Is Jon Hamm A Single Man?

Jennifer+Westfeldt+Jon+Hamm

Jon Hamm is easily one of my favorite actors and celebrity crushes. He’s just so damn dreamy, although he isn’t without his share of troubles; he entered rehab for alcohol abuse earlier this year, and may or may not have beaten a man in his college days. So, that’s something to think about if you’re looking to cruise for some Hamm, as the actor is now reportedly single, having broken up from his longtime girlfriend, Jennifer Westfeldt.

The couple have been together for 16 years. Sixteen years. But before you take a moment to mourn the broken union, keep in mind that this was first reported among Star magazine, so as you can imagine, a big ole grain of salt should be taken:

“The relationship just ran its course,” says a source close to the couple. In fact, the once inseparable duo haven’t been photographed together since January, before Jon entered a 30-day rehab program for alcohol abuse.

But it wasn’t the 44-year-old star’s addiction that brought on the breakup— it was Jon’s reluctance to start a family with the 45-year-old actress. “I don’t have a driving force to have a baby,” the actor has previously said. “That said, I’m in a committed relationship, and if it ever came up, I’m not ruling it out.”

However, sources say he did just that. “Jennifer realized that she and Jon don’t want the same things,” says the pal. “So they agreed that it was time to take a step back.”

If you want to know what I think, and this is SOLELY based on my opinion and some shady rumors, I think they’ve been broken up for a while now. It’s just been easier for them to pretend to be together, for whatever reason. I’ve heard that he’s not the most faithful dude anyway. But that’s all I’ll say, considering I have no real solid basis for any of this.

Jon Hamm Accused Of Beating A Man In 1990

Jon+Hamm

Jon Hamm is known for being a generally cool guy. I adore him, frankly, so this news rather disturbed me. Apparently, in 1990, while at the University of Texas, Hamm took part in a crazy violent hazing ritual. The reports are kind of shocking, and they don’t sound like something he would do. But then again, how much do we really know about Jon Hamm? His rehab visit sure surprised the f*ck out of me. So who knows?

Here’s what the victim is alleging, via Huffington Post:

The Emmy-nominated actor had not previously been publicly linked to a lawsuit filed by a Sigma Nu pledge who said he was severely beaten, dragged by a hammer and had his pants lit on fire. In the 1991 lawsuit, the pledge said Hamm participated “till the very end.”

Criminal records show Hamm, now 44, was charged with hazing and received deferred adjudication, which under Texas law means he had to successfully complete probation but was never convicted. A separate charge of assault was dismissed.

[..] According to the lawsuit, Hamm became “mad, I mean really mad” after the 20-year-old Sigma Nu pledge failed to recite things he was supposed to memorize about Hamm and other fraternity members. For Hamm, his list included “Young Bobby,” ”MC Hammer” and “UT Football Punching Bag.”

The pledge, Mark Allen Sanders, said Hamm went on to set his jeans on fire, shove his face in dirt and strike him with a paddle.

“He rears back and hits me left-handed, and he hit me right over my right kidney, I mean square over it,” Sanders said in the lawsuit. “Good solid hit and that, that stood me right up.”

Jesus, that does not sound good. Look, as a Hamm fan, I’m obviously hoping this isn’t true, but it seems a little too detailed to be made up out of thin air. And can I just take this moment to ask, why are fraternities (and sororities) still a thing? It seems like all the news that comes out of them is negative as all hell.

Interested to see how this turns out…

Jon Hamm just got out of rehab – surprise!

jon hamm

Jon Hamm generally keeps a low profile. He’s handsome, he’s funny, he was on Mad Men… besides that, he sorta keeps himself to himself, which is a rarity in Hollywood and part of the reason he’s so damn likable. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that we’re, well, surprised to hear that Jon just got out of rehab for treatment for alcoholism.

Jon Hamm completed a 30-day rehab program for alcohol abuse, just days before the premiere of the last season of “Mad Men.”

We’re told Hamm checked himself into Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan, Connecticut at the end of February. It’s a high-end facility.

The final season is already in the can.

Hamm’s people tell TMZ, “With the support of his longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm recently completed treatment for his struggle with alcohol addiction. They have asked for privacy and sensitivity going forward.”

I don’t particularly know that 3 weeks of rehab is enough to cure anyone of anything (though with addiction, there is no “cure”, just a constant effort to maintain sobriety) and rehab does tend to be pretty trendy in Hollywood, like booking yourself into an extended spa, but I’ll try to hold back with my cynicism for the moment. Good for Jon for seeking treatment for his problem – hopefully he’s feeling stronger and will be able to maintain it.

Jon Hamm won’t be playing Dr. Strange

Apparently the rumour mill has been going strong when it comes to Jon Hamm, since it seems a lot of people think he’s been approached to play Dr. Strange in the upcoming Marvel movie. Well, sorry to disappoint, but it’s not happening.

From Digital Spy (via Movie Pilot):

“The funny thing about the internet is that you can have rumors go on about possible jobs and possible things that I had no idea about…maybe…I don’t know. You know, it’s funny when the internet knows more about you than you do, but…maybe the internet was talking to Marvel, I don’t know. (laughs) No, I certainly wasn’t approached by (Marvel), but I do like Dr. Strange. He’s a very cool, cool character.”

Well, okay, so maybe he WILL be playing Dr. Strange – at least it leaves the door open for him to be approached, anyway. Do you hear that, Marvel? Go get Jon Hamm!

I’m not familiar with the character so I don’t know whether he’d be a good fit for the role. What do you guys think?

Can we talk about Jon Hamm’s ’90s hair?

jon hamm

Sometimes, something amazing is unearthed and unleashed on the internet and today is one of those days. Jon Hamm, everyone’s favourite Mad Men hunk, may be hot shit now, but turns out back in the ’90s he had a hard time getting the ladies and was turned down on some show called The Big Date.

I don’t even want to spoil this for you, so I think I’ll just leave this here and let you enjoy it in peace. THAT HAIR! Oh, Jon.

Mad Men Fashion Post!

The cast of Mad Men got together at the Paley Center for Media’s PaleyFest 2014 honoring the show, but what’s really important is what they wore. Let’s take a look!

Sadly, my favorite January Jones wasn’t there. Not sure why. Maybe she’s shooting something. Like BIRDS IN HER BACKYARD, AM I RIGHT? (Mad Men joke, okay, moving on.)

The Jon Hamm Dong Show Has a New Episode

Jon Hamm will never learn to wear underwear – that much is clear. You can look at his dong all you’d like and he’s still not going to protect his modesty. No, he’s a free man, a red-blooded American with the right to let his junk hang free wherever he may go! Besides, it’s your fault for looking! As he told Rolling Stone last year:

“They’re called ‘privates’ for a reason. I’m wearing pants, for fuck’s sake. Lay off.”

Yeah, lay off, pervs! Don’t at all pay any attention to Jon Hamm’s dong in the photo above as he goes out for a walk with his dog and his longtime girlfriend, Jennifer Westfeldt in Los Angeles this week. Get your minds out of the gutter and your eyes upwards!
