With his Blues cap, bro-ish saunter, and generic outfit (a blue American Apparel shirt, black jeans), Hamm goes mostly unrecognized in the restaurant.
For much of his life, he says, he’s been “oblivious” to fashion, but that changed when he began suiting up for his role in Mad Men. RELATED: Jon Hamm’s Changing Looks Does Hamm pay much attention to what women wear? “I’m a heterosexual male, and I love a lady with style.” Aside from a few “ridiculous” fashion trends that leave him bewildered, Hamm likes it when a woman is confident enough to express her individuality through her clothes.
He’s one of the few actors he knows with zero social-media presence.
“The point of life is not to put dog ears on yourself and post it online for everyone to see,” he says.
And he still gets a lot out of his shrink appointments.
Hamm, who lost both his parents to illness before he finished college, says there’s some truth to the theory that many actors’ careers are essentially lifelong attempts to heal their childhood wounds.
In 2015 he split with his partner of 18 years, writer-director Jennifer Westfeldt.Hamm credited Westfeldt for her support through his time in rehab. It’s been quite a week for the Hollywood romance rumor mill—and it’s only Wednesday!This month he turns villainous in Baby Driver, a heist film–cum–romance in which Ansel Elgort’s character drives the getaway car for a gang of bank robbers played by Jamie Foxx and Kevin Spacey, among others.Hamm had fun strutting around with his arsenal of guns, but the biggest draw for him was English director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead), who propels the story with innovative editing and musical flourishes, even synching the soundtrack with the gunshots.
