Yes, Jon Hamm is well aware of those rumours about his penis.

The Mad Men star's manhood became a hot topic on the internet a few years ago when some revealing pap shots were published online.

But the 43-year-old, who is pictured on the cover of the 2016 GQ Men of the Year issue, told the magazine it's not a big deal.

"It was a topic of fascination for other people - certainly not me," Hamm said to GQ, "By the way, as rumours go - not the worst."

But the Emmy award winning actor hasn't always given such playful answers when asked about his package.

Back in 2013 Hamm told Rolling Stone that he found the genital speculation "rude".

"Most of it's tongue-in-cheek," Hamm said. "But it is a little rude."

"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**k's sake. Lay off.

"I mean, it's not like I'm a f**king lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world. But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my c**k, I feel like that wasn't part of the deal ... But whatever. I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite."

Hamm was also unimpressed when the topic came up in a 2014 interview with Men's Fitness magazine.

"Would you want people walking up to you and pointing at your d**k?" he said at the time.


"I can't believe I'm still talking about this. But I've worn underwear every day of my life and the fact that I'm painted as this exhibitionist is a little annoying.

"Being someone who people want to photograph, you have to open yourself up to the positive and negative. It is what it is. If I get mad at it I'll look like a douchebag. But it's silly."
