Anna Osceola changed Jon Hamm’s perceptive on marriage.
Despite the “Mad Men” actor previously claiming that marriage didn’t “mean anything,” he sang a completely different tune during an appearance on the “Table for Two” podcast.
“Ideally, it gives you and your partner a sense of stability and comfort and an identifying capacity that is better, deeper, richer than ‘it’s my girlfriend’ or ‘my boyfriend’ or what have you,” he told host Bruce Bozzi days before his nuptials.
He went on to refer to the milestone as “a signpost and a signifier of the next chapter and phase [of life].”
“It’s exciting because it’s all potential, it’s all possibility and it’s all positive,” the “Top Gun: Maverick” star added.
Hamm, 52, wed Osceola, 35 — whom he met on the set of “Mad Men” — over the weekend at Anderson Canyon in Big Sur, Calif., where they filmed the show’s series finale in 2015.
While the actor acknowledged that taking the leap of faith into marriage can come with fear, he’s looking at the next chapter as “something wonderful.”
“It’s the reason why I really wanted to do it and really leaned into it and [marriage] is the thing that leads to the next thing of life and that’s what I hope — and it’s the journey and it’s exciting,” he said.
Before the pair said “I do”, Hamm admitted there were months of “mind-numbing” wedding planning.
Despite the hectic process, he said “a sort of calm settled over [him]” in the days leading up to the star-studded ceremony.
“At the end of the day, the important thing is … I’m gonna look out and I’m gonna see this whole group of people … that are all there because they’re supporting me and Anna,” he said on the podcast.
“I think the last time that happened to me was high school graduation,” Hamm joked.

Just a few years before meeting his now-wife, the “Confess, Fletch” star told Playboy he never had a “particularly defined example of marriage” in his life since his parents divorced when he was 2.
“It’s just my experience. I don’t have that paragon of married life to look at and think, ‘Oh yeah, that’s it! That’s what I want!” he told the outlet in 2012.
Prior to his relationship with Osceola, the “Baby Driver” actor dated Jennifer Westfeldt for 18 years.
Although the private couple has kept most of their relationship out of the public eye, Hamm told Howard Stern last year that Osceola had “opened up the possibility of things like being married, having kids.”
