One of the stars of the hit AMC drama series “Mad Men” has apparently created a distraction by going without underwear on the set.
The Huffington Post reports: “Jon Hamm’s not-so-private parts are reportedly causing quite the stir on the ‘Mad Men’ set.” Citing a report by the New York Daily News, Huff Post says the actor was “kindly instructed by a staffer to please wear underwear while shooting his scenes.”
The report cites a source saying: “This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination. Jon’s impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear.”
The piece adds that during the show’s first two seasons, “The marketing team had to Photoshop a lot of the promotional posters, billboards and ad campaigns considering Hamm’s ‘impressive anatomy’ was making an impressive showing.”
The source is quoted as saying: “His privates are the inside joke,” and adds that the actor “knows what he’s got.”
A rep for Hamm is less than amused by the report. “It is ridiculous and not really funny at all,” the rep reportedly told the Daily News. “I’d appreciate you taking the high road and not resorting to something childish like this that’s been blogged about 1,000 times.”
