Jon Hamm


Looks like Jon Hamm might have a Million Dollar Arm off-screen!

The Mad Men star was all smiles while playing baseball with friends, just two weeks after announcing his breakup from longtime girlfriend, Jennifer Westfeldt, on Labor Day. The pair started dating in 1997 and had been together ever since—racking up nearly two decades together. The breakup became one of the last on a very long list of celebrity couples who had called it quits this summer, including Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner as well as Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale.

The actor took the mound Saturday in a St. Louis Cardinals baseball cap and glove to enjoy a picture-perfect outing with his boys. This sighting falls just a few days after Hamm was seen hugging and catching up with two male friends while dining outside at Little Dom's in Los Angeles. Look, celebrities need their friends and a good carb after a breakup just like us! 

While Hamm might be getting along with his new bachelor life, the breakup can't be all that easy. The duo had not just been partners in love, but also in Hollywood. While Hamm acted in a blockbuster television show and series of films, Westfeldt was a triple threat—acting, writing, and producing. The longtime couple had even worked together on Friends with Kids—Westfeldt wrote, directed, produced, and starred next to her then-boyfriend in the film. Hamm had even hinted at some upcoming projects that he was working on with Westfeldt in late June.

Still, the pair faced some personal woes. Hamm checked into rehab and completed a 30-day treatment program for alcohol addiction at Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan, Conn. back in February. Westfeldt remained by his side—Hamm's rep assured the public that he had sought the professional help "with the support of his longtime partner."

Then, the television show that made Hamm a household name completed its final season, leaving him feeling a bit lost.

"Look, the one constant thing I've had in my career is now removed," he told GQ. "And that's an eye-opener: Are people still going to take me seriously? Am I just going to do romantic comedies for the rest of my life? What's next?"
