He's Finally Talking About What We've All Been Talking About
And Jon Hamm wishes people would stop discussing his, um, private parts.
Well, not so much, according to a new interview with Rolling Stone.
"Most of it’s tongue-in-cheek, but it is a little rude," the 42-year-old star said in the mag's cover story. "It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have – a prurience."
“They’re called ‘privates’ for a reason," he continued while addressing the popular Tumblr, Jon Hamm's Wang. "I’m wearing pants, for fu**'s sake. Lay off. I mean, it’s not like I’m a fu*king lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world. But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my c***, I feel like that wasn’t part of the deal."
"But whatever. I guess it’s better than being called out for the opposite.”
Last week, the NY Daily News reported that staffers on Mad Men asked Hamm to wear underwear while shooting the show's upcoming sixth season, due to the tight-fitting suits he was required to wear. (He's since been offered an underwear deal, according to reports.)
The Internet, of course, had a field day. (Guilty as charged. Sorry.)
Mad Men returns April 6 on AMC.
