The GQ+A: Jon Hamm

GQ: There’s a video of you giving advice to young girls, but what’s the most important piece of wisdom you’d share with a son?
Jon Hamm: I don’t know, honestly. Boys are obviously very different than girls. I used to be a teacher, and herding eighth grade children around a classroom is tricky enough, but boys are particularly tricky. So mostly my advice is just to stop talking and be nicer, because they can be both loud and super, super annoying. I don’t know…I’m from the Midwest—being polite goes a long way with me.
GQ: Right, that’s some advice that could also apply to grown-ups.
Jon Hamm: Well, “stop talking” could apply to everybody.
