Fuzzy Hamm

Posted on April 19, 2012

We can’t get behind this one.


Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt attend the Food Bank For New York City 2012 Can-Do Awards Dinner.

No, sir; we canNOT.

We have nothing against beards. On the right guy they can be incredibly hot and flattering. But Hamm, you are not that guy. You’ve got a profile and jawline most men would kill for. Why would you cover that up, Hamm? It’s like putting wallpaper on the Sistine Chapel ceiling.

This is all motivated by jealousy, of course. Especially since you don’t even have the decency to have a gray beard at your age. We were sporting Santa whiskers not long after our 30th birthdays. Those half-dozen white strands only taunt us.

Wipe that shit-eating smirk off your face, Westfeldt. We get it.

      He looks HILARIOUS! I scared my dog with my yelp of surprise upon viewing that picture.

      I hope this is for a role. He looks like one of those magnetic Fuzzy Face toys. It could work if he had the beard trimmed closer to his face.

      • Spicytomato1

        Totally, with every single magnet used up. And then some!

        • Anathema_Device

          I used to spend hours with that toy and with TickleBee. Something about dragging metal around with magnets that fascinated and hypnotized me as a tot.

          • JDreesen

            i used to spend hours in my garage rolling quicksilver around in my palm.  there must have been *some* reason my father kept it out in the garage in a glass vial and told us never to touch it, but i just for the life of me *cannot* determine what that reason might have been.  hippopotamus feather tree.

            oh.  wait.

        • Pinup Ghoul

           He certainly is hirsute, isn’t he?

      • Sara Noonan

        I read somewhere it’s a playoff beard for hockey, so it’s going to stay until the Blues either win it all or are out of contention.  My husband does the same thing for the Packers, so I think I’ve been Stockholm Syndromed into finding it attractive.

        I love Jennifer’s dress, but not as much as I love her smug-ass face.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1084733830 Kate Andrews

          It does sound like something a hockey fan would do. I can always tell when my fb friends are watching hockey because their status updates are always “YESSSS!” or “Dammit!” Cracks me up.

        • Anathema_Device

          Ah, see, I live in the SF Bay Area, so my first thought was the Brian Wilson (of the Giants) “Fear the Beard” thing.

          • Spicytomato1

            Love B Wilson! I’m not from SF but I got had my first “Fear The Beard” experience when visiting last summer. I’ve had a crush on him ever since. My kids will not let me hear the end of it.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NOWQRXMYKVEJBF2FRWGEYQLPUM K

            I also live in the bay area… LOL… hipster ironic mustaches and dad beards are rampant. 90% of the time if a guy has a baby backpack on he also has a beard. Watch… you will be surprised. 

            • Anathema_Device

              Oh, I wouldn’t be surprised. I practically did cartwheels when my husband shaved. He looked like so many other 40-something dads trying to look cool.

              (I didn’t complain about his beard b/c he has stood by me through some of the worst years of hair and clothing fashion…we met in the 80s.)

        • makeityourself

          I believe you are correct. He was shown in the stands watching one of the Blues’ playoff games in St.Louis about a week ago. And he was seated with his high school drama teacher!

      • TieDye64

        Ha! You’re so right. I’d forgotten about those. I was so fascinated with those fuzzy magnets. And I’m with you, hoping this is only for a role. Surely he wouldn’t choose this on his own? 

        My husband can only grown an Amish-shaped beard. It’s the weirdest thing. At least it prevents him from even trying to grow the facial fuzz, thankfully. 

        • Spicytomato1

          Lol at “Amish-shaped beard.” A few years ago when the Chicago Blackhawks made the playoffs, that was the only kind of beard the (young) team captain could grow. The media would not let it go, I felt so bad for the poor kid!

    • AwesomeMargie

      I find it incredibly attractive.  Mmmmm, mmmmm…..

    • Little_Olive

      Damn you, John. But I still love you. 

    • kathryn_dc

      I actually burst out laughing. Shave, Mr. Hamm. Please.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      No!!! I see Michael Scott for some reason and I don’t like it one bit.

      • IAmJ

         Great. Now I won’t be able to unsee it.

    • Sarah Thomas

      Mr. Mumford is highly disappointed in all his sons. 

    • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

      She looks awesome. I sympathize with him. Apparently the Don Draper jawline takes two shaves a day.

      • Spicytomato1

        Yeah, I have noticed that he seems to have a permanent five-o-clock shadow, ala Home Simpson. Now I see why. Wonder how many days it took to grow this? Two, three? :)

        • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

           He was sporting this at some awards show and Michael Gladis (Paul Kinsey) said “he grew that in the limo on the way over.”

          • Little_Olive

            That speaks volumes of his testosterone. Ohh again. 

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NOWQRXMYKVEJBF2FRWGEYQLPUM K

          Idk, my bf has a similar five o’clock shadow… a beard like this would take 5-7 days

      • http://twitter.com/jb5280co Joy

        Agree.  I believe this is his annual hiatus beard, but a very special one this year as part of the hockey tradition of playoff beard as Hamm homeboy fan Loves his St. Louis Blues, who are in the NHL playoffs.  

        Just another reason to love this guy…..

      • lamamu

        JW’s dress is awesome and it fits her like a glove, which is awesome, but I can’t say she looks awesome. I can’t get over the frozen face thing and her seeming inability to notch her smile even a millimeter higher.

        • http://www.GiftedCollector.com Nancy Abrams

          Nothing from anyone about her lining hanging out? It ruins an otherwise gorgeous dress.

          • mixedupfiles

             We all realize it’s because she has Jon Hamm’s arm around her, and so make allowances.

      • Little_Olive

        So much so, they use a scruff when they need to depict Don Draper as lacking in order in his life, you know, in moments of depression/decadence (in the decline sense).   

        You made me think of him yet again. Ohhhh. 

      • http://twitter.com/TMamBo Therese Bohn

          Yep, I suspect he has to shave extra close during MM,his face sprouts like a Play-Doh Factory! Bless him!

    • Sobaika Mirza

      I’ll take my Hamm any way I can get it.

      In the movie with his ladyfriend (Friends with Kids, which was not that great) he doesn’t go full-on furry but does have some trimmed hair. WOOF.

    • Betsy Wasser

      Her hair is so pretty.

    • MK03

      Fellas, let this be a lesson: NOBODY looks good with the crazy hermit beard.

      • lilibetp

        Wasn’t Brad Pitt with the crazy hermit beard lesson enough?

        • Sobaika Mirza

          UGH, that was an awful period in our history. Let’s on even compare Hamm to THAT. At lease his is combed and trimmed and hygienic-looking. Brad Pitt’s could have easily housed a squirrel.

      • JimMcC

        DISAGREE! He looks gorgeous.

        Then again, I’ve been known to find some homeless men v. v. attractive. What?! I like an unkempt man.

      • Terence Ng

        The Bears respectfully disagree. ;)

        • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

          Amen!  Dip him in honey and throw him to the bears.

          • Terence Ng

            Honey-Glazed Hamm. Ha.

      • out for a walk

        I think the beard’s a bit much for the suit, but if you cast him in, say, a lumberjack movie it would be amazing.

    • frcathie

      Is her slip showing? Sorry, I took my eyes away from his face for just a second …

      • SapphoPoet

        I think so.

      • Amy Fee Garner

        Yes.  Both have grooming issues to address; hopefully a tactful PR person was able to steer them back to their respective dressing areas and all of this was taken care of in short order.  Dark slips = better choice with a dark dress.

        • kimmeister

          I don’t think it’s a separate slip, it just appears to be the lining of the dress popping out.

          • TheOriginalLulu

            Such a shame, too, because that dress is otherwise very pretty and it’s doing wonderful things for her figure.

    • Kyle Crawford

      Full out bear as the day is long here but even I prefer him all Draper-esque !!!  ( but still a MASSIVE WOOF/grrrrr/etc…) 

    • rawrgrowlrawr

      Nope, sorry. He still looks delicious in my eyes. Not as tasty as usual, but my loins still approve. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/aboutelle Ashleigh Boutelle

      it’s a very BIG beard…I agree with you guys

    • Mike McGee

      The beard hiding his face makes him look pretty generic.

    • http://twitter.com/Kikishua CMS

      I love her dress.  Apart from the slip slipping out.

    • http://twitter.com/tiffbirchy tiffany birch

      I’m wondering if he’s growing it for a storyline on Mad Men?

      • Glammie

        I wish.  Wouldn’t that be great?  Don hangs out at Woodstock and trips on acid?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

         As much as I love the idea of Don at Woodstock, they’re not currently filming.

        • Glammie

          I like to think that he’s giving himself ample time to grow a major, major beard for Don at Woodstock.  I want to see Janie Bryant’s take on tie-dye and fringe.

    • RebeccaKW

      No.  I can’t get behind the beard.  I’m not a big fan of the facial hair anyway, but I do admit that on some guys, it looks good.  This is not one of the exceptions.  Come back to us, clean-shaven Hamm!

    • http://twitter.com/PlanetSandisan Sandisan

      I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for it, but yeah.  It kinda needs to go.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NMLK23QK6C7NMLMVVYA5POXKJY WhiteMage

      oh yikes. it looks fake. he looks awful. no, jon, noooooo

    • http://theargiehome.blogspot.com/ Gus Casals

      This being a fashion blog and all that, let’s discuss what is that coming out of Jennifer’s hem. Is that a foundation? Part of the design? DON’T ALLOW THE HAMM TO DISTRACT YOU FROM YOUR DUTIES!

      • norseofcourse

        Hamm is a very distracting cut of meat …

      • pattyw

         And the silly putty shoes!

    • lilibetp

      I don’t really see Jennifer’s smirk as being shit-eating; I see it more as being “good grief, can we get this over so I can step away from this furry beast?”

      • kimmeister

        I’ve never quite understood that descriptor of grins or smirks.  Who would smile after doing such a thing?

        • Sobaika Mirza

          No one smiles after they eat shit. It’s more like smiling as you think “Eat shit, you jealous common folk. Look how hot I am/my man is/whatever I’m rich.”

          • kimmeister

            Ah, that makes so much more sense.  Thanks!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1253053236 Belle Burnett

      She knows. She KNOWS!!

    • Carla_Charlton

      The beard isn’t so bad, but the fit that shirt with the high collar — ugh. Frankly, he often has the high collar problem.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=643312238 Marti Phillips

      I usually think a man with a beard is better than a man without. But you are correct, not for him.

    • EEKstl

      Yeah, okay, it’s not working for me either, but he’s still the hottest guy around.  And I Luv. Huh.  Smart, funny, cute, I just hate that every time I look at her I see some sort of “refresher” gone wrong.  Check out “Kissing Jessica Stein” and see what her “real” face looked like.  Lovely.  And I’m not being catty – she’s fab!  I just wish The Industry wasn’t so monstrous and that women could have more confidence in themselves.  I know, I dream.

      • PaulaBerman

         I just looked her up in Jessica Stein and you are right– the difference is quite noticeable, and sad.

      • MissAnnieRN

        I agree.  It makes me sad when some of these fabulous people are obviously insecure enough to have major work done.  This came up the other day with those pictures of Jennifer Grey.  I also saw some Demi Moore pics, and while her arms do not appear to have bones poking out of them anymore, it really looks like she’s had some filler added to her cheeks.  Sometimes I just want to reach through my computer and hug these women and tell them to love themselves and stop it with all the cosmetic procedures.  

    • TAGinMO

      I think he could still look great with several days’ to a week’s stubble, properly maintained. But this? Just no.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1462762652 Tara Benchina Calise

      I do not like this look on him. Why do men do this? Her slip is showing.

    • Beth G

      Is he playing a civil war guy in something?  He’s go a great look for that.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      Between this awful beard and Tom Hardy’s awful beard, I’m one very depressed woman.

    • cmb92191

      I love her dress – minus the slip showing.   The beard.. OMG!  It has to go NOW.

    • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

      I like it. But it would go better with casual clothes. Or none.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=713709401 Randy Noak

      I usually love bears, but I’m with you on this one.

      Oh my god, SHAVE.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=713709401 Randy Noak

    • http://twitter.com/susanpcollier Susan Collier

      Eeek! He looks like that Zach Gaffalackalas person.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1344922354 Eric Scheirer Stott

        And that’s a problem? I’d gladly curl up in Zach’s beard and live.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      love him but that beard only works when your writing your manifesto in a secluded cabin in the woods…

      • TheOriginalLulu

        That made me laugh out loud and my boss looked at me like, What??

    • MarcyMM

      It’s a hockey playoff beard (
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Playoff_beard ) in support of the St. Louis Blues. There’s also a charity component. The man stays true to his St. Louis roots (was in town for the first playoff games here) which makes him even more adorable.

    • SapphoPoet

      He looks like a GI Joe doll I had in the 1970s. 

      Is her slip showing or is that part of the dress?

      • Spicytomato1

        Haha! I was thinking more along the lines of Mod Hair Ken. Same era, different doll.

    • sk8tfan

      He will drink your milkshake. Get your mind out of the gutter, I just mean he looks like Daniel Day Lewis in that movie. Which is actually not a good thing.

    • donnaINseattle

      With Mr. Hamm, like Ewan McG, I prefer the bare face, but by no means is this a bad thing.

    • http://twitter.com/arodenha Alli

      A fuzzy Hamm is better than no Hamm at all. I will take what I can get.

    • Spicytomato1

      Does anyone remember Mod Hair Ken? I don’t know why but I’m having flashbacks to that old doll of mine.

    • Ozski

      I will take Hamm any package he comes in; bearded, shaved, bald. The man is perfection. Also, I think Westfeldt is lovely but too pumped up with fillers. It must be difficult having a partner who is one of the most beautiful human beings on the planet.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      Damn funny commentary TLo.  That beard looks terrible on such a handsome man.  

    • dickylarue

      I’d bet money there’s some Just For Men beard color in that scruff. 

      • PaulaBerman

        Except that there IS some white on his chin, so if he used Just For Men, he did it really poorly.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KFD4YODYT6N2NNTE7ZAHJWQXCM Deirdre

      Now he looks like my dad!!!! D:

    • FashionShowAtLunch

      “Wipe that shit-eating smirk off your face, Westfeldt. We get it.”

      HA!  Awesome.

    • Vaniljekjeks

      Oh, honey, no.  Beards can be super sexy on men.  This is not the case here.  If I ran into him downtown somewhere, I would promptly run in the other direction. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Micaela-Cannon/1465504041 Micaela Cannon

      I usually prefer beards but it does look kind of odd on him.

    • margaret meyers

      Is he playing a period part?  That’s a great Civil War/Henry James/Sherlock Holmes/Freud/Jack London kind ova beard. Hamm would make an awesom John C. Fremont.

    • Terence Ng

      Before, I would have gladly hooked up with him at any time. But now, with a little bit fuller beard (maybe one more week’s growth), I will tackle him and make love to him right there on the red carpet in front of every camera. WOOF.

    • Isana Leshchinskaya

      I’ll even take fuzzy hamm. It must be the transgressive jew in me, but i can’t stay away from hot traif.

    • uprightcitizen

      Don’t mind the beard … although it would look really hot if it were trimmed extremely close, everywhere. But that SUIT makes him look positively chubby and oh so disheveled. Has he got the evening’s program shoved in the inside pocket or something? Just a tiny bit of shirt cuff would help. This looks like my dad with a short-sleeved “dress shirt” under his suit, going to my high school graduation. In 1981.

    • Groucho_Marks

      Mr. Hamm is so gorgeous and here he looks like Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Slayer.  Oh no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CQPXLNCBM5CZSHZZXJDHPVFS7E Buffy

      Yeah, babyyyyy

    • CassandraMortmain

      Oh hell no.  And I usually love men with beards, but this..no.  Also, he’s looking a little chunky.  The jacket looks like it’s pulling through the mid-section.  Further confirmation that for me, Don Draper is the hot one, not Jon Hamm.

      Jennifer Westfeld can’t wipe that smirk off her face because she can’t actually move any part of her face anymore.  She needs to lay off the Botox, stat.  And no more surgery.

    • http://profiles.google.com/grandiva1968 e jerry powell

      Oh, I think I speak for the majority of bears when I say
      to the furry Hamm.

      Hells yeah, I said it. Now break me off a piece of that, lay it out on a plate, and give me a biscuit to sop it up with.

    • JoeAmbroson

      I think he just needs to trim that beard up…as a bearded individual, I am decidedly pro-beard…

    • brokephilosopher

      I started going “no, no, no” before I even clicked.  DEVASTATED.

    • http://twitter.com/unflinchingly Lindsey Romain

      I’m gonna have to disagree. I thin he looks delicious.

    • LuisaNL

      the beard must go. and is he getting a little chunky around the waist?! he’s still yummy tho. 

    • butter nut

      her face says, “i *told* him to shave that shit, but he won’t listen!”

    • marilyn

      I was more interested in her slip hanging down, and that her legs are 10 shades darker than the rest of her exposed skin.  

      • kimmeister

        Good catch, I hadn’t even noticed her leg color.  At least it’s not as bad as Ivanka Trump’s yesterday, which were 87x darker than the rest of her skin.

    • Lilithcat

      That beard really ages him!

    • granddelusion

      HAHAHA! I think he’s skeevy anyway. His wife is sure pretty, though.

    • Presumptuous Insect

      A nice sharp goatee would be faboo.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      Jon Hamm you are just too Hott and Sexxy to be running around channeling Mr. Edwards from Little House on the Prairie.
      This is just plain wrong.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OSYAJATXUH3QX7ZDDF52GXG4PU Janie R

      Is he growing this for a Mad Men episode where he goes off and lives in a commune? 

    • http://needtherapy.tumblr.com/ skadi1

      Hush! I like the beard. I REALLY like it.
      I’ve seen Jennifer Westfeldt act. I think that’s just how her face looks. Let’s be more judgmental over the fact that her slip is showing.

    • GypsyHowell

      I saw him up close at the TimesTalk a month ago.  I know you will find this hard to believe, but he’s better looking in person.

      Yeah, I know. Unpossible.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UCLO5V2YD36T7QMPKOC7YXPOFU Erica

        I have always heard this about Alec Baldwin, too (well, the pre-paunchy Alec).  That he actually isn’t that photogenic and was much better looking in person.  The mind boggles….

      He looks a little boxy.

      It’s like she’s frozen in “cat that ate the canary” land.  Every night.

      false, hamm is one man who i believe and WORK that beard. So attractive to me.

    • bluefish

      I love beards and I like them long and a bit shaggy if they are shampooed every day and kept clean.  His looks clean and I kind of like it — but it does need to be trimmed around the mouth — The top and bottom lips needs to be visible.  She looks cute. 

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      TLO has incited my bear rage.  I love his beard.  Us bears, we want our celebs furry faced and with a bit of a belly.  Unlike TLO, I can get behind Hamm, but from what I’ve seen in this blog of his bulge, I’d much rather get in front of him.  But, I can get behind the dig at Westfeldt.  Yes Miss Lady, lots of gay boys, and LOTS of straight girls HATE HATE HATE you, and you know it, and you know why, and you are delighted by it, and you are rubbing our face in it.

      No sir, I don’t like it. I love Jon Hamm, but that beard has got to go.  Oh, and by the way, Jenn…your slip is showing.  When I was in junior high school, we would say “It’s snowing down south.”

      • Emily Guillory

         Off topic but I always see Mr. Horse on Ren & Stimpy saying “No sir, I don’t like it” in my head whenever someone says that. lolol

      I don’t like hair on men’s faces at all!  Don’t know why.  I don’t like it on their heads either.  But I like it on their backs and everywhere else.  I know.  I’m weird.

    • TheDivineMissAnn

      Never liked beards much….always seems to be something stuck in ‘em.  The skin attached to the beard, well that’s another story!

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      Don’t like the beard on him, either, T and Lo.  And what IS with that smirk from his wife??  It is in every.single.shot!

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Karen-Stephens-Bassett/1503492602 Karen Stephens Bassett

        She is not his wife.  He doesn’t believe in marriage.

      She has great hair and a hot man – I think the grin is entirely in order.

    • Elaine Wiles

      I LOVE a beard, but not this one, on this guy

    • formerlyAnon

      I don’t go for beards.

      But he makes a GREAT 19th century Prominent Citizen & Pillar of Industry.

      Are we sure he’s not auditioning for a bio-pic on, say, James A. Garfield?

      Hey, Westfeldt is a star in her own right.  She hasn’t made a dud of a film, yet.

      I’m sure it is dyed as well.   There is no way there is no grey.  

      • http://twitter.com/TMamBo Therese Bohn

         I don’t think it’s dyed, you can see a little silver in it.

    • nannypoo

      I hate beards, and that is among the ugliest I have ever seen. It must be for a role in a movie that I will refuse to see.

    • Lina_bee

      Ack, no. Not my thing at all.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_RHLSUVX3NCPB4OSS5BM7GZIXUE P. Capet

      he looks like she found him sleeping in a cabin and he just wants to go home to his cot and his bag of potato chips

    • Toto Maya

      DEAR GOD WHY. It looks like a dead animal. Like it’s not even real. I think my life will never be the same for having seen it.

    • BobStPaul

      Not only is the beard pretty hideous, it looks as though he’s put on a lot of weight.  Can’t tell if it’s the cut of the suit, the angle of the photos, or if it’s actually the case.

      • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

        I think the suit is weird, not Hamm.

    • juliamargaret

      I think JW’s smile is the smile of someone who does not want to show her teeth, more than someone trying to smirk. As for Hamm, the beard isn’t bad, but it’s not my favorite look for him.

    • guest2visits

      I don’t mind the beard. It would have been especially nice if he’d bust a smile.
      It looks like they are both trying to control the smile reflex. Wait; they just came from dinner; —
      Perhaps they don’t wish to share what the main course was…?
      They both have nice smiley eyes; but he must have had that second Manhattan. Or a little nap.

    • Cousin_Rose

      I read you on Flipboard and wonder what happened to the GQ Russia cover on green.  He was absolf**king gorge on that cover. And I NEVER swear! Seems it’s worth a blog entry since it was a total werk.

    • NurseEllen

      Chia Hamm?

    • Lisa Kramp

      Sorry darlings, but I have to disagree with you on this one. The only thing better than a chisel-faced man is a chisel-faced man with a beard! And is that her slip showing???

    • momogus

      Ooooh – I love that facial hair on him! GRRRRRR!

    • another_laura

      No, I don’t mind facial hair, but this is a little too lumberjack for me.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=739196218 Leah Burns

      It isn’t even a very good beard. Very thin. Man, his jawline is his best feature. And I’m a lady who likes facial hair.

      Oh. My. God. Your last comment. Too, too funny.

    • AWStevens

      So. Creeped. Out.  He’s looks like a serial killer.  He’s channeling Ted Bundy.  Grizzly Adams I could get behind but NOT this shiz…

    • PrunellaV

      This is the only instance in my life in which I allow myself to have uncharitable thoughts toward the SO of a hot guy. Dammit!

      Maybe it’s because she’s attractive, but not stunning, like he is. So maybe I coulda had him! But she got him! Dammit!

    • Pinup Ghoul

      All I can see is BEIGE SLIP.

      But yeah, pretty awful all around.

    • ccm800

      None for me thanks. It looks like one of those crochet jobs. He really does nothing for me with or without. He had me for a moment in that diner photoshoot featured here but he usually creeps me out.

    • RzYoung

      I LOVE this beard, it’s so regal :) He may keep it forever in my books

    • http://profiles.google.com/phyllis.craine Phyllis Craine

      Honestly if he walked by me on the street I’d never guess it was him

      Grrrrrrrrrrrr…makes me moist like a snack cake! My lumberjack fantasy come true WOOF

      Avigdor, meet me at the swimming hole!

    • http://twitter.com/TheSpankyBlog McSpanky

      I’m not even seeing him. Odd. I can’t take my eyes off her because she looks so sad. Not smirky confident. Sad and lost. 

    • http://twitter.com/jaythenerdkid Aaminah Khan

      He grows a pretty damn impressive beard, though, doesn’t he? Somewhere, millions of boys who’ve never been able to grow anything more than a soul patch are shaking their fists in jealousy.

    • pottymouth_princess

      If y’all hate the beard, multiply it by 2. John Slattery was on WWHL the other night and was sitting with Hamm at a Rangers hockey game. BOTH of them looked like Grizzly Adams. I guess it’s a good disguise with a baseball cap whilst traipsing around NYC. Hilariously, Slattery was seated next to the infamous Danielle Staub of PROSTITUTION WHORE!!!!! fame. 

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      He looks like the lumberjack on the Brawny Paper Towel package.

    • Louise Bryan

      Grizzly McHamm.

    • mrspeel2

      Wow, you boys must REALLY be upset. You didn’t even mention that Jennifer Westfeldt’s slip is showing!

      • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

        Take that, Jennifer! Your life’s not perfect after all!

    • joe_tey83

       That shit eating smirk looks so creepy and weird. Like how a psychopath will smile before strangling a person.

    • bitterk

      I love a gruff look but this looks plain weird on him.  Very unnatural looking.  

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NOWQRXMYKVEJBF2FRWGEYQLPUM K

      It looks like he is one second away from sticking his tongue out at us and saying neener neener neener!! IDK why… just get that VIBE
