Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm has a message for all the people talking about his crotch: It's rude!

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, the Mad Men star responds to the paparazzi shots (or PhotoShops) pointing out his nether regions. Just last week, it was reported that a show staffer had to tell him to wear underwear due to the tight nature of the '60s-era wardrobe.

"Most of it's tongue-in-cheek, but it is a little rude," he tells the magazine. "It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have — a prurience. They're called 'privates' for a reason. I'm wearing pants, for f---'s sake. Lay off."

But at least Hamm was able to see the silver lining. "Whatever," he says, "I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite."

Mad Men returns on Sunday, April 7 at 9/8c on AMC.
