Jon Hamm Talks Porn Past: It Was \'Horribly Depressing\'
You just read Jon Hamm and porn in the same headline, so you don’t want me wasting your time:

“I did set dressing on some soft-core porn films,” Hamm told Playboy’s April issue. “That was hands down the worst. I was working on the crew from seven to seven, and it was horribly depressing.”

Jon said that working within the porn industry was the worst day job he’s ever had and added: “it’s definitely on the lower end of the spectrum of the wonder of moviemaking. It wasn’t even that much money, but it was money.”

Hamm shot to fame starring as Don Draper in Mad Men, but the actor says getting to the top was a struggle.

“I called Paul Rudd, who I knew from college, and said, ‘I’m going to ask this only once, because I don’t want to be that guy. I need a favor. Can you give me one person to call who will take my call?”

Jon says he eventually got an agent, but he didn’t work for three years, and his agent fired him.

Jon stars in Friends With Kids alongside Kristin Wiig, and he also starred with her in Bridesmaids. Regarding his sex scene with Wiig Bridesmaids, Hamm said:

“Wiig is a twig; she’s a skinny little thing. I told her, ‘Just punch me in the side if I’m hurting you.’ It’s weird and uncomfortable at first, but then all the awkwardness melts away and you think, all right, we’re doing this, so let’s have fun with it.”
