Dianna Agron ‘Sorry’ For Racy GQ Spread
“If your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand… I am sorry,” Dianna wrote on her personal blog (via The Hollywood Reporter) Wednesday night. “Nobody is perfect, and these photos do not represent who I am.”
The actress who plays head cheerleader Quinn penned a lengthy response to the controversy over the racy shoot, which shows her and Lea Michele mugging in short kilts and undies with co-star Cory Monteith. While she apologizes for making Gleeks feel uncomfortable, Dianna points out that hers isn’t exactly the first seductive magazine spread in history.
She writes: “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.”
Dianna, 24, adds that GQ asked her, Lea and Corey to play “very heightened,” “‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’” versions of their Glee characters, and while it wasn’t her “favorite idea,” she admits, “I did not walk away.”
For the record, the actress wants fans to know that she prefers sweatpants to couture and her dream photo shoot would find her “in a treehouse, in a wild costume, war-paint and I’d be playing with my pet dragon.”
Now there’s a magazine spread we’d like to see!
