When even Katie Couric is complaining about your highly publicized sexualized photo shoot because her kids watch the show, you know there's a problem:
Speaking only for herself, actress Dianna Agron said she's sorry about some aspects of GQ's recent racy "Glee" spread.It's an increasingly growing phenonemon in Hollyweird: Girls Gone Wild wannabee porn stars with no morals or values posing as "professional actresses".
"If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention," Agron wrote on her Tumblr blog, noting that "Glee" is not the first pop phenomenon to push this particular envelope.
"And if your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry," she said. "But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?"
Agron, whose cheerleader character, Quinn, closed out the first season by giving birth in scenes intercut with a group performance of "Bohemian Rhapsody," admitted that the show's rooting-for-the-underdog sensibility wasn't echoed in the GQ photos and noted that although the concept of the shoot wasn't her favorite idea, she "didn't walk away."
The Parents Television Council, in a statement from president Tim Winter, criticized the cover and spread Wednesday for hypersexualizing actresses who play high-school age students, saying the shoot with a high school backdrop "borders on pedophilia."
