NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: After nearly a decade, Jon Hamm has decided to speak out about the rumors that he prefers to walk around without underwear than wear underwear after the world saw his treasure strutting down Madison Avenue in tight pants. The Emmy-winning actor has finally spoken out about a 2013 report that an AMC employee on the set of 'Mad Men' instructed Hamm to wear underwear because the public display of his private parts was causing problems for the network.

The 2013 New York Daily News report claimed that the 'Top Gun: Maverick' was politely told by a network employee to please wear underwear when filming his scenes. An insider told the paper, "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." Now, in 2022, Hamm addressed this issue when he spoke to Howard Stern on 'The Howard Stern Show' on Monday, September 19, about the production and starring role of investigative reporter Irwin 'Fletch' Fletcher in 'Confess, Fletch.' Howard got right to the point and asked the 51-year-old about the "whole penis thing."

The host asked, "Did they tell you on 'Mad Men' you must wear underwear that your penis is so large that is, in fact, interfering with the performance?" Hamm confidently replied to the question and said, "I have worn underwear every single day of my life, Howard. First of all, who doesn't wear underwear? Yeah, I've worn underwear every day of my life. With a suit? Come on. I love a comfy boxer brief, thank you very much. I like a breathable cotton. Who doesn't?"

As per the abovementioned report from back in 2013, Hamm was instructed by an AMC staffer to start wearing underwear as his manhood was causing many problems. One source told the publication that AMC's marketing team had to do some Photoshop recreational magic on promotional booklets that went out to press in order to make his private parts look private.

The source further explained, "Imagine how distracting that would be on the side of a bus or building. When the promotional pictures came back during 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." The actor was recently seen in Greg Mottola's directed 'Confess, Fletch' along with Lorenza Izzo, John Slattery, Anna Osceola, and more.
