When Jon Hamm presented at the Emmys with Alec Baldwin, did you notice that little scratch in his throat? I did. I thought that Jon – being a sometime smoker, from what I know of him – had probably been out partying, drinking and smoking the night before and his voice was just extra scratchy. But as it turns out, it might be something more serious. According to Life & Style, January Jones was telling people that Jon is flying to Boston to undergo throat surgery after he recently started coughing up blood. YIKES.
Don Draper is going under the knife! Life & Style can reveal that Mad Men star Jon Hamm is set to have throat surgery in Boston next week.
“January Jones was talking about it at the Fox Emmys afterparty last night,” an insider tells Life & Style.
According to reports, the hunky 42-year-old star, who rocked a mountain man beard at the Emmys, has two large polyps on his vocal cords. When he recently — and allegedly — coughed up blood, that’s when he decided to finally get them checked out.
People who use their voices a great deal — like singers and actors — are prone to developing polyps.
Aside from the surgery talk, the insider says January was also overheard chatting with Jon about a fantasy football league.
“They were less interested in the ball and more excited about their fantasy league,” the source shares. “January was asking, ‘Who’s going on Monday night?’”
Despite being nominated for 12 awards, Mad Men went home empty-handed last night.
Maybe the real story is that January Jones takes part in a fantasy football league? Because that’s very interesting. As for Jon and his polyps, that’s so scary. Adele had a similar problem, and I think she had her throat surgery in Boston too. Is Boston the medical destination for actors and singers with throat problems? Perhaps. Now, all that being said, I doubt Jon’s drinking and smoking helps matters.
