So, of all the celebrities campaigning for President Obama — Jay-Z and Katy Perry included — props have to be given to everyone’s favorite, pants-fillin’ Mad Men star Jon Hamm who has also quietly and steadily been encouraging folks in Colorado to vote and Gobama! He was almost entirely too handsome in the recent campaign video he was featured in, asking people to “make a plan: You can either vote by mail or vote early in person.” And then he and his pants went out to the public and we are overwhelmed by the results. Especially with the photograph of him and his pants on top of an Obama bus which would get us to perv out if it wasn’t for such a good cause. If there’s anything that would get us to sit up and listen other than Jon Hamm, it’s Jon Hamm in a newsboy cap.
He also shared a story which happened during his Colorado trail, saying, “I had a 13 year old girl come up to me in Colorado -this is a dead true story- and say, “Well, you’re a wealthy white male… why are you here?” And I was like, first of all, that’s the greatest question I’ve been asked on this entire tour. But secondly, she had conflated somehow in her head that only people vote for their own kind. And I made sure to tell her that that’s absolutely not the case.” That’s when we stopped and swooned and thought about how smart he was. Then he added, “I vote for what I think is best for all of us. Not simply for me. And that’s unfortunately the message that the other side wants to get across, is you just take care of yourself and you build a fence around yourself and no one else gets help. That’s not how I was raised, that’s not the America I wanna live in and that’s not the America that I believe in.” And that’s when we pretty much saluted him. Go vote, folks! Here’s a bonus picture of Jon and girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt asking you to do just that!

Sometimes the best fashion accessory isn’t a cool bag or awesome sunglasses, but a loving partner! The red carpet for the 2012 Emmy Awards was awash with adorable PDAs from some of the biggest A-listers in television. Breaking Bad star and newly minted Emmy winner Aaron Paul could hardly keep his hands off of his lovely fiance Lauren Parsekian, and Broke Girl Kat Dennings was seen looking deep into the lovey dovey eyes of boyfriend Nick Zano. Power couple Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt looked very much the adoring duo (and now we know what that special twinkle in her eye is all about). Jon’s Mad Men costar Christina Hendricks came in on the arm of husband and 500 Days Of Summer goofball Geoffrey Arend. Head on down to the gallery below for some awww-inspiring photos from the 62nd annual Primetime Emmys!

Well, we always wondered why Mad Men’s Betty put up with Don’s cheating ways for so long, and why Megan forgave him after that time he left her at the Howard Johnson’s in the middle of nowhere, and why all those clients were OK with his weird “creative” outbursts. Also, in real life, we weren’t why Jon Hamm’s longtime girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt was putting up with all those rumors of him having a little too much fun without her at various bars … all over the world. Well, thanks to some pics snapped of Jon and Jen out and about in New York City on Friday, we have our answer.
Is it because he likes going shopping at Barney’s with his lady? Because he’s so comfortable in his own skin that he doesn’t bother ironing his incredibly wrinkled shirt? Because he’s so darn funny and charming? Maybe…
Megan Fox may have whined her way out of a role in Transformers 3, but it’s too soon to write her off yet. After all, how many of you ladies are spending this week snowboarding with Jon Hamm in a ski lodge on Mt. Peter? Their snowtime fun was part of the shoot for Friends With Kids, an ensemble comedy also featuring Kristen Wiig and Adam Scott. The movie is directed by Jon Hamm‘s long-time partner Jennifer Westfeldt, who previously wrote and starred in Kissing Jessica Stein. Hamm and Wiig will play one couple, Scott and Westfeldt another, while Fox stars as the woman Scott dates after leaving Westfeldt. Megan was pretty decent hosting SNL—maybe comedies are her future? Even if it flops, there are worse ways to run out your career than hanging out with Jon Hamm.
