Jon Hamm: 'They're Called Privates for a Reason'

By: Brandon Voss

Poor Jon Hamm. People just can't stop talking about the Mad Men star's impressive bulge.

We've been closely following news of his prominent junk for years now, and last week we discussed juicy new rumors about how Hamm's character's tight ’60s pants were both distracting and a big joke on set — and the fact that his annoyed rep really wanted people to stop talking about it. Luckily, Rolling Stone decided not to take the strongly worded suggestion.

"Most of it's tongue-in-cheek," Hamm says in his first solo Rolling Stone cover story. "But it is a little rude. It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have — a prurience."

Oh, so he's not a fan of Tumblrs like Jon Hamm's Wang or our pals over at The Underwear Expert posting and picking apart his crotch shots? "They're called 'privates' for a reason," the modest 42-year-old continues. "I'm wearing pants, for fuck's 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... But whatever. I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite."

Well, we hope you're all very proud of yourselves! Do you feel sorry for Jon Hamm, or should he get over himself and his big hog?
