Lea Michele Reveals She Dated ‘Glee’ Costar Matthew Morrison
Lea Michele has revealed in her new book ‘Brunette Ambition’ that she briefly dated her ‘Glee’ costar Matthew Morrison, despite previously denying there was any romantic connection there.
The description of the 27-year-old’s new book claims it is “part memoir, part how-to and part style-guide.” Apparently it’s part confession, too. She revealed that her and Matthew, 35, did date, though it was before their time sharing a TV set.
The actress goes into detail on their short-lived romance in a section of her book dedicated to landing the role of Rachel Berry on ‘Glee.’ According to Us Weekly, Lea wrote, “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.”
She added, “Matt had been a friend of mine for years, and in fact we’d actually dated back in the day for a Broadway beat.”
Gleeks might be taken aback by the news, since both Matthew and Lea have adamantly denied any amorous history between the two.
The ‘On My Way’ singer previously told Hollywood.com, per Us Weekly, that she had “known Matt for years.”
“He’s been a friend of mine from New York,” she said. “People are going to make things up. I think it’s just because we really are so close.”
