The country has been reeling since news broke of the massacre that took place at an Arizona grocery store on Saturday targeting United States Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, including "Glee" stars Mark Salling and Chord Overstreet.
At a photo shoot for the Ocean Pacific clothing line in Lancaster, California on Sunday, Mark and Chord revealed their point of view on their personal safety and how the recent tragedy might affect them in the future.
"Our fans are really just very respectful and kind and I have not encountered any kind of hostility like that," said Mark. "But I don't think you have to be recognizable or not to be concerned with your safety. I mean, we all travel and we all go to airports and grocery stores and everything else... I think fear is what you don't need to do... You can't be scared 'cause you could die right now walking across the street."
Chord cited minor nuisances that he has encountered since finding fame on the hit show, saying, "Since they see [me] all the time on TV, they feel like they can just come up to me and grab [me]." But Chord agreed with Mark that gleeks are respectful for the most part.
Robert Kardashian revealed that he's more of a homebody as a result of the violence that occasionally occurs on the late-night party scene.
"There's a new club called Eden that just opened the other night in L.A. on Friday, and I was going to go and I didn't and there was a shooting right in front," said Robert. "I don't like to go out 'cause of reasons like that."
Mark and Chord have had less time to go out due to "Glee"'s heavy shooting schedule. The show returns on February 6 with a special tribute to Michael Jackson's Thriller, following the Super Bowl.
As for recent whispers that "Glee" might air a tribute episode to Justin Bieber, Mark called the gossip "rumors."
In fact, "Glee" showrunner Ryan Murphy refuted the rumors, talking to Entertainment Weekly: "Those [tributes] are reserved for artists with big catalogs," said Ryan. "Bieber comes up in episode 13 as a small plot point. Sam (Chord) sings a JB song to win Quinn's (Dianna Agron) approval."
The ladies of the OP marketing campaign: Aly Michalka, Kat Graham and Brenda Song suffered the most in the shoot, wearing next to nothing in 50 degree weather. Watch the video to find out why the girls chose to wear their bikinis in their interview with ET.
