Griffin wrote about the time she was seated next to a "very drunk" Jon Hamm at a dinner party thrown by talent agent Sue Menger. Griffin recalled that Hamm had just come off a day of filming Mad Men and got completely wasted during the "coffee table" portion of the evening. By the time everyone sat down to dinner, Hamm was drunk enough to continually interrupt fellow guest Jack Nicholson with "boozy yammering."
Then Hamm randomly attacked Griffin with insults. He started off by saying, "You know your Emmy isn’t a real Emmy," before leaning over and whispering "You’re so o-o-o-old" in her ear. Ick, you can almost smell the alcohol on his breath.
But the sharp comedian has never been afraid of firing back, so she wrote some pretty cutting things about Hamm in the book. This is what she has to say about the man she considers her "nemesis."
He’s one of these hot guys who’s mildly funny but actually thinks he’s comedian level funny. You know the type — there’s probably one in your office or family. He just reeks of that. It’s an entitled air. When Hammy wants to be funny, he’s, well, not.
Jon Hamm has gone to rehab for alcoholism, so hopefully the dude has learned from his messy past and moved on. Sounds like Griffin is still holding that grudge, though.
