The Office star ELLIE KEMPER loves tuning into MAD MEN - because the TV show's leading man Jon Hamm was her high school drama teacher.
After college, Hamm returned to teach at his alma mater, John Burroughs High School in St. Louis, Missouri, and the wannabe actress was one of his pupils.
Kemper reveals all her classmates had crushes on the future Hollywood actor, telling E! Online, "He was a heart-throb! All the girls would sign up for his class... for a good reason! In addition to being really handsome, he was an excellent teacher. He taught me drama work, mostly improvisation, which I did a lot of in college and in New York. It's my favourite thing to do."
And Hamm is proud his student has also found Hollywood success, adding, "It's really cool to see them blossom and find their own way in."
