Incredibly, hilariously, and totally awesomely, Jon Hamm is apparently at it again.
In an interview with Time Out London, the actor was asked about his status as a sex symbol and told the publication:
“The sexy thing is so ephemeral and meaningless other than in the world of selling magazines. Who cares, when it’s reduced to just that? You might as well be a Kardashian and have a sex tape.”
This dig, of course, follows Hamm’s reference to Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian as “idiots” who serve as examples of how stupidity is rewarded in our culture. He’s mostly stuck by theseMore >
Jon Hamm appeared at PaleyFest last night, an annual event in Los Angeles that honors the best in television, and answered questions about Mad Men season five, his favorite episode from season four and… Kim Kardashian?!?

It’s totally on between… Jon Hamm and Kim Kardashian?!?
The Mad Men star made headlines this week for telling Elle UK he was baffled by a society that rewards “being a f-ckin idiot,” specifically referencing Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton in the process.

“I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes theMore >
He’s one of the most talented actors alive, as well as a member of the Saturday Night Live hosting pantheon. In short: Jon Hamm ruled long before he spoke to Great Britain’s Elle magazine.
In the latest issue, though, the Mad Men star says exactly what anyone with an IQ over 12 is thinking: why do so many people care about Kim Kardashian and other reality stars?!?
“We’re at a place where the idea of being ‘elite’ is somehow considered a negative,” Hamm says. “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f-cking idiot is a valuableMore >
A trio of THG favorites, all famous for very different reasons, celebrate a birthday today.
First, Mad Men star and Saturday Night Live host extraordinaire, Jon Hamm, turns the big 4-0. Does it get any cooler, funnier and more talented than this TV icon?
Next, House actress Olivia Wilde is now 27, as she’s seen her career take off over the past year with a steady role on that Fox hit, along with lead in the sequel to Tron. We like when she poses naked.
Finally, Carrie Underwood, the most successful American Idol champion in history and a natural beauty, hits the age of 28. Send in yourMore >
Jon Hamm and Colin Firth are two of the classiest actors in Hollywood.
But it’s time for these veteran stars to get down and dirty! You’ve gotta take it to the limit when competing in a Fashion Face-Off, as Hamm should not be afraid to mock Firth’s stutter, or Firth be scared to call Hamm out for his drinking and womanizing problems.
Nothing is off limits when fashion honors are on the table, gents! Have at it now. May the most handsome win.
