Rolling Stone Gets Up Close and Personal With Mad Men

The new issue of Rolling Stone magazine features our favorite Mad Men characters.

Peggy, Betty, Don and Joan are all super glamourous on the cover, which has been photoshopped to the point where some limbs are missing and legs are deformed, but hey, as long as there's a great article on our favorite show, we're game.

In regards to the the hit AMC show, creator Matthew Weiner tells the magazine: “The big question the show is trying to answer through Don has to do with identity,” Weiner says. “Who am I? — It’s only the biggest theme in all of Western literature.”

“You have to be mentally acute for a significant period of time,” Jon Hamm adds, “and that becomes pretty draining.”

He adds about his real life, “I fly very low on the radar. Mark Twain said it: ‘I’d rather say nothing and be thought an idiot than open my mouth and remove all doubt.’ Another Missouri boy, Mark Twain. The petulant, sh–ty movie-star mentality - that burns out pretty quick.”

Mad Men picked up two Emmys on Sunday, one for Outstanding Drama and the other for Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series, but someone who doesn't deserve an award is the person who photoshopped this cover shot.

January Jones' right leg is crooked and her left hand is missing, Elisabeth Moss' bust was expanded while her waist was shrunk down, Jon's right leg is missing. Christina Hendricks is the only one who isn't semi deformed from photoshop in the picture. And yes, those really are the size of her boobs!
