Cover Boy: Jon Hamm for Rolling Stone Magazine

Posted on March 28, 2013

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.

Delicious.

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.

      BOOM.

        Clap, clap, clap!

      • ScarlettHarlot

        “The defense rests!” drops mic.

        • l_c_ann

          But we all see where the mic landed.

          • ScarlettHarlot

            HA! Your comment made me spit my lunch out on my monitor, thanks a lot! :)

      • http://www.twitter.com/anneofnogables AnneNotHathaway

        Amen. I don’t have one, but I’m pretty confident that a penis is much easier to hide than a spectacularly large rack. Poor, beautiful, talented, wealthy, big-penised Jon Hamm.

          I’ll be visiting that Tumblr page now…

          • Rand Ortega

            Race ya!

        • tereliz

          LOL, I’m glad I wasn’t the only one thinking that. I mean, it’s not like his pocket monster is so big he can’t find pants that fit. Boo hoo.

          • http://www.twitter.com/anneofnogables AnneNotHathaway

            Maybe he’s really upset because it’s NOT really a pocket monster, he’s just been carrying a sock full of flour for emergency baking needs in his pants, and now he feels inadequate because people assume he’s got a Nessie-esque beast down there.

            • Donna Tabor

              LOL!

        • sockandaphone

          yeah its like “welcome to the daily struggles of being born a woman, please cry moar.”

      • StellaZafella

        A beautiful, talented woman like Ms Hendricks has little choice how her assets are viewed…an unfortunate fact of life that the Marylin Monroe’s learn to exploit all the way to the bank, if they’re smart to boot.
        But as for you, Jon Hamm, it’s not that complicated: If you choose to put “the luggage” out front it’s the first thing people will find remarkable about you…in the end…it’s really up to you.

      • http://twitter.com/SuzBald Susan Baldwin

        I would like to thank T.Lo for speaking up for women far more strongly and cleverly than many of my fellow women. It’s not unnoticed, gentlemen. Also, I laughed out loud.

      • ZnSD

        And *that* is what is known as a “BLAM! BITCH PUDDING!!!”

      • http://twitter.com/AnniNoone Erin_MJ

        I want to ^ this thirty-six more times. We love ya, Jon, but BOOM.

      • oldbobbydraper

        is he supposed to be responsible for people talking about christina’s boobs? does he contribute to that discussion in some way that i’ve never heard? i don’t understand why only christina is allowed to be exasperated by a body part being talked/asked about ad nauseum.

        • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

          The point has gone sailing past your head. It is merely this: that actresses – and women generally – have to put up with that kind of physical scrutiny all the time, unlike Jon Hamm – and men generally – who are only occasionally subjected to it, if at all.

          • oldbobbydraper

            no i am perfectly capable of understanding your point about christina’s boobs – and btw, you better check the posts and comments around here about christina, for they actually DO contribute to exactly what you’re complaining about – it is simply misdirected at jon hamm. “OH YEAH? SAY THAT TO CHRISTINA, JON. GO ON, WE’LL WAIT. FEEL BAD NOW??!” implies that he, jon hamm, is responsible for having participated in objectifying her or focusing lustily/pruriently on her body parts and therefore has no right to complain about others doing that to him. you could have made your point about christina’s breasts being oogled and talked about endlessly in blog posts (yes, here too) and how unfair that is separately from commentary on hamm or his answer to the interview questions.

            • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

              I have no idea what the hell you’re going on about at this point. There is no implication on our parts that he is responsible for how Christina Hendricks is treated. If you think that, then yes, the point really has flown right past your head.

      • sekushinonyanko

        I feel like it would be a closer comparison if there were reports of Christina getting into rumbles with wardrobe about foundation garments and wandering around the world braless with the equivalent of a water balloon fight occurring in her blouse and asking “why do people keep talking about my boobs?” I mean, if you consider that his issue would vanish if he would attire himself in standard undergarments that nearly all humans employ daily.

        • 3hares

          But the whole idea that he’s not wearing underwear has been denied by the man himself. It became an accepted truth that he didn’t wear underwear (and wore tight pants) because his bulge shows through his pants–just as Christina pretty much is accused of trying to get people to stare at her breasts the minute her cleavage showed.

    • Paigealicious

      “Also, you could put on some underwear every once in a while, you know.” LMAO!! This.

      • Heather

        I’d prefer that he continue to go commando, thank you very much.

        • Paigealicious

          Hey, I’m not complaining either, but don’t put it out there if you don’t want us to ogle it :)

          • http://www.facebook.com/theAccidentalHousewife Leah Elzinga

            yeah, not so much, though. Seriously, this opinion isn’t kind for either sex.

            • Paigealicious

              True, but I think this is very different than the Christina Hendricks situation. Breasts are just out there, whether or not she’s dressing to actually “show them off.” He could easily put on some underwear or wear pants that don’t conform to every crease on his body if he didn’t want people to see his dick. He knows he’s showing it off.

            • Heather

              I agree. Wrangle that thing if you don’t want people to see it. (Tho my preference would be that he NOT wrangle it.)

    • http://twitter.com/SillyGrrlJen Silly Grrl

      I like how he’s whining about people talking about his cock. I AM ONLY HUMAN, JON. YOUR HAMMBONE IS DISTRACTING.

      • ZnSD

        Hammaconda.

    • http://twitter.com/Lily1129 Lily

      Now that a man is getting some attention about his body in a potentially less than admiring way, everyone is up in arms. I say boohoo, deal with it like the women of hollywood have been dealing with it since the beginning of time.
      (Not that I think it’s ok, I’d rather it stopped for everyone involved.)
      Anyway, he looks good, like always.

      • http://twitter.com/monapily monapily

        Oh, it is ALL admiration, honey. Do not fret.

        • http://twitter.com/Lily1129 Lily

          Yeah, I think I phrased that wrong. It’s the kind of attention that’s less on his acting chops and more on his physical appearance, which is not always what actors want the focus to be on. What I meant was that people are like LOOK THIS DUDE HAS A PENIS instead of LOOK THIS DUDE ACTS GOOD and that seems to irritate him, to which I say Smile pretty, darling. This is why you get paid. I’ve heard a thousand and one people tell women “suck it up, this is part of hollywood” therefore forgive me if I can’t muster up some indignation for Jon here.
          (not aimed at you personally, btw, just the universe in general)

      • oldbobbydraper

    • Sobaika

      Christina Hendricks’ eyes are rolling so hard they’ve practically fallen out.

      • ScarlettHarlot

        “Christina Hendricks has eyes?” asked hordes of stunned men (and “reporters” everywhere) “We were unaware of anything existing above her neck.”

        • Adelaidey

          Which is, of course, preposterous. She has one of the most striking faces in showbusiness.

          • ScarlettHarlot

            I totally agree, and beyond that, I think she’s a good actress, so I support her for calling out people during interviews when all they want to talk about is her shape, and think it’s obnoxious she has to go through that.

            • Melissa Brogan

              THANK YOU. I think she’s a pretty good actress, and I feel like it hardly ever gets talked about because every journalist wants to talk about how hot she is (and she is, but she’s more than her body…)

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PBGUD7Y6KYRNL7PCKYNPD2UGSM Carol

          That reminds me of that Huggies diaper ad where there experienced mom nursing her baby reminds the waiter to look at her face and not stare at her chest.

      • SassieCassy

        really though, he should be smart enough to know how stupid complaining about your peen would sound

    • Apocalipstick Now Redux

      He comes off as a complete ass. I know it’s an unpopular sentiment, but I don’t find him even slightly attractive. If I saw him on the street, I’d walk by without a second glance, bulge or no bulge. He has a disturbing lack of upper lip that totally creeps me out.

      • tereliz

        The upper lip is where he loses me, too. But damn, does he look good in a beard…

      • Cheryl

        I didn’t enjoy the last season as much as I did the early ones. But I’ll take whatever I can get. I still love Don Draper, because of Jon’s performance.

    • MilaXX

      He knows he gonna be pap’d, put some underwear on! Honestly I find his freeballing a little gross.

    • Eva_baby

      Sorry but that cover makes him look uber douchey. And yeah, what is with not showing any real promo? You can make a promo that gives no plot content away, they do it each week. At this point the over-control of not showing anything is such a put off.

      • Mismarker

        Total agreement! While I watch Mad Men like a good little obsessive, I have had no particular good or bad opinion of Jon Hamm. Wow. This interview and cover photo just make him sound (and look) like a, er, dick.

      • NDC_IPCentral

        Matt Weiner is consistent in not offering any glimpses of a new season. He’s the producer, and it’s his prerogative. I’m hardly put off; I’m really looking forward to Season 6 of the best show that’s been on television in many years.

      • Jacqueline Wessel

        You know I agree about the over-control aspect. Maybe it’s because I didn’t really like Mad Men after watching the first episode, and I only continued to watch because it was so beautiful looking and because I remember that era; but I’m sick of Matt Weiner. I don’t want to be told that I will be shocked by what happens and I get the impression that Weiner is more interested in manipulating the audience than in telling a good and believable story. I’m not looking forward to the new season but I probably will watch it since I’ve already put in so much time, but I won’t be surprised if I decide to drop out before it’s over. I’ve been known to change the channel in the middle of a show and never go back.

    • Kate

      I don’t know; I think I like Alison Brie’s WIRED cover (Brie as Draper) better.

    • lobsterlen

      In Jon’s defense … he was asked. The reporter asked him TWICE about his cock. He didn’t bring it up. I’ve seen Christine get far more defensive than that.

      • Donna Tabor

        And if he hadn’t answered there wouldn’t have been anything about it in the article.

        Just saying.

        • oldbobbydraper

          um, you bet there would be. “when asked about all of the press about his cock, hamm refused to respond: [insert quot from jon hamm making him sound like a prima dona jerk for wanting to control the interview questions]“. cue snotty outrage from readers.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

      I mean…. they asked him about it, how should he answer? Is there really a good way to answer “how do you feel about everybody talking about your dick?” I’m asking, really.

      • RebeccaKW

        I’m not sure there is a good way, but I feel like maybe he could have at least acted like obsession over privates wasn’t something new-maybe at least recognize that women have been dealing with the same situation forever. Maybe he does in the full article, but the snippet above makes it sound like he thinks he’s the only one.

      • http://blog.mattalgren.com/ Matt Algren

          That’s great.
          But I don’t really mind his answers because he’s being honest, which is better than fake any day. And if in being honest, you reveal personality flaws, so be it…

      • http://www.facebook.com/isadora.paiva.7 Isadora Paiva

        Yeah, there are plenty of good answers! Noting how women have to deal with it everyday, whether they are famous or not, whether they are asking or attention or not (he could, like everyone else here has pointed out, wear underwear if it makes him so uncomfortable). Also, see how Fassbender reacted last year, when the comments were much more out there (George Clooney talked about it in the Golden Globes for crying out loud!), and he was in a great movie where the nudity was warranted, so his exposure was for a much better reason IMO. Personnaly, I think Fassbender only won points for how polite he was, and in all honestly I find him much hotter than Jon Hamm, in *every* way…

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

          Yes, Fassbender is sexier IMO.

    • Kicky

      If he doesn’t want people to talk about his dick, he should probably ask his PR people to stop planting stories about it in the press. It isn’t a coincidence that the press suddenly noticed when he needed press for Mad Men. He really seems kind of gross. There was a blind item from about a year or two ago about an actor who made the wardrobe department uncomfortable because he refused to wear underwear.

      • WhiteOprah

        Right on! Although it may have been AMC or Mad Men’s PR people, but they’re the ones who put a story out saying he needed to wear underwear.

    • formerlyAnon

      Whoever styled him for the cover did a good job.
      The paragraph counseling him to consult Ms. Hendricks & to consider wearing underwear to deflect attention cracked me up.

      I have a tangential comment to make. Yesterday, I clicked on a link to a picture of Steve McQueen, and I was unprepared to see him nonchalantly, fully dressed, holding his cock in his hand. I’m still a bit shell-shocked about it all.

      Putting aside whether he’s being defensive or over-reacting or complaining, I appreciate that he sounds like a grown-up, and particularly in the intelligent assessment of his acting as Don Draper.

      • mhleta

        There’s a great interview by Terry Gross on WHYY’s “Fresh Air.” (I think you can stream it.) He’s a really smart, astute and articulate guy. He’s also really funny. Love his stints on SNL. He’s right up there with Baldwin and Timberlake in the funny SNL host department.

        • Qitkat

          Love Terry Gross. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll check it out.

        • Ogden1990

          Ha! I looked up “prurience” about a minute before reading your post. Heard the interview. He is smart and funny and I think he’d defend Christina’s “privates” in a heartbeat – because I want him to be that kind of guy…

    • http://www.facebook.com/mahoho Mary Alexander

      The cover photo is killing me — you know how the little breakout Disney starlets always get the “sexpot lolita” look with the lollipop in their mouth? It looks like Jon is giving me his best “Oooh daddy I’ve been a BAAAD GIRL” face with his cigarette.

    • twocee

      Ok…I’m going to finally come clean to all of the BKs.

      I do not find Jon Hamm attractive. At all. There, I’ve said it. I feel better now.

      And yeah, cry me a river, dude and then go talk to all of the women who constantly have to tell men that “their eyes are up here.”

    • j_anson

      Aw, does the poor widdle man not like being physically objectified? In other words, re: Christina Hendricks: YES, EXACTLY. I imagine he’s thrilled that the article title they went with is “Don Draper: EXPOSED.” That’ll definitely help.

      On the other hand, to me this cover shot says “creepy uncle you wish your parents wouldn’t invite to Thanksgiving because he smells like cigarettes and flirts with everything that moves, including you, and it’s soooooo gross.” So maybe that will help him avoid attention.

    • stu844

      Thank God someone finally made the comparison to Christina Hendricks! That was my first thought too!!

    • Zaftiguana

      It’s kind of delicious to have the person on a magazine cover sticking something in their mouth be a man for once.

      • alyce1213

        I wish it were anything but a cigarette.

        • calimon

          I imagined it was just a pen, like one of those Bic pens with the white plastic barrel.

    • alyce1213

      This is not a good cover. He looks like a douchebag putting a cigarette in his mouth. NO CIGARETTES ON MAGAZINE COVERS. IT’S NOT COOL.
      (And I’ve seen enough of his dick wobbling around his trousers, thank you.)

    • susu11

      Dude, can you imagine how Michael Fassbender feels? It makes me kind of mad when people always bring up his amazing package in ‘Shame’ cause he gave an outstanding performance in that but it always gets overlooked because of his dong. I feel a little bad for Jon, but I’m not really crying a river for him – I’m pretty sure he’s not wearing underwear half the time so how the hell can you not look, honestly?

    • andreawey

      “I’m wearing pants, for fuck’s sake”…….serious chill down my……..spine……;)

    • korilian

      Excuse me while I go search for this tumblr.

    • http://twitter.com/kerryev kerryev

      While the Christina Hendricks point is well taken, I’m not getting the level of mad in a lot of these comments. He said, “It’s a little rude,” which doesn’t seem that far off base to me.

      • tereliz

        Well, of course people can’t stop talking about his junk—just look at the way he’s DRESSED! ;)

        As much as I think it’s hysterical that his penis has been so objectified, I would find it a rude invasion of privacy, too, if I were in his position. I mean, sure CH gets called out for baby-heads any time she goes out with her tits improperly wrangled, but that’s by people who want to see her look good in clothes.

        Which made me think… How are all the guys who are obsessed with her boobs any different than the folks who find Hamm’s trouser snake erotic (and want to devote their precious tumblr space to it)? Not saying he ought to be flattered, but there are much worse image problems to have. No one in the media is saying he doesn’t know how to dress himself. But, you know, if he wants to be taken seriously as an actor, maybe he should look into this new invention called underwear.

    • mhleta

      I’ve seen the occasional shot of JH where he’s obviously free-balling, and I’ve commented on the photos when they’ve been put up here, but I feel it’s the hardly only thing people talk about in regards to his career. If he were a Kardashian with nothing else to offer, then maybe, but his uncircumcised joint is pretty insignificant to those of us who find him and his work so fascinating. He needs to put on his big boy drawers and get over it. (And if he’d put on his big boy drawers in the first place, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.) And TLo, I’ll take your point about Ms. Hendricks one step further. Imagine if Christina Hendricks went braless and then complained it was the only thing people noticed about her? We’d all cry “foul” as we should here.

      • urbanamish

        circumcised. (see barney’s shopping spree.)

      • Sweetpea176

        Or if Christina only dressed with her babyheads exposed and jacked up under her chin, and complained about the attention, I’d have just as little sympathy for her as I do for Hamm.

      • oldbobbydraper

        “(And if he’d put on his big boy drawers in the first place, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.)” – the next time a famous female or her fans complain about her body being discussed lecherously, i will quote you that if she had just covered it up in the first place, then the conversation wouldn’t be happening. i wonder how that will go over?

    • http://www.facebook.com/AdriannaGrezak Adrianna Grężak

      “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.”

      My first thought exactly. Christina Hendricks can’t sit through a late-night interview without the Craig Ferguson slyly joking about the size of her breasts.

      He’s reacting so strongly because he probably previously didn’t experience the kind of objectification that all women do. Even though it’s wrong for me to feel this way, as a woman I find it a little refreshing that a male celebrity is experiencing this kind of crude attention.

    • breathlss79

      He should be smoking. He’s Don Draper, for Christ’s sake!

    • ccm800

      and with that he takes up official position in the asshat column. Done. Gross. All charm worn off.

    • Czarina5 Czarina5

      In a 2+ hour interview on the podcast, “You Made it Weird with Pete Holmes,” Jon Hamm is articulate, intelligent, interesting and has a clear sense of boundaries for his celebrity and his privacy. In that interview he said,

      “I have friends with five year old boys who don’t pay as much attention to their penises as much as the Internet has all of a sudden decided to pay to mine. And it’s juvenile and it’s ridiculous, but it’s the perfect storm of prurience and titillation and page-clicks and this that and the other.”

      ”And it’s not like I’m running around with my dick out. They’re literally pointing at pictures of my penis in my pants–and underwear, by the way. I wear underwear every day of my life. I’ve never not worn underwear.”

      This interview provides a better sense of Mr. Hamm’s reaction instead of a few quotes pulled out of the context of an article in Rolling Stone to sell magazine.

      • NoGovernmentName

        Do you believe him? About wearing underwear? Because the pix that highlight his penis indicate that whatever foundation garments he is choosing to wear are insufficient to the task, and clearly he is well aware of this failing, as is most of the Western world. If he is so bothered by this, he could, um, reign it in, no? Or not. But then people are going to look, and talk about it. It’s the nature of the beast, so to speak.

      Hee. “Testy.” I get it.

      Oh, poor me. When I decided to be an actor, I didn’t realize that my looks might be a factor. I thought all that mattered was my talent. Now people are noticing my physical attributes. Wah! That’s not what I signed up for. Now people are saying I have a big dick. It’s so tough being me!

      Prurience, eh? What an impressive … vocabulary.

      Good point about various women’s parts continually under the microscope; no matter what they wear.
      But I’m even a little put off with the fact he doesn’t wear underwear. Like ever. Not a habit I can admire even if he cuts
      a studly figure. And if he doesn’t want the extra attention; buy some shorts. WEAR them. 99% of the population does.

      that cover is possibly the worst angle of him i have ever seen. you’d think they would have gone for an iconic, never throw it away image.

      I just don’t get how he’s being “douchey” by expressing his feelings on the matter. He has been the subject of this kind of commentary for years and has been a good sport about it. This is the first time he’s gone on record with any comments of his own, and I think he’s entitled, as anyone would be. He’s very intelligent and has always seemed extremely aware of and sensitive to feminist issues and gender politics, so I doubt the issues with reverse objectification are lost on him. As the commenter upthread ^ stated, he did discuss the matter on Pete Holmes’ podcast and said that he does indeed wear underwear all the time. And what nobody ever posts is the pictures of him that clearly show underwear peeking out from the top of his pants, so obviously it does happen.

      It’s also a shame that the preponderance of celebrities who are “famous for being famous” and that whole attitude of excessive sharing and access has skewed the culture to the point where nobody thinks anyone should be entitled to any privacy anymore. Actually, I’m not sure it’s even so much about privacy as it is about manners. Do we have to discuss EVERYTHING?

        touché! best argument in support (no pun intended…or?) of JH’s defense.

      The lustful homosexual in me admires Mr. Hamm’s nonchalant attitude towards underpants. But, I also know costume designers/wardrobe people who get very irritated with actors who don’t wear garments under their costumes, with the potential result that an expensive, difficult to replace and clean costume might need to specially cleaned. It’s not very professional while in costume.

      Running around Silver Lake or Chelsea and wearing his own clothes, the Hammaconda should be allowed to roam free and untethered…

      I try so hard… I just don’t think he’s THAT great an actor. He’s not a bad actor, but he’s no DDL, I guess is what I’m trying to say (but who is). In my world there is DDL, Leo (he earned my respect after The Departed), Ben Kingsley, Kenneth Brannagh, Damien Lewis, Gary Oldman.. just to get started. JH just doesn’t even cut the list. Sorry JH. :(

      Mr. Hamm needs to call David Duchovny. Dave was never shy or embarrassed about his endowments. ;)

      Christina Hendricks (and every other actress) certainly has to deal with this far more than any male actor does, including Jon Hamm. But it seems counter-productive to express that by turning those same justifications against JH (that s/he is an actress and therefore their body belongs to the public, that he’s asking for it by wearing skin-tight pants and no underwear (even when he’s wearing baggy pants and underwear), that it’s a compliment.

    • oldbobbydraper

      god, you all are so predictable. he was asked the question about how he feels about the discussion of his wang, and he answered it honestly. if he’d been dishonest and said, oh it’s great! love it! so flattering! can’t get enough of these questions about my cock! – then everyone would STILL be at his door with torches about what an egotistical douche he is. and if he’d put the kibosh on cock questions before the interview, it would’ve gotten out and then he would be called a douche for THAT too (demanding prima donna! he has no expectation of privacy!) damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t.

        Jon Hamm’s cock thanks you for your support.

        • calimon

          because obviously JH won’t even give his own any (ie wear underwear) :P
