Mad Men” star Jon Hamm who plays the notorious womanizer Don Draper has just revealed some intriguing information about his personal life just as his “Mad Men” role has changed direction. Considered one of the sexiest men in Hollywood today, Hamm opened up about his career in showbiz and how it wasn’t always as glamorous, according to MSN Wonderwall on May 6.

It seems as if Hamm was about 25 when he was trying to break into showbiz anyway he could. That is when he took a job in the “soft-porn" movie industry. Wow, Hamm doing soft porn? No, he was behind the scenes as a “set-dresser,” but he called this a “soul-crushing experience.” According to ABC News today, he actually hated the job in the soft-porn industry!

Recently a 20-year-old video surfaced of Hamm being rejected by the girl on a “Dating Game” knock-off, called “The Big Date.” This is way before he grew his suave-like wings, because he sounded like a bit of a geek when answering the questions. He was one of three men vying for a date. You can see why the girl didn't pick Hamm after watching the video above.

If only the girl had a crystal ball and could look into the future. She would have realized she just pass-up one of the sexiest men alive a few decades into the future! It is Hamm’s interview in Vanity Fair that is due out in June that is supplying all this little-known information on the “Mad Men” star.

Unlike his alter-ego Don Draper, Jon Hamm is a one-woman-man. The 43-year-old has been with his girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt for 16-years and the key to keeping their love going in this business is as simple as a promise they made and kept a while back.

Hamm and Westfeldt never go more than two weeks without seeing each other. He calls his home bi-coastal as he shuffles back and forth from L.A. to New York so the two can spend time with each other.

Once that two-week mark is drawing near, either Hamm or his girlfriend have to get on a flight and fly out to spend time together. Hamm says “physical presence is a big part of it.” He also adds, “home is where the dog is.”
