Old-school handsome actor Jon Hamm is feeling modest in the new issue of Rolling Stone, out Wednesday.

Although he cuts a sharp figure in 60s-era suits as dashing (and philandering) advertising exec Don Draper on Emmy-winning show Mad Men, Hamm says it's all an illusion.

"I don't really have that much in comparison to the way Don holds himself," Hamm, 39, tells the mag. "I'm not that guy. I don't really look like that."

January Jones, who plays his frosty onscreen wife Betty on the show, says she "need not to think about my character...Betty is so blissfully ignorant in certain ways, so I feel like I should be too."

Also in the cover story -- featuring stunning behind-the-scenes snaps -- curvy actress Christina Hendricks says her character, Joan Holloway, deals with "horrific things" on the show. "She consistently pulls it together, cleans it up and moves forward. Sometimes she's walking through mud, but she does."

At Sunday's Emmy Awards, the acclaimed retro series won the coveted Best Drama Series trophy for the third year in a row.
