    Jon Hamm Did Porn? Kinda, Yeah!

    Can you imagine Don Draper dropping trou?

    Hell, we all have! But in a recent interview with The Guardian Jon Hamm, talks about his stint in the porn industry. And, yes, you're reading correctly: porn!

    If only he was in front of the camera, though. See, Hamm worked as the set dresser on a soft porn flick in the late '90s, shortly before he hit it big, as it were.

    "You gotta move cameras around, and ashtrays; and continuity is apparently an issue," explained The Town star of his duties, which the out-of-work actor took on, he says, to make ends meet.

    Apparently, it was current girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt who got him out of the skin biz and "totally" saved him. She called and offered him a part in a play, Lipschtick, she was doing in NYC.

    Jon tells The Guardian:

    "I came in after another 12-hour day [on the porn film] to this message on my answer phone, and I was so exhausted and depressed and bone tired that I called her back immediately: 'Yes! I don't care what it is!' I borrowed money for a ticket and lived in New York for six weeks on about $300, stayed on a friend's couch, roller-bladed everywhere."

    Naturally, their six weeks together started a relationship that's been going on for more than a decade.

    Thanks a lot Jennifer! Not only did you snatch up one of Hollywood's hunkiest (and faithful) men, but we can only assume you also cock-blocked, pun intended, the possibility of Jon being in front of the wrong kind of camera.

    Actually, Hamm is such a gentleman we doubt it would have happened, but the thought isn't bad is it?

    So, how do you prefer the Mad Men hunk—dapper or naked?

    Check out the entire article. We obviously picked out the most scandalous part, but it's a fascinating read, with deets about depression and the inner workings of Hamm and his character.

    And we're warning ya: If you're not already smitten by Hamm, you'll be totally gaga after this read. The man puts it all out there, dubious job history and all. He's completely cool with being honest, forthright, and, most importantly, vulnerable.

    Sorry, that's just so totally hot.
