Jon Hamm Freezes Up In Rapper Jay-Z's Presence

Jon Hamm, the star of AMC’s Mad Men is not too famous to get a little star struck from time to time. In an interview with AV Club the star spoke about his first encounter with Hip-Hop Mogul Jay Z.

“I was in New York City and going down an elevator when the elevator stopped, and Jay-Z got on,” Hamm said. “This was a long time ago. It was pre-Beyoncé. And definitely pre-Mad Men. I think I was probably super nervous and nerdy and said something like, ‘I’m a big fan of your work.’ And he was very polite,” Hamm continued. “And then we rode the elevator down the rest of the way, and then he got out and walked to the curb and got in a powder blue Bentley. And I walked to the corner and got on the subway.”

Man Men is currently in its fifth season with no signs of slowing down. It’s a drama about one of New York’s most prestigious ad agencies at the beginning of the 1960s, focusing on one of the firm’s most mysterious but extremely talented ad executives, Donald Draper (Hamm).

Maybe the next time these two meet, Hamm will be getting in a powder blue Bentley of his own.
