together if they were?? Though, now that I think about it that sort of shamelessness is pretty common with cheaters…. At least in tabloids lol

  26. sundaygal says:

    I still swoon over Ethan Hawke whenever I watch Reality Bites. Winona, too.

    Who else has a great Instagram account? January’s is aiiggght. I follow Madonna for sh*ts and giggles, but it just depresses me.

  28. Tig says:

    I think January is gorgeous, but afraid I can totally buy this theory. Hard to imagine a man going on record dissing monogamy staying monogamous!

  29. Lauren says:

    I can’t muster up any pity for any of the parties involved in this story.

  30. Penelope says:

    What goes around comes around, Dear.

    He’s looking great.

  31. Lark says:

    RME. Why don’t the tabloids ever do so and so is worried their gf/woman will cheat with Russell Crowe (who was papped Kristen Stewart style with Meg Ryan back in the day), Jude Law, Billy Murray (admitted cheater) etc.? It is always on the women… That said considering Ethan’s comments about monogamy he and his wife either have an agreement or he’s likely to have a wandering dong imo. I doubt January would go there though…she seems happy being single and with her kid…and also she got a severe beating in the press last time.

    • Jayna says:

      I think he’s pretty much saying I’m happy where I am for now, but who knows in the future. His children are young right now, and I think he really loves his family life and won’t rock it. He likes his settled life in NY and busy with their two kids and having his other two children from Uma half the time also. He’s busy and Ryan makes a nice home for him and the kids so that he can go work. But once those kids are older and he hits a different phase of his life, in with the new, out with the old.

  32. Bailie says:

    Every time I see him I want him to take a 2 hour bath in bleach.

    He is just icky to me an d his wife looks the same way to me.

    January jones is stunningly beautiful.

  33. Jayna says:

    I really don’t see what he saw in the nanny. She looks rough.

    Can I be the nanny to Liam Neeson’s teenage sons? Can my nanny’s quarters be right next to dad’s bedroom?

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Don’t get slut shanked, missy.

      You amateur! My room isn’t next to his at all—I’m sleeping in his bed! I just have an extra large closet next to OUR room…

  34. taxi says:

    Wifey looks like something he found near the bins behind a cheap diner. Plus she has old-lady gnarly hands.

  35. mzizkrizten says:

    I had sympathy until the article reminded me ol Ryan got her prize dishonarably… which means she’ll lose the prize the same way.

  36. kitty-bye says:

    As if JJ would want that?

  37. Mrs.Martin says:

    Good god his wife is hideous …sorry I would be worried about January too!!!!!

  38. Jayna says:

    Interesting. I went back and read interviews and stuff around that time. I couldn’t remember it all.

    It wasn’t the nanny that came out during the split. It was a rumored affair with a young 22-year-old model in Canada while filming a movie he was in and he responded to the allegation that if only the problems in their marriage were that simple they would still be together. It seems he pulled the plug on the marriage from what I can tell. His interview said they married too young but that both of them having a driving ambition is what did them in. I remember Uma was a hot commodity around this time, even more so than him and that Kill Bill director was obsessed with her in his movies.

    Uma in an interview said she was emotionally ripped apart by the breakup and said they were civil for the kids because that was what was most important but that her self-esteem was shot and still coming to terms with the end of her marriage. She was dating by then. Oprah asked her if the cheating rumors were true. She said there was some of that, but that there were a lot of issues in the marriage, but that was the way I guess he chose to show how unhappy he was. Meaning I guess the cheating wasn’t the problem in the marriage. What I got from her comments was they had a lot of problems and at the end that was how he acted out his unhappiness in their marriage and pretty much wanted out. She said she had to just focus on her failures in the marriage. She hoped that one day she would recognize the man Ethan Hawke used to be because she didn’t know him anymore. In another interview later she said there were problems in their marriage, but they were still functioning as a family with the kids, so it still was a hard breakup for her because her identity was tied up in it for eight years of her adult life.

    I think it was later when he started seeing the nanny after the divorce that all the rumors came out he had been seeing the nanny during the marriage. He has always denied an affair with the nanny. Even if it wasn’t a physical affair, obviously he had gotten close to her.

    I always found it odd that Uma dated those billionaires. I always thought she would date someone who was in theater or movies again. She said four years after the divorce in another iinterview that she was just feeling like herself again, that losing a marriage is one thing, but it’s the losing your famiiy that is hard to get over.

    Fast forward to November 2013. They were both at Sundance Film Festival seen hanging out and being friendly and then met up to take their daughter skiing together and had lunch together. She by that time had her new baby, 18 months old, and he, of course, is married to the nanny. I guess they get along now.

  39. Reg says:

    This is old news, the blind items already confirmed they did it, but he doesn’t take
    This fling seriously, so mrs shoudnt worry.
    Wife looks hedious in the picture, they are totally mismatched couple.

  40. SO True says:

    I don’t mind Ethan Hawke; he speaks the truth and he was awesome in a whole bunch of films (that b-grade vampire movie, Training Day, etc).

  41. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    Sounds like Ethan wanted a wife without career ambitions because he said that’s what really tore him and Uma apart.

    I find that kind of pathetic in a man but that’s his choice.

  42. Ginger says:

    I can’t help but think this is true. Ethan looks so much like my ex-fiance who was also a cheating db. I think Ethan is a good actor but I get skeevy vibes from him. Not sure if it’s because he actually is shady or if I’m biased. Still, it’s a fact that the guy is a cheater so the story could have some credibility.

  43. silly you says:

    those two sluts will be bumping ‘em soon, if they aren’t already. what’s-her-name shouldn’t worry too much tho…jj seems like a hit-it-and-quit-it type. she’ll give him back when she’s done with him.

  44. Kristin says:

    On a totally unrelated topic, his wife’s tattoos are HIDEOUS. She needs to do a guest spot on Bad Ink and get that s*&t taken off.

  45. KateBush says:

    I think he’s pretty hot! Wife is not a looker.
    I have a feeling their marriage won’t be a long one…

  46. hannah* says:

    Erm, I think that photo is dodgy as f-ck. I would not feel good about that if I were his wife at all. However, I have absolutely no sympathy for any of the parties involved. I get the impression that the marriage will probably end up lasting quite a while or at least as long as she tolerates his cheating (which I’m sure he does and will with JJ in this case). I believe that Ethan is most comfortable with an ambitionless wife who isn’t particulalry dynamic or a real equal to him career-wise/financially or intellectually, i.e. someone like a nanny. I think that’s why things between him and Uma didn’t work out. I just think he’s a really low quality person generally. A was renting out a bunch of Ethan Hawke dvd’s a couple of years ago (I had a major crush on him) when the video store clerk told me that his sister is an hair hostess and had served Hawke on a plane once. Apparently he was a bombastic rude asshole to her and she was totally disgusted by him. Unfortunately he didn’t give any further details and I didn’t ask, silly me!!

  47. ToodySezHey says:

    Its that old saying…how you get him, is how you lose him.

    I wanna have sympathy for Ryan but…..she knows how she did Uma.

    And given the interview he gave, how can she be suprised?
