Jon Hamm

Discusses his childhood with Mr. Porter

October 13, 2016 - Mr. Porter

via UpscaleHype

There’s a careworn legend that Mad Men creator Mr Weiner remarked after his first audition, “Now there’s a man who wasn’t raised by his parents,” which is partly true. Mr Hamm’s parents divorced when he was two and his mother, Deborah, died of stomach cancer when he was 10. He moved in with his father, Daniel, a flamboyant character who had sold a trucking business and pursued various jobs, but mostly he was brought up by friends’ mothers. “I was always fascinated by my dad because he could talk to anyone. He was a great listener and he knew a little bit about a lot of things. I aspired to be like that.”
