When he’s not having fever dreams about his students, Glee‘s Matthew Morrison is being mobbed by real-life high school students and enjoying his fame. The 32 year-old visits his old high school with Details where he is gushed over by the teachers and students.
You’d think he’d be used to this now, but he doesn’t like the idea of being a “sex object.”
“I’m not comfortable with the idea of my sex appeal, but I know in my job I have to use it. I wish I could say I got to this point in my career based on my talent, but I don’t think that’s true.”
So humble, Matt!
After spending years on Broadway, Matthew finally hit it big landing the role of Spanish teacher Will Schuester on Glee. “Matt’s the star of the show,” says show creator Ryan Murphy. “The show rests on his shoulders—everything revolves around him.” Um, don’t tell Lea Michele that. Speaking of whom, the interviewer seemed put off by Michele, detailing how she tried to get his attention while he was on set:
“Everyone’s looking over their lines now, rehearsing dance steps— except Lea Michele, who keeps staring at me as I observe Morrison. Every time I look up, I catch her looking my way. It seems she knows I’m a reporter and wants my attention.
When Morrison brings over a laptop to show me a movie treatment he’s been working on, Michele crosses the set, stands next to me, and starts talking to the show’s publicist. “I have a lot of interviews to do,” she says. “There’s that AIDS blast and…” She turns to look at me. “Oh, hi.”
