Quote Of The Day: “Mad Men” Actor Jon Hamm Says “Whether It’s Paris Hilton Or Kim Kardashian, Stupidity Is Certainly Celebrated”

- By Bossip Staff

Do you agree? They might be savvy businesswomen, but Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton have clearly failed to impress more respected Hollyweird talents, including “Mad Men” actor Jon Hamm…

Jon Hamm is joining fellow no-nonsense Hollywood stud Daniel Craig in bashing two of reality TV’s most famous faces: Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.

“We’re at a place where the idea of being ‘elite’ is somehow considered negative,” he tells the April issue of Elle UK. “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated.”

The “Mad Men” actor added that these days, “being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly. … It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.”

Last November, Craig also opened fire on the Kardashian clan, calling them “f—ing idiots” who had made a fortune from doing nothing.

“Look at the Kardashians, they’re worth millions. I don’t think they were badly off to begin with, but now look at them,” Craig told Britain’s GQ at the time. “You see that and you think, ‘What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f—ing idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions?’”

Actor Jonah Hill added his own two cents back in December, expressing his frustration at the reality TV trend to the Huffington Post.

“The truth of it is, I have friends who work in TV and the Kardashians get higher ratings than their TV shows – shows that people actually work hard on – writing and creating and trying to tell stories.”

Hamm, 40, who plays ad executive Don Draper on his award-winning AMC show, also noted that female figures in today’s media are feeding into a warped image of what “beauty” is.

“I think Christina Hendricks is a beautiful woman, but we live in a culture where the beauty model is significantly different from Christina’s silhouette,” he said when asked if “Mad Men” had altered America’s concept of body image.

“Those of us that have lived with and actually seen a real woman naked and made love realize there are many, many [types].”

Hamm might be right on but Paris Hilton has fallen off hasn’t she? It seems like Kimmy Cakes might be right behind her, cuz the whole matrimony-dom and divorce business sure did make her stock go down. SMH.
