Jon Hamm on Kim K. comment: It wasn't personal

Kim Kardashian didn't take kindly to Jon Hamm's assertion that she's among those who are celebrated for being stupid, but the "Mad Men" actor says his remarks in a recent interview weren't a personal attack.

In the April issue of Elle UK, Hamm said that when it comes to celebrities like Kardashian and Paris Hilton, "stupidity is certainly being celebrated," as "being a f*****g idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture."

When Kardashian got wind of what he said, she tweeted that she found it to be "careless" commentary.

Schmidt is a special breed of man.

For example, the things that set Schmidt off: When Non-Tahitian vanilla is in the same vicinity as his Tahitian vanilla; the ocean (aka a “giant fish toilet”); when Nick calls a panini a hot sandwich; going into the ocean without his aqua socks; and all things junky and disorganized.

So he naturally freaked out when Jess brought home some furniture she got off the street. (It made him "emotionally nauseous.")

Bear Grylls of 'Man vs. Wild,' Discovery part ways

Don’t cry for recently axed “Man Vs. Wild” host Bear Grylls.

True to his insect-eating, urine-drinking, rapids-braving TV persona, the 37-year-old has said he'll survive to tape another day.

His comments come after the Discovery Channel announced Tuesday that it was dropping the charismatic British adventurer and his survival show after six years.

The culprit? Failed contract negotiations.

Judd Apatow ventures into female comedy again

Judd Apatow knows that women have always been funny.

But the filmmaker says that after producing “Bridesmaids," he still hears lots of chatter about this being the age of the funny ladies. The thought seems to amuse him.

“It is kind of silly, I thought this was the country of Lucille Ball,” Apatow told CNN at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. “To me, I’ve never understood why there is any question about are women as funny as men.”
