Jon Hamm has no problem measuring up when it come to his “impressive anatomy”— and now the Mad Men star is opening up about the penis envy that’s got everybody talking.
"Most of it's tongue-in-cheek," the star, 42, told Rolling Stone Magazine. "But it is a little rude. It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have - a prurience."
The chatter about Jon’s man parts began when photos of the actor on the Mad Men set revealed a noticeable bulge in the pants area.
Soon after the pics surfaced, The New York Daily News spoke to a set insider who revealed the following: "The season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination. John's impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear."

But now, Jon wants fans to know that his penis should not be a matter of discussion.
"They're called 'privates' for a reason," he says. "I'm wearing pants, for f---'s sake. Lay off. I mean, it's not like I'm a lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world. But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my [penis], I feel like that wasn't part of the deal ... But whatever. I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite."
While Jon seems to be holding in some hostility about his newfound claim to fame, one thing’s for sure: we’ll be sure to pay extra close attention during the Mad Men season premiere April 7 on AMC.
