Jon Hamm’s girlfriend talks marriage & Hamm babies

61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

This might just be news that upsets me, but whatever. So, do you remember Jon “The Hamm” Hamm’s girlfriend, Jennifer Westfeldt? She’s an actress who struggles for small one episode parts on television shows. Nothing wrong with that, except she doesn’t really work that much, and thus, has nothing to promote. Nothing to promote except her relationship with The Hamm. Now, Jon and Jennifer have been together a long time – apparently, they just celebrated their 12th anniversary as a couple. When she was at some event this week, In Touch Weekly scored a red carpet interview with her, and asked if she had any plans to marry The Hamm, and if they were planning on babies. SOB.

Despite rumors to the contrary, Mad Men star Jon Hamm is not engaged to his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt, but she says that tying the knot would really just be a formality anyway.

“We have always felt married,” Jennifer told In Touch at the WET’s LOVE 2010 Benefit in NYC on April 19. “We just had our 12th year anniversary last week and we have a house and a dog! At some point we may, but it doesn’t matter to us one way or the other.”

And it also doesn’t mean they won’t be starting a family. “It’s definitely something we’re talking about,” she says.

[From In Touch Weekly]

I know, I know. I should just be happy that The Hamm seems like such a nice, decent guy that he’s with the same girl for more than a decade, and that he’s not out there douching it up with the model of the month. And that does make me happy. I mean, look how dating the wrong girl ruined Alexander Skarsgard for us – The Hamm would never do that, right? Plus, I do think he would make an amazing father, although I’m probably basing that on how wonderfully, beautifully and delicately he acts with the child actors on Mad Men. Now, all that being said, if this is what The Hamm wants, more power to him. But I cannot stand this woman. She’s always grabbing on him, especially when the cameras are around – which, you know, I would too, but I hate her for it. Ugh. I get that he must really love her, but I still don’t think she’s good enough for my Hamm.

    Kiss of death ..

    Countdown to breakup anyone ??

  2. lucy2 says:

    Eh, she doesn’t bother me. I’ve only seen her at award shows and stuff, where everyone brings someone. If she starts showing up everywhere and trying to make a career out of being his girlfriend, then I’ll be bugged.
    I find it more annoying that all In Touch cares about is when people are getting married and having babies, especially couples who have been together a while like these two have.

  3. mmf says:

    She isn’t very attractive.
    Strange smile.
    Kinda scary.

  4. Eleanore says:

    She’s actually working on Broadway!

  5. Wow says:

    She looks like the actress who played Daniel Meade’s dying wife (Molly) on Ugly Betty last season.

    12 years is longer than majority of most marriages these days. I wonder what they’re story is?

    In that one pic, Gerard looks like he wants to punch this Hamm guy out for staying with the same woman for 12 years.

  6. meme says:

    no she is not good enough for THE HAMM. i however AM good enough for THE HAMM. what he sees in her mystifies me.

  7. Lala11_7 says:

    She starred and and co-wrote one of my favorite movies…”Kissing Jessica Stein”…

    Why you drinking so much ice cold “hateraid” regarding her K?

  8. JulieNewmar says:


    LOL .. THE HAMM line forms behind me hun 😉

  9. Feebee says:

    Just because we don’t see her much on TV doesn’t mean she doesn’t work much. She also had the lead in the very funny but short lived (due to subject matter?) Notes from the Underbelly.

    I think he’s great and obviously she must be okay, they’ve been together 12 years! You’d be the first to bitch if he pulled a Josh whatshisname and dumped the long term girlfriend as soon as his profile exploded.

  10. Twocats says:

    I loved her in Kissing Jessica Stein, and she’s much more attractive in person than in photos – just one of those people who look tons better in real life. She has to have a brain and personality and sense of humour to keep John Hamm around. It’s not all about being the most beautiful.

  11. meme says:

    @julieNewmar – oh no it don’t. i’ll get all naomi campbell on you LOL THE HAMM is mine (until jeremy renner does something anything where is he?)

  12. CB Rawks says:

    She was the lead in that sitcom about pregnancy. She has the worst mouth and she talks weirdly because of it.

  13. bite me says:

    they will break up soon…

  14. Karen says:

    It’s hilarious to read Kaiser’s posts when the subject is one of her “boyfriends”. Uh oh, don’t ban me from the site for putting boyfriend in parenthesis!

    Anyway, I also love THE HAMM [shuffling to back of the line behind JulieNewmar and Meme] and I’m pleased that his relationship has lasted so long. No doubt she was the main breadwinner because I have never seen nor heard of Jon Hamm prior to Mad Men. Jon’s success is her payback! I did see “Kissing Jessica Stein” and I absolutely loved it. Didn’t know that Jennifer Westfeldt co-wrote it. That makes me respect her even more…and hate her a *teensy* bit less for being the love of Jon’s life.


  15. yeng says:

    she seems pretty cool to me. i liked her in ira & abby and kissing jessica stein.

  16. Julie says:

    I’m with you, Kaiser. I might like her better if she stopped injecting poison in to her face. She looks like a wax museum escapee. Why do women do that? Too bad too, because she’s a nice looking woman who must have something on the ball to keep Hamm interested for 12 years. I just don’t respect clingy, though, and I never will.

    Where does the sandwich line form? Oh, behind JulieNewmar and meme and who else? Karen. I’m there.

  17. AlaskaJoey says:

    She was on “24” this season, briefly, as a reporter having an affair with the Fakeistan President. I thought she was okay, but her face doesn’t move or emote – at all. Even when she’s being accused of terrorism.

  18. Lizzard says:

    was she the pregnant woman with the brain tumor who died in grey’s anatomy?

  19. meme says:

    @karen that would be behind meme and then JulieNewmar LOL

  20. JulieNewmar says:

    Other way around Meme … me then YOU. 😉

  21. Sumodo1 says:

    She starred and and co-wrote one of my favorite movies, too! “Kissing Jessica Stein” was a ground-breaking indie-flic that gets shown on IFC, if you’re curious. Fine gal!

  22. meme says:

    @JulieNewmar – you’ll have to kill me first and then THE HAMM won’t want to have anything to do with you.

  23. Kaiser says:

    Yes, I’ve seen her in red carpet interviews and she’s Botoxed to the max. And her voice is annoying too. Ugh.

  24. Zelda says:

    I hate her because I suspect she is the one intercepting my letters and crayon drawings of love sent to Jon Hamm. Because if she weren’t he’d be responding.

    But Jennifer, there’s no way of intercepting my Jon-loves-Zelda-naked-puppet-show-of-love, to be performed on your lawn.

    Pepare yourself for singlehood, sistah.

  25. Megan says:

    Loved Kissing Jessica Stein like some of the other people commenting, and I thought she was good on 24 this season.

  26. lola lola says:

    That is one hot Hamm.

  27. meme says:

    @zelda, forget it hun, there’s 3 peeps ahead of you and one will cut a bitch.

  28. CC says:

    she’s probably being clingy because he’s so much more famous than she right now.

    Also…he and Alex Skarsgard should both dump their gfs and hook up with each other…that would be HAWT!!!!

  29. JulieNewmar says:


  30. meme says:

    EXCUSE ME EVERYONE FOR JUST A MOMENT….THE HAMM SAMMICH line forms directly behind moi. That is all.

  31. Karen says:

    I’ll let you ladies fight out it. When the dust settles, I will wipe your blood from my face, smooth down my dress, re-fluff my hair and sashay into Jon’s arms.

    I *live* for Celebitch and the comment section. I love you all…even though you would slice me up in a heartbeat! 🙂

  32. Kaiser says:

    I don’t mean to be rude, but I was the one who started this! Thus, I get first dibs. And second dibs. And third. After I’m done, maybe I’ll pass him down to your line.

    By the way, I was just re-reading The Hamm’s lovely interview in GQ:

  33. meme says:

    in yer dreams kaiser, in yer dreams

  34. PrettyTarheel says:

    @Karen, that would be “quotation marks.” 🙂

    Ya’ll have fun with the Hamm catfight. I’m just saying a prayer for poor Alexander Skarsgard. Kate Bosworth needs to glom back on to Chris Martin. If that actually came out as hardcore fact, vs. rumors that can be ignored, the GOOP papers would be legendary.

  35. Feebee says:

    Where do the ‘clingy’ references come from?

  36. meme says:

    @Feebee – clingy comes from the fact that she’s always clinging to THE HAMM in public in fear of someone, me, coming to take him away.

  37. Mackenzie says:

    I feel bad for her. Twelve years and no ring or kids? Cohabitating and a dog together doesn’t mean anything anymore, put a ring on it! I feel like he’ll end the relationship, hook up with someone much younger, get married and start a family in a year.

  38. Mackenzie says:

    Oh and another thing: if a guy says he doesn’t want to get married, chances are he DOES, but just not to YOU.

  39. Red Folder says:

    Jon Hamm is so handsome. I mean look at him! Ugh! And he’s all manly and grown up and looking suave and debonair and he’s reportedly really nice in person and better looking in person and and and. . .I guess I gotta grab a number and get in line for the Hamm.

  40. Giraffe99 says:

    I read in a quality newspaper stating how he DOESN’T want kids………..

  41. GoodyTwoShoes says:

    Jennifer is extremely smart and talented. She wrote, directed and starred in Kissing Jessica Stein and Hamm had a teensy part in it many years ago. She also did all of the above with another great movie called Ira and Abby. It was brilliant and funny about relationships. Very clever and insightful. Maybe he just got famous and she’s relaxing. She was gorgeous in Jessica Stein. Now she’s messed with her very beautiful face, unfortunately. Watch her in “Jessica.” Loveliness.

  42. canadianchick says:

    I want me some green eggs and Hamm *prepared to fight y’all for him*

  43. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Is something wrong with her mouth? I find her to act a bit desperate about him. It’s one thing to love your sig.other, it is another to be clinging to him on the red carpet all the time.

  44. noonoo says:

    Maybe she is shy at red carpet events? She looks pretty to me in these photos. I’, going to stick my neck out and go Team Jessica because I suspect she’s probably pretty cool.

  45. BitterBetty says:

    She needs to get a job.

  46. Karen says:

    @Pretty Tarhee Thanks! I realized later that I chose the wrong word and was hoping the fight for Hamm’s heart would distract everyone from my error. 😀

  47. Ally says:

    @GoodyTwoSh: Ugh, I thought “Ira and Abby” was dreadful, and might have been subtitled “Dharma and Greg: The Movie” or “Ode to Jennifer Westfeldt”.

    What I don’t like about her is that when she had the power in the relationship, career-wise, she gave him teensy uninteresting parts in her movies, but now that he’s made it, she’s angling for a part on Mad Men and literally clutching him in every photo (though we would all do the latter, I suppose).

  48. pixie says:

    It’s unfair and petty to say she’s not good enough for him. She’s obviously good enough if he’s stuck with her for 12 years!
    I hate it when people try to tear down relationships of hot guys you know nothing about. If they are happy then let them be. If they are not then let them deal. Don’t hate the woman/girlfriend/wife – it’s anti-woman and just wrong.

  49. debbie says:

    I hope the kids will look more like him! I’d have kids with the hamm!

  50. Migue says:

    she’s as uptight as those lips in person! She has an approachable vibe to a BAD way. My coworker is her hairstlylist/colorist next to me..No redeeming qualities at all…A total NOSE DRIP of a person…

  51. Migue says:


  52. LindyK says:

    My theory is they will break up. The roles have changed and she can’t handle it. She’s was the big shot and he was the nobody. Now he’s the mega mega big shot and she’s the nobody. She’s threatened, jealous and clingy. I can tell it bugs him. I wanted to put a YouTube video together of every time he’s won anything and she’s right there tossing her arm, face, leg – whatever into the shot. She grabbed him and kissed him once and he didn’t look that thrilled.

    On Google I found three different videos right in a row in which she said -each time – that she was so PROUD of of him after 10 years with nothing happening in his life. The first time he clearly grimaced. He had the exact same expression the next two times.

    What her statement above tells me is she wants to marry him but he’s the hold-out. Trust me, she ain’t secure in this and would drag him down that isle if she could. I see the end for sure. He’s a nice guy, which is why it’s lasted this long.

    Anyhow, all that aside, studies show that when roles change drastically (as theirs did) the odds are high the relationship will end.

  53. LindyK says:

    Migue, this is hysterical. Thx for posting it:

    “she’s as uptight as those lips in person! …. My coworker is her hairstlylist/colorist next to me..No redeeming qualities at all…A total NOSE DRIP of a person… “

    Re: a previous commenter discussing the boring phrase “I’m proud of him,” which Jon’s mate said on 3 separate media occasions:
    It’s fact: witty, original sayings are oft misquoted, taken out of context, and spun into relationship scandal.
    She’s doing right by Jon by risking appearing boring to keep the focus on Jon and Jon’s work.
