Everyone, Jon Hamm would like you to please stop talking about his penis. However, if you do continue to do so, he’s hopeful that you still call it impressive.
The Mad Men hunk, whose nether regions have been the subject of close-up shots, reckon people should “lay off” him and that it doesn’t matter whether he chooses to wear underwear or not.
“Yeah, I’m familiar (with the stories). 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 told Rolling Stone.
Jon, who has been dating Jennifer Westfeldt since 1997, added: “They’re called ‘privates’ for a reason. I’m wearing pants, for fucks sake. Lay off. I mean, it’s not like I’m a fucking lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world.
“But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my cock, I feel like that wasn’t part of the deal (of fame).” Personally, I’d consider that an honor, but whatever.
The 42-year-old, who plays advertising honcho Don Draper, was reportedly asked to wear underwear on set due to the “tight” 1960s trousers for the show’s sixth series.
He revealed he is taking all the trouser talk – and his assets – in his stride. “But whatever. I guess it’s better than being called out for the opposite,” he joked.
In other words, don’t talk about his penis, but still know that it is notable in size.
