Something happened the other day, something happened that made me realize Jon Hamm is the man.
I mean, I’ve seen him around, don’t get me wrong. I’ve seen him being all tall and manly in his tailored suits, playing funny roles and then serious ones, looking dapper on Mad Men, and holding a smoldering stare on the cover of GQ, but I was just never goo goo ga ga over him.
It just wasn't enough and I wasn’t on the same page as everyone else who had his face sewn on their pillowcase. I felt like I could only know him as his Don Draper character because he was being celebrated as this modern day 1960s sauce pot women and men (don’t hide your man crush) were fantasizing about.
But I wanted to know the real Hamm, and then he did it, he wowed me: earlier this week he called Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian idiots and with no shame, sigh.
“Whether it’s Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.”
Keep talking, baby.
Ladies and gentleman, I'm in celebrity-crush love. I'm in celebrity-crush love with a man who doesn't know I exist.
It's the kind of love where I want to vote for him for president. No wait, I want to vote for him for king of the universe, regardless of politics or planets, or whatever. I want to put his face on Coca-Cola bottles and then wheat paste pictures of him all over the globe Kony 2012 style: onto park benches and freeway underpasses. He's the man.
And how could you not love him? I mean, he played Winnie the Pooh in his class play when he was in first grade. How precious is that?
He also has an English degree which means he's really good at sentence structure and thesis statements, oh yeah.
He worked as a day care teacher during college and a high school drama teacher before making his move to Hollywood. I KNOW.
He's friendly to muppets; that's cute, right? And he hangs out with Paul Rudd and Zach Galifianakis. He's so fun.
So besides looking dashing while drinking an Old Fashioned on AMC, what other reason do you need to love him?
