Hopping into bed with Jon Hamm seems to have shot to the top of every Hollywood actresses’ bucket list in the last few weeks thanks to numerous reports that Jon is packing more than a little heat in the bulge department. The buzz claimed that Jon’s significant bulge was so prominent in promotional photos and certain scenes, that the actor was ever so “politely” told to wear underwear by the network powers that be. I guess the tight-fitting pants worn by Don Draper in 1960s-set Season 6 of Mad Men meant that Jon’s larger-than-average package was too distracting on camera.
Linda Cardellini portrays Jon’s mistress on the cult classic show and she was recently asked by E! About doing those sex scenes with the man in question.
“It’s always been an interesting part of the job, but they’re wonderful scenes. He’s great. Really great guy and a fantastic actor.”
I’m sure Jon does make his leading ladies feel as comfortable as possible when rolling around in the sheets on camera. From what we’ve all seen he has absolutely no reason not to be dripping with confidence when called on to… perform. Actually this little scandal is kind of nice because we’ve spent five years debating whether or not Christina Hendrick’s boobs are real (they have to be) and I seriously never thought there would be another Mad Men question to get more attention than that!
I’m not sure if all the drama surrounding his junk will cause Jon to invest in some boxers, at least for when he’s on camera. I am positive that his girlfriend of fifteen years, Jennifer Westfeldt is a pretty lucky lady that seems to have no complaints in her sex life – that’s for sure!
Were the producers right to tell Jon to cover it up a bit better or does he have every right to go commando even on set while in character? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
