'Glee' Cast Strips for Naughty 'GQ' Photo Shoot



In the November issue of GQ, two Glee stars abandon their squeaky-clean image for something more along the lines of the ultimate school girl fantasy.

Lea Michele and Dianna Agron posed in various stages of undress for a sexy photo shoot with Cory Monteith. It's a racy move that some fans -- including this writer -- are deeming entirely inappropriate not to mention disappointing if only because ...

Where are the half-naked male Glee stars?

Instead, we get a fully clothed Monteith (I'm talking multiple layers including pea coat) playing drums and sitting at a desk. He -- along with Matthew Morrison and Mark Salling (and whomever else I'm forgetting) -- is just as ridiculously attractive as Michele and Agron. Why should fans of the male stars be so deprived?

Sexist jokes aside (and, yes, I know that GQ is a men's magazine), some critics wondered why the cast was so willing to shed their family-friendly image. Even the stars themselves were surprised by the raciness of the photos. Argon, in particular, was uncomfortable with the shoot. She said:

When it was just Lea and me, I was like "We're in skimpy clothes, we're up against each other." This is feeding those rumors ... I've never been shot in so little clothing.

And, even Michele admitted to being a little camera shy, saying: "I don't know how they got me to do half the stuff I did."

Somehow she found a way to get over it.

In the accompanying article, the writer discusses why it is that Glee is the most popular comedy on television and suggests that the success of the show has something to do with it being "anti-gender stereotyping." It's curious, then, as to why the photo shoot would be the exact opposite.

You're completely right.  Even before I clicked into the rest of your article, I knew that there was no boy nudity.  =[

This has got to be the most ridiculous photo shoot... Why go for something that low? Makes me not even want to watch Glee and that is my # 1 show... They are really distasteful in this magazine!

Is it just me or does that Dianna girl look uncomfortable in almost every picture she's in?

I think Cosmo should do a half naked spread of just the guys... It's only fair...

Wow, Lea's a natural at playing "naughty college girls."

Jess Hurst

I second the idea of Cosmo having the guys scantily clad. Shirtless Mr. Schu? Ohh yeah!

WOW!!! Aren't these supposed to be high school students??? Ridiculous!! Tasteless and vulgar are not really adjectives that I ever thought I would be attaching to one of my favorite casts of characters!!
