While Puck has been missing for the last few episodes of Glee, that doesn't mean his portrayer isn't up with what's going down over at McKinley.

Mark Salling was doing a radio interview this morning when he was asked to comment on the now controversial GQ, Terry Richardson photos featuring his Glee co-stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Dianna Agron. He didn't seem to phased by them. He explained:

"Personally, I think it's not a big deal. Lea is 23 years old and has every right to do that. I mean, come on! We're obviously not in high school. It's tongue-in-cheek that we're in high school. People are starving, [Dallas] Cowboys are losing — there's more important things to worry about in the world."

He would be worried about football.

But he's right, there are a lot of more important things to worry about in the world. Like how the hell are we supposed to make it through the next six days? We wants us some Rocky Horror Glee NOW!

    I don't think the spread is a big deal BUT I see why parents are upset. THINK ABOUT IT. Although these are adults playing kids…THEY ARE PLAYING KIDS. Then you have people playing kids pose provacatively in a SCHOOL SETTING. Its common sense. If they want to do a spicy spread. Fine. Do it in a different setting. But when you post in a high school cheerleader uniform and "sucking" on a lolipop at a LOCKER, that's obviously attracting the attention of PEDOPHILES. Its their fantasy. THAT'S the issue.

    "NOT A BIG DEAL?"
    wtf, these girl are only twenty-four years old. They're simple children. Don't you know that the human brain only completes it's maturity at age 23. OMG,WTF. LMFAO: Get a life.

    Sorry Mark, but some of us think that the sexual objectification of young girls is a big deal. I know they are in their 20's, but they are still portraying young girls.

    He looks pretty fug in this picture, hate to say it.

    he's gross

    PROBLEM IS EVERYONE KEEPS BRINGING IT UP. If young kids are looking at the spread, parents should be asking, WHERE DID YOU GET IT? Besides, nothing is showing. and if young kids are staring at the pictures, your kids are not that young and maybe it is time to start talking about sex with them. anyhoo, far safer looking at pictures than going out and doing it.

    Glee actors play teenagers and the show is marketed to teenagers. When the actors model in sexy poses, despite their real age, they are promoting teen sexuality and GQ knows exactly that. We need to stop selling sex to kids.

    Wow this 30 y/o playing a 16 y/o is really showing his age. Give me a break.

    Perez, PLEASE work on your grammar. It's "too fazed", not "to phased"

    Re: Chloe1234 – that's so dumb.. so because they play teens on tv.. for the rest of their lives they can't do mature things.. they got to act like good little so called teens? you dont really think much do you? wtf are kids doing with a GQ magazine cause that shit isn't for kids.. for the billionth time.. it is up to the parents to censor their kids not the actors.. that's not their job..

    And nonchalant attitudes like this are what lead to some of the bigger problems we have in this country. Selling sex on a show that may not be targeted towards kids but is certainly beloved by them gives the wrong message, and people who say 'oh big deal' are perpetuating this message. the images of women as sexual objects of desire are becoming younger and younger. five year olds should not know what the word sexy means much less try to emulate it but it's getting harder and harder to keep these things away from kids. these are 20-something actors - yes. But GQ is not one of those magazines wrapped in plastic at the gas station. hell, dad probably has a subscription and little suzy picks it up one day and says "ooh I want to dress like Rachel!' i think it would be smart for the other 'stars' of glee (where ya been btw puck?) to steer clear of skankville and realize the people love their CHARACTERS and the premise of the show, not necessarily the actors.

    it wouldnt be bad if they were not in the school setting etc portraying their characters, its a pedo dream and their playing off of that
    besides its sexist
    hey girls in order to be important or get famous you gotta be a slut but guys you can be fug and awkward not to mention fully clothed



  14. 14

    holy shit he looks disgusting in this picture



  15. 15

    New viewership brought on from the GQ photo spread should allow for the advertisers of Viagara, Geritol for Men, Just Right for Men Hair Colour and Thailand get aways and who could not resist a request to come see Pee Wee's Playhouse to bring in some more cash to the networks……whoo to the who as there is so much money to be made.

    I agree with gorgeous_chik7 completely. You cannot have it both ways. I too agree had they NOT used the school setting no one would have batted an eye. I care about starving people, donated to Haiti relief among other organizations. But I also care about my 13-year old daughter who looks up to Lea Michele. Might I also address the redundant point I hear from everyone? We didn't buy the magazine, it's all over tv and by the time you can turn the channel there is already an eyeful to be had. So it's not that simple. We should all have each others backs and try to promote a healthy image for young girls.

    Absolutely not a big deal. Who cares if they portray high school kids. Parents that don't want their kids to see these photos should quit whining about it and make sure they stash their GQ.

    And btw, your kids (boy or girl) have already seen a playboy.

    Here's something to think about…if you don't want your kids looking at this stuff, don't let them. And seriously, I'm pretty sure that they've seen worse than a girl in her bra posing suggestively. If not, it's your fault for letting them look at the pictures and you should probably turn on your Parental Controls on your computer. Don't let them watch Glee if it's that big of a deal. But all kids grow up and looking at a girl in her underwear with her bra showing is no different than going to WalMart and seeing someone posing on the bra and underwear packages.

    This whole thing is blown way out of proportion. Why aren't these same parents upset about a teen pregnancy being portrayed on the show? Or the two cheerleaders rolling around on the bed together? Or the premature ejaculation? People need to get lives and quit making a big deal out of nothing.

    Re: monrOH – Hmm your first and only post - need I draw a conclusion…are you the PR dork doing all these one posts…seriously your analogy to this is Walmart - well for starters the maneqins are not propped up in their panties with their legs spread wide enough to drive a truck through, sucking on a lollipop, twirling their hair with that come hither look, looking like a baboon in heat ready and appearing ready to suck on your body parts - does she appear desparate - hell yah!

    I must say people are getting their nickers in a twist for absolutely no reason.

    They all look smoking hot.

    If you're a parent, teach your kids your morals instead of relying on the media to do it for you.
