Jon Hamm

Talks about his career with Mr. Porter

October 13, 2016 - Mr. Porter

This is the man who played Don Draper, the most iconic male in perhaps the most iconic show in the Golden Age of TV. He’s the man who recalibrated masculinity, who repopularised the old fashioned, whom women wanted to bed and men wanted to be, even though everyone knew what he was selling was a lie, that he was, in Mr Hamm’s words, “a fundamentally fucked-up human being”. He’s among the most objectified males on the planet. “It is not easy having immediate and huge-scale fame thrust upon you. I’m a pretty shy person. I like talking to people one-on-one, but I do not like people taking pictures of me with 400mm lenses across the street. It’s mystifying to me why we give that any time in our culture.”
