"It's a confusing juxtaposition," she said. "I think the darkness of Don has weighed heavily on Jon, despite it being the role of a lifetime and the opportunity that gave him the career of his dreams."

The Mad Men star also weighed in on the matter with Australia's TV Week on Wednesday: "Life throws a lot at you sometimes, and you have to deal with it as much as you can. I've been very fortunate that throughout the most recent 24-hour period, I've had a lot of family and friends support me."

But this isn't the first time Hamm has struggled. In 2010, the Hollywood hunk admitted to trying therapy and antidepressants to curb what he called his "chronic depression."
