“Glee” actress Dianna Agron has apologized for any offense caused to young fans by a racy photo shoot for men’s magazine GQ, saying the controversial pictures “do not represent who I am.”

Agron, 24, who plays high school cheerleader Quinn in the hit TV musical comedy, said in a lengthy message on her blog that, “If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention.”

The GQ photo shoot featuring Agron and “Glee” actress Lea Michele (Rachel) in high heels and scanty underwear in a high-school setting, was attacked by a U.S. parents group and greeted with dismay by several TV writers and critics. Actor Cory Monteith (Finn) also took part.

“In perpetuating the type of images that evoke these kind of emotions, I am sorry,” Agron wrote. “And if your 8-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?”

“Glee” is watched by more than 13 million Americans weekly.
