We know someone who won’t be shopping at Dash anytime soon! Actor Jon Hamm, seen here yesterday (March 8) leaving his home while looking dashing, has accused Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton of making “stupidity” fashionable.
The Mad Men star is dismayed at the dumbing-down of celebrity culture in recent years, insisting being a “f**king idiot” is almost a guarantee of success.
And he’s singled out hotel heiress Hilton and reality TV star Kardashian as emblematic of the problem. Hamm told Britain’s Elle magazine, “We’re at a place where the idea of being ‘elite’ is somehow considered a negative. Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly. And incuriousness has become cool… It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.”
