'Glee's' Jonathan Groff Laughs Off Naked Photo Frenzy
Glee star Jonathan Groff has shrugged off the fan frenzy generated by his first full-frontal nude scene, insisting he never meant to cause a commotion by stripping off.
The Broadway star revealed all in a brief scene for Twelve Thirty, a drama he shot a few years ago but which was only released on DVD earlier this month.
Fans were quick to post stills from the film online and the images then spread to dozens of blogs, but Groff admits he's not too bothered by the images.
He explains, "I did that movie a couple years ago. I really loved doing that movie, and Jeff Lipsky, our director, had done this thing, Flannel Pajamas, which had some nudity in it as well, and 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, so, I don't know, it's just a movie I did!
"I don't think about how it'll end up on the Internet. I just do my work and whatever happens, happens. I love that you're so concerned about me... I appreciate your concern."
