Jon Hamm: Don't Talk About My Penis

The Wrap

Here's one way to ensure people will talk much more about your penis: Tell a major magazine you want them to stop.

In a Rolling Stone cover story, the "Mad Men" star addresses -- among other things -- some peoples' apparent fixation with his penis. A recent New York Daily News article, for example, cited an "AMC mole" claiming Hamm was asked to wear underwear under his tight-fitting pants because his "impressive" genitalia was "distracting."

"They're called 'privates' for a reason," the Emmy nominee told Rolling Stone. "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 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."

Hamm's penis returns to "Mad Men" on April 7.
