Jon Hamm Glad He Wasn’t Young and Famous

Monday, December 10, 2012

JON Hamm is glad he found fame later in life — because he wouldn’t have been able to cope with it in his younger years.

The actor got his big break at the age of 36 and he is pleased success didn’t happen for him at an earlier age.

“I think if you find crazy success at a very young age, then it can be quite dangerous,” he said.

“The road to celebrity is littered with people who got too much too soon and weren’t equipped to handle it.”

Jon has been with his girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt for 15 years and thinks one of the reasons for their success is because they’ve not really been in the spotlight.

“I don’t think there’s a secret,” he said.

“Any relationship is challenging when you’re under the microscope we’ve put ourselves under, but it’s your personal life and it remains personal.”
