Who do people hate the most on the show?
People are very, very hard on Betty. I think it’s because she behaves that way, and she’s beautiful. There are lots of factors. Don cheated on her for years, and people hated her. I never understood that.
And people hate Pete a lot of times. I know that as the experience of looking in the mirror. You can go to the supermarket and see 90 percent of the people in line at the cash register do something Pete Campbell-like before they leave the store. Pete has his virtues, but they’re very hard on him. They really feel superior to him. And it’s amusing to me, because they’re not.
