    GAAAAH JON HAMM. Emotions of Jon Hamm is the best Tumblr ever, because he is amazing. I can’t believe he did the Ask a Grown Man thing, just proves how great he is.

  • Erica May 8th, 2012 7:14 PM

    lolololol omg the ending

  • oriGINAlity95 May 8th, 2012 7:22 PM

    It’s like Rookie KNEW it was my birthday today. Woohoo! :) Jon Hamm for the win! OMG I LOVED THIS SO MUCH. I saw his face on the previews for todays’ articles and I literally couldn’t wait for it to be posted. He is so nice/funny, great answers!

    • AllisonWonderland May 8th, 2012 8:08 PM

      HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I wish I got Jon Hamm for my birthday haha. (P.S. Rookie it’s December 5th, so you’ve got months to plan something just as awesome.)

      • oriGINAlity95 May 9th, 2012 11:30 AM

        Thank you! And I’m sure they’ll think of something for December 5th!! ;)

    • Anaheed May 9th, 2012 5:23 AM

      Happy birthday!

      • oriGINAlity95 May 9th, 2012 11:32 AM

        Thank you!! A birthday wish from Anaheed! Awesome!! :)

  • Clairebearscare May 8th, 2012 7:27 PM

    gahh!! This is awesome. Mad Men is amazing.

  • Claire May 8th, 2012 7:32 PM

    “You’re probably all too young for Mad Men, so…uh…enjoy the Hunger Games.” Hahaha I LOVE THIS MAN

  • alley_cat May 8th, 2012 7:33 PM

    oh my god this is beautiful.

  • talia anais May 8th, 2012 7:38 PM

    oh my gosh, this is great. Rookie gets the best people to contribute and I love it.
    And I’m 16 and Mad Men is my second-favourite show on TV, thank you very much, Jon Hamm.

    • Anaheed May 9th, 2012 5:23 AM

      What is your first-favorite show?

  • crimsonandclover May 8th, 2012 7:43 PM

    Oh my lord that is Jon Hamm. Squee!

  • katrinaexplainsitall May 8th, 2012 7:47 PM

    praise da lord for jon hamm.

    • tallulahpond May 9th, 2012 2:47 PM

      I second that.

      • unefillecommetoi May 9th, 2012 8:10 PM

        I second second that! And we’re not too young to watch Mad Men, John, come on. I think most of us here love the show. Someone should’ve asked him who keeps or is going to keep Joan’s costumes after they finish shooting the series and how to get them.

  • decemberbaby May 8th, 2012 7:51 PM


  • myy May 8th, 2012 7:55 PM

    I love Mad Men and I love this video!!!!!!!

  • Greer May 8th, 2012 7:56 PM

    I have to say I felt a little weird about taking advice about relationships from Don Draper, but then I just thought of him as Drew from 30 Rock and everything was okay.

  • kooshka May 8th, 2012 7:58 PM

    He seems so confused through the whole thing, but his answers were brilliant!

  • meghang May 8th, 2012 7:58 PM

    i haven’t even watched this yet and i am fangirling allll over the place

  • tinklebot5000 May 8th, 2012 8:20 PM

    AHHHHHHH I could barely even listen because my hyperventilating was so loud. :)

  • Elena May 8th, 2012 8:24 PM

    Jon I love you, but come on. We all enjoy Mad Men… actually, we all LOVE Mad Men. And the Hunger Games. So, yeah.

  • gingercat May 8th, 2012 8:34 PM

    jon hamm is a golden god!!!!

  • Jakeline May 8th, 2012 8:47 PM

    Omg Don Draper! I love Mad Men!

  • Kristen May 8th, 2012 8:48 PM


    No way Jon Hamm! It was really strange to see him in a tshirt… and he kind of seems like an asshole, but in that attractive way. Yay for Rookie!

    • ladyjenna May 10th, 2012 5:58 PM

      Totally agree with this comment in its entirety.

  • Starboardd May 8th, 2012 9:05 PM

    I saw the thumbnail earlier and literally died BECAUSE I KNEW THAT THIS WAS WHAT IT WAS GOING TO BE

  • Tyknos93 May 8th, 2012 9:23 PM

    OH JESUS H CHRIST! I just fell out of my damn seat. Oh my…I can’t.
    This is perfect I haven’t even played the video yet.

    Thanks so much for this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Bren May 8th, 2012 9:29 PM

    I just outright Sally-Draper-Beatles-Freak-Out screamed when I saw it was Jon Hamm. I’ll go watch it now.

  • coolschmool May 8th, 2012 9:42 PM

    omg i love u and ur disgruntled confused shrug thing ~NEVER CHANGE~

  • bitcherry May 8th, 2012 9:50 PM

    I’m 20 so I guess I’m not too young to watch Mad Men? Hahaha

    I love Jon Hamm, the only bad thing I can say about him is that he was on “Sucker Punch”? Anyway, yay for Rookie getting such amazing people to contribute ♥

  • fairy_grrrl May 8th, 2012 9:54 PM

    I don’t care, I’ve watched every episode of Mad Men and I love it to death.
    I have no shame.

  • caralion May 8th, 2012 9:56 PM

    why is he so cool AND so attractive?

  • belle May 8th, 2012 10:02 PM

    Oh Jon Hamm, no one’s too young for you OR for Mad Men.

  • teenager May 8th, 2012 10:19 PM

    the scruff, the scruff, the everything, the SCRUFF (aka it’s great, thanks Rookie!)

  • poppunkgurrrlx May 8th, 2012 10:41 PM

    you were not very helpful lol

  • tessatalkalot May 8th, 2012 10:48 PM

    Hamming it up I see.

  • Mags May 8th, 2012 11:04 PM

    He’s cute, but his answers were ehhhh.

  • rubyhobbit May 8th, 2012 11:05 PM

    The squeaky voice I made when I saw this, I love Mad Men!!!

  • neelybat May 8th, 2012 11:13 PM

    i am so in love with him.

  • oh_darling May 8th, 2012 11:39 PM

    Rookie is on a roll!!
    You guys are getting great grown men.
    Can the next Grown Man be Jason Segel??
    Please and Thank You. =]

    • FlaG May 9th, 2012 12:10 AM

      Seconded for Jason Segel!

      • Violet May 9th, 2012 2:46 AM

        Thirded for Jason Segel !!!
        Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii !!!

        • unefillecommetoi May 9th, 2012 8:13 PM

          YES Jason Segel I second third that or whatever oh gosh yes! He was one of the few very things that made me feel like Disney didn’t ruin the Muppets movie.
          And yeah now that I think about it, most Don Draper’s answers weren’t super helpful but the first one rules: “Give the guy a break!” Well, it was helpful to me, because I’m like in the same situation. Ok I’ll stop writing now.

    • rayano-banano May 9th, 2012 6:35 AM

      segal!!! yah!

    • maggiemadge May 10th, 2012 4:07 PM


  • awesomecats May 8th, 2012 11:44 PM

    oh, hamm! this video series is one of the best things ever discovered!!

  • Adrienne May 8th, 2012 11:58 PM

    Love this man so much. He was hilarious in Bridesmaids. Awkwardish ending but he’s so funny! Go watch the Hunger Games. :)

  • Hayley G. May 9th, 2012 12:21 AM

    Jon Hamm just answered all my life questions. Bookmarking forever.

  • Pikaa May 9th, 2012 12:53 AM

    The whole thing was hilarious; his bemused expression, his perfect answers. He’s like a cool uncle that I wish I had.

  • TessAnnesley May 9th, 2012 2:09 AM

    Too young to watch Mad Men? Yeah oooookkkkkk…

  • Carneece May 9th, 2012 2:14 AM

    Best way to top off my summer Mad Men marathon? Advice from Jon Hamm.
    One humble request for a future “Ask a Grown Man” entry: ELIJAH WOOD

  • Isobel-cat May 9th, 2012 2:25 AM


  • juliette May 9th, 2012 2:41 AM

    young’ns love mad men!

  • Caden May 9th, 2012 4:01 AM

    Haha that was awesome. I dislike Mad Men but I very much liked this interview.

    Caden x

  • Hannah. May 9th, 2012 4:55 AM

    I like the way he didn’t kind of over advice give. Because I think it’s true that sometimes the answer is; to not worry so much, chill out and be yourself and stuff and I think he really got that across by not getting into so much. Cute times with the hamminator and his super hilarious dead pan humour. :)

  • WitchesRave May 9th, 2012 5:48 AM


  • Narnie May 9th, 2012 7:45 AM

    Dear Jon,

    I thought I only loved Don but now I love you too. And I love Mad Men, like I think we all do otherwise we wouldn’t be so excited about you answering questions about boys!

  • meghanj May 9th, 2012 9:01 AM

    “too young to watch mad men” hahahahahaha he has no idea who he is dealing with. three cheers to rookie readers for being totally like contrary and stuff like right guize?

  • EmmaB May 9th, 2012 9:32 AM

    these are videos are one of the best things the internet provides.

  • mrsflea May 9th, 2012 1:02 PM

    jon effin hamm!!!! he’s soooo cute and funny! can’t stop smiling. i love him. :)))

  • sowarlus May 9th, 2012 1:24 PM

    oh god, i can’t even!
    this was amazing! love jon hamm and all of his answers were amazing!
    “sixteen-ish” hahaha

  • Johanna May 9th, 2012 2:12 PM

    This is why I love rookie. I mean, it’s Jon Hamm talking about farts and stuff!

  • Nishat May 9th, 2012 2:16 PM

    Making out is fun. True story.

  • Bren May 9th, 2012 3:29 PM

    Could we get Joel McHale to do one of these? Or any of the guys from Community actually. That’d be great.

    • Greer May 9th, 2012 5:43 PM

      Donald Glover would be SO good

      • Aubrey May 10th, 2012 12:00 AM

        Yes, yes and yes to Donald Glover. That would be perfection.
        While we’re on the topic of suggestions, I’ll make a non-Community one:
        John Mulaney — that would make my life.

  • Flavia May 9th, 2012 4:51 PM

    why does he look worried? haha lovely man

  • Chimdi May 9th, 2012 7:25 PM

    I think I will go lie down to die now

  • ghostkisses May 9th, 2012 8:36 PM

    i just wanna kiss his entire face~

  • mirandab17 May 9th, 2012 8:38 PM


    gets better and better. unreal.

  • laughinguacamole May 9th, 2012 10:30 PM

    I do believe I just made a noise after watching that that could be very closely compared with a pig squeal.

    John Hamm is probably just, like, the most awesome 41-year-old that I know. Because NOW, you know, I TOTALLY know him.


  • TheCompass May 10th, 2012 3:03 AM

    This video just made it to the front page of reddit, in case anyone was wondering where the view count came from. Good job rookie!

  • Alexis May 10th, 2012 9:51 AM

    please have neil gaiman do one of these?!

  • EMMY_T May 10th, 2012 8:17 PM

    Am I the only one who thinks he was a bit of a jerk?

  • Chloe.Enthusiast May 10th, 2012 9:07 PM

    just saw this in yahoo – awesome!

  • barbroxursox May 11th, 2012 12:42 AM

    He’s wearing a Cardinals world series shirt! Go St. Louis, represent!!

  • cherrycola27 May 11th, 2012 2:46 AM

    This was on Yahoo! and Reddit. Haha, go Rookie!

  • saranev May 11th, 2012 9:24 PM

    From now on, I want to see baby/teenage pictures of every Grown Man who is featured on this website omg.

  • Vesperstar233 May 12th, 2012 12:50 AM

    “I was under the impression that girls didn’t fart… so… ehhh.” hahahaha Jon Hamm your face is pricless :P

  • Abby May 13th, 2012 9:05 PM

    So… when I saw that Yahoo had done an article about how this was on Rookie, I totally spammed the comments section talking about how amazing Rookie is, and all these people were just like, “Go away,” and I was just like “no.”

  • insteadofanelephant May 14th, 2012 2:03 AM

    slow your roll. hahaha this is awesome. so so down to earth

    instead of an elephant

  • amelia May 14th, 2012 10:16 AM

    this is freaking amazing. i love him. i love mad men.

  • unefillecommetoi May 15th, 2012 10:43 PM

    can I nominate Andy Samberg for the next Ask a Grown Man?

    • unefillecommetoi May 15th, 2012 10:43 PM

      he’s not that grown but I hope it counts

  • Jenn May 20th, 2012 11:50 AM

    The only thing he was wrong about was us readers being too young to watch Mad Men! It’s my favorite show on TV today!

  • Maradoll Mynx May 29th, 2012 4:13 PM

    Ok I just need to poke my head in real quick and stick up for John Hamm. For all who said his answers were “meh” or he didn’t go into detail…look again and recognize this is because the questions he was given were (with all respect) a bit silly and were not topics which could be elaborated upon!!!! Please do not scorn John Hamm in any way, shape or form…he is, and shall remain, PERFECT IN EVERY WAY ;)

  • evalavendar June 15th, 2012 3:41 AM

    Omg he is sooooo funny I love him

  • sn0wwhite June 30th, 2012 11:16 PM

    Oh man.
    I can’t even.

  • Lulli July 18th, 2012 2:50 AM

    A couple of weeks after I saw this on rookie, I was watching an Australian music tv show when they showed this video. It was soooo weird and I was like ‘That was on rookie!!!’
