January Jones has been keeping busy while quarantining in her South Dakota home. The actress best known for playing Betty Draper in 'Mad Men' has been sharing steamy bikini pictures of herself to her Instagram page which has a million followers.

The Golden Globes and Primetime Emmy nominated actress is not letting staying inside get in her way of 'staying sane' and is developing new skill sets. The 42-year-old announced a week ago that she's adding the French language and synchronized swimming to her skills and on Saturday afternoon, she proved that she's made good on her promise. She posted a photo of herself in a bikini with huge blue stars on it. 

Busting out a number of animated moves, both above and below the water, doing ballet extensions and leg kicks here and there. She also did an impressive handstand under the water for a few seconds. She also did a twirl and completed her routine with a wink and an eyebrow raise. Her routine was graceful but not up to the standards of synchronized swimmers courtesy moves that admittedly resembled an amateur martial artist. 

She confessed in the caption, "Pro tip: Synchronized Swimming is easier when you're solo. (my hands were adamant about the karate theme, it’s not my fault)." 

Jones's Instagram may be valued at a million subscribers but the actress's net worth is much more massive. She is estimated at a whopping $10 million with her per episode paycheck amounting roughly to $100,000, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Jones's stint on 'Mad Men' had turned her into a household name. The show ended this very day, five years ago in 2015 and since then Jones moved on to play a lead role on 'The Last Man on Earth', a Fox comedy that was on air between 2015 and 2018. Before appearing on 'Mad Men', Jones had appeared in films as 'Anger Management', 'The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada', 'Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights' and 'We Are Marshall'. Since landing her role on 'Mad Men', she's appeared in a couple of big Hollywood blockbusters: 'Unknown' starring Liam Neeson and 'X-Men: First Class' starring Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy. She also appeared in Netflix drama 'Spinning Out' that premiered earlier this year and was canceled after Season 1. Jones is all set to return for Season 2 of another Netflix drama, 'The Politician', in June 2020.
