It was weird enough when Rory Gilmore (better known as Alexis Bledel) time traveled back into 1966 and turned up on Mad Men as a clinically bummed out housewife. It got even weirder when the blue eyed beauty turned her affections toward Vincent Kartheiser’s character Pete Campbell of all people. Yes, he of the legendary bitch face! But now we have a report that the two actors are hooking up in real life, and our TV loving minds can’t handle it.
A witness spotted Alexis and Vincent getting cuddly while boring an airplane at JFK, and immediately shot Crushable the following email:
They came over to the gate right as I was boarding and I saw him first. His hair is fuller and he’s got a beard, but I recognized him right away. Then he walked over and a girl with him sat down and it was Rory fucking Gilmore. They are not sitting in first class but him right in front of her in middle seats. Guess they booked last minute. He was leaning over the back of his seat talking to her and leaned over and kissed her.
It’s an impressive score for Vincent, considering the scuzzy make under he received for this season of Mad Men. To give the illusion of a receding hairline, the dedicated actor had a small portion of his head shaved! “It would be shaved back every couple of episodes another quarter of an inch,” he told the Hollywood Reporter. “Later, when it grew back in, it looked completely ridiculous, like a five o’clock shadow.” He also had to pack on the pounds to complete the whole “disgruntled middle aged dude without hope” look. “I gained about 25 pounds — none of it muscle. It was a very thin layer of hot fudge sundae, chicken wings and pizza.”
But at the end of the day, we guess Alexis was able to look past appearances and see Vincent for what he really is: a man without a toilet. Or maybe she has a thing for coworkers. She’s already dated fellow Gilmore Girls actor Milo Ventimiglia. We’re guessing she’s a method actress.
