Despite spending several years denying the rumors, Lea Michele (Rachel Berry) recently admitted that she did date Glee co-star Matthew Morrison (Mr. Schue) back in the day.
According to the New York Daily News, Michele (27) opened up about her relationship with Morrison (35) in her new book Brunette Ambition, though any romance between the two seems to have occurred before they were cast in the hit Fox show.
“When we shot the pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley and Chris Colfer for the first time,” Michele says in her memoir. “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.”
During Glee’s early days, many speculated that the two actors were seeing each other behind the scenes. When asked about tabloid rumors by Parade back in 2010, Morrison said, “There’s the one about Lea [Michele] and myself, and we were literally on set and I got a call from my publicist, and she got a call a minute later and we looked at each other like, ‘What the f–?’ It’s so laughable.”
