The actor and his long-time girlfriend get candid on the 2011 Emmys red carpet.
Jon Hamm and his girlfriend of fourteen years, Jennifer Westfeldt, arrived together arm-in-arm at the Emmy's last night in chipper moods. The couple has been together for over a decade—incredibly long by Hollywood standards—without every marrying. Jon Hamm Likes The Unmarried Life
So when E! News red carpet correspondent Giuliana Rancic got the couple's attention for a little while, she took advantage by asking just how they make their relationship so sustainable. Hamm immediately responded with, "Breath mints. That's always important." Smiling, he turned to Jennifer and asked, "What else babe?"
His girlfriend was a little more serious with her answer, saying: "We have no secrets... There's no secrets."
"It's all good," Mr. Don Draper added.
Hamm has notoriously said many times that he just doesn't have the "marriage chip," so perhaps the fact that he never kept this aspect of his personality a secret from his longterm lady love has kept their relationship intact. Also important? That Jennifer understood this about her beau, and didn't hold her breath hoping he'd change. (Perhaps if George Clooney and former girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis took a cue from the couple, they'd still be together?)
Jennifer recently told Vulture that while she and Jon have no plans to get married, they are "certainly not opposed" to having children. Jennifer Westfeldt On Being Childless With "Dream" Beau, Jon Hamm
"We've been working on separate coasts a lot. I was doing a play; Jon was doing Mad Men. I think you have to be ready to be in one place if you're going to embark on that," she said. "We'll see what the future brings."
