January Jones, Shark

Who would ever have imagined that January Jones is brave enough to jump into the ocean to swim with sharks?

But that's exactly what she did recently in the Bahamas with Oceana, an environmental group dedicated to protecting the world's oceans. She hoped to send a message that sharks are not only vital to ocean life, but they're also not as scary as most people think.

"It's exhilarating," Jones told me yesterday at Variety's Power of Women luncheon, where she was honored for her work with Oceana. "They're beautiful creatures and to be in that close proximity with them was a dream come true."

The Mad Men blond bombshell, who looked her usual stunning self in a black BCBG dress, isn't the only star we've spotted out and about recently. Keep reading for some Katherine Heigl baby cuteness, Ashley Greene's sort-of night with Gerard Butler and so much more...
