Jon Hamm stopped by Anderson Cooper's talk show with silver fox and fellow Mad Men star John Slattery presumably to talk up the show's season premiere this Sunday. But Jon also found himself talking about Kim Kardashian.
If you haven't been following along, last week Jon lamented the fact that the Kardashian show is more popular than Mad Men. He said, "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." Kim took to Twitter to defend herself, tweeting: "I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another. 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."
Chatting with Anderson, Jon said he was just trying to make a greater point about the state of American entertainment. He noted that he's now in a Twitter feud, although he's not on Twitter nor a "big fan of feuding." Anderson commiserated, saying he too once made the mistake of mentioning the Kardashians in a negative way, and found the comments following him around. Watch a clip of their chat, and tune in to Anderson on Friday to catch the full interview.
