Jon Hamm Wants You to Stop Talking About His Package
Okay, let’s just put it out there: Jon Hamm is a well-endowed dude. And I don’t mean well-endowed with talent, awesomeness, and handsomeness (although he clearly is) — I mean he’s got a distractingly large, er, package.
Okay, penis. (I’m sorry Mom)
So, yeah, the Mad Men star’s got a package that would make most dudes jealous and ladies … I don’t know. Use your imagination.
However, Hamm has spoken out about the Internet’s fascination with his nether regions. Although it’s clear that he has a pretty awesome sense of humor, the attention his penis is getting is definitely verging on creepy.
“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,” Hamm tells Rolling Stone.
The fact that he used the word “prurience,” and in the correct manner, speaks to his intelligence. (Confession: I had to look up “prurience.” Thanks for my word of the day, Jon Hamm). He’s obviously a smart and talented person, but I’m thinking the focus on his penis has gotten to be a bit much.
We get outraged when people create Twitter accounts about Anne Hathaway’s nipples, become aghast at the alleged Instagram pics of Rihanna’s vagina, and generally dislike it when women in the spotlight are judged by their looks or specific “assets.” Is there a double standard when it comes to being creepily interested in guy celebrities’ anatomy?
It looks like the comments regarding Hamm’s package aren’t negative on the surface — in fact, they’re quite complimentary. However, it’s still weird to focus specifically on someone’s penis. Imagine if there was a Tumblr account devoted to Beyonce’s derriere. (There may be one; I haven’t actually looked.) Would anyone be peeved? Or are such objectifications just a bit old hat to get anyone up in arms?
Hamm acknowledges his job as an actor is pretty sweet, but he thinks people should focus on his – I don’t know – acting?
“But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my c–k, I feel like that wasn’t part of the deal,” says Hamm. “But whatever. I guess it’s better than being called out for the opposite.”
Yeah, he has a face, people. A handsome, alluring, I’d-leave-my-husband-for-you face. Let’s focus on the important parts of Hamm. I’m just kidding. He’s a wicked actor and seems like a great dude, so let’s give the penis stalking a much-needed break.
