“Glee” actress Dianna Agron has used her personal blog to issue an apology for the raunchy photos she featured in for the November issue of men’s magazine GQ.
Agron appears alongside cast mate Lea Michele, both 24, in little-to-the-imagination outfits with fellow “Glee” actor Cory Monteith placing a hand firmly on each of their buttocks. The photo shoot showed further images of the actresses in their underwear in very provocative poses.
Agron has penned a lengthy response to the uproar around the photoshoot, which parent’s groups are labeling as "borders on pedophilia."
"In the land of Madonna, Britney, Miley, Gossip Girl, other public figures and shows that have pushed the envelope and challenged the levels of comfort in their viewers and fans...we are not the first. Now, in perpetuating the type of images that evoke these kind of emotions, I am sorry…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?"
The images were shot by famously-raunchy photographer Terry Richardson, and are classic Richardson style, which borders—in some minds—on soft-porn-esque.
"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." Agron wrote. Agron’s character in the hit TV show is a teenager, and that is what has some concerned that it is displaying the wrong kind of image to her primary audience.
