UK goes 'Mad' for Man of the Year Jon Hamm

Wednesday September 8, 2010

Picking up the Man of the Year gong at the GQ Awards in London on Tuesday, Mad Men actor Jon Hamm is clearly a star on the rise.

Arriving on the red carpet in a smart black tuxedo It wasn't hard to see why the gorgeous 39-year-old, who plays smooth ad exec Don Draper in the Emmy-award-winning American television series, has also been dubbed Sexiest Man Alive.

The actor has remained incredibly grounded, however, which many attribute to the fact that stardom has come relatively late to him. 

Speaking recently of his struggles to become an established actor, he says: "I drove around in a Volkswagen Rabbit I shared with one of my roommates, and it didn't have a roof.

"It doesn't rain much in LA, but when it did, it was utterly miserable."
