- What Makes 1960s Villain Don Draper A Proper 21st Century Hero
- Jon Hamm: 'Everybody Who Meets Me Is Disappointed'
Jon reportedly checked into Connecticut’s Silver Hill Hospital at the end of February, just days before the premiere of the final season of ‘Mad Men’, where he completed their 30-day alcohol abuse program.
A spokesperson for the actor told news site TMZ: “With the support of his longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm recently completed treatment for his struggle with alcohol addiction.
His stint in rehab comes as his ‘Mad Men’ character Don Draper has been going through similar personal struggles in the show, after the character was asked to take a leave of absence from his job to deal with his drinking.
British TV fans who don’t watch ‘Mad Men’ might recognise Jon from the last episode of ‘Black Mirror’, where he played a pivotal role in the dystopian series’ Christmas special back in December.
Meanwhile, the second half of the seventh and final series of ‘Mad Men’ is returning to screens in the US on 5 April, before airing in the UK on Sky Atlantic days later on 9 April.
The final episode of the show has already been filmed, with Jon revealing that he broke down in tears as the director yelled “cut!” for the final time, telling Emmy magazine: “Everyone did.”
