Hollywood actor John Hamm has been struggling with alcohol addiction for a while and recently went into a rehabilitation facility with the support of his partner Jennifer Westfeldt. He has been struggling with the demons of addiction just as much as the character ‘Don Draper’ in the movie ‘Mad Men,’ who struggled with personal ‘demons’ in the fictionalized role.
According to a source from PEOPLE, the actor has completed his 30 days rehabilitation program just before the premiere of ‘Mad Men’. He had the support of his long time partner to rely on and described to PEOPLE his experiences with struggling with alcohol addiction while hoping the lessons learned will also help others facing a similar harrowing journey.
“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,” his rep said in a statement.
“There were a couple years I was living on $5000, [so] that’s a pretty effective way to avoid that,” he said about barely having enough money to pay rent, let alone indulge in a partying lifestyle.
