Jon Hamm: I Don't Need Validation in My Career

Jon Hamm and his longtime love Jennifer Westfeldt bring their car to an auto repair shop to get a tire fixed on Wednesday (November 20) in Los Angeles.

The 42-year-old actor recently chatted with The Guardian about whether getting recognized on Men of the Year lists and as a sexy guy is something he enjoys.

“Well, it is and it isn’t a good thing. If you are a guy who needs that kind of validation, more power to you. I’m not a guy who needs that,” Jon said. “I find most of it silly. You can ask anyone who knows me if I walk around as cock of the walk, and I’d be amazed if anyone said that was the case. That kind of culture should be the preserve of teenage girls, and if you ask any 16-year-old girl, she’ll say I remind her of her dad. You know, I am a 42-year-old guy in a world in which Ryan Gosling exists…”

What did he mean by the Ryan Gosling comment?

# 2

@Guest: I think he meant that he was putting it all in perspective, as Ryan Gosling is a lot younger than he is and is usually making all the headlines lately for being one of the hottest guys in Hollywood. Can’t wait for Mad Men to return … love Jon Hamm! :)

Yeah, who needs outside validation when you have a big one and everyone knows it.

Re: Ryan Gosling, I think he meant he knows what people are saying about him, and he gets the adulation, but that there are way hotter, younger dudes out there who, obviously, deserve it more.

@Guest:
What he means is that he’s too old for that kind of bullsh*t.

# 5

I like him. He is no nonsense. He seems very smart. And I don’t care if he doesn’t wear underwear and his nickname is Hammaconda. Just makes him more awesome

# 6

He become successful relatively late and nothing goes to his head. Still, he really needs to stop going commando when there are paps around. He doesn’t meean it, but it’s still offensive. No one needs to see that much of him.

# 7

He’s so old looking
