New York: What’s the first thing Jon Hamm did when he saw his wax figure unveiled at New York’s Madame Tussauds? Took a selfie, of course.

“That’s a no-brainer. I’m probably not done doing that either,” he said. The wax figure is decked out in a debonair-looking grey suit. Ironically, Hamm, who stars in the hit TV show, Mad Men, arrived at the unveiling wearing a grey suit, similar to the one worn by his wax statue.

“This is happenstance, but it is kind of crazy how kind of identical we decided to dress. I’m referring to him as a human being as if he dressed himself,” he said. Hamm said he posed for the figure last year which took two months to craft.

As Hamm posed for photos next to the figure, he also joked about the stoic expression on the mannequin saying “a lot of people would say this kind of describes my acting (on Mad Men). A lot of waxy stares, a lot of silent brooding.”

Hamm was joined by his longtime girlfriend, actress Jennifer Westfeldt, who kept marvelling at how the figure looked exactly like him. The 43-year-old actor is in the middle of a publicity blitz for his movie, Million Dollar Arm, which released recently.
