In case you missed it, Jon Hamm caused quite a stir on the Emmys red carpet when he stepped out sporting a sexy, manly beard. After picking our jaws up off the ground, we started to think about other handsome celebrities who have sported some scruff on the red carpet. And while we've recently had to bid adieu to some of the more well-known beards of Hollywood (we're looking at you, Brad Pitt and Joe Manganiello), we've got a bevy of beauties who currently have more than enough facial hair to spare.

The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards are over, and some of the small screen's most famous faces took over the Nokia Theatre in LA. It's the second time Neil Patrick Harris has hosted the show, and he opened alongside past hosts Jimmy Kimmel and Jane Lynch before Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien also joined the group on stage. That wasn't the only surprise at the start of the show, though — when Merritt Wever won the first award of the night for best supporting actress in a comedy, she gave a quick thanks before saying she "had to go." She was presented the award by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who had the crowd cracking up when they told Neil to take his pants off before crawling up the stairs.
This year's Emmy presenters included actors and actresses like Matt Damon, Jon Hamm and Sofia Vergara. Will Ferrell took the stage as a "last minute" presenter alongside his kids, and stylish stars like Kerry Washington and Claire Danes also took the mic. Throughout the show, there were also several thoughtful speeches commemorating actors and actors who passed this year, including a Jane Lynch's sweet tribute to Cory Monteith and Edie Falco's moving words about James Gandolfini. See all the 2013 Emmy winners, and take a look at all the pictures from this year's show!
Leading figures in the sporting world got all dressed up for the 2013 ESPY Awards at the Nokia Theatre in LA today, and were joined by some A-list stars. Jon Hamm is hosting the event for the first time and has promised to keep the focus on the achievements, saying, “When you look back at other hosts . . . the best ones always keep it moving, keep it light, give you a few laughs, and don’t forget why they’re there. It’s not going to be the Jon Hamm show, nor should it be.”
Couples abounded on the red carpet, including engaged lovebirds Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde, who are making headlines after a recent interview had Jason crediting sex with his fiancée for his weight loss. New X Factor judge Stefan “Redfoo” Gordy supported his tennis player girlfriend Victoria Azarenka, while Michael Phelps made his public debut with his new girlfriend Win McMurry, who reports for the Golf Channel in the US.
For an extra dose of glamour, Selena Gomez, Lake Bell, Paula Patton and models Chrissy Teigen and Marisa Miller attended the celebratory event. Maria Sharapova and Australian surfer Stephanie Gilmore, who’s been at the centre of a controversial Roxy ad campaign, also broke out their red carpet best for the EPSY Awards.
Jon Hamm landed his first solo US Rolling Stone cover for the publication's April issue. He's gearing up for the April 8 return of Mad Men and talked about playing the complicated character Don Draper for six seasons. Jon also touched on the embarrassing talk about his private parts, which have received attention online, including a special Tumblr account, for years. Here's more from Jon Hamm in Rolling Stone:
- On jokes about his anatomy: "Most of it's tongue-in-cheek, but it is a little rude. They're called 'privates' for a reason. I'm wearing pants, for f*ck's sake. Lay off. I mean, it's not like I'm a f*cking lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world. But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my c*ck, I feel like that wasn't part of the deal . . . But whatever. I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite."
- On his similarities with Don Draper: "Don is a very complicated character, and I'm a fairly complicated individual, but that's pretty much where the similarity ends. I try to imbue Don with a humanity that is raw and misunderstood and meaningful . . . It's not that I just come in and throw a suit on and act super cool."
Last night, the stars of Mad Men previewed the first episode of the upcoming sixth season for a VIP crowd at the Directors Guild of America's LA theatre. Jon Hamm, January Jones, Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth Moss were among the cast members who turned up for the premiere, but there was more than just a new season to celebrate. Their co-stars Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel, who had an arc on the show last season, just announced they are engaged! When we caught up with Jon last evening, he told us most of the cast has known about the happy news for a while and are all glad to be able to celebrate it publicly now. Jon attended the premiere with his long-time love, Jennifer Westfeldt, and Christina was joined by her husband, Geoffrey Arend, but Vincent appeared to arrive solo to the screening.
The Mad Men cast and the show's creator, Matthew Weiner, are notoriously tight-lipped about the plot. Still, they assured us that this season of Mad Men, which premieres on April 8, is worth tuning in for. Matthew spoke to us about Jon reprising his role as a director in 2013, Jon told us how portraying Don Draper has changed his life, and Elisabeth Moss talked about what it was like to transition from her 20s to her 30s on screen.
