Jon Hamm is well aware that the Internet has been talking about his penis this past week. It all started when a report came out claiming that AMC asked him to wear underwear while filming “Mad Men” because his genitalia could be seen through his costumes (yes, this is a thing). This news came out before “Mad Men’s” Season 6 Los Angeles premiere, so of course one of the outlets in attendance had to bring it up.
The website in question ended up being omg! Yahoo, who asked Hamm if he’d heard about any of the stories claiming his updated outfits on “Mad Men” forced him to wear underwear on set. “Yes, but I don’t need to talk about that,” he told the site. Well, at least he’s heard the stories.
This echoes the response Hamm’s representative gave the New York Daily News when the outlet broke the Underwear-gate story. “It is ridiculous and not really funny at all,” the rep said. “I’d appreciate you taking the high road and not resorting to something childish like this that’s been blogged about 1,000 times.”
“Mad Men” returns to AMC on April 7 with a two-hour premiere.
