Jon Hamm would like you to please stop looking at his junk, okay?
We need to gin up the Mad Men talk, because the season premiere is so close, so why not talk about Jon Hamm's package? That's what Rolling Stone is doing for its cover story, in which the actor says he wants people to lay off the latest public obsession of wondering if his personal Hamm is more footlong than li'l smokey.
"Most of it's tongue-in-cheek. But it is a little rude. It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have -- a prurience," he tells the magazine. A recent story in the New York daily News says he was required by the show's producers to put on underwear because the 1960s wardrobe was too tight, and the magazine reminds everyone there's a Tumblr called John Hamm's Wang, devoted to alleged photographic evidence of his commitment to the Johnson & Johnson account.
"They're called 'privates' for a reason," he adds. "I'm wearing pants, for f---'s sake. Lay off. I mean, it's not like I'm a f---ing lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world. But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my c---, I feel like that wasn't part of the deal ... But whatever. I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite." Sounds like someone doesn't appreciate being objectified by the consumer masses. Ironic.
