“They’re called privates for a reason. I’m wearing pants, for fuck’s sake,” he grumbled to Rolling Stone. “When people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my cock, I feel like that wasn’t part of the deal.”
What makes Hamm different from, say, Anne Hathaway, who had to weather discussion about the appearance of her nipples in her Academy Awards dress, is that Hamm isn’t used to being objectified. He has outrage left to burn, rather than being exhausted by endless appearance-based prying and insane body standards.
I still love Jon Hamm, but yeah, for women it kind of is part of the deal.
Another thing that occurs to me is that people who like to speculate on Hamm’s ham still have respect for him as an actor. It’s like, yeah he’s talented and awesome and WHOA, COCK!!!
Whereas for women, focus on their body parts completely obliterates any regard for their talent - Scarlett Johansson vs the ‘rabbit food question’, for instance.
