Kim Kardashian attack 'not personal'

Kim Kardashian Jon Hamm

Los Angeles - Jon Hamm has said his statement about celebrity stupidity was "nothing personal" against Kim Kardashian.

The Mad Men actor blasted the culture of celebrity in Hollywood which celebrated idiocy and name-checked Kim and Paris Hilton as he did so - causing Kim to retort he should not be so careless with his words - but he has now claimed he did not mean it as a direct attack on the 31 year old.

He told E! News: "It's surprising to me that it has become remotely a story.

"I don't know Ms Kardashian, I know her public persona. What I said was meant to be more on pervasiveness of something in our culture, not personal, but she took offence to it and that is her right."

'I respect Jon'

After the outburst, Kim - who runs her own business in addition to modelling and appearing in various TV shows - claimed she had respect for the actor but told him he should think more about what he says.

She said: "I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life.

"Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs and creates 'stupid', is in my opinion careless."
