Jon Hamm helps unveil a "Mad Men" bench in front of the Time & Life Building, March 23, 2015 in New York.

A spokeswoman for popular U.S. television show Mad Men star Jon Hamm says the actor recently completed treatment for alcohol addiction.

Hamm had the support of his longtime partner, actress-filmmaker Jennifer Westfeldt, in his struggle, publicist Annett Wolf said in a statement Tuesday.

The couple asks for privacy and sensitivity, the statement said. No further details were provided.

The disclosure, first reported by the TMZ website, came as the final season of the 1960s-set advertising agency drama begins April 5 on AMC.

Hamm, 43, plays Don Draper, a troubled advertising executive with a dark past. The role brought him stardom and repeated Emmy Award nominations.
