    under the jaded layer

    I don't understand the underlined. ( p 421 in Pelican Brief )

    And a different man was rubbing her feet. He was an ass at first, cocky and abrasive, a typical reporter. But he was thawing rapidly, and under the jaded layer she was finding a warm man who obviously liked her very much.

    I'd appreciate your help!

    Re: under the jaded layer

    All I can think off is "under the worn outer shell"
    (The man looked tired and not caring much.)

    To jade: To wear out, as by overuse or overindulgence
