The actor is best known for his appearances in the TV series such as Mad Men. He is popular not just for his dashing looks, but also for being a decent guy. But there are some things which were not decent about him and thus he wants you to forget them. Let’s find out what they are.
He worked as a set dresser for porn films
This is something quite embarrassing now when Jon is known as a decent guy. When he entered the acting world, he had to face a pretty tough time. Hamm did everything which could help him to earn money to pay his bills. For that, he worked as a set dresser for soft-core porn films. His duty was to arrange the furniture and other related stuff around a set. Although Hamm never acted in those films, he explained his experience as “depressing”. But he had to do that job because of his poor financial position. This is something that Jon wants to forget.
Sucker Punch (2011)
It is an admitted fact that no actor has a perfect resume. There are several bad or flop movies of some really successful and brilliant actors. It’s a part of their professional career. Hamm was also embarrassed by his role in Sucker Punch 2011. He was unhappy with his role and the movie as well because it pissed everyone off. The movie was about a girl having a terrible life. She was shown as a prostitute and thus the film was accused of being the sexist and exploitative. Such a film was one of the bad experiences of Jon which he really wants to forget.
Like many other famous celebrities, Hamm also spent days in rehab. He was addicted to alcohol and went through 30 days treatment in the rehabilitation center. It was the time when the actor was starring as a drug addict in the TV series Mad Men. So that was really a hard time for him because he had to quit the habit which he was supposed to do as a part of his professional career.
The college hazing incident
Hamm was enrolled in University of Texas after graduating in 1989. He was enrolled as a member of the Sigma Nu fraternity. During November 1990, Jon was arrested for participating in a violent hazing incident. Another student named Mark Senders was beaten badly by Hamm and he was also accused of trying to set her pants on fire. That incident was one of those things that the actor wants everyone to forget.
