She's landed herself a role on the most lauded series the small screen has to offer, and Jessica Pare now finds herself gracing the cover of the latest issue of New York Magazine.

The 29-year-old Canadian actress is dressed in a Rochas top, Jet Jeans, Jimmy Choo shoes and earrings by Craig Evan Small Estate Jewelry for the flirty Zachary Scott shot front page while talking about topics including her topless scene in "Hot Tub Time Machine" and gig as Megan Draper on "Mad Men".

Highlights from Miss Pare's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to New York Magazine!

On being mostly known 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 adds, “I think tits can be funny. Please don’t make that the headline.”

On all of the fuss over her teeth:
“I forget about them because they’re in my face and they do their job just great. I never get anything stuck in them.”

On thinking her 'Mad Men' role was short term:
"Every time I did an episode, I didn't know if I would be back. I was just happy to sit in the background if they did a scene in the reception area. I kept saying, 'Two words: closed casket'. It (season premiere) opens on a closed casket. Pan up to Don, bereaved, winks at a blonde down the aisle. Bye-bye, Megan."
