Jon Hamm’s big, freewheelin’ bulge is still causing problems at ‘Mad Men’

Jon Hamm’s Hamm Dong has been a major gossip player for several years now. I think we were all aware of Hamm’s business when he first hit the scene, but it was one tabloid story in 2010 which captured everybody’s attention and made The Hamm Dong something really special. In 2010, the tabloids reported that Jon refused to wear underwear under his costumes when filming Mad Men, and his lack of underwear was causing a lot of problems. Now the NY Daily News has a similar sounding story, which actually makes perfect sense because The Hamm Dong has reached critical mass at this point – people are actually looking at his bulge in every photo these days!

“Mad Men” star Jon Hamm’s private parts are causing a stir. Again. An AMC insider tells Confidenti@l that during filming of the sixth season of the hit show — when the ’60s-style clothing was a tight fit — Hamm was politely instructed by a staffer at the network to please wear underwear while shooting his scenes.

“This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination,” a source tells us. “Jon’s impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear.”

Our insider says that during seasons one and two, AMC’s marketing team even had to do some Photoshop magic on promotional booklets that went out to press in order to make his privates more, well, private.

Especially causing a giggle for the crew were scenes shot in Hawaii, where Hamm lounges around sipping a cocktail in tiny shorts that leave little to the imagination.

“His privates are the inside joke,” says our source, who adds that Hamm “knows what he’s got.”

A quick Google search does show that the actor appears to go commando while not on set. There’s no shortage of images of him strolling down the street looking very healthy.

“Imagine how distracting that would be on the side of a bus or building,” laughed our source. “When the promotional pictures came back the first few seasons, we had to work with them. Everyone was concerned about too much Christina Hendricks boob, but it’s Jon that has the most to show. It’s a good problem to have.”

This season, the network hired popular ’60s illustrator Brian Sanders to tackle the poster task with a paintbrush. In past seasons’ posters, we’ve seen Hamm’s Don Draper both sitting and standing with his back to us. The new season debuts on Sunday, April 7, with a two-hour premiere.

A rep for Hamm said: “It is ridiculous and not really funny at all. I’d appreciate you taking the high road and not resorting to something childish like this that’s been blogged about 1,000 times.”

[From The NY Daily News]

That statement from Hamm’s rep is kind of crazy, right? WHY is it childish to note that the Hamm Dong is swinging in the breeze over and over? People NOTICE it. It’s not like we even have to point it out. And it IS funny – if Jon Hamm wore panties, they would be in a twist. Unfortunately, he does not wear panties so we can talk about it all we want.

    Ooops the Hammaconda did it again!
    (can’t wait to see Mad Men!)

  3. Karen says:

    FINALLY some good news today! :D

  4. Lolly says:

    No wonder cat woman over there refuses to leave him

    • Lucy says:

      Her face is seriously messed up.

      • Stuart Horsely says:

        I know, those cheek implants look painful and that mouth :P does she suck on prunes? Her nose is ruined as well. Ugh.

    • Irishae says:

      I’m getting more of a rabbit vibe. I’d prefer she staying away from my garden and furniture.

    • Jub-Jub says:

      What is up with her cheeks?! I don’t understand why people want filler there, it makes them look like chipmunks.

    • spugzbunny says:

      I reckon that’s why she looks like that. Her face has sort of frozen in shock from all the years of looking at the Hamm-Dong

  5. Hannah says:

    “looking very healthy” *lol*

    • Yup, Me says:

      I know, right? I caught that too. Made me wonder, is a guy packing a little bitty not healthy?

      I guess he could be sick with stress at the thought of taking off his pants in front of a lover for the first time.

  6. Green is Good says:

    Why won’t they let the Hamm-Dong be great?
    Let the Dong roam free!

  7. T.C. says:

    Jon Hamm and Anne Hathawy lovers of commando style. Can’t they change his contract to include underwear must be worn at all times on set?

    • dave says:

      He is in a position to do what he wants really… the show couldn’t really continue if he left and if it did it would be rather… ehhh

      • DreamyK says:

        Hamm Dong, positions, doing what he really wants…what a lovely thought this early in the morning! :)

    • fabgrrl says:

      If you mean only wearing underwear, then he’d probably be into it.

  8. RHONYC says:


    i love his woman’s face, like ‘umm-hmm chil’, i just had what he’s workin’ with in the limo!’ :lol:

  9. elceibeno08 says:

    Are there any pictures of Hamm showing off his god-given gift. I mean pictures where you can see the imprint of penis that have NOT been photoshopped?

  10. jinni says:

    I know this story and his antics are going to be seen as cheeky and adorable by most on this site, but I find all of this really unprofessional. How many times do they have to ask him to wear underwear for the sake of his job? Just put some tightie whities on during the job and when he’s done he can free ball to his hearts delight during his own time. I don’t get why this is so hard for him to understand. You’re not a toddler anymore, put on your big boy panties, Jon.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      jinni, I agree that Hamm should flip & flop on his own time. This is not very considerate of the costumers, as they have asked him to reign it in!

      We don’t hear stories of Christina Hendricks distracting everyone at work with her heaving bosom, after all.

    • Amanda says:

      Yeah, ITA. To me it just makes him seem like an unprofessional jerk. Also, it’s kinda skeevy.

    • Guesto says:

      ^^ All this. Seriously, it’s called being professional.

    • JulieM says:

      Jinni- I’m glad you said that (and the other posters who agree with you). I like Hamm but I think that it’s unprofessional for him to let it flap on the set. And kind of low class, too. On his own time, that’s his business. We are definitely in the minority here.

    • Diana says:

      YES! Oh God this entire thing it’s so tacky! You have a big dong, get over it. Or is he that insecure he has to flaunt it all the time? It is just unprofessional all around.

    • Lee says:

      Well, if we’re in the minority, I’m ok with that. I find this reluctance to wear underwear on set gross, actually. Not to mention unprofessional.

      • Dirtnap says:

        +100, Jinni, I completely agree. He shouldn’t make it his job to make other people’s jobs more difficult (I almost said “harder” but stopped myself in a rare moment of thinking it through!).

    • Esmom says:

      I’m with you. I also kinda can’t believe he’d really be that stubborn and unprofessional and think maybe the story is BS.

      • Happy21 says:

        I agree. I think the story may be fabricated based on the story from years ago where they claimed the same thing. I just can’t see him being like that.

    • Guesto says:

      If nothing else, wouldn’t you think he’d wear underwear out of consideration for the wardrobe people who have to do the clean-up afterwards?

    • jinni says:

      Well, it’s nice to know that others agree. Especially, since the previous story about his inconsiderate behavior on the job, only seemed to illicit fan girlish squealing in the comments.

    • Izzy says:

      YES. Thank you, I’ve been thinking the same thing.

    • Irishae says:

      If this story isn’t BS, I agree that it’s soooo not okay. That’s just bad behavior! I might be one of the few who don’t find the Hammaconda attractive, but even if this was Fassbender it wouldn’t be appropriate. Well, might have to think on that one…;)

    • lucy2 says:

      If it’s true (which I’m doubting) then I agree it’s unprofessional. Don’t make others job any more difficult than it has to be.

    • rebecca says:

      I agree completely. It’s not hard to put on some underwear for work. It makes him seem like a jerk if he has no problem making his co-workers uncomfortable.

    • lexy says:

      I couldnt care less about seeing his wang through his pants. I am much more concerned about the whole bare arse touching all the clothes bit. All that sitting… His butt hole all over all the clothes… Disgusting. Undies are a barrier!

  11. GoldenState says:

    It makes me so happy to see pant bulges at the top of celebrity news. Yum.

  12. serena says:

    Luckily when he’s with his wife, her face distracts me more than his dong.

  13. JL says:

    Call me when it’s peeking out of those shorts! Until then, what’s the big deal. That doesn’t look all that huge to me – but then maybe it’s photoshopped there too.

  14. Maria says:

    His dick really is a thing of beauty.

    Don’t hide it Hamm!

  15. DreamyK says:

    I totally check for the bulge in every picture. It’s the adult version of Where’s Waldo :)

  16. WendyNerd says:

    I personally think his girlfriend is adorable. And she seems like a really cool chick. I’m definitely going to go see “Friends with Kids” when I get the chance.

    i don’t really see what you’re all going on about with her face. Yeah, her chin is a bit pointy, but with the way you lot are going on, you’d think she looked like Jocelyn Wildenstein or something. I think she’s quite cute.

    • superfly says:

      don’t watch it! it’s horrible, totally cringe-worthy. makes me really wonder what he sees in her. yup, that bad, but she does seem kinda freaky.

    • danni says:

      please don’t see this movie.
      huge Cliche!
      and i wonder why does she cast herself to the main part????
      ahhaaaa, because nobody else cast her.

    • sirsnarksalot says:

      I happened to love the movie, so I say go see it. It has a great cast and covers alot of topics that the 30+ set deal with.

      I think the face issue is that she probably had one of those beak type noses (see Blossom/Amy Farah Fowler) and had it fixed back when the only noses people got were the teeny weenie ones. It doesn’t fit her face now so the chin, upper lip and everything look off. Good plastic surgeons don’t make that mistake anymore. Either way, I envy her getting to cuddle up to the Hamm…

      • valleymiss says:

        Friends with Kids was merely ok. I wanted it to be better. There’s one scene toward the end where she is having an argument and starts to tear up and cry…oh god. It was literally painful to watch because she can’t move her face correctly. It was awful. I’d rather be an “ugly crier” (Jessica Alba) than a “immobilized crier.” I felt so uncomfortable watching that scene because she just couldn’t create a look of a person who’s about to cry.

        Jon Hamm is sexy as all hell, and in pap shots I enjoy looking for The Hammaconda…but I agree with the above posters. If this story is true, it’s very unprofessional of him. How many times should you/can you be asked to do something at work and just ignore it?

    • Ainsleigh says:

      I know. I don’t get the hate on his girlfriend either. She looks perfectly lovely…Oh…now I get it….. Meowwwwwww.

      The most telling photos are the ones where he’s wearing the tan pants on the street.

  17. Rosy says:

    As a member of the press, I am deeply offended that promotional materials are being edited. I want to seeeee!!!

  18. Stubbylove says:

    God bless The Hamm.

  19. Sweet Dee says:

    You guys all think it’s hilarious, but this is serious. Look what all that dong did to Jennifer Westfeldt’s face! Poor girl, she had to choose. She chose dong.

  20. Talie says:

    He’s such a throwback… he looks like he shows up these events after rolling out of bed after a nightlong bender.

  21. bea says:

    Well, there certainly are worse things that could be said about you.

    It’s the cut of those pants from the 1960s. Remember Dick Van Dyke? No pleats. They’re brutal if you’re not tall and thin. Something large in the front is going to be impossible to hide. Like with a dance costume, sometimes you’ve just go to strap it down.

  22. maxine says:

    First, Cracken Monday, now Hamm Dong Wednesday. What a great week!

  23. GiGi says:

    I’m sorry, but his rep should encourage more Hammdong talk… no one is complaining here!

    So, the other night I was up late and trolling Netflix and saw this “Friends with Kids” movie from 2011 starring Jennifer Westveldt (sp?) And I watched it just to see that cat face in action. The Hamm is in it (along with a lot of other great actors) and everyone is shot normally EXCEPT HER! Every shot of her is through a Doris Day Vaseline Lens. So ridiculous! She looks like she’s on steroids with those cutlets.

  24. Maddict says:

    I gave up hammdong for lent :-(

  25. Sumodo1 says:

    Does he “dress” to the right AND the left? That’s THE problem for the upset costumers!

  26. JC says:

    What I wouldn’t give to be a costume designer for MM and have to wrangle the Hammaconda every day.

  27. Cecada says:

    “Dickmatized” doesn’t do it justice…

    We need a whole new way of speaking to address what the HAMM DONG does to the women-folk…

  28. skuddles says:

    Oh, naughty Jon, letting the trouser snake roam freely like that. That deserves a good spanking!! ;)

  29. Annette says:

    I keeps scrolling back up to that last picture and LOLing! Why does he always look so hungover and deer in the headlamps like at these events? He’s *much* hotter onscreen.

  30. Chrissie Malcolm says:

    What? He can’t wear underwear like every other man because his manhood is so massive and cannot “breathe” in boxers/briefs? Does it have a will of its own (Oh, silly me, they all do!). Then, and I hate to have to mention it, there is the issue of hygiene … wrap it up Hamm, please!

  31. Chordy says:

    Hey, John Hamm’s rep, think of it this way. Every time the Hammaconda takes up pixel space on a website, that’s one less article about side boob or upskirt shots. Also, allowing the Hammaconda to be oogled is a step closer to balancing the subject/object disparity between the sexes. So let the Hammaconda free, John Hamm. Do it for Feminism.

  32. cruiz2 says:

    Is that a carpet burn on his knee in the first pic? IMAGINE that!!! Hamm-IT!

  33. debisis says:

    Jon Hamm is the best advertiser in the world. Give him another Emmy.

  34. debisis says:

    Ok, I agree that all actors should wear under garments out of respect for everyone there…on their own time is their business…but the thing is, I’m starting to have a complex about him packing a long slim jim. He doesn’t seem to be packin the G if you know what I mean, ladies. Could I be missing something? Plus, he looks too small and skinny in some of these pics. I can’t crush on a guy who’s smaller than me or the same size.

    One thing is for sure if he gets that tweety bird pregnant, it’s OVER. Oh and his legs look too skinny, which is why Matt McCaughnehey and are so over.

  35. debisis says:

    Please tell me that someone else is older than say 38. I am just awful.

  36. Lexi says:

    :) he’s handsome

  37. Flahoola says:

    You made a typo, that Unfortunately* should actually read Fortunately* :) hubba hubba

  38. crazycatlady says:

    I Googled John Hamm’s Johnson after hearing TMZ talk about the fact that it’s big news of late. I found a Tumblr page dedicated to it. And I’m sorry folks, but I don’t see what all the fuss is about. I hardly see anything in the slew of photos on that Tumblr, and I don’t see it here. If this is what y’all think a sizeable package is, then my ex-boyfriend is a god. Just sayin’.
