Glee Star Responds To Ptc's Condemnation Of Gq Spread

Dianna Agron, a co-star of Fox's Glee, has responded to criticism by the conservative media watchdog Parents Television Council of a sexy photo spread in GQ magazine featuring her and fellow co-stars Lea Michele and Cory Monteith. In a statement on Tuesday, PTC President Tim Winter said, "It is disturbing that GQ, which is explicitly written for adult men, is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on ' Glee in this way. It borders on pedophilia." The PTC also condemned the photos as "near pornographic." On her blog, Agron, who said that she was speaking only for herself and not the other Glee cast members appearing in the photo spread, insisted, "Nobody is perfect, and these photos do not represent who I am." She said that the magazine's proposal that the Glee actors "play very heightened versions of our school characters" was not "my favorite idea, but I did not walk away." She offered a qualified apology to those who may have been offended. "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?"
