Breaking News Emails
Jon Hamm is leaving the issues to Don Draper. The 44-year-old Mad Men star recently underwent treatment for alcoholism, his camp confirmed to NBC News.
"With the support of his longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm recently completed treatment for his struggle with alcohol addiction," a rep for the actor said in a statement. "They have asked for privacy and sensitivity going forward."
Ironically, Hamm truly has been answering questions about the similarities and/or differences between himself and Draper—the booze-fueled, womanizing, riddled-with-demons ad man he plays on TV—for years now. The hotly anticipated second half of Mad Men's seventh and final season premieres on AMC on April 5.
"I don't drink as much as Don Draper," Hamm told the Daily Mail in 2012 while reportedly enjoying a bourbon on the rocks during the interview. "I would be unconscious if I did."
