Jon Hamm is best known for playing ad executive Don Draper on AMC's critically acclaimed series Mad Men. Among many awards, Mad Men won the 2011 Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series and Hamm's performance on the show has been celebrated by both fans and critics alike.
Hamm's pal, Paul Rudd, once described the actor as "one of those unfair guys who are good-looking, really funny and good at everything," so without further adieu, let's delve into that claim a little bit.
The good-looking Hamm was voted one of People's "Sexiest Men Alive" and GQ's "Men of the Year" in 2008. So, check on that one. Now, can we find a funny bone? Yep. Hamm was on SNL in 2008 and was invited back in 2010 for two more hosting gigs. As icing on the cake, Jon also has a recurring role on 30 Rock. As for being "good at everything," well, our research was inconclusive there. Although, Hamm has been with girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt since 1997, so he must have a lot of hidden talents (like cooking or something, where are your minds, people?!)
Hamm's relationship with Westfeldt goes way back to before he hit the bigtime. In fact, the two started dating three years before Jon made his TV debut in Providence. At the time, Hamm was working as a waiter and had told himself that if he didn't secure a legitimate acting gig by the time he was 30, he would give up. Fortunately, the same year he got the Providence gig, Jon landed the film Space Cowboys. Since he's "quit his day job," Hamm landed much more high-profile films, such as The Town (2010), Bridesmaids (2011) and Friends With Kids (2012). The latter was written by his lady-love, who was also one of his co-stars in the film.
Sexy, funny and talented? Jon Hamm really does seem to have it all.
