Celebrities don’t have it as easy as you and me. You see, us normal folk have options in life. We can go to the laundromat whenever we want, not when our publicist tells us the camera crews outside our house have departed, hoping to get footage of Matthew Lillard humping a payphone instead. We’re also able to choose if and when we want to wear underpants on any given day. SO RESTRAINING. People like Jon Hamm aren’t so lucky.
An AMC insider tells Confidenti@l [ED. NOTE: ugh] that during filming of the sixth season of [Mad Men] — when the ’60s-style clothing was a tight fit — Hamm was politely instructed by a staffer at the network to please wear underwear while shooting his scenes.
“This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination,” a source tells us. “Jon’s impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear.”
Our insider says that during seasons one and two, AMC’s marketing team even had to do some Photoshop magic on promotional booklets that went out to press in order to make his privates more, well, private. (Via)
/looks to see if there’s already a parody of “Free Fallin'” called “Free Ballin'”
Damn. Anyway, imagine being the guy who had to tell Emmy-nominee, notorious handsome person Jon Hamm that he can’t freeball it anymore. How does that conversation begin? Did he call it Hamm’s ham? Did he look at it while relaying the “no male camel toe” order, and Jon said, “My eyes are up here”? See, these are the important things you should be telling us, Confidenti@l. Speaking of dicks: Pete Campbell and Rory Gilmore are engaged.
Their Mad Men characters had an ill-fated affair, but off-camera, Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser are excitedly celebrating their engagement, Bledel’s rep confirms exclusively to Us Weekly. “They couldn’t be happier,” says a pal of the Gilmore Girls alum, 31, and Kartheiser, 33. (Via)
Their first dance song is “Free Ballin’.” Damn.
