Darren Criss Covers 'Out' March 2011

Darren Criss covers the March 2011 issue of Out magazine!

Here’s what the 24-year-old Glee actor had to share:

On being a straight man playing a gay character: ““I think it’s more empowering to everybody, including myself, if I’m articulate about identifying myself as a straight male playing a gay character. Ultimately, that’s more powerful for both communities.”

On the coolest parts about being on Glee: “The coolest part is not that it’s a hit show – that’s a bonus – and, of course, that I have a job. But the real cool thing is I was inadvertently raised by the gay community.”

hottest man alive….dam!!!

He is so ugly and annoying

“But the real cool thing is I was inadvertently raised by the gay community.”

What does that even mean? did he just want to put that out there? it doesn’t even fit with the question.

hot!.. Is he straight in real life?


BUTTERFACES like him should not try to be sexy. Ever.


no, he was responding about being raised in San Francisco

I liked his chest hair…

He is a straight guy who was raised by the gay community…
sure! admit it u r a straight guy who had s 3 x with gays, too!

ugly? let’s not.
darren criss makes me mess in my panties! JS!

Why is it hip for straight actors to play gay, but for gay actors its seen as not believable. But its ok for a hot straight guy to portray guy b/c then he is really acting and testing his boundaries.

finally a man with hair on his chest.
Praise Darren
