Jon Hamm's quick to tell you that he only set-dressed softcore, but that doesn't mean that he's proud of his time spent moving couches to obscure crotches on porn sets.
As a struggling actor, Hamm lived in his buddy's basement, taught English, and made porno sets prettier. Just like Don Draper would do, Hamm boiled the situation down to its most basic truth, when he told Anderson Cooper, "I had to get by—I wanted to be an actor." He went on to remark, "There was nothing tasteful about it. It was depressing."
And then he poured two drinks and drained both.
