Darren Criss (Or His Chest, At Least) Is Out! Both Literally and Figuratively

By  | 

We interrupt your regularly scheduled Grammy recapping for a very important message — Darren Criss shirtless. The gleek’s got this hot new photo spread and interview with Out magazine, but let’s be real here. With pics this hot, we don’t really care what the guy’s gotta say.

PHOTOS: Darren and his Glee co-stars do the Grammys!

But if you’re less shallow than us (sorry!), you might care what Darren Criss spoke to the mag about:

On his character, Blaine: “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 being part of 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.”

Now that we got that out of the way, onto the hot pics you go! Click below for closeups. You know you wanna.
