He plays a womanizer on the small screen, but could it be a case of life imitating art for “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm?
According to a new report just published on The Daily, Hamm has been out and about acting very much single– despite having a girlfriend of almost 15 years, Jennifer Westfeldt.
Jon Hamm won’t find out if he’s TV’s best actor until Sept. 23. But there’s one thing he’s definitely talented at — acting like he’s a single man. Although he’s been in a serious relationship with girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt for almost 15 years, Flash has learned exclusively that Hamm has been hitting the bars hard in recent weeks, chatting up pretty women who aren’t his girlfriend.
Hamm first raised eyebrows while visiting Kansas City, Mo., for baseball’s All-Star Game. Flying solo at a Yahoo-sponsored VIP party at CrossroadsKC at Grinders on July 8, he chatted up a hot blonde wearing a sheer shirt — a dead ringer for his absent girlfriend.
“He was super nice!” the woman told Flash. “I joked with him about taking a picture with a Jayhawk,” the University of Kansas mascot, since “there is a slight ‘border war’ between [Hamm’s alma mater] the University of Missouri and the University of Kansas, and he was a great sport about it.” The two even posed for a cozy picture. “Many, many of my friends are jealous of that one,” she said.
Later that week, he got up close and personal with a gorgeous brunette in Rome. Photos from the OCTO The New Architecture of Time by Bulgari dinner on July 13 show Hamm getting handsy with gorgeous Italian actress Anna Safroncik. Westfeldt was nowhere to be seen.
One week later, he was at it again during at night out at Hot Bird in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Thursday, where he was accompanied by a statuesque blonde — again, not Westfeldt. “He didn’t even really want to go out, but I convinced him,” she was overheard bragging at the bar on Monday. Once there, she said, he pounded lagers and “was surprised nobody was coming up to him!”
But apparently, he soon found a solution to that problem. Accompanied by fellow actor pals Jon Glaser and Eugene Mirman, Hamm hit on the female bargoers, according to Twitter user @crashnabula. “They had no game either,” he tweeted the next day. “They just bought drinks for every mediocre girl they approached, and the girls dipped after 10 min of convo.”
All just a bit of innocent conversation? Perhaps. Or maybe he was just in character as mad man Don Draper. But with the recent blind items and Internet buzz surrounding Hamm, his secret nights out are sure to come under even more scrutiny.
