January Jones thinks the paparazzi are the "best security system ever".

The 'Mad Men' actress - who is expecting a baby in autumn, although she is yet to disclose who the father is - feels "safe" when she is followed by photographers trying to get a shot of her performing daily tasks.

She told The Sun newspaper: "They're always taking pictures while I'm walking my dog and shopping, which I can't imagine is very interesting.

"The weird thing is, it kind of makes me feel safe. I live alone and I feel like they're always there, always watching.

"If someone were to come in and rob me, there are photographers. It's like the best security system ever."

The 'X-Men: First Class' actress - whose relationship with 'Saturday Night Live' star Jason Sudeikis ended earlier this year - revealed she would like to go out with an "interesting" guy, but she admitted it is tough to find love.

She added: "I would love to find an interesting man to date but people don't seem to date so much any more. It's more of a hanging out process.

"It's hard to find romance, the kind of love story that carries you away. I would love to have that. I'm pretty idealistic when it comes to love."
