Damn, Lea Michele gets around, it seems. While she’s best known for her totally real and not at all played up for the press relationship with Glee co-star Cory Monteith, it seems she was also involved with another castmate prior: Mr. Schue himself, Matthew Morrison. She talked about the relationship in her new biography, Brunette Ambition (gag me):
“When we shot the pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, and Chris Colfer for the first time. I had worked on Broadway with Jenna Ushkowitz and Matthew Morrison before. Matt had been a friend of mine for years, and in fact we’d actually dated back in the day for a Broadway beat.”
Ugh, how is it that a single paragraph can sound so obnoxious? “A Broadway beat”? Who talks like that? I guess Broadway stars? She’s the worst.
Anyhow, not surprised these two dated, though I’m surprised they could both fit in one room given the size of their gigantic heads. The amount of ego between the two of them is unparalleled.
