Jon Hamm Reveals Porn Past

Jon Hamm was thisclose to making our dreams come true. 

In the cover story interview featured in the newest Vanity Fair, the Mad Men star talks about his appearance on a '90s dating show that has recently gone viral. At the time of the dating show, Jon "was actually at that time working as a set dresser for Cinemax soft-core-porn movies. It was soul-crushing." 

Fortunately for Jon, a little more than a decade of time would see his career path take an opposite turn. 

"This is the best job I've ever had and maybe ever will have in my life--it's so fun to play all of this," he tells VF. "It can be relentlessly dark. It can be terribly sexually inappropriate, is a way to say it. But who else gets a chance to do any of that stuff? There's so much there."

He was a dress extra on a hotel porn site.  A dress extra. Or a set dresser which means he made the bed that the talent performed in. He was probably responsible for finding the backdrops and particular patterns of upholstery that are a popular part of the mise-en-scene for soft-core hotel porn that fails to titillate.  It doesn't sound like he suffered too terribly.  He wasn't forced to sell his body to the highest bidder in order to work as a dick dancer in a dimly lit dive for David Geffen.   Decorating a fake fuck palace is facile.  But it's all relative and now that he's transcended the mortal struggles of common man, he's in like Flynn and never has to struggle again.  For regular people, life isn't that charmed.  

Jealous much? You're an asshole

Or just witty  beyond your limited understanding.    

Seriously Instinct? Are you struggling to stay a float so bad, that you allow things of this caliber to be put on your website. 
...Smh....

They've posted worse.  

i don't mind reading this at all. but what i dont get is the part which is "soul crushing". which is...? a set dresser?

That title is deceiving, Instinct and this is pretty much a non-article. You just wasted my time. I wanted an NSFW link and instead I find out that he was a set decorator on a porn shoot!?! Big deal.

RELAX. Yes, the headline was misleading but a lot of headlines are. This isn't the New York Times, I want to come here and read about gay issues, not read reviews of Tolstoy epics.

I agree. Even Stallone did medium hard core porn. Who cares?
