Jon Hamm gets hammered at the Globe after-parties

globes hbo after party 120109

This news makes my life. Apparently Mad Men’s lead actor (and total mind-blowing hottie) Jon Hamm got thoroughly drunk last night at the post-awards show parties. Not only did he get hammered, he talked to reporters! This is a true sign that Jon Hamm keeps it real – if he was some massive celebrity, he would have flunkies keeping his drunk ass away from the journalists. In his defense, Mad Men won Best Drama Series last night, which it totally deserved.

Two years ago, several Golden Globe Awards after-parties raged at once at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, with movie and television stars co-mingling, braving the chilly night air and sometimes waiting in line for hours to get into lavishly decorated bashes.

On Sunday night, a year after the writers’ strike shut down the awards show ceremony and its onsite parties, the weather was much warmer and alcohol flowed again throughout a spate of shindigs at the hotel, though fewer than before and not quite so extravagant.

Still, the current economic recession didn’t stop post-Globe revelers from indulging in booze, food and the sheer will to make merry.

Clutching a tumbler of whiskey, his hair askew, “Mad Men” actor and nominee Jon Hamm grinned next to his wife, surrounded by cast members at an intimate, exclusive bash for the AMC ’60s-themed show, which won a best TV drama trophy for the second year in a row. Retro tunes blasted overhead as guests ate mashed potatoes served in martini glasses. Decorations were minimal.

“To win again is great. We’re going to light the lamp. We’re going to party until late,” said Hamm, a little unsteady on his feet.

Hamm pointed out that even with layoffs within the entertainment industry and beyond, a party could provide an economic boost.

“It employs a lot of people. I was a caterer and waiter for a long time of my life,” he said. Hamm’s co-star Michael Gladis, sipping on a scotch and soda, said he had been drinking for hours.

“We’re good at it. It’s all about pacing,” he joked, noting the show’s characters’ penchant for at-work boozing.

Haha, it’s like Hamm is doing “research” for his constantly drunk character. Did you notice the passive-aggressive tone of co-star Michael Gladis? Like he was thinking, “Jesus, Hamm’s drunk again!” I wish Jon would do “research” on the womanizing part of his character. He could start with me!

    I don’t think that’s his wife… I think it’s his “long time girlfriend” who he will soon split up with to run away with me. Shut up, REALITY, who asked you?!?! I love Jon Hamm.

  2. Autumm Leaves says:

    that’s not his wife but LT g/f. Hamm’s a great actor with his drunk, fine behind.

    Ok…So, I got hammered at my neighbors pool party Saturday night. OH! And my husband was there too.
    Do I make the Celebitchy news? 😉

    He’s got kind of a Daniel Day Lewis look about him. Not that I’m at all complaining…

    Kaiser, if you don’t mind sharing, I’d help you get rid of what’s her name.

    @Baho – yep, but cuter!

    “Caterer-waiter”… ah, now we can all fantasize about Jon Hamm serving us our martini back in the day.

    He should have played Superman in Superman Returns and they should have cast an age-appropriate Lois. I mean, it was supposed to be an *older* Superman returning! Hamm would be perfect, if you ask me.

    I love this man and the show. Glad they won again, it’s well deserved.

  9. Photos! We want photos of a drunk, messed up, and totally HOT Jon Hamm. He was the best host of SNL this season – totally hilarious and not full of himself. Congrats on the Mad Men cast for their GG win. Totally deserved.

    He’s dead gorgeous, but I read a revealed blind that he’s getting WAY too full of himself on set. Which is a shame.
