  • Jon Hamm is backpedaling from his comments last week about Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian in which he remarked “being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.” Kimmy fired back over Twitter, calling him “careless,” and now Jon, somewhat naively told E! that “It’s surprising to me that it has become remotely a story.” (Really?) He continued, “I don’t know Ms. Kardashian, I know her public persona. What I said was meant to be more on pervasiveness of something in our culture, not personal, but she took offense to it and that is her right.” [PopBytes]

  • After Jon Hamm was quoted in an interview saying our culture celebrates “idiots” like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, Kim fired back on Twitter. “Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, ‘stupid,’ is in my opinion careless,” she tweeted.  [People]

  • Don Draper might not have such discriminating taste, but Jon Hamm does. In April’s issue of Elle UK, he says “stupidity is celebrated” with Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian and “being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.” I’m not thrilled he only named ladies here — cough The Situation cough — but his sentiment is nevertheless swoonworthy.  [Daily Mail UK]

Jon Hamm & Jennifer Westfeldt Are My Relationship Role Models

Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt photo

I don’t care too much about celebrity couples, the flings and breakups and and marriages and babies. I’m far too cynical for all that: there’s so much smoke and mirrors going on in Hollywood that half that stuff is publicist B.S. anyway.

But I read the article in this week’s New York Times Magazine about “Friends With Kids” director/star Jennifer Westfeldt and her co-star/boyfriend, a little actor you may have heard of named Jon Hamm. They both sound like normal people who are bewildered by all scrutiny on them just because they’re famous and they’ve carried on a happy-sounding, healthy-sounding relationship for 14 years. How the hell do they do it? And how can I steal their secrets?

Elisabeth Moss: People are constantly asking if [Don Draper and Peggy Olsen are] gonna sleep together. I always get annoyed, because their relationship is more than that. And to keep that going over five years without selling out and having something else happen — that to me is really interesting and rarely done well.

Jon Hamm: People want to put us in a “Sam and Diane” box, but it’s about their mutual appreciation for the work. That’s where the material strikes its resonant chord, when it’s ostensibly about one thing and then it becomes about so much more. That’s the fun thing about Don and Peggy, and that’s the deeper thing about “Mad Men.”

If you thought this was the season that Don and Peggy were finally going to get together on “Mad Men,” you were wrong (again). Which is how it should be. [NYmag.com Vulture]

“I think in the world of the show we see the office through Peggy’s eyes. She’s the new girl and we see her from her very first day… And we’ve watched through over 50 episodes of television her grow and become more confident and we’ve watched Don alternately shout at her and correct her and not be very nice to her but also be profoundly nice to her … I think Peggy is very important to Don. And I think you saw at the end of season three, when the firm blows up and they have to start all over again, he says ‘If you leave, I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to hire you back.’  And I think that sums up relationship that Don and Peggy have.”

– Jon Hamm talks about Don Draper’s relationship with his copywriter Peggy Olsen, seemingly shutting down any potential relationship between the two. “30 Rock” used a phrase on Thursday night that strikes me as the perfect descriptor for the relationship on “Men Men” between Peggy and Don: subordi-friendship. They’re friends, but one is subordinate to the other. (And sex is not a good idea.) [TV Fanatic]

Jennifer Westfeldt is some kind of voodoo witch doctor sorcerer. Not only has she captured the heart of Jon Hamm, but she has also written and directed a romantic comedy with an ensemble cast and, you guys, you’re not going to slit your wrists while watching it. “Friends With Kids” comes out March 9 and stars Jennifer, her manpiece, Kristen Wiig (!), Maya Rudolph (!), Chris O’Dowd (!!!!!), Adam Scott (!), and Edward Burns (!!!!!). That’s like half of the “Bridesmaids” crew, which is why it actually looks funny. Goddamn, woman. How did you keep Katharine Heigl from being cast in this? Burning crosses and heads on stakes?  [YouTube]

Conan Surprises Staffer With Jon Hamm Sneak Attack

Watch Video

Watch Conan O’Brien surprise a staffer with a Jon Hamm sneak attack as a Secret Santa present. All I could think about when I was watching this was, Oh my god, imagine if I worked at Conan … and he was my Secret Santa … I would have been surprised with Ryan Gosling! And then I was sort of sad. Sigh. [Team Coco]

“For a lot of comics, there’s a persona they’re not comfortable revealing unless they’re performing. Kristen is incredibly shy; she has her hoodie pulled up and her sleeves pulled over her hands. But this is a woman who wore coconuts on her tits on SNL; she can go to the craziest, most grotesque places on the planet in character.”

– Normally I would roll my eyes at the random absurdity of a magazine like GQ naming Kristin Wiig their “Bro of the Year” alongside a photograph of the comedian in lingerie, but Jon Hamm wrote the magazine’s dedication and I am on Team Hamm Can Do No Wrong. Mind you, I’m not entirely sure what a “Bro of the Year” is, but it seems Wiig is being honored by the mag for “Bridesmaids,” a movie which — shocker! — many men found equally as funny as women. Which is awesome considering the whole “men are funnier than women” thing was getting rather tiresome. Keep reading »
