Jon Hamm for GQ UK Magazine

Pretty:

Jon-Hamm-GQ-UK-September-2014-Issue-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-1“Mad Men’ star Jon Hamm covers the September 2014 issue of GQ UK magazine photographed by Gavin Bond.

On carving a successful career post-Mad Men: “There’s no road map for this. You look at someone like Matthew McConaughey – ten years ago, you wouldn’t have said he’s going to be an Oscar-winning actor, you know? The guy from Failure To Launch? You’d have been laughed out of the room. You look at a person’s success like that and think: God speed. And hope you’re given the opportunity. It’s hard because Hollywood is a lot of things, but it’s not the biggest risk taker.”

On the attention he receives from playing Don Draper: “I can literally be walking through Central Park and every third person will be like, ‘Can I have a kiss?’ No! Absolutely not! And Jennifer [Westfeldt, Hamm's long-term partner] will be right there! It doesn’t make you feel good. I’m like: how were you raised?”

On leaving Mad Men behind: “We all want to know what that final episode says, and how it says it. And it’ll be really hard. A decade of all of our lives. John Slattery was saying just the other night, what would we all have done without this show? It’s changed our lives so profoundly. And of course the unspoken thing is: what are we going to do next? And no one wants to think about that.”

Pretty.

If that’s not a trick of the light on the cover, he is going to look stunning as a silver-haired man. We’re kind of looking forward to it.

      Because thighs.

      • MartyBellerMask

        This is why Jon Hamm’s style > Don Draper’s style. Because THIGHS.

        • E. Sevilla

          jon hamm’s style > everyone else’s style because thighs, and because he hates underwear. god bless him.

    • boweryboy

      What a boring editorial. Also, I never noticed his HUGE hair.

      • gingerella

        It’s not normally that huge. They Bob’s Big Boy-ed it.

      • czarina

        That’s not the ONLY thing that is HUGE!

      • conlakappa

        It looks like Romney trying to look like Hamm looking like Romney and it got stuck at just hair product.

        • suzq

          Except he’s not using the ironing board as a dinner table.

    • NMMagpie

      Jon Hamm… the man is FOIN.

      • Kent Roby

        I love me some Hamm and cheese!

    • crash1212

      And it’s not even Sausage Friday. *swoon* He’s such a rare man – exceedingly good looking, seemingly grounded, funny, goofy, smart…I do believe he’s the entire package. *wink*

      • The Versatile Chef

        I see what you did there.

        • MarandaGodbolteam

          I just >­OPEN NEXT TAB FOR MORE INFO AND HELP

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Know what I mean? Nudge, nudge. Damn, but he is fine.

    • hughman

      That cover looks like they just photoshopped his head on some Model Body. Yikes.

      • Gatto Nero

        Yes, and even his face is altered. Pity. They needn’t have changed a thing.

        • hughman

          His head looks too big and the angle of his shoulders to his head is off. It’s pretty obvious.

          • halleygee

            Also notice his hands compared to the photo where he’s ironing. Photoshop crazy.

    • Gatto Nero

      The ironing board shot is ridiculous. But those legs are killer.

      • sienna elm

        It’s just there to show that Jon Hamm is a man who can pull off stripes, polka dots and diamonds all in the same outfit! ;)

      • MK03

        But his sense of humor makes him even hotter.

        • Gatto Nero

          Yes. They could have come up with something better, but I love that he doesn’t take himself too seriously. That’s what made him so great on SNL and 30 Rock, too.

          • MK03

            RIGHT?? was like “I already can’t have this man, why must you toy with me by being both hot AND funny??”

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            And in Bridesmaids.

        • BJsince84

          And I’ve met him and he was absolutely the sweetest guy ever. He came over to our table at a restaurant (after we had sent him some port after he was finished with his dinner) and talked to each of us separately for about five minutes, shook our hands, and even gave my friend’s mom a hug. Needless to say, she was freaking out. Best celeb experience I’ve had.

          • Heather

            I would have dissolved in a puddle.

          • MK03

            OMG I AM SO JEALOUS.

    • Scimommy

      Photoshop – it’s not just for ladystars any more! Seriously, he looks like a mannequin on that cover. A gorgeous mannequin, but still.

      • Fitzperry

        You’re all right about the Photoshop, of course, but when I scrolled through the photos all I could do was picture him ironing like that in my backyard. Don’t ruin it for me :D

        • Sherilyne Cox

          Yes, yes, yes……objectification is difficult to avoid in that come-hither hosiery. Even my Jewish Godmother would break kosher for Mr. Hamm.

            I don’t know about your grandfather but those garters look like my grandfather’s!

      • GinnyThePainter

        As a portrait painter, that first photo just offends me. In theory, with most human faces, the distance from the top of the forehead to top of eyebrows = the distance from top of eyebrows to bottom of nose = distance from bottom of nose to bottom of chin. Jon Hamm, however, has a proportionally long chin, as does Clooney. And they still manage to be very handsome men. So why photoshop an inch off JH’s chin? Why NOT the long face?

    • Gatto Nero

      Poor Jennifer.

      • Mrs. Julien

        She cries all the way to the bedroom.

    • Anna

      Don Draper’s take on a wetsuit. I approve.

    • Karen Belgrad

      He always seems a little cranky about the female attention he receives. While I have never met him (and thus never had the chance to offend him), it does bug a little.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

        It’s his fault for not wearing a, “I’m handsome, get over it” t-shirt.

        • http://angrynerdgirl.net/ Jessi03

          Would you say he’s…Hammsome?

          I apologize.

          • Karen Belgrad

            Don’t!

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

            For the Honor of Greyskull, don’t!

      • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

        It makes me uncomfortable too when people don’t respect actors’ or celebrities’ personal lives, or make inappropriate advances. I just hope it makes him sympathetic to how female celebrities are objectified.

        • Karen Belgrad

          I think he lost some points (with me) for not having a sense of humor about the Hamm’s Wang tumblr.

          • Maryanne525

            Really?? I would be downright PISSED about a Tumblr devoted to my vagina. I think the dick pics are in horrible taste.

            • Thomas

              It might be in horrible taste, but it’s gonna happen and I think he should just get over it. I’m sure there’s a tumblr devoted to Christina Hendrick’s boobs. Not that it’s right, but I think unfortunately it comes with the territory when you become famous. You’re putting yourself out there for people to objectify.

            • Karen Belgrad

              LOL… Jinx!!!!

            • Maryanne525

              What an odd justification. Sure, you sign up for pictures to be taken of you when you’re famous. You sign up a certain amount of privacy loss when you’re a celebrity. I don’t deny that. But c’mon. Photos of your cock zoomed in 100% on a Tumblr, he has every right to be pissed about it.

            • Thomas

              It happens to all celebrities, not just him. Trust. He should be happy that the paparazzi haven’t taken pics of him naked like Brad Pitt. It’s not right, but it happens when you’re famous.

            • Maryanne525

              I’m not saying it doesn’t happen. My main point that has somehow been buried along the way is that he has every right to be pissed about pictures of his dick being out there. I was replying to the OP that he lost points with her because he didn’t like that. Uh, it’s his dick. He can be pissed and throw a fit all the live long day if he wants.

            • Thomas

              You can’t even see it though. It’s just a bulge. You know how many bulge pics of famous men are out there? Just go to google images and search your favorite male celebrity and you’ll find a bulge pic. Yes, his bulge might have been a bit bigger, but he acted like he was the only one, that it doesn’t happen to anyone else, when it happens to all male celebs. Besides, if he really was freeballing as has been suggested, he kind of has himself to blame. We’ll agree to disagree on this one.

            • Maryanne525

              HAHAHA He has himself to blame! Holy shit. It’s his fault for not wearing underwear! He’s asking for it! That’s the same argument people use for women in short dresses. Clearly, they’re asking for objectification. But okey doke. Definitely agree to disagree.

            • Thomas

              All I’m saying is that all celebrities get objectified, right or wrong. He shouldn’t make such a big deal out of it, like it only happens to him. I think he’s overreacting. And it’s different than women in short skirts because they’re most likely wearing underwear. He didn’t look to be wearing any and people on set said he doesn’t wear any sometimes, so what is he to expect when his bulge is more prominent?

            • Maryanne525

              Dude…we can be done. I think you’re 100% wrong, and I think he’s entitled to keep the size of his dick to himself, underwear or not. This is the weirdest justification I’ve ever heard. He doesn’t have to put on underwear, and he has a right to make a big deal about people talking about his body. Anybody does. It’s his body, not anyone else’s. And trying to say he’s asking for it is just bizarre. But just because a man appears on your television screen once a week and is empirically handsome doesn’t give anyone permission to start discussing the size or appearance of his dick. Okay. 100% agree to disagree. Let’s leave this alone now.

            • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

              (If you want to be done, and keep reiterating “agree to disagree,” you can stop replying instead of trying to have the last word.)

            • Lolla Lee

              (But that’s none of my business.)
              *sips tea*

            • ShaoLinKitten

              And Brad is never going to live those down, either. I know, he’s crying himself to sleep on top of his fur-lined bags of money, but those pics are horrendous. I don’t think Mr. Hamm would have quite the same, uh, challenges as Brad.

            • Thomas

              I actually think Brad looks hot in those pics, lack of size or not. Maybe he’s a “grower” and not a “shower” anyway lol

            • ShaoLinKitten

              God, for Angie’s sake I hope so! The worst pics are not of his bare penis, though. They’re the ones of him tucking it in and dancing around. When I saw them I actually felt guilty about looking at them in the first place, since it was so clearly a moment not meant to be shared with anyone besides Gwyneth. Even someone accustomed to and desirous of fame doesn’t deserve that sort of thing.

            • Thomas

              And the thing is, I don’t remember Brad complaining much, if at all, about it. And he had every right to complain.

            • ShaoLinKitten

              He sued Playboy for publishing them, which is the ultimate form of complaining. He claimed “emotional distress and humiliation” along with severe harm to his profession. Pitt won the suit and the issue was recalled (yeah, good luck with that) and Playgirl lost $5 million. Compared to that, a little carping by Mr. Hamm seems like nothing.

            • Thomas

              Well, those were nude pics, so that totally makes sense. I haven’t heard him complain about it since then though. I understand why John dislikes the attention, but at this point I just think he needs to move on.

            • ShaoLinKitten

              No matter how much he dislikes it, it’s not going to stop happening, bottom line. What I do find odd is people saying, “he ought to wear underwear if he doesn’t want people to talk about his cock.” Well, I don’t think underwear is going to solve that problem. If you’re packing heat, you’re packing it regardless of your lingerie choices. Plus, he might find underwear uncomfortable. Too… binding. I get feeling weird about the whole thing. Is he complaining about it that much?

            • Thomas

              I remember he complained a lot about it when the photos first made the round. The thing is, he was out in public, so he can’t sue, unlike Brad Pitt who was on private property. And I have a friend who is VERY well endowed and they can’t wear certain types or brands of underwear, but they still wear underwear and it hides their bulge under their pants, so I don’t find that to be an excuse. I do think if he’s gonna go free balling in public, he can’t really complain about it.

            • ShaoLinKitten

              The man I knew who was porn star endowed rarely wore underwear. When he did, he wore boxers, which do nothing to corral the gents. He said he wore them so he wouldn’t accidentally zip himself up in the zipper of his tighter pants, not to hide anything, because there was no hiding it. And that’s all I really know about this topic…

            • Thomas

              I do like the whole meme for the term “Hammaconda” though lol

            • Gatto Nero

              I also understand fan attention up to a point — autographs, photos, etc. But I think asking for a kiss crosses a line. To turn it around, how would it be perceived if someone said that to Christina Hendricks, or Angelina Jolie? Maybe he’s exaggerating here, but it sounds as though this kind of aggression upsets him — and I can understand why. It’s disrespectful.

            • Maryanne525

              Agreed. You’re asking for some attention and occasional disruption when you’re in the public eye. It’s one thing to pose next to someone for a selfie when you’re out running errands, but I definitely wouldn’t be too keen on someone coming up and touching me without giving them permission for a hug or something. I really don’t blame him at all. (Especially a kiss when he’s out walking with his partner. Just get a handshake. Tell him you like his show. Ask for a selfie. But you’re not entitled to a kiss. I’d wager a guess you wouldn’t walk up to a stranger you find attractive on the street and try to kiss him. haha.)

            • Thomas

              Yes, asking for a kiss crosses the line. But I definitely think he’s exaggerating here. I’d be surprised if it happens that often. I’m willing to bet that most of his fans are polite and don’t cross the line, and I think he should be more gracious about it.

            • Karen Belgrad

              As an every-woman on the street, sure I would be annoyed. But I think it’s a different ballgame when you put yourself out there for the #BeMeOrDoMe Olympics. How many tumblrs do you think there are dedicated to Christina Hendricks’ anatomy? We never hear her complain (or Sofia Vergara or Dolly Parton)….

            • Maryanne525

              Oh, okay. Then it’s fair game! If you’re an actor we get to look at your tits or cock as much as we want! Just because we’ve never heard Christina complain doesn’t mean Jon doesn’t have a right to be upset about it. It’s his body and pictures of his dick while he’s running errands.

            • Karen Belgrad

              It’s part of the celebrity fame game. When he makes a big stink in the media, he comes off as cranky. it’s not like they are X-ray vision pics.

            • Maryanne525

              Hey look, I get it. You think it’s fair and I think it’s disgusting. But I’d wager a guess that you wouldn’t think it was “cranky” for Christina Hendricks to ask for everyone to stop objectifying her large breasts. We’ll clearly never agree so I’m going to leave this alone. I just think anyone (regardless of celebrity status) has every right to keep things like the size of his genitalia to himself.

            • kerryev

              What would be the point of complaining? No way would a woman be able to voice even a mild displeasure with the objectification before every other jackass on the internet was calling her an ungrateful bitch. And I’m not positive the comparisons are apt. Christina doesn’t market herself like that.

            • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

              I will say there’s a difference between making a tumblr about you as an “ordinary” person, and someone who’s making their living with their looks (and acting ability, yes, but he’s also doing photoshoots like the above). I’m not disagreeing that it’s in bad taste, but there’s a difference.

            • Maryanne525

              Wait, what?

          • Capt. Renault

            He has every right to be upset about the tumblr.

            That said, as a guy, I don’t understand it. The vast majority of guys are probably perfectly OK with being objectified on the basis of having giant schlongs.

            But yes — Jon is perfectly within his rights to be unhappy. Thinking about it rationally — absolutely.

            • Thomas

              But should he complain about it to the media as much as he does? That’s the question. I think he should just move on from it.

            • Capt. Renault

              Who knows how often he’s really talking about it in these interviews?

              That said, for those of us less rich, famous, and handsome, his complaints about people objectifying him for his huge penis… Well, we all have our crosses to bear, I suppose.

              Which isn’t to say that he’s not right, of course. Only that I’m not throwing him a pity party anytime soon.

          • Kent Roby

            Hamm’s Wang tumblr? Why, that is just the most horrific, insulting, objectifying thing…to which I must “follow” immediately!

        • Thomas

          Yes, people should know better than to go up to celebrities and ask for an autograph when they’re just trying to enjoy a normal day. That’s what events are for. But celebrities shouldn’t complain about it either because it comes with the territory. They should know to expect it when they go into show business.

          • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

            Asking for an autograph, or to express appreciation for their work or even tell them how hot they are, is one thing. Outright heckling them with lewd remarks, etc. is something else — I think it’s okay for them to get upset about that.

            • Thomas

              I’m willing to be he’s exaggerating though. He sounds kind of paranoid about it.

            • alyce1213

              He sounds a little full of himself — as regards “every third person” wanting a kiss.

            • ShaoLinKitten

              Not trying to be contentious here, but I’m wondering how some of these people manage NOT to “get a big head.” If as many people said I was beautiful as say Jon Hamm is attractive, I would be hard pressed not to start believing them. And I don’t doubt people say presumptuous, weird things to him and try to touch him. I am not a celebrity, but I’ve been pregnant, and even strangers touch you, talk about your body shape, ask you personal questions, etc. I would be 0% surprised to find that he gets lewd comments frequently. People can be really ridiculous about other people’s boundaries.

            • Thomas

              I think you kind of have to have a big ego, whether you show it or not, to be a successful celebrity. The entertainment business is tough, so I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of them have big egos cause that’s what it took to get ahead.

            • alyce1213

              I think what rankled me was him actually saying out loud “every third person will be like, ‘Can I have a kiss?’. . .”
              I guess I can’t expect humility in most celebrities, but the appearance of humility would help.

            • ShaoLinKitten

              Is it a thing, to ask celebrities for a kiss? I can’t imagine doing that. If I saw Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westerfeldt out somewhere, I wouldn’t even have the nerve to approach them, much less ask him to kiss me. So yeah, he’s probably exaggerating, but I bet creepy stuff happens to him quite a lot. The price of fame and all that.

            • alyce1213

              It’s only a thing for some teenagers and immature grownups. I couldn’t imagine doing that either (even as a teen).

          • alyce1213

            I agree. Celebrity requires a strategy for dealing graciously with the public, the operative word being graciously. People asking for autographs or a photo is fine. Unfortunately, many of the public are rude idiots who have no respect for boundaries, and it becomes sticky.

        • MK03

          If strangers asked me for a kiss when I was out with my boyfriend (or not), I would be pissed too. And honestly, that’s probably not even the worst invasion of his personal space he’s experienced. I bet he gets groped a lot too.

          • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

            You’re not a celebrity who has to expect that kind of attention and learn how to deal with it, but point taken. :) I’m sure he does get groped a lot, and there’s no excuse for that. People are pigs.

      • Thomas

        Honestly, any celebrity who complains about the attention falls on deaf ears to me. If you don’t want the attention, you shouldn’t go into show business. It comes with the territory. You should be appreciative of your fans. Without them, you would be nothing. I do feel bad for celebrities when they’re trying to just have a normal day like go to a museum with their kids or something and everybody’s gawking at them, but like I said, you have to expect it. You shouldn’t complain about it or find it so off putting, unless it gets to the point of stalking.

        • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

          Stalking, or just people not respecting their bodies as off-bounds. A favorite actor of mine does his best to interact with audiences at cons, he’s really sweet — then he got married, and a fan asked if she could give him a kiss, and he said no, and she still lunged for his face! That’s totally inappropriate, and I don’t think he should just put up with that as “part of the territory.”

          • Thomas

            Yes, that’s totally inappropriate. But people gawking at you is something that you should be expect and not find off putting.

            • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

              We are having this conversation in two different threads. :) Yeah, anyway, I think we’re in agreement — there’s a line, obviously, and people see it in different places. And I’m sure when you get that kind of attention — the appropriate and inappropriate kind — fifteen times in a day, you start over-reacting to the little things.

        • rainwood1

          I don’t think someone should have to hand over his or her personal life to the public just because they’ve decided to be an actor. I’m quite pleased when actors or other famous people try to counteract that notion as politely as possible (which I think Hamm does well) and I support those efforts fully. Nobody should expect to get a kiss from anyone they don’t know, famous or not. If I see someone famous whose work I admire, the most I’ll do is smile and nod to acknowledge their work and keep on going. I try to walk the walk as well as talk the talk about not intruding on someone’s private life.

          • Thomas

            I think people misunderstood what I was saying. In no way is going up to a celebrity and asking for a kiss acceptable. There are lines that you do not cross. Yet, I find it annoying when celebrities compare the intrusion to war or rape, and I think Jon Hamm complains about it too much. I still think the attention comes with the job. You’re gonna have people who go too far. I’m willing to bet that 99% of his fans are polite and do not cross the line, yet he makes it sound like most of them are assholes. He has every right to not like the attention, but I think he should complain to the people who cross the line, not the media all the time. I just think he could be a lot more gracious about it. That is all. Yet, people took my comments as saying that I think he has no right to be upset out it. I was saying that he shouldn’t be outraged about it so publicly. I don’t think it’s a good look for him.

        • Little_Olive

          You know, I’m not really sure about that.
          I mean I know there are entire books -libraries- on the subject, but I think celebrity has gotten bigger than itself and it needs to stop. Some admiration, yeah. Interest in every detail of their personal life, or the idea that they have given up the right to privacy (although the famehungry do, on purpose, but that works precisely because we have given celebrity such value), no.

      • Grumpy Girl

        Seems like the kind of interaction where he could have come up with a handful of pithy-but-polite remarks to fend people off. I get the subtext of “I am faithful to Jennifer, no matter how much of a whore the character I play is”, but, really, it does come across a bit less than pleasant.

      • Adrianna Grężak

        I’m a fan of Jon Hamm, but man, female actresses have always faced all the crap he complains about. He always seems so shocked and horrified by it

        It reminds me of my boyfriend’s reaction against people talking about Jon Hamm’s visible pant bulge – “He has a family!” Uh, so does Christian Hendricks, and every other female actress that is objectified.

        • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

          And even those without family don’t deserve to be objectified! :P

          • Adrianna Grężak

            My conversation with my boyfriend was along the lines of “Jon Hamm keeps complaining about what female actresses have to deal with” so I was surprised that that was his response.

            American media in general desensitized the public to female breasts whereas penises can’t be on screen. I generally don’t have a problem that HBO shows have a lot of female nudity – I have a problem that men aren’t equally objectified, it’s like they’re more sacred.

            • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

              Amen, sister. That was one of my top gripes about Game of Thrones, when I watched the show — they seriously couldn’t have cast anyone hotter to play Loras and Renly, who are the two fabulous hotties in the book???

      • MilaXX

        Usually I’d agree. I mean if he wanted less attention then stop strolling around town free balling. However, I can appreciate the comments about disrespecting Jennifer.

        • Thomas

          Somebody disagreed with me about the free balling, so I’m happy somebody agrees with me lol

          • Glam Dixie

            My thoughts are, if you don’t want people talking about your dick flapping around all over the place, don’t go out in public with your dick flapping around all over the place. Put on some damn underwear. Problem solved.

            • Thomas

              Thank you. I don’t understand why people are comparing it to women who wear short skirts being harassed and objectified. It’s completely different to me. Women should be able to wear short skirts without being harassed, yet if a woman was wearing a short skirt with no underwear and sitting down with her coochie for all to see, I wouldn’t think she has anything to complain about. I love Rihanna, but if Rihanna complained about people objectifying her because she sometimes runs around with see-through shirts and no bra underneath, I would have a problem with that. Jon Hamm should know that wearing no underwear is gonna make your bulge more prominent, especially if you have a big bulge. It’s just common sense. Case closed. Yet, a lot of people seemed to disagree with me on this.

        • ShaoLinKitten

          Maybe he finds underwear uncomfortable. I don’t have a dick, so I’m not qualified to say, but I knew a gentleman who was rather above average in that department and he always free balled. I haven’t taken a survey or anything, but perhaps his decision not to wear underpants is not simply to titillate. I feel bad for him if it really bothers him, but that said, every time I see pics of him, I look for his pants python. Can’t help myself.

      • Little_Olive

        But if he were a female model and people were all over him (her) telling her how prettyu she is or asking for kisses we’d be pretty grossed out. I’m sorta with him on this one.

        • Karen Belgrad

          Avril Lavigne made people stand a few feet away for photos and was insanely mocked for it. It’s a no-win for celebrities. That being said, at least people ask him, right? (as opposed to just doing)

      • Steven Tyler PJs

        My take on it was: his significant other is standing right there with him, he’s a Midwestern boy, and it feels frustrating when people are hollering at you all the time. Being hot is not the worst problem in the world to have, but I imagine that what he gets is similar to the catcalls and bus-brushings that lots of women experience and hate.

    • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

      “OH MY GOSH, it’s Jon Hamm, we got Jon Hamm to do a shoot with us. What do we do with him??? PUT HIM IN A SUIT! Okay, got that, now what? THROW HIM IN A POOL! This is the best shoot ever! Now what? TAKE OFF HIS PANTS AND HAVE HIM IRON THEM. IN A PARK, WITH MAXIMUM SUNLIGHT TO DO JUSTICE TO HIS SOCK SUSPENDERS! Oh my god, we have to lie down now, this is just too much. We’re done. Thank you, Jon Hamm.”

    • Kristen

      swoon

    • Nikko Viquiera

      Who’s disappointed? I read John Hamm and I thought we’d get to see the Hammaconda. sad face.

      • higgledypiggledy

        There’s a slightly synthetic quality to his face in the cover shot (something weird at his temples/forehead), but the lack of that particular beast (come on! his legs are wide open and pointed at the lens!) is evidence the GQ photoshop team went too far. Criminally too far.

    • Sarah

      Because all the parks I go to have outlets expressly for wayward wrinkly-pants ironing men. That’s not weird, at all. Nor is wading in a fine suit, of course.

    • Alyssa

      Yes, I can see him becoming quite the silver fox!

    • luludexter

      The ironing shot is silly but you have to admire how Hamm is just owning the goofiness. I love him for that.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      We need to solve the silver fox deficit in this country.

    • JauntyJohn

      Oh fuck you, ironing board. Just… fuck you.

    • Tee

      Sigh . . . .

    • Conniepop

      So damn hot.

    • http://angrynerdgirl.net/ Jessi03

      I love them all, but I’m especially partial to the ironing one. He looks so pleased with himself!

    • Denise Rambo

      I always think Jon Hamm looks much better as Don Draper than as himself. As himself, he always looks kind of, I don’t know … smarmy. That cover shot is what Don Draper would look like in 2014. The rest of the shots looks just kind of, I don’t know … smarmy. He needs to figure out how to look like that cover shot all the time.

    • Judy_J

      He just gets better and better looking with every passing day! Love the ironing board photo! I’ve got to say I admire him for being indignant about women wanting him to kiss them, and with his partner right there. It shows respect for her and for himself. Good for you, Jon!

    • vahtel

      I wasn’t even thinking about what could make this day better, and up popped Jon Hamm. Now I realize what was missing.

    • Zeee

      Be still my heart.

    • SistaT

      The cover looks like a painting of Jon Hamm.
      In other news: I was raised well and that is the only reason I would *not* beg for a kiss from him if I saw him in Central Park or anywhere else. The man is just swoonworthy. Funny and unbelievably handsome and committed to his partner. *sigh*

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      The cover picture looks a little strange, but I’m digging the other shots (even if they are a bit odd). I prefer the pictorial he did a few months ago for Vanity Fair. Those were also a bit odd, but they featured a cute English bull dog!

      A bit off topic, but it’s just a few weeks until Jon Hamm night at the Cardinal’s game complete with Jon Hamm bobblehead! I couldn’t afford the meet/greet session, but our seats should provide a good view of his ceremonial opening pitch [SQUEE]

    • Heather

      Jon Hamm: Extreme Ironing edition!

      Seriously, I made a sound.

    • Chickadeep

      Dreamy, in that Cary Grant-ish way.

    • http://tvblogster.blogspot.com Boop

      I need to go lie down.

    • MK03

      That sound you heard was my ovaries exploding.

    • Qitkat

      Photoshopped or not, that’s a gorgeous cover. I’ve hesitated to compare him to Cary Grant, but that picture sure comes close. And I immediately want all the men in my life to dress like this, although not at the same time, that would be weird ;p

    • decormaven

      I’d be intererest in him trying a different haircut- maybe something buzzed. He needs a look change-up after Mad Men; as heavenly as he has looked on that show, I want his look post-production to be something different.

    • Cindy

      If there is a more handsome man on earth, I don’t know who he is……

    • MilaXX

      He comes across as the rare pretty guy who doesn’t take himself too seriously. Nice.

    • TwiddlyStun

      Why did he have young Kevin Kline stand in for all of his photos?

      • imakeart

        First thing I thought, too! I would have never thought there was any similarity, but these shots make it unmistakable. Good lord is Jon Hamm hot.

    • Imasewsure

      For a gorgeous man, he is awfully darling… :)

    • KCF

      very. pretty.

    • Little_Olive

      Blah pictures, pretty pretty man, nonsensical back comb on the last photo.

      • Shawn EH

        It’s kind of cool he got the suavedetorial rather than the leather jacket guidertorial, at least. He dresses up so nice!

    • MarissaLG

      Before I even read the last sentence of this post I though, “Man, he should really put a touch of gray in his hair.” Real or not, it would really suit him.

    • Dandesun

      I enjoy Jon Hamm immensely, I think the ironing picture is my favorite… but what really got my attention on the cover was the Gary Lineker quote (and he’s a handsome man to look at as well, too bad he’s not on the cover) about the corruption of FIFA and how England should never host the World Cup again. [/soccer nerd]

    • jen

      Sigh, love him. He’s such a gorgeous goofball.

    • http://viridianpostcard.blogspot.com/ viridian61

      Last picture: Reminds me of Extreme Ironing. Google it for fun.

    • CKMia

      Holy mother of God.

    • FibonacciSequins

      He’s going to be another silver fox, like Slattery.

    • PinkyK

      Hubba! Hubba!

    • paintedfish

      pretty. pretty yummy.

    • Michelle

      Are those garters for socks?!

    • camdiggidy

      OMG THE TOUCH OF GREY; I AM DYING.

    • vicki

      Sigh, me too!!! He is lovely no matter what.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I hope what he does next is at least one really good comedy. Don Draper is so dark, and Jon Hamm is so funny. Maybe he could get into an Apatow movie. I’d love to see him in a comedic lead.

    • Kimberlini

      Some men are actually better looking with silver hair; I call it the Peterman Principle.

    • marlie

      It’s the cover photo that does it for me. ROWR.

    • MitzyG

      Break me off a big old hunk of that, yes, ma’am!

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      “every third person will be like, ‘Can I have a kiss?’ No! Absolutely not! And Jennifer [Westfeldt, Hamm's long-term partner] will be right there! It doesn’t make you feel good. I’m like: how were you raised?”

      Hate Don Draper, love John Hamm. Classy, funny, good guy.

    • Michelle Lim

      dude can do no wrong.

    • Mothra

      How come I keep looking right at his crotch?

    • quiltrx

      I especially like the cover…rather Cary-Grant-ish.

    • SoAnnaPropriate

      He is just so Hamm good looking for me to notice all the problems with the editorial.

    • Pepper Collins

      I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing about the cover! Silver Fox, here we come!

    • somebody blonde

      It’s amazing how good he still looks when he’s favored with good lighting and makeup.

    • evave2

      Do men actually wear sock stretchers (what are they called)?

      • Ali2044

        Garters

        • evave2

          Oh my stars and garters. I think ladies’s garters are sexier than men’s garters (could not think of that word, and did not think it referred to the mens’ accourtrements as well). These things just look silly.

          The original question still stands: do men who are not in photo shoots trying to look “editorial” still wear them? Because I think it looks dumb.

          • gloriana232

            You could need them if you have socks that don’t stay up (perhaps 100% wool socks, instead of ones with a bit of rayon or nylon). I don’t imagine many at all bother nowadays.

            • Ali2044

              Yeah, I think they were a pre-elastic thing.

    • Ali2044

      After watching A Young Doctors Notebook I’m not worried about his future career. The guy has chops and can do dark humour pretty well.

    • suzq

      I’m sorry. I can’t get past the cheeky title. Jon isn’t “ditching Don Draper.” The show is coming to an end. He has nothing to do with that. Big splash in Hollywood? He gets steady work in film and on TV. Sigh….

    • RescueMe23

      Whenever I see him the word Douche always pops in my head…sorry all you Hamm lovers…

    • Sophie

      Love the ironing picture, but that first one is horribly photoshopped. He looks like a plastic doll.

    • https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Farmhouse-Store/95951940388 Bill Curtis

      He’s so handsome. I’m a big fan. But what I really want to know is who makes that sports coat he’s wearing on the cover. I want one. I could rock the hell out of that outfit.

    • nycfan

      The hands in the shot with the iron do not appear to be the same hands in the cover shot … could be just absurd photoshopping to youth-enize* his hands but makes me wonder if his head belongs to the body on the cover, which would be odd since the man rocks a suit. Maybe he just doesn’t have that 20-year-old trim that simply cannot be replicated after a certain age and they wanted his face on a 20-year old body? I dunno.

    • jwrdwr

      With a little luck and the right parts, he could be his generation’s Cary Grant.

    • Ann VerWiebe

      Hamm will be fine when Mad Men ends. It’s the ones that think the carousel keeps going without trying that fall so dramatically.

    • siriuslover

      Nice photo spread. Why would people ask for a kiss? I guess I don’t get it. An autograph maybe, but it’s not like Draper’s character is very likable. I also think he’ll be fine. Our family didn’t get a chance to see it, but we wanted to see his movie about the Indian baseball players. And YES on the silver-haired sexiness. I think it may be his skin coloring that adds to the sexiness of it…Like a more natural George Hamilton.

    • Mary Lauer

      He even makes sock garters look good!

    • JynxTheCat

      Feeling Kevin Kline editorial

    • e jerry powell

      The jacket on the cover try is killing me with jacket lust. I MUST HAVE IT.

      And if it arrives with Hamm still in it, even better.
