'Mad Men' couple Jon Hamm and January Jones secretly dating in real life
Jon Hamm has been meeting up with the 40-year-old actress privately in the suburbs of Los Feliz in Los Angeles
While their on-screen characters are known to be miserable in each other's destructive companies, 'Mad Men' couple Jon Hamm and January Jones might actually be secretly seeing each other and their off-screen romance has sparked quite a few speculations.
Jon Hamm and January Jones are indeed spending a lot of time secretly hooking up. RadarOnline quoted a source, who said, "They’ve always had a spark and, when the opportunity presented itself, they took advantage of it." The source further informed that the 47-year-old actor has been meeting up with the 40-year-old actress privately in the suburbs of Los Feliz in Los Angeles.
According to the source, while the two never really spent much time together while filming for the show, it was only after Hamm's break up with his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt that the two began to get together. "There was never any doubt that they would stay in touch after the show ended. When Jon's relationship with Jennifer came to an end, the door opened for him and January to become more than friends."
AMC's 'Mad Men' began in 2007 and has been focusing on the life of the advertising director at the Sterling Cooper ad agency, Donald Draper, in the 1960s New York. Hamm plays the troublesome character of Donald Draper whereas Jones portrayed his wife Betty. The show revolves around the relationship between the two individuals, as they face turmoil caused by disbalance in their professional life and their wavering personal life which for the most part hangs by a thin thread. While the characters divorced in Season 3, the two actors off-screen have only stepped into the blossoming phase of their relationship.
The two were spotted together at the Golden Globes in 2016, after which the two headed back to Jones's place. The source said, "A lot of people would love to see them go public as a real couple, but they’re happy with the way things are... They want to keep things quiet and casual. But their chemistry is undeniable!”
According to InStyle, the actor has been on the lookout for a new relationship as he found it hard to be single after being with someone for a very long time. "It’s hard. It’s hard to be single after being together for a long time. It’s really hard. It sucks.”
