The Details cover man for October is none other than the deliciously handsome Jon Hamm.
In his interview, the Mad Men actor says:
“I never minded standing up and looking like an idiot, which is tremendously helpful in this industry. I don’t know how the Twilight kids or Miley Cyrus handle it. You make one bad decision and people in Thailand Twitter about it."
When talking about his new movie The Town, Hamm reassures us the movie doesn't rely on cheesy gimmicks. He says, “There’s not a lot of candy for the Twitter-obsessed. It just deals with adult shit - no werewolves, no vampires."
He also talks about being an actor in El Lay:
“L.A. represents opportunity. And, as has been proven over and over in the current media landscape, it doesn’t take much for them to put you on TV. If that’s all you want you can just be on The Bachelor or The Real Housewives or whatever show just wants oversized personalities, ridiculous behavior and zero dignity. When you try to learn how to act, you approach it with respect. But if you just want to be famous…that’s not much different than porn. ‘I’m a movie star!’ Well, no, no you’re not. You’re a porn star, and that’s completely different.”
Even pal Sarah Silverman can't believe Hamm's overnight success. After playing a cable guy on her Comedy Central show in 2007, she says:
“When I turned in to Mad Men, I couldn’t believe he was this smoldering, brooding, sexual man. I was like ‘Oh my God—that’s Hamm!’ To me, he’s just this super-silly idiot. He’s one of those very few actors who are comedian-compatible.”
And we love it!! Here's hoping we see seksi Jon back on SNL again!
