Glee’s Jonathon Groff is the latest star to have a “before they were famous” photo come back to haunt them. But in this case, he has laughed off the fuss surrounding the full frontal nude shot which recently surfaced on the internet. (Un)fortunately, all the ones I could find were censored!
Groff, who played Jess St James in the first season of Glee, said he never meant to cause a fuss by stripping off.
His brief moment of on-screen full frontal nudity came in a scene for Twelve Thirty, a drama he shot a few years ago. All the fuss now is because it was only released on DVD earlier this month.
Fans quickly posted stills from the film online and the images then spread to dozens of blogs, but Groff admitted he doesn’t really care about the images. He said he loved dong the movie.
“The thing about the nudity in that movie that he was trying to capture in our movie was the reality of it, and not trying to hide it or cut away when people would normally be naked,” he justified the nudity.
He said when he did it, he did not think about the nude images showing up on the internet.
“I just do my work and whatever happens, happens.”
He thinks it’s sweet fans are concerned about what the nude shots will do for his image, but he is not worried about it himself.
