Jon Hamm Slams Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, General Celebration of Idiocy

by at . Comments

He's one of the most talented actors alive, as well as a member of the Saturday Night Live hosting pantheon. In short: Jon Hamm ruled long before he spoke to Great Britain's Elle magazine.

In the latest issue, though, the Mad Men star says exactly what anyone with an IQ over 12 is thinking: why do so many people care about Kim Kardashian and other reality stars?!?

"We're at a place where the idea of being 'elite' is somehow considered a negative," Hamm says. "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... It doesn't make sense to me."

Mad Men premieres season five on March 25. Let's hope Hamm's rant just earned the tremendous show an even bigger following.
