Jon Hamm Talks Old Sexism Vs. New Sexism

Jon Hamm answers readers' questions about Don Draper's style and psyche in the new '10 Questions' column in Time. Read a few of them below and all of them here.

Season 4 of 'Mad Men' starts Sunday!

What qualities do you think men lack today that were present in those from the Mad Men era?
"There's a cordialness that men had when dealing with the opposite sex, even when they were being blatantly sexist. It's a weird conundrum. But that's been replaced with men treating women like absolute garbage and not even being polite about it, which is too bad."

Has playing Don Draper influenced your personal style?
"I'm more conscious of what goes into dressing up. My personal style is not quite up to snuff with Mad Men. But the difference between a nice suit and a suit that isn't tailored to fit you is significant. It's very much a statement about a person who's ready to look like he's in control of a situation."

How do you get your hair to stay so perfectly coiffed on the show? I'm trying to replicate it on my husband.
"Have your husband come into hair and makeup, and they will load it up with about three pounds of hair spray and gel, and it won't move. It is locked down. Crispy."
