John Slattery might have earned himself silver-fox sex symbol status after playing Roger Sterling on Mad Men for nine years, but that doesn't mean he's comfortable with the title.
"It's nuts," the actor, 52, tells PEOPLE. "I don't think that anybody who is thought of in any way, shape or form as that is comfortable with it."
While Slattery admits he was surprised by all the attention from female fans, there are certain qualities about his character that come straight from the actor's own life.

So, if you haven't seen the season 5 premiere yet, stop reading! There are spoilers ahead …
