Jon Hamm Stands By His Words of the Day
- -

This morning, Jon Hamm and a few cast members from AMC's Mad Men appeared on The Today Show, and Hamm was asked about the controversial comments he made about Kim Kardashian.

"It's a part of our culture that I certainly don't identify with and I don't really understand the appeal of it other than that car-crash sensibility," he told Matt Lauer. "It's not something that I partake in or enjoy, but it is what it is and here we are."

Hamm recently called Kim Kardashian a "f*cking idiot" in Elle UK, and Kardashian responded by calling his comments "careless."

The actor begins talking about his opinion on the situation at 7:00.

Newsweek is turning back the clock with a Mad Men-themed issue that looks as if it came straight from the main lobby of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.

The issue, which celebrates the March 25th return of  the AMC  hit series, will also include a few 60's-style ads from contemporary companies.

 "We've challenged agencies and clients to do '60s-inspired creative, but for modern messages and products," said Rob Gregory, president at Newsweek Daily Beast.

The vintage-style issue will include cover story on Mad Men, plus a story on the role of advertising in American culture.

Jon Hamm's Clarification of the Day

Jon Hamm's Clarification of the Day

Jon Hamm has commented further on his beef with Kim Kardashian, and explained that he wasn't trying to personally attack the reality starlet.

"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," said the Mad Men actor last night at PaleyFest.

He added that he didn't know Kardashian, and is only familiar with her public persona.

Last week in Elle UK, Hamm mentioned her by name and said "being a f*cking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly."

On Monday Kardashian responded and observed that while "everyone is entitled to their own opinion," his comments were "careless."
