Jon Hamm: Stupidity in Hollywood is Celebrated
Whatever caused ‘Mad Men’ actor Jon Hamm to lash out at Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian must have infuriated him so much that he just had to vent it all out.
Hamm, who usually steers clear of Hollywood controversy, minced no words when he complained to ‘Elle UK’ that, “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated.
