Melbourne: ‘Mad Men’ star Jon Hamm has slammed the new wave of fame-hungry celebrities entering the entertainment industry, saying that they sell their dignity for time in the spotlight.

"If you just want to be famous, that’s not that much different than porn," `I`m a movie star!` Well, no you`re not. You`re a porn star, and that`s completely different," News.com.au quoted him as saying in an interview to Details magazine.

The actor who plays Don Draper on the AMC drama said that true actors have more respect for their profession than those currently seen on reality TV.

"Porn probably built half the houses out here but you`re selling your dignity in a way that I feel I`m not. And once you sell it, it`s gone. You ain`t getting it back," he added.
