A certain "Mad Men" star has gotten a bit cocky.
Actor Jon Hamm has made a name for himself, both in dramatic turns on "Mad Men" and in comedic guest stints on the likes of "30 Rock".
Yet he's also scored a major fandom for a whole other reason - his penis. Hamm is famed for two things - being well-endowed, and seemingly going commando on many an occasion judging by paparazzi photos.
While hunky actors having "online shrines" dedicated to their genitalia is actually more common than you think, rare is the instance when one speaks out about it - and with an obvious note of irritation.
Following on from all the talk, and an NY Daily News piece last week that his freeballing has been a major distraction on the set of the AMC series, Hamm got to the meat of the story in an interview with Rolling Stone:
"A little rude. It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have - a prurience. They're called 'privates' for a reason. I'm wearing pants, for f--k'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."
Following on from this quote, underwear manufacturers Jockey and Fruit of the Loom have already offered Hamm a lifetime supply of their products. The sixth season of "Mad Men" kicks off April 7th.
