Jon Hamm knows about the "Jon Hamm's Wang" Tumblr and he is less than amused. The Mad Men star recently opened up (not like that, you perv) to Rolling Stone for a cover story in advance of the triumphant return of everyone's favorite '60s-era drama about advertising executives.

Recently, Jon Hamm made blogosphere headlines when an AMC insider told the New York Daily News that Hamm's bulge had to be photoshopped out of promotional shots for the first season of Mad Men. Oh, and that AMC had to ask him to wear underwear while shooting of the upcoming season. During the interview, he addressed the, ahem, elephant in the room.

He doesn't stop there, though. Hamm goes on to tell Eells how he really feels.

"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 f***ing lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world. But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my c***, I feel like that wasn't part of the deal ... But whatever. I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite."
