Jon Hamm doesn’t feel like love symbol


Even though he is widely recognized as a love symbol, Jon Hamm finds the whole idea confusing and silly.

In an interview with Grazia magazine, he explained that he had been made to audition seven times for Mad Men because the show’s bosses said he ”wasn’t sexy enough”.

”The idea of being a love symbol is something I don’t relate to at all. I find it so confusing and silly,” the actor said.

Hamm has been in a relationship with actress and screenwriter Jennifer Westfeldt for 17 years but the couple aren’t planning to tie the knot.

He explained: ”I’m not against it; marriage works for a lot of people – they call it an institution for a reason.”

But the 43-year-old actor also pointed out that he is not against gay marriage.

”I think everyone should be able to get married – or not. Gay, straight, knock yourself out; if that’s your jam, do it,” he added.

    I do not find Jon Hamm sexy at all. To me he is just a well-groomed goofy faced man. I cannot understand what women find about him? Maybe his fame and money and talent?! Still, he is far from being sexy and definitely not a sex idol or something. People, open up your eyes, he is far from being handsome!
