Some of McKinley High School’s most popular students may soon be getting called down to Principal Figgins’ office — that is to say, if he sees their sexy new pictorial in GQ magazine.
“Glee” stars Lea Michele and Dianna Agron appear in a scantily clad spread for the popular men’s mag, along with co-star (and a fully clothed) Cory Monteith for the upcoming November 2010 issue.
Inside the pages, the young stars dish on everything from landing their “Glee” gigs to series creator Ryan Murphy’s rules on set, including no sex amongst the co-stars in between scenes.
“Yeah, that’s implied,” Cory told the mag of Ryan’s co-star sex-free zone rule. “There’s a beautiful chemistry to this show and messing with that would be dangerous.”
Although, Lea said she doesn’t give the boss anything to worry about.
“He’s never said that to me. Because he knows I’m not hooking up with anybody in my trailer,” she quipped.
Off-screen hook-ups aside, “Glee” has recently caught a bit of flack for some racy scenes in front of the camera, including last week’s girl-on-girl kiss between cheerleaders Santana (Naya Rivera) and Brittany (Heather Morris), as well as Jacob Ben-Israel’s (Josh Sussman) simulated orgasm in the Season 2 premiere. As a result, some critics have suggested that this type of material shouldn’t be included in an 8 PM primetime family show.
As it turns out, Ryan Murphy doesn’t necessarily disagree.
“I didn’t want to do a family show,” Ryan told GQ. “I wanted to do my version of a family show.”
However, he admits that some of the material is better suited for a mature audience.
“But we try to be as responsible as we can, because we know some young people watch,” he added. “Some of the humor goes over their head, hopefully.”
And as for the steamy new photo spread, which is bound to raise a few conservative eyebrows as well, Dianna admitted it wasn’t entirely within the bounds of her comfort zone.
“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,’” she joked, referring to rumors about the former real-life roommates’ relationship. “I’ve never been shot in so little clothing.”
