The (Many) Reasons Jon Hamm May Have Been Asked To Wear Underwear
For the past five seasons of Mad Men, Jon Hamm has stripped down countless times for some of the steamiest scenes on television, with a variety of lucky female co-stars like January Jones and Jessica Pare.
While there haven’t been any complaints about the actor’s intimate scenes on the AMC series, it looks like his private parts have been causing some trouble on set.
An insider told the New York Daily News this week that Hamm was recently instructed by a staffer to wear underwear while shooting.
“This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination,” according to the source. “Jon’s impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear.”
Hamm’s habit of going commando on set is nothing new. According to the insider, promo photos for the first two seasons of Mad Men received heavy Photoshop treatment to obscure the star’s goods.
While all this attention on Hamm’s private parts has caused some to take a closer look at his most recent outings — Celebuzz has collected 10 photos for your viewing pleasure — not everyone is taking this exposure lightly.
“It is ridiculous and not really funny at all,” Hamm’s rep told the Daily News. “I’d appreciate you taking the high road and not resorting to something childish like this that’s been blogged about 1,000 times.”
The sixth season of Mad Men will kick off with a two-hour premiere on AMC April 7.
