"Extra" correspondent Jerry Penacoli sat down with the lovely January Jones, currently starring in the action thriller  "Unknown"  -- and talked about dating in the spotlight.

(Editor's Note: January Jones played the wife of Coach Red Dawson's wife inn "We Are Marshall," the 2006 movie partially made in Huntington, WV concerning the Marshall University air disaster.)

"I think it's tough to date in general," the actress, who recently split with "SNL's" Jason Sudekis, explained. "But maybe it's hard because I live such a transient lifestyle. Never in one place for too long. Plus, I can't commit... all over the place. It's me." She quipped, "I'm like Queen Elizabeth I; I'm going to marry myself."

The "Mad Men" star plays another ice queen in "Unknown," as Liam Neeson's supposed wife who turns on him, but the actress says she'd love to do a comedy someday. "When someone writes one that's funny, I'll do it."

Jones is excited about her upcoming role in "X-Men: First Class," playing mutant Emma Frost. "Now THAT'S a comedy," she laughed. How so? "Interesting outfits. It was really fun, though. I've never done anything like it before. All the stunts and costumes -- and such a cool group of actors."

"Unknown" crashes into theaters this Friday. "X-Men: First Class" mutates in theaters June 3.
