Is Jon Hamm engaged to his girlfriend of 13 years, Jennifer Westfeldt?


Us Weekly just put this story up, and I swear to God, my heart almost stopped. Apparently, there was a random report floating around that Jon Hamm had finally proposed to his girlfriend, the American Kate Middleton, Jennifer Westfeldt. The Hamm and Westfeldt have been together for 13 years, and The Hamm has stated several times that he’s not really into marriage, and that he and Jennifer already feel married and committed and everything. For her part, Jennifer doesn’t say much of anything, because why would she? She’s spent 13 years riding The Hamm (drool) and she’s not about the rock the boat now. Anyway, The Hamm denies that he and Jennifer are getting hitched:

Mad Men’s Jon Hamm isn’t ready to make an honest woman out of Jennifer Westfeldt, his girlfriend of 13 years.

Though recent reports claimed the actor, 39, was secretly engaged to the former 24 star, Hamm cleared things up when caught up with him at Charlize Theron’s Africa Outreach Benefit in NYC Monday.

“That rumor comes up every six months or so it seems,” Hamm told Us. “But if you hear anything different, you let me know.”

So what’s the hold-up? According to the actor, being in a successful longterm relationship isn’t always easy.

“Like anything else, you pay attention to it and work hard at it,” he explained.

Perhaps the actor has good reason to be cautious about settling down: he previously told Parade that both he and Westfeldt, 40, grew up in divorced households.

“I don’t have the marriage chip,” he said. “Jen is the love of my life, and we’ve already been together four times longer than my parents were married.”

I have to say, even though I want to smack Jennifer’s faux-Lisa Kudrow BotoxFace, it’s pure seething, raging jealousy on my part. I wish I was in her position for just one night. I wish The Hamm Dong was mine, just briefly, so I could gaze upon its magic. I also have to begrudgingly admit that The Hamm seems to genuinely love her, and treat her with respect, and it seems like he doesn’t even look at other women, you know? She’s such a lucky bitch. So deserving of the slut-shank.

    She reminds of the Beaver in Crazy Mels new movie.

  2. hellena says:

    Whatever makes them happy. Why do they have to marry? When it worked so well the past 13 years…
    Her cheeks are scaring me, though…o.ô

  3. Brooke says:

    her botox/fillers/whatever make her look so old. and perhaps explain the inveterate smarminess of her smile.

  4. anti says:

    that side view of her cheek implants… is disturbing…

  5. brin says:

    Let it all out, Kaiser…even if it’s true, you still have Gerry.

  6. latam says:

    he’s really not as good looking as everyone makes out. dudes got no lips.

  7. caroline says:

    but she was so great in “kissing jessica stein,” kaiser!

  8. melinda says:

    I can’t believe Jessica Stein snagged the Hamm!

  9. Franny says:

    The Hamm always looks out of place in this decade. He just belongs in the 60s and not smiling. When I see pictures of him smiling its so…confusing.

  10. Angela says:

    I always notice when celebrities get botox/injections, but I wonder why blog editors feel the need to point them out only for some people. For example, Julianna Margulies’ face looks quite tight and her forehead doesn’t move, but since she’s well liked nobody talks about it. Sandra Bullock’s face is also different than it was several years ago, but she’s liked so it doesn’t get mentioned.

    I guess plastic surgery is only okay if you like the actor/actress who does it.

  11. dread pirate cuervo says:

    He looks exactly like my ex from the mid-90’s, but with blue eyes. The ex had a nice piece, so I’m going to say Hamm does, too. She looks like a Renee Zellweger/chipmunk/muppet hybrid.

  12. PrettyLights says:

    Hamm is pretty hot when he’s glowering, and I agree that his smile always seems weird to me. That poor woman’s cheek implants, they look so painful and not natural at all…

  13. Jeri says:

    Such an odd couple.

  14. Kaiser says:

    Angela – Um, I’ll call anybody out for having work and lying about it. I honestly don’t think Juliana is messing with her face, but I think Sandra Bullock got her eyes done a while back – circa 2001, 2002.

  15. bros says:

    did she just get those massive cheek implants? it looks like they are still settling because they are pushing her eyes up and she looks weird when she smiles. she actually looks swollen. is this recent? kaiser, do you have any photos of her a year ago for comparison?

  16. Fauxhemian Delight says:


    Must focus attention on something else to get over this terrible, terrible news. I agree Angela. Sandra Bullock has had her entire face re-done, botox, lift and all. But everyone loves Sandy so it’s cool.

  17. anti says:

    here’s an early photo, but her cheek bone structure should be the same right?

    • Andrea says:

      Wow. She used to be pretty and normal-looking. I just saw her on The Talk and she can’t even move her mouth right to talk. Looks very creepy.

  18. lola lola says:

    If the relationship works as it is, why change it? Remember what happened to Helen Hunt & Hank Azaria. In love for 8 years, got married and broke up in less than a year….

  19. Westcoaster says:

    “Hamm Dong”!!! That is priceless!

  20. Feebee says:

    Christ it’s 2010 and you’re calling her the American Kate Middleton???? I think we’re a little past the little woman desperate for a ring and wedding. A lot of couples are quite happy not being married. Give her a break… though not about those cheeks, that’s obviously not right.

  21. shubba says:

    her face s wrong.

  22. Jen says:

    bros, Google her name and lots of images come up.

  23. expert dabbler says:

    I remember watching a movie starring and written by her, “Ira & Abby.” The whole point of the movie is something like marriage is stupid, so I think she’s on board with him as far as marriage is concerned.

  24. Camille says:

    Her cheeks are scary and that Hamm guy should never, ever smile, he has the douchiest looking smile, not sexy (especially that first photo 😆 ). Neither of these people are attractive to me.
    I don’t care whether they do or don’t get married either.

  25. kathug says:

    I watched Kissing Jessica Stein the other night- it’s a really cute movie…..I don’t know why she hasn’t really been in anything else. The Hamm has a small part in that as well (looks gorgeous, per usual!). I think Jennifer looks better with brown hair though

  26. Happymom says:

    I loved her in “Kissing Jessica Stein”. I don’t get the hate for her-I guess it’s all just jealousy because she’s with him.

  27. Trippin says:

    There’ll be a reason. Maybe he’s not straight.

  28. Jb says:

    These pics are some of the most hideous I’ve seen of her. Usually she looks all-amerian pretty.

    Side note, my best friend saw them at The Plaza a few weeks ago and she said that he was really sweet and attentive to his lady friend- there were no cameras anywhere and my friend doesn’t think he’s a big deal (what?!?) but she did say he looks like an amazing boyfriend. I love him even more.

  29. april says:

    Jon is very handsome on tv but isn’t the most photogenic person. Jennifer is very attractive too but looks like she has a LOT of filler in her cheeks. I think they make a great couple. I heard Jon say he only thinks it’s necessary to marry if you are going to have children. I also heard him say if it was really important to Jennifer that they were married, he would do it right away. They sound very committed to each other. From hearing some things Jennifer has said in interviews, I get the impression she would like to be married to him. She always looks like she adores him.

  30. ariel says:

    Hamm’s dong may not be all that- which is why he’s sticking with the safe piece…..

  31. devilgirl says:

    I will say this again, I have no idea why people love that Jessica Stein movie. Personally, I thought it sucked.

    Anyway, Hamm isn’t engaged.

  32. jai says:

    #10 angela, interesting observations you make, and likely true. unfortunately, some of these gals go overboard and the work is just too evident to ignore- like john’s sweetie. course, the untouchable actresses can get nose jobs and botox and you hear excuses like ‘black don’t crack’ and ‘natural beauty’ or ‘she lost weight’ or whatever else.

  33. Hen says:

    Jon Hamm isn’t attractive at all, looks weird smiling like that.

  34. Dannnii says:

    I’ve heard her say the same thing, she isn’t interested in marriage, so yeah, wouldn’t believe this…..just a made-up story about him.
    She does NOT have cheek implants, lol. Saw her in person and she is adorable, with an equally inviting and adorable personality not to mention that she is super talented.

  35. original kate says:

    “Mad Men’s Jon Hamm isn’t ready to make an honest woman out of Jennifer Westfeldt, his girlfriend of 13 years.”

    an “honest woman?” what a revolting phrase. does that mean a man is always “honest” but an unmarried woman is what…a whore? christ, this isn’t 1955. and marriage does not guarantee security – if it did the divorce rate wouldn’t be almost 50%.

  36. JulieM says:

    Holy(*^%@#$?$, I simply cannot believe what this attractive woman is doing to her face. It looks positively alien. The bottom pictures of her in the gray lace dress are unbelievable. She has The Hamm, why????

    BTW, love the Waity Katie comment, Kaiser.

  37. Hakura says:

    Yeah, those cheeks… *shudder* So not working.

    But yeah, so long as they’re happy together and things are working for them, the fact that they’re not ‘married’ legally doesn’t matter at all. I think a lot of people get too uptight about that… rush into things and the pressure of being ‘officially committed’ to each other just becomes too much.

  38. Bitter fruit says:

    He is SO meh looking, I don’t get it. But Jennifer is gorgeous and a clever chick. Love her work.

  39. Mouse says:

    He looks frazzled. Dude needs a good night’s sleep. And some of those photos look just plain awkward. I’m not really all that attracted to the Hamm. He’s cute, but not as exciting for me as he seems to be for some others. Oh well.

    Bleh, that lady’s face is scary plastic looking. She looks like George Bush in drag.

  40. Mizz Tickles says:

    Wow does Jennifer ever have beautiful eyes! Anti thanks for the link – she totally does not need the cheek fillers or implants.

  41. original kate says:

    hmmm… so i went to google and looked at images of the hamm and jennifer together and i get the feeling that she may be more into him than he is into her. in photo after photo their body language is the same: he’s looking at the camera and she’s looking at him, or her body is turned into him and his is straight out, or she has her arm around his waist AND her hand on his chest, or all 3. interesting, no?

    maybe he will be yours after all, kaiser!

  42. Crash2GO2 says:

    “an “honest woman?” what a revolting phrase. does that mean a man is always “honest” but an unmarried woman is what…a whore?”

    Oh, I so cosign on this! Thank you original kate. Sometimes I reel at this world in which we live…

  43. slymm27 says:

    this man does not do it for me…i do not see the fuss. He probably doesnt think she is the same person he has been with all along, i mean her face just isn’t the same. The man is confused.

  44. Jaye E says:

    Oh lord, why is there always the insinuation that an unmarried actor is gay and his girlfriend is a beard? Surely that’s not true of EVERY actor in Hollywood.

    Aaaannyway…I think Jennifer Westfeldt is as cute as a button without all the surgical enhancements. The cheek filler make her look so artificial.

  45. truthzbetta says:

    Those cheeks make her look Madonna 50 without the thrill of BEING Madonna.

    But she knows how to enjoy and wait for a really good thing. This is a better prize than Nick Douchey and his desperate clinger.

  46. filthycute says:

    it’s funny how this old press pic of JW doesn’t even mention Jon Hamm is standing next to her!—arrivals/p/3442/1/?f=Jennifer+Westfeldt

  47. Tazina says:

    Most people together that long don’t get engaged, and probably not married either.

  48. Henriette says:

    She must have a rockin’ personality and be a demon in the sack ‘cuz that face… *shudder*

  49. Kat says:

    @Kaiser – I’m loving the “american Kate Middleton” reference. damn bitch.

    sidebar: is it bad i look for Hamm dong now every time a full body picture of him is posted?

  50. melinda says:

    For the record, my coment was not a dig at her. I think she was great as Jessica Stein, but she played possibly the most akward character ever!!! The fact that she has been with Jon Hamm all these years…well it makes me think he is even more cool. I just think he is sooooo dreamy in that sexy vintage way. If they are engaged, I’m excited for them! If not, but still happy, good for them too.

  51. they’re all rounded out and distorted – like muppet versions of themselves.

    though i’d happily be hamm’s muppet.

  52. Mizz Tickles says:

    About the dong thing perhaps the Hamm is a grower rather than a shower.

  53. dahlia47 says:

    Something is seriously wrong with her face. I think she feels pain when she smiles.
    I want to go to Hollywood so bad!!! 🙁

  54. Mikunda says:

    Oh my god, her plastic surgeon must be really bad – go ask for a refund, honey
