The actor, who plays smooth advertising executive Don Draper in the hit TV show, recorded a short film for Rookiemag.com's Ask a Grown Man blog spot, in which adults answer questions sent in by young female readers.

Hamm starts by responding to "Britney, age 16-ish" who asked what she should do about a boy who asks her out on a date one day but later changes his mind. He says, "Give the guy a break, maybe he changed his mind, maybe you changed your mind... The world's your oyster... If the guy doesn't want to get with you, don't sweat it. There's a lot of guys out there."

Hamm then moves on to fashion by answering a question from another girl about whether "guys care about a girl's style", telling her, "Guys have opinions like anybody, but you should have your own style. Dress how you feel comfortable in what you feel is your own particular style - what you like."

He also addressed the tricky topic of whether a girl should break wind in front of her boyfriend, telling the anonymous reader, "I was under the impression that girls never farted so I don't feel like I am capable of handling this. Of course... farting is farting. Everybody farts. Go and read that book Everybody Poops. It's the same thing."

He finished the blog by saying, "Well, these have been my five questions. I hope I've been helpful. I'm 41 years old. It doesn't mean you have to pay attention to me. You're probably all too young to watch Mad Men, so I don't know. Enjoy The Hunger Games."

Actor Paul Rudd previously filmed a similar installment of the Ask a Grown Man series.
