Jon Hamm may look like Don Draper, but when it comes to women, they are worlds apart. While "Mad Men's" ad guru Don is famous for his philandering ways, the actor who plays him has been faithful to his girlfriend, actress Jennifer Westfeldt, since 1997.

But if that isn't enough evidence for their opposing approaches to the opposite sex, just take a look at the 41-year-old actor's installment of the "Ask A Grown Man" video series. Like Paul Rudd and B.J. Novak before him, Hamm doled out advice to teen viewers, summoning a surprisingly deep reservoir of Girl Power from within his brawny exterior.

For example, to Britney, the "16-ish" girl who complained about a boy flip-flopping on his feelings for her, Hamm was appropriately laid-back.

"Look, there's a lot out there. If the guy doesn't want to get with you, don't sweat it," he said. "And don't define yourself by the ones who want to get with you."

When it came to a girl who was worried about how attractive her style is, the "Mad Men" star was equally empowering.

"Don't go around trying to please guys. It's impossible, and it's like going around trying to please girls: You'll never do it," he explained.

And if that wasn't enough to get teen girls to take him seriously, Hamm knew exactly how to sign off.

"Enjoy the 'Hunger Games'!" he concluded.
