Mad Men actor John Salttery has said that he does not believe he is s star. The American director Slattery has expressed to GQ that he never feels the effect of a films success or failure.
“I don’t have to worry about how my movies sell because I’m not the guy in front. I’ve never been number one. I’ve never been the star of the thing,” he explained.
The star has also said maybe he is this way because of his role that he plays on Mad Men for five seasons.
“You see people from Seinfeld and Friends and whatever, Gilligan‘s Island, and you go, ‘There’s Gilligan!’ I’m sure there are meetings going on – ‘What about Slattery?’ ‘No, can’t use him; he plays that guy on Mad Men’,” he said.
“On the flip side, I’ve gotten a lot of opportunities I certainly wouldn’t have had.”
Mad Men airs on AMC in the US and in the UK on Sky Atlantic.
