It's Jon Hamm vs. Kim Kardashian, Round 3. The Mad Men star has decided to clarify what he really meant by calling both Kardashian and Paris Hilton "a f---ing idiot" in a recent interview with Elle UK.

"What I said was meant to be more on pervasiveness of something in our culture, not personal, but she took offense to it and that is her right," he told E! News on Tuesday.

In fact, Hamm was shocked that his comments made news in the first place. "It's surprising to me that it has become remotely a story. I don't know Ms. Kardashian, I know her public persona."
