Back in 2008, Hamm won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama Series. The actor was also in the running for the Screen Actors Guild Award and the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

Hamm has mostly caught the eyes of people because of his irresistible charm. His beautiful face is what once made A-lister actor Jamie Foxx think how handsome he is.

On the set of Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, Jamie Foxx couldn’t help but admire Jon Hamm’s good looks when he saw him on the monitor. The actor uttered to himself (after watching Hamm):

“He handsome.”

Even the director of Baby Driver, Edgar Wright himself called Hamm “handsome.” He thinks of Hamm not only as “handsome” but “funny” too:

It’s rare to find a dramatic actor who’s also funny. Handsome people aren’t usually funny either.”

Despite his own good looks, Hamm doesn’t want to hear this. In an interview with the Guardian, he said, “That’s certainly not been my experience.” The (now) 52 years old clarified:


“I bring more to the table than what I represent physically. And it’s a daily struggle to prove that. Obviously it’s a lovely thing for people to say … [I’m handsome], but sometimes it comes with a shitty dig underneath.”

Hamm believes being good-looking comes with its own unique barriers.

Jon Hamm Doesn’t Think of Himself as Handsome

After all, Jon Hamm’s been fielding questions about his good looks ever since he played the role of charming Don Draper in Mad Men. And let’s not forget his role as hilariously privileged Drew on 30 Rock. The actor seems totally pissed by knowing only for his “handsomeness.” As he told Glamour in 2014 when asked about playing Drew:

“It’s weird, honestly. When I look in the mirror, I see the same person I’ve seen since I was 10 years old. I don’t wake up in the morning and go, ‘There he is! Hot guy number one!’ Absolutely not.”

(As per HuffPost) Hamm doesn’t necessarily think of himself as the handsome guy. He said it is only “reserved for Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds” and other actors. He emphasized that someone with more muscles, shinier hair, or even more piercing eyes always exists.
