Jon Hamm Worked on Soft-Core Porn Movies: 'It Was Soul Crushing'

Jon Hamm shows off his rugged good looks in a suit on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s June 2014 issue.

Here’s what the 43-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On a low point in his career in the 90s: “I was actually at that time working as a set dresser for Cinemax soft-core-porn movies. It was soul-crushing.”

On living cross-country from girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt: “One or the other of us has to make the flight. It helps. Physical presence is a big part of it. Home is where the dog is.”

On Mad Men: “This is the best job I’ve ever had and maybe ever will have in my life—it’s so fun to play all of this. It can be relentlessly dark. It can be terribly sexually inappropriate, is a way to say it. But who else gets a chance to do any of that stuff? There’s so much there.”

On his childhood: “Eleven-thirty would roll around—10:30 in the Midwest—and the big huge 22-inch TV would be tuned to Saturday Night Live. I would sit two feet in front of the TV and stare and watch the whole thing.”
