That’s not the point! The point is that I want you to be able to feel the 1920s and believe that this is the way things were. The 20s are full of interesting people. They wanted freedom: they wanted to be themselves. My grandmother is a dressmaker and she always wore what she wanted. At the turn of the 20th century things like the “dress-up” style in magazines did not exist. In all seriousness, I think the biggest difference between today’s world and that of the 20s was the number of women in the 20th century: there were more than 200.

How do you think feminism has changed society over the years?
A lot of the women that I know are so passionate and they don’t know what to do in that sphere, and so I understand it. I get it. I get that.

Can you tell us more about the “Mad Men” experience? Will you watch the last couple in succession?
In the way that television shows come together over a 24-hour period, I think season five will be the one that’s the most emotional. I think everyone involved will be incredibly proud of it, but it won’t be what people remember.
And do you like what you’re watching?
I’ve said this before, but I’m going to tell it to people who really don’t understand this art form. A classic movie like “Dirty Dancing” is like reading a book, but I love “Mad Men.” It’s like something that was just born. I read the first few
