So … apparently Mad Men actor Jon Hamm is really tired of people noticing and publicly commenting on his penis and he wants every Rolling Stone magazine reader to know it. Hamm is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine and in his interview, he opens up about his irritation with the way that people talk about his “privates”. Some of you may be well aware that Jon Hamm does not like to wear underwear … and as a result, his seemingly prominent penis is visible thru his pants. Hamm’s prominent penis has even inspired fan sites like the Tumblr named Jon Hamm’s Wang. Well, you guys, Jon Hamm is sick and tired of the attention … and he wants YOU to know it.
Jon Hamm has a problem most men would love to have: people all over the world are convinced he has an enormous penis. Headlines like “Jon Hamm’s Penis Is Too Big for Clothes” are popping up and he’s quite sick of the whole thing. “Most of it’s tongue-in-cheek,” he tells contributing editor Josh Eells 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.” The story began when certain websites began noticing what appeared to be a rather large bulge in many photos of Hamm. The New York Daily News spoke to an “AMC insider” who said it was creating problems on the set. “The season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination,” the source said. “John’s impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear.” A Tumblr called “Jon Hamm’s Wang” has been posting photos for over two years, but Hamm doesn’t seen the humor. “They’re called ‘privates’ for a reason,” he says. “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.”
LOL! I know I shouldn’t laugh but L-O-EFFING-L! Not only am I hugely entertained by a male celebrity’s anger at being objectified (especially since women — celebrity or not — have been objectified since the beginning of time) but I can’t help but find his acrimony so ridiculously silly that I cannot take him seriously. I mean, really. Being the intrepid blogger that I am, I have long since taken notice of Jon’s Hamm and have blogged about it in the past:
I have to say, this isn’t the first time that Jon Hamm has struck me as a humorless stick in the mud. I guess everyone is entitled to feel the way they want to feel about anything … and if it truly bothers him that folks are talking about his wang then, I suppose, I feel bad that he has to be tortured so badly. But I, personally, cannot take any of this foolishness seriously … at all. LOL. 0
