Jon Hamm: I'd Be a Terrible Father

USMagazine, Sunday, March 25, 2012, 7:56am (PDT)
  • Jon Hamm has plenty of friends with kids -- and he's not interested in having any of his own, thank you very much.

    "I'd be a terrible father!" the "Mad Men" hunk, 41, tells Us Weekly. (As Don Draper on AMC's smash, the Golden Globe-winning actor plays a devoted if tortured father of three.)

    Explains Hamm, now on the big screen in "Friends with Kids," costarring and directed by Jennifer Westfeldt, his love of 14 years,"I see my friends who have children and I'm like, 'Dude, how are you even upright, much less here at work at 6 a.m.?'"

    One of those friends with kids is January Jones, who plays his frosty ex-wife Betty on the show, who has a six-month-old son, Xander.

    "Xander's cute as a button!" Hamm raves.

    Hamm's girlfriend Westfeldt, 42, recently mused to the New York Times about why they never started a family.

    "I've thought about this a lot lately. I never thought I'd be this age and not have kids," Westfeldt confessed. "But my life has also gone in a million ways I never anticipated. I kept feeling like I'd wake up with absolute clarity, and I haven't. And we have a pretty great life together. The chance that we'll regret it doesn't seem like a compelling enough reason to do it. I may wake up tomorrow with that lighting bolt, and I'll have to scramble to make it happen."
