Jon Hamm: Crotch Pictures, Talk About My Private Parts Are "Rude"
Jon Hamm's Endowment for the Arts! At long last, the Mad Men hunk, 42, has opened up about a literally below-the-belt topic: Frequent paparazzi closeup shots of his, er, impressive crotch, most of them suggesting that the actor prefers not to wear underwear. "Yeah, I'm familiar," Hamm tells the new issue of Rolling Stone regarding snapshots (and ever-evolving online memes) of his nether regions.
"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," complains the award-winning AMC star, who has been dating Jennifer Westfeldt since 1997. (Talk of Hamm's genitals accelerated last week, when the Daily News claimed that the actor was asked to wear undergarments for season six of Mad Men due to "tight" 1960s-era pants.)
Continued Hamm of the X-rated scrutiny on his underwear-less excursions: "They're called 'privates' for a reason. I'm wearing pants, for f--k's sake. Lay off."
Still, the celebrated NYC resident keeps it all in perspective, for the most part. "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--k, I feel like that wasn't part of the deal [of fame]."
"But whatever," says the well-endowed Hmm, sipping a Budweiser during the Rolling Stone interview. "I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite."
The new issue of Rolling Stone hits stands March 26.
