The Jessica Pare New York Magazine May 21, 2012 photos revolve around an article that talks about the actress’ rise to prominence through her part on AMC’s Mad Men. The New York magazine cover refers to Jessica Pare as an Internet meme, which means: “a concept that spreads via the Internet”. That is pretty accurate.

What surged the interest in Jessica Pare on Mad Men last season:
Don’s sudden proposal at the end of season four to Paré’s Megan—a 25-year-old secretary with whom he’d shared little more than sex on his office couch (while he was in what seemed to be a promising relationship with a more age-appropriate intellectual peer, Dr. Faye Miller)—was the shock heard round the Internet in the fall of 2010. Our Malaysian friend might not have been tactful, but she’d only said what everyone was thinking: What the hell was up with that story line?
Jessica Pare this season on Mad Men:
In the season premiere, Megan surprises her uncomfortable husband with a birthday party and an erotically charged rendition of the French ditty “Zou Bisou Bisou” performed in front of his co-workers. The clip went viral and turned Paré, a virtual unknown outside of her native Montreal, into an instant star.
…the vinyl single of “Zou Bisou Bisou” released the morning after the season premiere; it quickly went to No. 1 on Billboard’s World Music chart.
How Jessica Pare’s career has changed because of Mad Men:
Playing Mrs. Draper, she admits, “was definitely a major upswing in my career.” It’s the biggest thing to happen to her since she briefly became Montreal’s “It” girl at 19, after landing the lead in Canadian auteur Denys Arcand’s 2000 film Stardom, about a supermodel. Americans know her mostly for a minute-long topless scene in 2010’s Hot Tub Time Machine. “I cross into the States from Canada a lot, and the border guards always say, ‘You’re an actor, what have you done?’ I always try Mad Men, but I guess it’s not our target audience. So then I’m like, ‘Hot Tub Time Machine?’ And they’re like, ‘We love that movie!’?”
She doesn’t regret it. “I think tits can be funny,” she says. “Please don’t make that the headline.”
