"Mad Men" star Jon Hamm has blasted "stupid" celebrities of today such as Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton in an interview this week.
The actor discussed celebrities and the culture in Hollywood while speaking with Elle U.K.
"We're at a place where the idea of being 'elite' is somehow considered a negative," said Hamm. "Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated."
Hamm blasted the reality television stars, and added how he feels that "being [an] f------ idiot" is something that earns people acclaim in today's society, whereas intelligence does not.
"Incuriousness has become cool … It's celebrated. It doesn't make sense to me," said Hamm.

"I think it will be a surprise and I think people will be pleasantly surprised and excited to see it," said the actor, according to CBSNews.com.
