If You Think Jon Hamm Is Sexy and You Want His Body, Come On Just Don’t Let Him Know
Sorry, Jon Hamm, but you’re sexy and you know it.
As the cover boy for Esquire UK’s May issue, the Mad Men star laments his status as a sex symbol, baffled that so many women find him and his character so hot.
“At 41 I’m like, give me a break, man, I’m no Ryan Gosling. And that’s fine. I don’t aspire to be that. That’s not my jam.” He continued, “There’s a lot of talk about, ‘Oooh, you’re so sexy!’ If people put that mantle on you, fine, but you take it with a wink and a pinch of salt.”
Jon also continues his tradition of saying bizarre, self-deprecating, and mildly anti-Mad Men things in interviews (see our guide to Sh*t Jon Hamm Says here). “I remember picking it up. Mad Men: sh**** title. AMC: network no one’s ever heard of. Two strikes. Then I read it. I said to [girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt], ‘This is the best pilot I’ve ever read in my life.’”
Isn’t that a sweet story? Even sweeter is his current stance on Don Draper, or as Jon would put it, that dead guy. “There is no Don Draper...Don Draper was blown up in a ditch in Korea. That whole ‘Be Don Draper’ thing, I feel it’s… sad. This is a fundamentally f***ed up human being.”
