Jon Hamm Will Work for Food

Posted on August 03, 2012

We don’t care if you have a killer smile and a predilection for going commando, Jon Hamm.


Jon Hamm attends “The Campaign” New York Premiere in New York City.

This is NOT acceptable.

Oh, you silly ladies and queens are all going to defend him now, aren’t you? Stay firm, kittens. Have standards. “Drunken hobo” is NOT sexy.

  • He is best seen NAKED.

    • Tara

       Where, perchance, can I see him naked?  Oh wait, there’s an episode of Mad Men where he’s nekkid, no?

      • Scott Hester-Johnson

         Seriously? Jon Hamm has a gross body unclothed. Keep yer clothes on, Don Draper.

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    Shirley you jest! NOT sexy??? Is the Pope NOT Catholic?

  • Cute shot of his eyes as I hadn’t realized how green they were, but for a premier for a movie that you’re in? Hell, no.

  • Chickadeep

    I’m sorry, but THIS particular Drunken Hobo totally gets a pass. 

    • You know that joKe “would you rather do -insert horrible thing- or lick a homeless man’s balls”… so… yeah. 

    • Lisa_Cop

      Not from me. Unless you are the great Tom Ford ( who sports fairly minimal growth ) get a shave and a shower, take that stupid cap off your head and for God’s sake, tuck in your shirt. Only really handsome guys in their early 20’s get the kind of fashion leeway you can no longer have as a 41(?) year-old. Please dress and groom with your age in mind. Even my hubs knows that othwise you just look like a bum.

  • I’d still hit it.

    • call_me_schmeg

      come here baby, let me iron your wrinkles…

      • Rand Ortega

         ALL of them…

  • Maria Rosenfire

    I’d like this picture better if he were wearing nothing but that smile.

    /creep  (but really, anything would be an improvement over his hobo not-chic aesthetic)

  • Doesn’t the man own an iron? Or have someone who owns an iron? Jesus. 

  • OMG. This is Don Draper after his lost weekend bender with low-rent hookers and diner waitresses. Unapproved. Unacceptable. Disallowed.

    • Adriana_Paula

      But he looks like he had such a good time over the weekend…

  • Yup. I’m gonna defend him. I don’t give a rat’s ass what this man is wearing.  He’d be hot in freaking overalls.

    • Chickadeep

       Or jorts. Hell, he could wear something out of the 1975 J.C. Penney catalog and I’d probably still think he was hot.

      • 1975 J C Penney would be SUPER hot – total Boogie Nights fantasy!

        • n a

          lmao girls- jorts? JC Penney! 

      • Tara

         I call them “shants.”

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Hell.Yes. This man is simply hot.  Lord, what a smile….
      I have to lie down and fan myself now…..

  • Trisha26

    That dockworker missing from On The Waterfront has been found. 

  • avabee

    Oh, I’d still hit it.

  • ~~eyes go swirly~~ Must. Not. Criticise. Jon Hamm’s sexy.

  • Patricia Gillett

    C’mon you guys! He was clearly leaving the audition for the new “Grapes of Wrath” remake!

    Ugh, how many stylists would kill to work with John Hamm and he shows up in public looking like THIS! For shame.

  • mommyca

    somehow it was a case of scroll down fug… but still Hamm on a Friday is always a very good thing…. wrinkly or not 🙂 

  • Looks like Hamm took the “Hobo Code” too far.

  • Ok for specificity, he clearly pulled those pants and shirt out of the laundry hamper of a Dilbertish IT nerd. The hat is an abomination. He must shave and I swear his teeth look like they need brushing.. Shoes, jacket and smile are OK but everything else is painful and sending to my Betty Draper fainting couch with the vapors.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      he can pull my dirty clothes out of the laundry hamper and do the walk of shame in them, because what sort of situation would that imply had happened?  john hamm doing the perp walk, incriminating me by wearing my clothes?  i would make sure everyone i loved saw him leave my house, and i would damn well make sure everyone i hated saw him leave my house wearing my dirty clothes.

  • Vlasta Bubinka

    My husband dresses better when he runs to put the recycling bin out for pick up at 4am….

    That Hamm needs to be chilled…

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Don Draper/Dick Whitman just stumbled awake after a terrible bender.  No steam irons in the realm of the disheveled.

    And this is written rather sorrowfully.  I have an utterly devastating clipping from the NY Times a couple of years ago up on display on my desk here – Jon Hamm as Don Draper in the first season of “Mad Men.”  He’s sitting at a restaurant table, in his dark jacket, white dress shirt and dark rep tie, sleek and gorgeous.  Yes, that’s a still from the show, but… geeze, Jon.

  • Can he LOOK dirtier??? Sheesh!

    • I like my Hamm dirty. The dirtier, the better.

  • tuck in that shirt, and im willing to lay down my life in his defense*.
    but this is simply not acceptable!

    *or, you know, just lay down. with him. whatever ^^

    • TheOriginalLulu

      Tuck it in? I say take it off.

      • TieDye64

        Yeah. OFF with his pants!

  • TropiCarla

    So … if he smells WAY better than he looks, I will deign to forgive him …. as soon as I settle into a comfortable position perched on his lap in a comfy chair.

  • PastryGoddess

     but I can’t stop looking at his smile
    and his crotch…but mostly his smile

  • I want a Hamm hug!

  • fnarf

    I dunno about the hobo look but that shirt is pure cream.

  • MK03

    Psh. You expect me to look at this man, rocking that delicious scruff and with an expression that says “Hey, you’re awake. Which would you like first, breakfast or round 2?” and NOT get so flustered I forget my own name?? 

  • This drunken hobo is invited to show up at my door particularly if he work for food… I’ve got some work for you, baby, and you’re gonna be hungry after.

  • sweet_potato

    Sorry, he still looks HOT.

  • letter_M

    Dirty is HOT.  

  • Kristina Toma

    This could’ve (maybe) worked had it been way more polished. The elements are cute but the wrinkled execution is what kills it. In the bad way. 

    Though, his personality still manages to pull it off, sort of. Somehow? No, not really. 

    Judging aside, I’d still hit it. 

  • RebeccaKW

    I think my biggest issue is the fact that he’s so wrinkled.  Well, and he hasn’t shaved.  IMO, he is not a guy that looks good with scruff.  That shirt is too big?  Too long?  Either way, needs to be tucked in.  I might not hate the pants so much if the shirt was better.

    Seriously, it’s Jon Hamm and I will never not find him hot, but he’s looked better.  And if you saw this on a guy at the bar, you wouldn’t notice if he was hot under all that b/c you’d be so turned off by the clothing.  

    • Apparently, he’s quite hirsute and has to shave like twice a day if he wants to avoid 5 o’clock shadow. So he probably did shave morning of. And I’m not normally one for stubble (chafing) but for Jon Hamm, I wouldn’t care.

  • donnaINseattle

    I am SO totally defending Hamm. I will always so totally defend Hamm. Hamm is to me that Tilda is to y’all.

  • Drunken hobo is sexy when it’s drunken HAMM hobo.

  • DesertRodent

    Look at his eyes. He knows exactly what line he’s crossing. Surely his mom taught him better than that.

    • raininmai

       Poor guy lost his mom when he was ten. 🙁

      • DesertRodent

        That explains so much. In that case, I’d definitely feed him breakfast.

  • AJ

    I like the jacket, and I like the cap, but the two of them paired with the rumpled and untucked shirt and the wrinkled pants? No. Just. No. Especially not for a premier. The whole look screams midnight grocery run for toilet paper, not red carpet.

  • DesertRodent

    And yes, I would feed that bum some breakfast.

  • Sara__B

    YES for a quick trip to the grocery store on your day off. NO for your movie premier. 

  • ninjac

    If he had just tucked his shirt in and put on a belt this would’ve been fine, though a little seasonally inappropriate. Not up to normal standards mind you, but fine.

  • Amy

    Boy, that is not your outfit! I advise you take it off right this second. 😉

  • ScarlettHarlot

    ““Drunken hobo” is NOT sexy.”
    But Dick Whitman LIVES by the hobo code!! 

  • All handsomeness aside, which I do greatly admire: iron that shirt, tuck it the hell in, and shave, for God’s sake.  Plus, is the fact that he’s wearing a heavy leather jacket IN AUGUST along the same lines of all these starlets wearing holiday dresses?  I’m confused.

    I’d still tap that, but fer cryin’ out loud….

  • Do none of these people own a lint roller?

  • Kyle Crawford

    was he doing yard work and forgot he had to be someplace???  Does he not love us anymore ?!?

  • DaveUWSNYC

    My only quibble is the shirttails preventing assessment of commando status..

  • SpcilK

    I beg to differ, he’s still HOBO HOT!

  • i’ve never actually found him attractive. maybe because of Don Draper associations, but I always seem to see a bit of a douche dancing behind his eyes. so that coupled with him looking like he just came from the temp-labour office (but self-consciously so: this looks like he put an effort in to look grubby, everything is dishevelled just so) pushes him into definitely would not bang territory.

    and i generally have a bit of a thing for the gutter looking guys.  

    • Amy Ellinger

      Seconded, and well said.
      even my husband has a hard time believing me- “really? you’d pass on Don effing Draper?!”

  • sashaychante

    Leather wearin’ in the summertime

    I don’t get it.

  • I’d still hit it.

  • MilaXX

    Seeing this make me want to hug Zach G. even more. Just cause you’re cute doesn’t mean you don’t have to put forth effort.

  • raininmai

    Oh, he just had sex in the car on the way to the event. Of course he’s a mess!

  • GorgeousThings

    I wouldn’t kick this particular drunken hobo out of bed for eating crackers.

  • fungstyle

    tuck in the shirt and lose the hat and he’d look fine. not spectacular or anything, but fine. 

  • queeniethebold

    It doesn’t matter how handsome or charismatic you are, Jon Hamm.

    This is just nasty. Lazy and nasty. And? Impolite. And? Uncivilized. 

    • Amy Ellinger

      borderline douchey.

      • aeg66

        Nah. He crossed the border Is well into douchey territory.

  • Toto Maya

    Man… see, he still looks like he took a shower. So I’m okay with it. If I feel like I can smell him through the computer, then it’s gross.

  • Terence Ng

    I am against this primarily because his shirt being untucked makes it nigh impossible to see his commando bulge. Unacceptable.

  • AlexisPayne

    For Shame! He’s gorgeous, sexy, etc, but I’d much rather see him clean shaven in a perfectly tailored suit.

  • tereliz

    He’s like the poster child for the Dr. Peter Venkman Laundry Philosophy: “I have more than two grades of laundry. There’s not just clean and dirty. There are many subtle levels. Okay?” 

    Yes, and they’re all found on the floor. 

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Is this a recent picture??? It’s in the 90’s here in New York so this leather jacket and cap are making me swoon…and so is Jon Hamm. 

  • Cathy S

    What the heck? DId he sleep in that?

    • MilaXX

       Looks like a male walk of shame outfit

  • mshesterp

    I might have even given a pass for the top half, if the bottom half didn’t look so dang wrinkled.  Or honestly, maybe it’s just the baggy, limp shirt.  He could do casual WAY better.

  • clothing comes off, but the face is always permanently attached… so teh outfit is not a problem

  • BeeBeauNYC

    What else are you going to wear if you’ve just gotten out of bed having sex for the fifth time in a day?

  • Its so hard to have standards when its Jon Hamm. I’m all for supporting drunken hobos when looking at his face.

  • BayTampaBay

    He looks more and more like Hugh Laurie every day.

  • Judy_J

    I prefer my Jon Hamm in full Don Draper drag.

  • Czarina5 Czarina5

    TLo — you misunderstood his intentions….the Hamm put a lot of effort into dressing down like this to make Zach Galifianakis look better at his own premiere.  According to your earlier post today, it worked.  So give Hamm the credit he deserves.  Check out the video posted by SVEDKA on YouTube of the Hamm moving in this outfit as he photo-bombed Zach on the red carpet!  Simply poetry in motion….that is, hamm motion.

  • Not sexy.  Definitely sloppy. We get it, you’re not Don Draper in real life. 

  • TheOriginalLulu

    The killer smile, gorgeous green eyes and sexy chin scruff ALMOST had me declaring that he can do no wrong, but he’s a wrinkled mess. What the hell? That hat is all linty, like he fished it out from the bottom of his closet and put it on.

    Still, I wouldn’t kick him out of my bed. 🙂

    • l_c_ann

      But with that chin scruff, you’d have a lasting memento ……to be left to your imagination.

    • Pennymac

      I was just thinking he fished it off of the floor of the bedroom and put it on. Maybe the floor of my bedroom?

  • kat89

    He’s a mistake I would like to make…

    • EEKstl

      Not that I quote Sheryl Crow on a regular basis — or…ever — but he would be my favorite mistake. But yes, he is still a rumpled mess.

  • sk8tfan

    I like the startled look in eyes, like “you mean this ISN”T McLeary’s pub?” Go sleep it off in the alley.

  • j_anson

    That is RIDICULOUS.

  • AWFUL.

  • julnyes

    That is a very wrinkled outfit.

  • Wellworn

    I would be first in line to be his personal groomer.  Please let me iron and lint roll you, Jon.  While naked, of course.

  • I’d like him if he was wearing an actual drunken hobo.

  • Maybe he forgot where he was supposed to be, and thought this thing was tomorrow, and remembered while he was out walking the dogs, and grabbed a cab and ran over? 

  • Sorry, TLo, the man can’t NOT be sexy.  It’s just a law of nature.  Like the earth revolving around the sun.  The whole natural universe is founded on the principal/his sexiness.  

  • sweetlilvoice

    What a waste! At least the hat is cute….

  • plinkiedoodle

    Drunken hobo is never sexy.  Not even if it’s John Hamm.

  • Yes, the housing situation is very unfortunate.

  • emcat8

    I’m not defending this. Totally unacceptable. But I will say that’s definitely a hobo with the best leather jacket I’ve ever seen on a person scaring passersby for change.

  • butterflysunita

    I am a Jon Hamm fan, but no, no, no.  This Slobovia look will not get a pass.

  • granddelusion

    Slime. Ball.

  • n a

    hahahhaha! drunken hobo!! yes- perfect!  Sorry- not defending his dirty-ness and yellow teeth, but still love him… sigh… 

  • Emmyllou

    Maybe he’s rebeling.  As a rebel from way back I respect his fillip at the world of ‘should,’ ‘must,’ & ‘gotta.’  Who among you doesn’t know what it’s like to fly in the face of so-called good form? And really (dot, dot, dot) look at that smile. (*SIGH*) Okay, I’m done.

  • ” ‘Drunken hobo’ is NOT sexy.”
    Sez you.

    Sez me.Oh, Yes.Yes, it is.Yes, indeedy do it is, it is.

    Then again, I’m more faun than unborn-fawn.

  • luluransom

    Unacceptable. Yet still so hot.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    John Homeless, amirite?

  • Daniel Casarez

    I’m so happy his teeth are a natural color and not that fluorescent bleach white.

  • Depends on the drunken hobo. This one is dead sexy. 

  • joe_tey83

    When you are that good looking, you can get away with anything. ANYTHING. “Standards” are for mere mortals.

    Think of the role-playing scenes we can play with Drunken Hobo!!!

  • sisterb67

    Walking the dog on a brisk fall morning? Yea. For a movie premiere?  NAY. NAY NAY NAY.  Robert’s rule of order: the nays have it. 

  • Shave and haircut,two bits!
    Someone throw this guy a couple of pennies.  And an iron.  Hell, just strip him, it’s summer.  He’ll live.

  • I can neither blame him nor defend him. I don’t see any clothes when I’m looking at him.

  • Call me Bee

    Gentlemen–I gree.  I don’t care who you are–when appearing at a function hosted by your boss (if you are an actor–the people who paid for and publicise whatever piece of work you act in are your bosses for the time being,) this is not the way to look.  Show a little effort. 

  • Dagney

    whatever….you guys are jealous.  the man could wear a potato sack and be acceptable.  IN

  • snarkykitten

    drunken hobo only works on younger guys

  • Tara

    I just opened up the internet, like you open up the fridge, thinking “God, I wish some Jon Hamm was in here.”  I went to Tom and Lorenzo’s, and lo, there was Hamm.  Thank you.

    He looks like a piece though.  And I don’t mean “ass.”  I mean “crap.”  Wrinkled shirt, stubble.  We get it.  We get what he’s doing.  We don’t like it.  Stop.

  • turtleemily

    I need to go rewatch his surprise Daily Show appearance from last week to erase this from my brain.

  • aeg66

    Just tuck the damn shirt in, grab a belt & I’d be thrilled.

  • frannyprof

    Sexy hobo is so in right now. At least, it is in my universe.

  • DCSheehan

    Totally agree, boys. I love my Hamm but this looks lazy rather than scruffy chic. F.

  • tinyredlocks

    This was in NY? It was like 90 degrees today! I dont’ care how fine you usually are. LEATHER JACKET IN AUGUST IN THE CITY? WTF?!

  • AWS

    He looks stoned out of his gourd.   Where the fuck is Jennifer Westfeldt?  She’s the one who know how to dress him properly…

  • Linderella

    *I* dress better to go to the movies.  Now if I only looked like Jon Hamm.

  • cleep1000

    At least we know he’s human, now. He makes mistakes!

  • Le_Sigh

    Shave damnit.  At least do that!

  • guest2visits

    This would be great if he were just out and about. I mean really great.   
    But not for a premiere.

  • Rebecca Jay

    Cute scruffy, but he’s no Detective Stabler.

  • elemspbee

    and wrinkled clothes! yew.

  • ccm800

    mess. Looks like he’s one drink away from an intervention. 

    • understateddiva

      This photo makes me worried – he doesn’t usually show up at official events looking like he doesn’t give a shit, and I hope he’s ok.

      • littlemac8

        It makes me worried too if the gossip about him is true – quitting drinking and back at it again.  It’s alarming how disrespectful this looks.  And if he thinks he’s being funny, it’s an immature joke.  This coming from one who loves him to bits!

  • hi.  i’m jon hamm.  i just crawled out of a dumpster.

  • formerlyAnon

    Oh, my stars and garters! He is not my type, not really even type-adjacent. But how, how, HOW can you criticize the wielder of that smile & those eyes, crinkles and dimples and all? Oh my!

    I almost didn’t notice the unshaven state.

    But you are right about the ensemble. 

  • TieDye64

    What? He can’t hire someone to press his pants? Hobo chic does NOT exist! But, damn those eyes. Mmmm.

  • loverungay

    Looks like he was napping and got a call reminding him to be at the event and picked up clothes from the floor to get there in time to be photographed.  Embarrassing.

  • I won’t defend this. He needs to whiten his teeth, shave, bathe….and that’s just for starters. I love him but I’m with you boys.

  • MissAnnieRN

    I come from a part of the country where this look would be considered “dressed up.”  But rules are different for celebrities than they are for North Country outdoorsy types.  

  • With a smile like that, who gives a damn what he’s wearing.

  • librarygrrl64

    Agreed. NOT sexy.

  • Tina G

    He looks like Dick Whitman’s dad in the 1930s from the first season of MadMen.

  • MmmmmmmmK

    Yes it is.

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    i’d like him better if he got all the dust off his hat.
    also, maybe, just hang the pants up overnight if you dont wanna iron em? that’ll get the worst out. & a few pieces of tape run around the crown woulda eased the dust matter right up. the untucked shirt is real common in LA for guys insistent on proving [to themselves, i guess] that theyre not metrosexual–by which i mean exactly that, metro & not gay or bi. dont ask me, i think the idea is that they are just not themselves when they fuss.

    ps. i gotta say that he looks pretty friendly here, however.

  • LilyPad

    He’s at a movie premier? Srsly?? Shameful.
    He can come live at my house. I’ll clean soap him up and give him a real hot meal.

  • PeaceBang

    Yum! I’ll have two!

  • Mike Owens

    Consider yourself defended, Jon. You can “Drunken Hobo” all over me anytime!
