Jon Hamm's Privates Nightmare Continues, as Underwear Companies Jockey to Support Him
The "Mad Men" star, who publicly rebuked those with a special interest in his manhood earlier this week, is now being courted by big underwear.
It's getting harder and harder to be Jon Hamm.
Earlier this week, the Mad Men star was quoted in a Rolling Stone cover story as being quite sore with the attention his man parts have been getting on the internet. "They're called 'privates' for a reason," he told the magazine. "I'm wearing pants, for f--k's sake. Lay off... When people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my cock, I feel like that wasn't part of the deal."
That, of course, drew more attention than ever to his nether region, which has long been heralded online for its supposedly impressive size, indicated by paparazzi photos and leaked accounts from the Mad Men set. Now, looking for a little quickie PR, two of the world's biggest underwear companies have reportedly reached out to the Golden Globe winner, with offers to lend a hand and rub out his problems.
"Jockey would like to offer our support for Jon Hamm in the form of a lifetime supply of Jockey underwear," the company told TMZ, confirming its once-private entreaty to the star.
Fruit of the Loom also made the approach, and then also curiously confirmed that they had done so to the tabloid website.
"We want people to be themselves," the company said. "And if going Commando makes you happy, we say go for it. But in case you change your mind, we got you covered."
