The GQ Glee photo shoot continues to shock some… but Dianna Agron has something to say about those racy GQ Glee photos. Agron took to her blog to air her thoughts on the GQ Glee photo shoot, including the fact that those were not really the kind of pictures she wanted to do.
In her blog post, Dianna Agron starts by saying “these are solely my thoughts on the November issue of GQ and the controversy that has surrounded its release,” noting that she won’t speak for Lea Michele, Cory Monteith or Fox.
Dianna Agron writes that the GQ Glee photo shoot is not the first to have “pushed the envelope and challenged the levels of comfort in their viewers and fans,” but does apologize, saying, “If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention.”
Agron does address the fact that the sexy Glee photos were for GQ, an adult magazine, noting that there are ways to keep adult material out of your kids’ path.
Dianna Agron posts in her blog that the GQ Glee photo shoot represented “very heightened versions of our school characters. A ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’ version. At the time, it wasn’t my favorite idea, but I did not walk away.”
Why did Dianna pose for the GQ pics? In her blog she says she’s trying to live her life “with a sharpie marker approach,” saying, “you can’t erase the strokes you’ve made, but each step is much bolder and more deliberate.”
Dianna Agron wants Glee fans to know that “these photos do not represent who I am.” She is happy with sweats, messy hair, laughing with friends – a far cry from what the pictures depicted!
Overall, Agron says she’s “putting it to rest” now, noting, “I am only myself, I can only be me. These aren’t photos I am going to frame and put on my desk,” and adding that the pics are of “characters we’ve played for this crazy job.”
As for Dianna’s dream photo shoot: “I’d be in a treehouse, in a wild costume, war-paint and I’d be playing with my pet dragon.”
So, are we over the GQ Glee photo shoot controversy yet? Or does it wage on?
