Dianna Agron on Racy GQ Photo Shoot: Sorry!

at . Comments

Glee may not have aired a new episode this week, but it managed to make an assortment of headlines anyway. Just not the kind many associated with the show would like to see.

Soon after Lea Michele, Dianna Agron and Cory Monteith posed provocatively for the cover of GQ, an uproar ensued, led by the Parents Television Council, which said the spread "borders on pedophilia." Katie Couric even addressed the pictorial on the CBS Evening News last night, saying:

"These very adult photos of young women who perform in a family show just seem so un-Glee-like."

In a new blog post, Agron has now spoken out on the issue. She writes:

"If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention. And if your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry. But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?"

She goes on to say the following:

"I understand that in today’s world of advanced technology, our kids can be subject to very adult material at the click of a button. But there are parental locks, and ways to get around this. I am twenty-four years old. I have been a pretty tame and easy-going girl my whole life. Nobody is perfect, and these photos do not represent who I am.

"I am also not the girl who rolls out of bed with flawless makeup and couture clothing. I am most comfortable with my hair thrown on top of my head, in sweats, laughing with my friends. Glee is a show that represents the underdogs, which is a feeling I have embraced much of my own life, and to those viewers, the photos in GQ don’t give them that same feeling. I understand completely."

What do you think of the racy photo shoot?

The photos with Dianna are pretty tame, especially for GQ. I have to say that I'm not a huge fan of the cover. Lea's photo I think when I little overboard, I think maybe a skirt would have been nice. I happen to think that Glee IS NOT A KIDS SHOW. I don't let my sister watch it. Its for teens, young adults, and adults. There's no way that this show was meant for kids and its not fair to force that one them now. Parents...Here's some advice. Talk to your kids about content, step up instead of bitching.


dianna, you rock! you totally said everything perfectly! these parents are crazy, you all are over 18 and you make your own choices, their kids who watch the show shouldnt have this magazine anyway...


It's just stupid she had to apologize.
The are things way worse than those photos.


i totally agree u know girlfriend


I'm so sorry she's feeling so guilty that she felt she needed to clear this up. Don't buy your kid GQ and although you can't stop them from finding these pictures on the net, there are way more inappropriate stuff that are just as easy to find. These photos seem very tame compared to those.


Glee Quotes

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.


I'm engorged with venom, and triumph.
