Radio France Head Sorry
for Erotic Photo

The 60-year-old, gay head of Radio France has apologized for appearing in an erotic pose, shirtless and wearing a wrestler's mask, for a charity calendar raising money for AIDS activism.

The 60-year-old, gay head of Radio France has apologized for appearing in an erotic pose, shirtless and wearing a wrestler's mask, for a charity calendar raising money for AIDS activism.

Jean-Paul Cluzel showed his heavily tattooed body in a provocative photo to benefit gay and AIDS activist group ACT UP. The photo is to appear in a 2009 calendar.

But now Cluzel is apologizing for appearing in the calendar -- a number of high-ranking officials have reportedly taken issue with the photo, including French president Nicolas Sarkozy.

"I made an error of judgment and apologize to any colleagues at Radio France that were offended by it," Cluzel told newspaper Le Figaro in an interview published Wednesday.aEUR""Friends of mine suggested I pose for a calendar about the diverse range of people with tattoos, the profits of which would go to the fight against AIDS.aEUR"aEUR"I didn't want to appear in my capacity as head of Radio France, so I posed in a colored cloth mask."

He says ACT UP is responsible for revealing his name and job title to the press.
