Jon Hamm Completes Stint in Rehab for Alcohol Abuseby Ali Szubiak | PopCrush
Actor Jon Hamm has reportedly completed a 30-day stint in rehab for alcohol abuse.
According to Just Jared, the Mad Men actor checked into a rehab facility toward the end of February. His rep reportedly released a statement saying, “With the support of his longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm recently completed treatment for his struggle with alcohol addiction. They have asked for privacy and sensitivity going forward.”
TMZ reports that Hamm checked himself into the New Canaan, Conn., facility Silver Hill Hospital.
Hamm, who plays Don Draper on Mad Men, has been promoting the final season of the hit AMC show. The first episode of the last season is set to premiere on April 5. He and the rest of the main cast were at the Museum of Modern Art celebrating the final season where Hamm said (quote via the New York Times), “For better or for worse, it’s not only the longest job I’ve ever had but certainly the career-defining one, to say the least. Yeah, I will definitely miss it.”
During an interview with the Today Show, the show’s creator Matthew Weiner revealed that he unveiled Don Draper’s fate to Hamm four years ago. Hamm jokingly responded by saying, “I just thought that turning Don into a zombie was a weird choice. I mean, I thought, like yeah, it is a thing, he is ahead of the curve…Are we broadcasting now?”
The final season of Mad Men will begin airing on April 5 at 10PM ET on AMC.
