Jon Hamm "doesn't get" Miley, Katy or One Direction

Although he looks a lot like him, Jon Hamm is a very different character to Don Draper in real life. But when it comes to pop culture, they might have a few things in common.

Just try and imagine what Don might think of today's celebutantes and it's not far off what Hamm has been quoted as saying about the Kardashians.

In a recent interview with him, we broached the subject and he revealed a similar apathy for other headline-grabbing young stars.

"All I can say is that I don’t get Miley Cyrus, I don’t get Katy Perry, I don’t get One Direction. I don’t get why that’s a thing," he explained.

"The culture we live in is one that needs something to talk about all the time," he told us. "Seriously, it’s the dumbest thing in the world. I got sh*t on for saying I don’t agree with the fact that the Kim Kardashians and Paris Hiltons of the world are worthy of attention, and people were saying, “How dare you!” I thought, “Wow, really? That’s a terrible thing to say?” It’s ridiculous."

Although he does recognise how this all makes him sound...

"I’m getting older, I’m slowly morphing into that the guy who stands on his lawn and shakes his fist and shouts “Get off my lawn!”"
