8 Sep 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt split after 18 years.

“With great sadness, we have decided to separate, after 18 years of love and shared history,” the couple announced in a joint statement to People magazine.

The couple, who never married, said they would “continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible.” The statement first appeared on the web site of People magazine. Westfeldt wrote and produced the independent film, Kissing Jessica Stein, and wrote, produced and directed Friends with Kids, in which Hamm also starred. Earlier this year, the Mad Men actor completed treatment for alcohol addiction and praised Westfeldt, an actress and filmmaker, for her support, Wolf said at the time. A jobbing actor before being cast as the talented but troubled advertising executive Don Draper on Matthew Weiner’s period drama Mad Men, Hamm went on to win eight Emmy nominations and worldwide recognition for his dark portrayal.

Hamm and Westfeldt established a production company, Points West Pictures, in 2009 and stayed together as Hamm’s fame skyrocketed during his eight years on Mad Men despite recent rumours about a split. In March 2015, just before Mad Men’s eighth season finale, it emerged that Hamm had completed a course of rehab for alcoholism with the full support of Westfeldt.
