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.”

'American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace' Primer: Everything to Know About Season 2

December 21, 2017

After an award-winning debut season, FX's American Crime Story anthology will turn its lens to another major 1990s event: the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace in front of his Miami Beach mansion in 1997. The Assassination of Gianni Versace will follow the events leading up to the 50-year-old’s death through the eyes of the designer (played by Edgar Ramirez), his sister, Donatella Versace (Penelope Cruz), his partner, Antonio D'Amico (Ricky Martin) and the 27-year-old serial killer who shot him, Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss).

Ahead of the show’s Jan. 17 debut, here’s everything to know about the second season of Ryan Murphy’s award-winning series.

What Happened

On the morning of July 15, 1997, the fashion designer had just returned from a morning walk when he was shot and killed by Andrew Cunanan, a con artist serial killer who had gone on a cross-country killing spree. The San Diego native had murdered two acquaintances in the San Diego gay community, a Chicago real estate developer, and a New Jersey man whose car he stole. The four other slayings took place between April 27 and May 9, and Cunanan was on the run — but managed to elude authorities until eight days after Versace’s murder, when he killed himself on a Miami houseboat just blocks from Versace’s villa.

The Source Material

Much like season one’s People vs. O.J. Simpson was inspired by L.A. Times journalist Jeffrey Toobin’s book about the trial, The Run of His Life, The Assassination of Gianni Versace pulls from Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth’s book about the murder, Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History. According to creator Murphy, the second season will delve into Cunanan’s mind and cover the events leading up to Versace’s death. The season will touch on the four other murders, as well as Cunanan’s life in the San Diego gay community, the homophobia present in the culture at the time, and even the ‘90s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell military policy.“We’re trying to talk about a crime within a social idea,” he told reporters during the summer. “Versace, who was [Andrew Cunanan’s] last victim, did not have to die. One of the reasons [Cunanan] was able to make his way across the country and pick off these victims, many of whom were gay, was because of homophobia at the time.”

In the upcoming television anthology, Glee star Darren Criss will portray Cunanan. “At the end of the day, if you think of the worst person that you know, that’s done the worst things ever, you have more in common with them than not,” Criss said of playing Cunanan in an interview with radio personality Elvis Duran. “The fact is, those differences are big, but they’re small in number … So, what’s kind of been a joy for me is to find as many redeeming things as possible in someone that you fathom as something so horrible and to really get the audience to ask themselves, ‘At what point could this have been me?”
