Jon Hamm, who made headlines for calling reality stars like Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton "f-cking idiots," has said he doesn't regret his jab.
Hollyscoop caught up with Jon at the 'Mad Men' Season 5 Premiere, where he told us that while he didn't mean anything personal, he doesn’t feel sorry for saying what he did.
"NO, I don't feel bad!" Jon told Hollyscoop. "I feel bad that she was hurt…I didn’t mean anything personal to her. I didn’t say anything directly to her. But, it was more about the culture at large and how we celebrate that."
Jon's statement that grabbed headlines:
“Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f-cking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.”
Jon clarified to Hollyscoop what he meant:
"It just seems like there are better things out there to celebrate with money and fame and celebrity, than that. And that was the gist of the comment. It was maybe…phrased ineloquently."
Comments aside, Jon has been in the headlines lately for his movie with Kristen Wiig, Friends With Kids, and of course, everyone is excited that 'Mad Men' is returning for a fifth season.
"We've been working together over six years, since the pilot, so it's very fun," Jon told Hollyscoop, of working with the cast of the show. "It's been a really nice experience and we're all very fortunate because of it."
