Is this worth discussing anymore, or have we beat that horse to death already? Dianna Agron — the blonde one on “Glee” — also seems like she may be the one with a decent head on her shoulders, coming out the day after the GQ photo spread to say that “it wasn’t her favorite idea.” Even in light of the Parent Television Council’s statement to the effect that the photos were “borderline pedophilia,” Agron didn’t have to say that. She could’ve owned it, and converted it into a juicy role as a horror movie virgin. But she didn’t; she didn’t exactly say she was ashamed of the photo shoot, but she certainly suggested that it wasn’t something she was enthusiastic about doing, and that she might be more reticent in the future.
As she wrote on her Tumblr:
For GQ, they asked us to play very heightened versions of our school characters. A ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’ version. At the time, it wasn’t my favorite idea, but I did not walk away. I must say, I am trying to live my life with a sharpie marker approach. You can’t erase the strokes you’ve made, but each step is much bolder and more deliberate. I’m moving forward from this one, and after today, putting it to rest. I am only myself, I can only be me. These aren’t photos I am going to frame and put on my desk, but hey, nor are any of the photos I take for magazines. Those are all characters we’ve played for this crazy job, one that I love and am so fortunate to have, each and every day. If you asked me for my dream photo shoot, I’d be in a treehouse, in a wild costume, war-paint and I’d be playing with my pet dragon. Until then…..
And she really loves Christopher Walken, so for you, Dianna Agron, I will no longer refer to you as the blonde on from that sing-y show, and out of respect for your discomfort (which you can kind of detect in the header photo), I won’t repost one of the “borderline pedophilia” images here.
