In response to a controversy, Hamm remarked:

“Everything about that is sensationalized… we was indicted of these things we don’t… It’s so tough to get into it. we don’t wish to give it any some-more breath… It was a bummer of a thing that happened. we was radically acquitted. we wasn’t convicted of anything. we was held adult in a large situation, a foolish child in a foolish situation, and it’s a fucking bummer. we changed on from it.”

“I got that pursuit since of a crony of mine, this lady who was like a theatre manager in college… we was unresolved out with her and another crony of ours from Mizzou, commiserating during a potluck… None of us had any money. I’d mislaid my catering gig. we was like, ‘I need a job.’ My crony said, ‘You can have my job. I’m doing set dressing.’… we said, ‘I don’t know how to do that.’ She says, ‘It’s not that hard. They’ll sinecure anybody.’ She says, ‘It’s only soul-crushing for me. we can’t do it.’ we said, ‘Soul-crushing: That sounds amazing. I’ll do it.’ And she’s like, ‘It’s for these Skinemax softcore titty movies.’ we asked, ‘What do we do?’ She hands me this bucket with all of her collection in it and says, ‘You only pierce shit around. Do whatever they wish we to do.’ we went in a following Monday and said, ‘I’m a new set dresser.’ Literally, no one blinked.”‘

Even after apropos a large star, Hamm still had his demons. In 2015, he entered rehab for ethanol abuse and finished a attribute with longtime fire Jennifer Westfeldt.
