Jon Hamm: Reality stars have 'zero dignity'

Actor says fame-seekers are not very 'different than porn'

Jon Hamm is not a fan of reality stars.

In a new interview with Details magazine, "The Town" star had a lot to say when it came to actors versus personalities on reality series.

"L.A. represents opportunity," Hamm told the glossy. "And, as has been proven over and over in the current media landscape, it doesn't take much for them to put you on TV. If that's all you want you can just be on 'The Bachelor' or 'The Real Housewives' or whatever show just wants oversized personalities, ridiculous behavior and zero dignity."

According to the "Mad Men" star, actors have much more respect for their craft than someone who appears on any one of the handful of reality shows on television.

"If you just want to be famous ... that's not that much different than porn," the actor said. 'I'm a movie star!' Well, no you're not. You're a porn star, and that's completely different."

He adds: "And you know, hey mazel tov -- porn probably built half the houses out here, but you're selling your dignity in a way that I feel I'm not. And once you sell it, it's gone. You ain't getting it back."

Hamm also opened up about his long road to success.

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