Jon Hamm gets a little testy about the fascination with Jon’s ham.
But we do have to say, the man knows how to take a cover shot.
‘Mad Men’ star Jon Ham covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine.
On his character Don Draper in Mad Men: “Don is a very complicated character, and I’m a fairly complicated individual, but that’s pretty much where the similarity end. I try to imbue Don with a humanity that is raw and misunderstood and meaningful…It’s not that I just come in and throw a suit on and act super cool. There’s a desperation there, and it ties into fear of dying and fear of becoming irrelevant and fear of losing whatever it is you have. He’s managing this seismic change in the culture, trying to ride the wave, and in many ways, he’s failing.”
On all the jokes about his “impressive anatomy”: “Most of it’s tongue-in-cheek but it is a little rude. It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have – a prurience.”
On a Tumblr created called “Jon Hamm’s Wang”: “They’re called ‘privates’ for a reason. 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 dead…But whatever. I guess it’s better than being called out for the opposite.”
You should totally turn to Christina Hendricks, Jon, and complain to her about how awful it is to have one aspect of your physicality talked about ad nauseam. Go ahead. We’ll wait. Also, you could put on some underwear every once in a while, you know. Not that we’re complaining, of course.
Are we all watching our previous season DVDs in prep for the new season, like good little Mad Men obsessives, darlings?
Preview the new season by only showing clips from the old season! “You’re going to see your favorite characters doing surprising things!” “We’re going to look at the world of Don!” Also: upheaval.
Oh, Matthew Weiner. Your terror of spoilers is quaint.
