Jon Hamm, star of the only show I've ever genuinely wished could just go on forever, has finally come to terms with one of the more harrowing aspects of his celebrity status: rumors of a massive member. With GQ Australia wisely naming Hamm the International Man of the Decade this week, the perfect opportunity has been presented for the Emmy-winning actor to make peace with these phallic whisperings.
"It was a topic of fascination for other people, certainly not me," Hamm explained of the allegedly huge organ that's been spotted by professional journalists and then written about by paid writers for years now:
"By the way, as rumors go—not the worst," Ham added. Certainly not. This angst-free approach to the rumors stands in stark contrast to Hamm's previous assessment, including some understandably firm words he gave to Rolling Stone back in 2013.
"It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have, a prurience," Hamm said at the time. "They're called privates for a reason. I'm wearing pants, for fuck's sake. Lay off."
While shooting his new GQ Australia cover this month, Hamm also kept it decidedly real about the additional trappings of modern celebrity. "Celebrity, another one of those [things] that has very distasteful connotation sometimes," Hamm said. "It's the kind of thing that's nice as a byproduct, I guess, but if it becomes the only thing you want, it doesn't really make… I think it cheapens it, I guess."
Jon Hamm has spoken. Be a hero and take down all those Tumblr pages now.
