She added, "proud to be a part if this film in ANY WAY!!"

Much like the rest of the world, stars January Jones and Alison Brie were pleasantly surprised by the interesting tidbit of info. The Glow star exclaimed, "Whoa," while her former Mad Men co-star asked, "This is important. How come I didn't know this?" Same!

Comedian Whitney Cummings added, "This is blowing my mind." 

But wait, there's more! According to the star's IMDB, she has been the voice for commercials for Baskin-Robbins ice cream from 2012, in addition to a voiceover role in a 1997 TV commercial for Visa credit card "James Bond."
