Dianna Agron, who posed for GQ’s controversial photo shoot, is pointing out that she and costars Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are “not the first” celebrities to get scantily clad for a magazine spread.
“Other public figures and shows … have pushed the envelope and challenged the levels of comfort in their viewers and fans,” Agron, 24, wrote on her blog.
Still, the actress, who plays Quinn on Fox’s hit show, wants to apologize. “In perpetuating the type of images that evoke these kind of emotions, I am sorry,” she wrote. “If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention.”
