Two of my favourite actors Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Rebecca Hall (Frost/Nixon) grace the cover of August's W Magazine. The pair are promoting Ben Affleck-directed and headlined The Town, which is already getting a bit of Oscar buzz. In the interview with Kevin West, they talk about what it was like to work with Affleck and Hamm stated that he is "Mr. Boston" and could not walk a block without getting a 'Hi, Ben!' during filming.
The film centers around a Bank Manager (Hall) who witnesses the brutal beating of one of her colleagues during a Robbery. She then falls for the same man who was an accomplice to the crime (Affleck), while Hamm's character is in hot pursuit of the suspect.
When asked whether or not she had any part in the dissolving of Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes' marriage, she replied flat out, "No". Hamm pitched in a bit of humour, stating "The reality is that I broke them up", then joking about a beautifully-directed Sex Tape of theirs which Mendes directed.
