Jon Hamm opened up about how he took control of his whirlwind alcohol abuse in 2015.
Hamm, now 46, entered rehab two years ago to “re-calibrate. Re-evaluate. Just sort of re-establish where” he was, the actor told The New York Times.
“You’re coming off of this Tilt-a-Whirl that’s going 9,000 miles an hour, and so many things have come unfixed,” Hamm said of his addiction. “If you think about navigation, you’re trying to stare at a fixed point. When you navigate to something that’s whirling, it’s difficult. It’s all a learning experience.”
“It’s all about growing older and getting better at living,” Hamm added. “And I hope I did.”
The “Mad Man” star spent 30 days in rehab in 2015. Hamm’s rep previously told US Weekly “with the support of his longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm recently completed treatment for his struggle with alcohol addiction.”
Hamm has had a wildly busy 2017, appearing in a remarkable five films: “Marjorie Prime”, “Baby Driver”, “Aardvark”, “High Wire Act” and “Nostalgia”.
