Kathleen just mentioned in her post previous to this the great Twilight truther conspiracy theory – that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are together IRL with babies. Fifty Shades Of Grey was based on Twilight. And did you know that there are also Fifty Shades truthers? It’s a smaller army but their passion is the same: they believe that Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan too are together IRL. I don’t think they have babies though. Do they?

For the rest of us, however, Jamie Dornan is married to Amelia Warner and they have two actual children and Dakota Johnson…well… Dakota Johnson might be dating Jon Hamm?

According to Page Six Dakota and Jon were seen together last Thursday together in New York:

We’re told the genetically blessed actors were spotted drinking wine at Kingside in the Viceroy Central Park hotel on Thursday night after Hamm, 46, hosted the Brooklyn Black Tie Ball.

“They seemed to really be enjoying each other’s company,” a spy told us of their “low-key” night, adding that they were hanging out for about two hours.

It’s not the first time Hamm, 46, and Johnson, 28, have been spotted together. In April the pair were photographed together at Elton John’s 70th birthday party.

I don’t know that there’s anything here to slamdunks the fact that they’re dating. Right now all we have is a sighting of them for two hours somewhere. And smiling and maybe laughing. If there had been any more than that, we for sure would have gotten a “canoodling” detail in report. Given that there is no mention of “canoodling” (in parentheses because I hate that word), I’m assuming that the source did not see any of it.


It’s an intriguing possibility. It’s been a while since we’ve had a new intriguing celebrity match. Are they though? A good match? Some of Dakota Johnson’s friends include Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and Cara Delevingne. Can you imagine seeing Jon Hamm at #Taymerica? Is #Taymerica even a thing anymore? As for Jon Hamm’s friends, well he’s an SNL-almost regular. And I’m wondering if their connection isn’t actually SNL. Dakota’s hosted before. I feel like she’s in the SNL orbit too. That crept up on us, didn’t it? SNL as a Hollywood romantic breeding ground – ScarJost, Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus, possibly-maybe-perhaps Emma Stone and Dave McCary, and possibly-maybe-perhaps Dakota Johnson and Jon Hamm…

Now I have a very, very long list of people I want to host Saturday Night Live. Angelina Jolie has never hosted SNL. She probably never will. Probably. It’s not impossible though, is it?
