Details Oct2010 CoverGood looks, great style and an appreciation for Robert Pattinson — what's not to love about Jon Hamm?

The "Mad Men" actor sat down with the new issue of Details magazine and discussed his overnight stardom from playing ad exec Don Draper and why he's grateful his popularity boom came so late in life.

"I don’t know how the 'Twilight' kids or Miley Cyrus handle it. You make one bad decision and people in Thailand Twitter about it," he said.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves — while Hamm can respect the pressure that young stars endure, he's into making fare for grown-ups.

"It's almost like an old Hollywood movie," he said of his new flick, "The Town."

"It’s got a love story, it’s got a crime element, but it’s very much for adults ... it just deals with [adults] — no werewolves, no vampires. Yet ... they’re retooling it for 3-D.”

Details also has an interesting timeline of Hamm's career; check it out here.
