Jennifer Westfeldt is one lucky lady, because everything we've learned about her longtime boyfriend Jon Hamm suggests that he is one sexy man. We're not talking about his great body (though he has that) or a handsome face (okay, he has that too), but a -- ahem -- package so prominent that it actually had to be toned down in AMC's marketing for Mad Men.
Well, at least that's how the story goes. A source for The New York Daily News claims that the marketing team for AMC had to Photoshop the promotional materials sent to members of the press during Seasons 1 and 2 of Mad Men to "make his privates more, well, private." Hamm's masculinity was apparently too in-your-face during filming of the upcoming sixth season as well, as a network employee reportedly had to tell the 42-year-old actor to make sure he wore underwear while filming his scenes.
"This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination," the insider says. "Jon’s impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear."
"That's just an exaggeration," you might say, but the Internet has proved that's simply not the case. Gawker further proved the point with a story about Hamm enjoying a walk around New York City with Westfeldt last year.
Considering the fact that AMC is a cable network and Mad Men is known for its male lead's great looks, the folks over there might just be overreacting a bit. Or not -- because as already proven, too much Hamm on a regular basis is definitely distracting. On that note, happy Wednesday!
