Even some of the sexiest men have unsexy moments.

For Jon Hamm, that moment came when he lost his virginity as a 19-year-old college student. “There’s no version of it that’s not awkward,” he recently told ELLE. “As much as I practiced, I was still not quite ready for game time.”

While Hamm, 45, recognizes that “maybe it’s easy for some people … it certainly wasn’t easy for me.”

Today, the actor has plenty of advice for his younger self.

“The best thing you could say is: Appreciate it,” he said. “Struggle is part of the journey. That’s what I’ve learned in my forties: This too shall pass.”
