“He seemed like he was a good-looking, athletic guy who possessed qualities I did not possess. We were playing Trivial Pursuit in teams. [A friend's sister] and I were on one team and Jon and [Sarah's brother] were on the other team. Jon would want to go right to Yellow, which was History, and I was like, ‘Oh, great, this guy is smart too.’ They would ask a question like ‘What is the largest lake in Africa?,’ and Jon immediately went, ‘Lake Victoria.’ I felt so emasculated in the game that, as a result, I started reading atlases.”

Paul Rudd and Jon Hamm have been friends since college, so Rudd contributed a rather endearing story about getting badly crushed at Trivial Pursuit in the latter’s Vanity Fair cover story. It goes like this: Hamm had taken a friend’s sister to high school prom. But by college, Rudd had his eyes on the sister. The two guys ended up facing off in a game of Trivial Pursuit, trying to impress the girl, and, well, it did not end well. Jon Hamm actually dominates Trivial Pursuit. Why are we not surprised he is even more perfect than we thought? [Vanity Fair] [Image via Sam Jones exclusively for Vanity Fair]
