Jon Hamm rejects aspects of modern day culture like the Twilight movie franchise and marriage.

The Mad Men actor thinks there is a gap in the market for fun fictional movies for grown-ups.

Jon believes that teenagers have claimed films like Twilight as their own by following them in a cult-like fashion until they are ruined.

"[I don't believe in Twilight]. There's an audience out there for adult movies. I don't mean porn! I mean movies that aren't, 'Oh, my god, does the vampire love me?', or 'Oh, my God, is the robot going to destroy the world?'," Jon explained to the British edition of Cosmopolitan magazine. "Something you just want to get in your car and go see - something for the people who don't care about Team Jacob!"

Jon stars as advertising executive Don Draper in Mad Men. The 41-year-old is just as outspoken in real life as he is on the small screen. Jon shared his opinion on marriage, which is another part of modern day popular culture he refuses to embrace.

"Neither I nor my lady [actress-and-screenwriter Jennifer Westfeldt, his partner of 15 years] has the greatest examples of marriage in our families, but Jen is the love of my life; we've been together four times longer than my parents were married," Jon revealed. "I'm a lucky guy. I hit the jackpot at work and at home, and I get to share it with my girl!"

If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
