Kathy Griffin isn't afraid to expose anyone — even the most beloved of A-list actors!
In her new tell-all book Kathy Griffin's Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index, the fearless comedienne, 56, recalls her painful experience at an elite dinner party with a "very drunk" Jon Hamm.
The newly single star, 45, had just finished a day of filming Mad Men (which ran from 2007 to 2015), when he arrived at talent agent Sue Menger's home for a small soiree of celebs including Jack Nicholson and of course, Griffin.
"He proceeded to get very drunk during the coffee table portion, and then when it came for dinner, Sue had sat him next to me," she says.
During a conversation with Nicholson, Hamm interrupted with "boozy yammering."
"First it was, 'You know your Emmy isn't a real Emmy,'" Griffin claims. "I let that one go, but then he whispered, 'You're so o-o-o-old.'"
Never one to take an insult, she says she snapped back: "You can't keep up. You're outclassed. Now zip it; Jack's talking!"
Aside from the "cruel" comments, she was more disturbed by his "horrible timing" in causing a scene during her conversation with Nicholson.
And the man she calls a "nemesis" didn't earn his title from one incident. Griffin claims she has known him since before his Mad Men days.
"He's one of these hot guys who's mildly funny but actually thinks he's comedian level funny," she writes. "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."
Of course, Hamm completed rehab after completing his famous drama in March 2015. But Griffin doesn't think he can blame it all on the alcohol.
"Hopefully done with the drunk, but probably still Don Draper-y," she sighs.
