While Hamm, 46, has an Instagram account he doesn’t use it, admitting he doesn’t see the point, adding he only has it to follow others, “The point of life is not to put dog ears on yourself and post it online for everyone to see,” he said. “It’s fun, it’s adorable, but it’s the visual equivalent of masturbating – there’s no point other than immediate gratification.”

From leading, Emmy-winning, man in “Mad Men” to a supporting role in Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver” Hamm revealed his love of Wright’s work is was made him take on the villainous role, “Edgar is an original artist, and I just love his work,” he said. “Whether his films are commercially successful, I don’t give a s**t about.”

Two years ago, after finishing up the last season of the hit show, Hamm admitted to himself “I need help.” He checked himself into rehab for an alcohol addiction, which he confesses was the best thing he ever did, “Medical attention is medical attention whether it’s for your elbow or for your teeth or for your brain.”

He adds, “And it’s important… It’s not a weak move to say, ‘I need help.’ In the long run it’s way better, because you have to fix it.”

Hamm’s issue of InStyle is available June 9.
