Darren Criss Shares the Story Behind His Racy Selfie!

Darren Criss broke the internet back when he shared a photo of himself wearing absolutely nothing and just a speedo held in front of himself to stay modest.

Now, the 30-year-old actor is sharing the story behind the picture, which he snapped on the set of The Assassination of Gianni Versace earlier this year.

Darren opened up during his visit with The Ladygang podcast.

“I was wearing this ridiculous red speedo thing and thank god it was for the show because pictures had come out, the paparazzi had caught us. We’re shooting a scene on the beach and it’s Miami. It’s fair game, we’re out in the open so there are photos of me in a scene with Max Greenfield and I’m in this red speedo and I look kind of ridiculous. We’re all kind of giggling about this on set, like, ‘Oh my god, this is getting picked up.’ And I kind of wanted to take it back for myself,” Darren said.

“At the end of that day, I was completely sunburned and was essentially the same color as the speedo and so I’m looking at myself in the mirror thinking this is too funny. So after those photos went out, I was like, ‘I have a better photo.’ So that was that,” Darren added.

Darren also said he was very proud of the caption, which “no one read.” It was, “So what’s more red? My sunburn, my speedo, or YOUR FACE??? #ACSVersace.”
