'Mad Men's' Matthew Weiner says Joan is too sexy for him

July 20, 2010 | 10:31 am

Matthew Weiner doesn’t think he could handle Joan, “Mad Men’s” red-headed vixen.

"Joan is terrifying to me," the show’s creator told ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer in a Skype interview. "If you were to actually have intercourse with Joan, you might burst into flames."

Sawyer spoke to Weiner about the look of the show in advance of the series’ fourth season, which begins Sunday. (Mini spoiler alert!)

Weiner said the upstart ad firm started by Don Draper and his colleagues has “a different energy” than the bustling floor of Sterling Cooper. And Draper is now living in an apartment located in “the Marina del Rey of that time,” Weiner said.

“This is the divorced-dad locale,” he added. “It’s plush and it's velvety and it's masculine and it’s somewhat lacking in personal character … sort of the Oakwood apartments of its day.”
