Jon Hamm has said that he does not consider himself to be particularly attractive.
The actor stated that while he appreciates compliments about his appearance, he has never paid much attention to how he looks and was always more concerned with being a good actor.
The 41-year-old explained in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
“I don’t necessarily think of myself like the handsome guy. That’s reserved for Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds and those guys.”
“It’s certainly nice when people say nice things about you, don’t get me wrong. I guess I never really thought of myself that way. I just wanted to be a regular person and try to portray parts as varied as I could.”
The Mad Men star went on to say that he occasionally struggles with fame, as the lifestyle poses a stark difference to his normal, down-to-earth personality.
“It’s a weird experience to go through something like this, especially when it happens so fast. It seemed like Mad Men sort of hit overnight and was this crazy sensation,” he said.
“We won the Golden Globe and I won the Golden Globe, and we won the Emmy and all this stuff happened, and you think, ‘Oh my God this is a crazy swirl’. I live a pretty stable life. I mean, I have a relationship and a house and a dog, and it’s kind of like, well, now we are living a life that has this weirdness in it. It is a strange shift.”
