'Mad Men's' Jessica Pare may just punch you if you recognize her on the street


"Mad Men" star Jessica Pare may still be getting the hang of being part of a high-profile show and the trappings of fame that go with that.

As she recounted to Conan O'Brien on "Conan" Thursday (May 1), she can get rather excited when fans recognize her in public. In one recent encounter, she says that when a woman asked her if she was Megan Draper, she responded so enthusiastically that she punched the woman in the shoulder. Whoops. Pare explains the encounter in the video above.

Presumably the punch was followed with profuse apologies. Pare, a native of Montreal, also tells O'Brien that Canadian politeness is ingrained in her. Take a look:


"Mad Men" airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT Sundays on AMC.
