Jon Hamm Plays Pool in His Boxer Shorts For Details

Handsome Jon Hamm breaks out of Don Draper mode for the October cover of Details magazine. Inside he talks fast cars, his surprising sense of humor, and what made him fall in love with California, while some of his co-workers and friends had only glowing praise for the Mad Men star. He's currently at the Toronto Film Festival promoting The Town, which is the type of role he still thinks, is pretty surreal to land. He also has a few thoughts about the starlets of today in all their vampire-loving mania. Here are highlights:

  • On fame: "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 be on The Bachelor or The Real Housewives or whatever show just wants oversized personalities, ridiculous behavior, and zero dignity. . . I don't know. When you try to learn how to act, you approach it with respect. But if you just want to be famous . . . that's not that much different than porn. 'I'm a movie star!' Well, no, you're not. You're a porn star, and that's completely different. And you know, hey, mazel tov—porn probably built half the houses out here, but you're selling your dignity in a way that I feel I'm not. And once you sell it, it's gone. You ain't getting it back."
  • On The Town: "It's almost like an old Hollywood movie. It's got a love story, it's got a crime element, but it's very much for adults. There's not a lot of candy for the Twitter-obsessed. It just deals with adult shit—no werewolves, no vampires. Yet . . . they're retooling it for 3D."
  • On Mad Men: "If this show had been on any of the major networks, I never would have been cast, ever, period, done, never, no way. They would want someone like Rob Lowe who's got a proven track record. I would've gotten all the way to the end . . . and then I wouldn't get cast. . . I would have been perfectly happy, I think, continuing my career the way it was. Just being that guy in shows. I probably could have had a very nice career doing that. And still may, honestly. The big book ain't written yet."
  • On the younger stars: "Absolutely, I don't know how the Twilight kids or Miley Cyrus or whoever handle it. You fuck up, make one bad decision, and people in Thailand Twitter about it. . . I'm old, I'm boring. I usually just duck the paparazzi. It's literally someone waiting for you to pick your nose or scratch yourself. I'm sorry, I scratched my balls—who doesn't do that? You're really going to run that story? What the f*ck?! Everyone has picked their nose at one point in their life too."
