Last week, Danger brought you news that Jon Hamm may have told a little fib about walking on to the University of Texas baseball team but quitting after he had to catch a fastball from Roger Clemens (Clemens, in fact, attended the University of Texas a decade before Hamm). As Hamm continues to do the publicity circuit in support of the fifth season premiere of “Mad Men” this Sunday, his lies continue to get bolder. Take this whopper, he unleashed in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“I don’t necessarily think of myself like the handsome guy. That’s reserved for Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds and those guys,” the 41-year-old explained in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “It’s certainly nice when people say nice things about you, don’t get me wrong. I guess I never really thought of myself that way. I just wanted to be a regular person and try to portray parts as varied as I could.”
Jon Hamm doesn’t consider himself handsome? I appreciate the man’s modesty, but COME ON. Either that’s a dirty lie or the man has never looked into a mirror before or seen any of the million magazine covers graced with his face? I’m a big believer in suspension of disbelief, but for anyone — including the man himself — to suggest that he’s nothing more than a breathtakingly handsome block of dimpled-chin ruggedness is stretching the limits of credibility. And to suggest that Ryan Reynolds is more handsome? I think even R-Squared’s forehead might take issue with that.
We all know who should’ve been The Green Lantern, but Hamm probably took one look at the script and said, “Let that goofy kid from the pizza place show have it. I got better things to do, like stand in front of a mirror and admire the good-looking fella with the strong jaw staring back at me.”
