Sexy 'Glee' pictures: Parents Television Council slams photos, GQ responds

October 20, 2010 |  2:27 pm

Glee-parents-television-coucnil While the steamy new cover of GQ featuring the stars of "Glee" may have titillated you Tuesday, there's one group that's not in harmony with the mag's choices.

The Parents Television Council blasted the images of Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Dianna Agron as bordering on "pedophilia." 

"It is disturbing that GQ, which is explicitly written for adult men, is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on 'Glee' in this way," the group's president, Tim Winter, said in a statement Wednesday.

GQ Editor in Chief Jim Nelson begs to differ.

"The Parents Television Council must not be watching much TV these days and should learn to divide reality from fantasy," Nelson told The Ministry through a rep, "as often happens in Hollywood, these kids are in their 20s. Cory Monteith's almost 30! I think they're old enough to do what they want."

The photos, depicting various scenarios in a high school, featured the cast members posed together and individually, with Agron and Michele styled in skimpy looks. It was shot by Terry Richardson.
