In a new interview, the Mad Men actor opens up about his admiration for the singer’s fashion sense.
“I’m a big fan of Justin Timberlake,” says the 42-year-old actor. “I think he’s a trendsetter, as they say. But he’s always been kind of a natty dresser.”
Despite calling JT “a very fashion-forward kind of guy,” Jon does happen to recall one of Justin’s fashion crimes from the 32-year-old crooner’s early years.
“That one unfortunate picture of him in that denim tuxedo excused,” Jon says, referring to JT’s 2001 American Music Awards ensemble. The pop star and his then girlfriend, Britney Spears, wore matching outfits.
As for Jon, the dapper star returns as Don Draper on Mad Men for the show’s season six premiere on April 7— a program that’s become quite an influence on pop culture and retro fashion.
“It’s nice that our show has had that sort of serendipitous resonance with fashion,” he shares. “I think it’s great. I think it’s really cool.”
