Jon Hamm responds to below-the-belt jokes
Internet, Jon Hamm is not amused.
The "Mad Men" star tells Rolling Stone magazine that he's well aware of the general public's fascination with what he carries in his pants, which has manifested itself lately in a string of cheeky headlines.
The New York Daily News cited anonymous sources earlier this month who claimed that Hamm had been "politely asked" to wear underwear on the "Mad Men" set because his "impressive anatomy is so distracting" in the fitted, '60s-era wardrobe.
In response, BuzzFeed listed 15 reasons why "we must liberate little Jon Hamm," while Dlisted kept it simple, blaring from a headline, "Free the Hammaconda."
"Most of it's tongue-in-cheek," Hamm acknowledged when speaking to RS about the chatter. "But it is a little rude. It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have - a prurience."
When it comes to those who double down on photos of Hamm's now notorious body part, such as a Tumblr called Jon Hamm's Wang, the star is less accommodating.
"They're called 'privates' for a reason. I'm wearing pants, for f***'s sake. Lay off," Hamm, 42, said. "I mean, it's not like I'm a f*****g lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world." The actor said he believes that when folks feel free enough to start a Tumblr about what we will call his "jon-son" that "... I feel like that wasn't part of the deal ... But whatever. I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite."

Jon's upset and shocked that he's being objectified?
I think every single female in show business just rolled their eyes and said, "Yeah, and...?"
yes you did.
Google: dweebisis + Jon Hamm
That man has a whole kielbasa under wraps! Jon Hamm, unleash the meat!!! Let it run wild as God intended.
he's one hot guy...
no class h
don't ever call that woman cold....when you have the fab 4 around you 24/7
Cnn has really taken a nose dive. Use to be a frequent viewer. No more.
It is amazing what a low level that CNN has sunk to. I rarely stop here, and everytime I do, I remember why I don't.
He should feel lucky they aren't making gnat comparisons!!
I guess the show's producers are neither gay or female.
"They're called 'privates' for a reason. I'm wearing pants, for f***'s sake. Lay off,"
Translation: yeah, that's right – check out my giant sauce-tosser
So is it safe to say he "Hamm-slams" his women?
Soak it up dude. Which would u rather be, hung like a horse or a housefly???? U know u are loving the attention so get over it.
Never ask Jon "how's it hanging?"
Even if I were straight, I'd still be g@y for Jon Hamm.
the other white meat. When you want to pork your sweetheart, use Trouser Hamm.
im bigger than he is but that kind of attention can only be good.
Did you realize this while he was pounding you in the ass.
Marriage = Man + Woman
Man + Woman + Woman + Woman + Woman + Woman
Stop using my name for silliness. I am not the OP to that entry
I, for one, appreciate Mr. Hamm's nonchalance in flaunting his trouser trout so casually. It's the only reason I watch Mad Men.
Waaa Waaa Waa Jon Hamm. If you dont like people talking about you, then dont be on tv, movies, etc etc. youre a celebrity. That's what us normal people do – talk about spoiled, whiny celebrities.
SERIOUSLY, this isn't that big of a deal.
Join the club, Mr. Hamm. We know what it's like not to be able to put it all the way in on the downstroke because it's too long.
Many guys may wish they had his "problem", but believe it or not, a guy can be just as uncomfortable with too much manhood as he can with too little.
LOL! ...and how you know that "Stuffed with a Sokman?" Do you have some particularly big friends? 'Cuz we know it's not you, you are referring to! LOL!
Sorry, Sokman. You know that wasn't me.
I'm sorry for you too, Stuffed with a Sokman! LOLOLOL!
I went to the tumblr page. I feel like a perv now.
hahaha Me too!
prurience? what's that? Google: dweebisis.
Jon, We know you're still advertising. Stop, no don't.
Now that I know Hamm has the foul vocabulary of an insecure 13-year-ol boy, I like him even less. Zero class.
I wish I had a shadow of a clue what "Fiona" is talking about. Jon Hamm just used the word "prurience," for Christ's sake.
Fiona: shall we post prurient photos of your "attributes" all over the internet, speculate about them publicly and then ask you to comment non-stop and see if you don't drop an f-bomb here and there?
Look at the smile on her face in this photo... Lucky lady.
U all just care too much. leave him alone. first y'all want big junk, then y'all dont. make up yo minds.
Jon Hamm, welcome to club of being objectified... I deal with people talking about my chest size all the time...
Oh to have his problems...
If he doesn't want people to talk about it, then he shouldn't let it all hang out there. Duh.
Why isn't Hamm wearing underwear in the first place? No matter if it's big or small, let's be sanitary. Get your shorts on!
He's at least a two trick pony because he's the voice of Mercedes Benz who probable pays him moire than he makes on Mad Men.
Yeh well I was with him in sympathizing about all the press right up until he said "I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite". What I guess is it's just too much to hope for that a man would not be obsessed with size, and he apparently is just as preoccupied.
He's a one trick pony. When MadMen ends, and it will, people will say Jon who? He better enjoy his 15 minutes and stop with the phony whining.
And yet here YOU are reading about his junk. Hilarious hypocrite.
Says the jealous troll.
You're a no trick pony.
Hamm is a ham– that's why he shows it. If he didn't want people to see it, he wouldn't flaunt it. I smell a D-Bag.
Seeing that you're nowhere near Mr. Hamm, that's probably just you you're smelling.
Then again, I would like to reach inside his pants and grab ahold of his delectable man-ham.
Hey, if you have it, flaunt it! 🙂
but still this screams marketing ploy 🙂
God bless him!
Ummmm..... I think God already blessed him...with a python
Hey, at least he's not out there wiggling it at everybody. This is, however, possibly one of the most brilliant marketing efforts ever. "Hey let's let everyone know the star of our show has a giant schvanz!" Win/win for everyone.
Huuuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmmmm! I'd be PROUD!
I think Mr. Hamm has to say this, because of that girlfriend of his. I've been a long time follower of the site Jon Hamms Wang; he never seemed to mind the photos, until recently, I'm sure that girlfriend said something...
Dear John Hamm, it's called a sense of humor. Please find one.
It wasn't funny to begin with. It's juvenile and dumb.
It's funny to morons.
Are you a moron?
So, just because some people think it's funny, he has to think it's funny too? And if he doesn't, he lacks a sense of humor? Makes sense.
if he's so upset, then perhaps he should wear baggy pants............ or the dreaded baggy shorts. I for one hope he does not.
I like Jon Hamm. He seems like a really nice guy and I'm sorry he's bothered by the media constant harrassment,but it's about time men are called out on the "endowments" for a change.
"endowments" for the arts?
Give up acting and in 5 years no one will care what you do.
Except for your Mom.
He should give it up or take some acting classes.
