Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka on Jon Hamm, the Beatles, and Becoming Sally Draper
Do you get recognized by other kids as Sally? I’ve never gotten recognized by a kid once as Sally. Never, ever. By adults? It’s usually not about me. It’s usually about Jon Hamm when they come up to me.
And what’s the biggest question they have about Jon Hamm? They’ll just come up to me and go, “Is he gorgeous?” [Laughs.] Something — something like that.
Okay, so I guess I should ask you that question: Is he gorgeous? Is he gorgeous? [Laughs.] Well, I’m 10, so … I can’t really answer that question … I suppose …

Her locked car was found in a parking lot at the park. Menke’s dog was found alive, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The sources, who spoke on the condition that they not be named because the investigation was ongoing, said Menke’s body was found at the bottom of a ravine near 5600 block of Green Oak Drive.

Omar Sharif was so excited to go to the American premiere of the movie, but he was not invited — he says they wanted to focus the advertising for the movie on O’Toole, but it sounds like some skanky race thing (O’Toole, Guinness, Quinn: all the white guys from the cast). Anyway, he was devastated;…
