Jon Hamm initially gave ‘Mad Men’ two strikes after picking up the script (6 photos)

Jon Hamm is Equire's latest cover guy for the May 2012 British edition. During his interview he talked about his hesitations about 'Mad Men' after reading the script.

“I remember picking it up. Mad Men: sh**** title. AMC: network no-one’s ever heard of. Two strikes. Then I read it. I said to her (girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt), ‘This is the best pilot I’ve ever read in my life.’”

Hamm was also asked about being a sex symbol. "There’s a lot of talk about, 'Oooh, you’re so sexy!’ If people put that mantle on you, fine, but you take it with a wink and a pinch of salt. At 41 I’m like, 'Give me a break, man, I’m no Ryan Gosling.' And that’s fine. I don’t aspire to be that. That’s not my jam.’"
