Jon Hamm Defends Kardashian Comment
It's ten days and counting until the AMC premiere of Mad Men, and Jon Hamm and girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt showed up on the red carpet Wednesday night in Los Angeles to celebrate the premiere of Season Five.
Hamm, who recently found himself the rare topic of controversy when he called Kim Kardashian an "idiot" in an interview, only to have Kardashian lash back at him on Twitter, beamed on the red carpet next to his lovely partner of 15 years, Westfeldt.
Westfeldt and Hamm recently worked together in the acclaimed film, Friends with Kids — she as director and producer, he as co-producer, and both as actors.
And what about the Kardashian craziness? "It's surprising to me that it has become remotely a story," Hamm told E! News. "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."
Also present at the Mad Men extravaganza were usual suspects January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, John Slattery, Jared Harris and creator Matthew Weiner.
Catch the long-awaited Season Five premiere of Mad Men on March 25.
