Matthew Morrison doesn't mind being the gayest straight man you know. The year-old actor recently called being a member of a gay boy band in the film Marci X the "gayest thing" he's done in his career. His part on the musical-comedy hybrid follows years of Broadway work on shows like Hairspray and The Light in the Piazza, which earned him a Tony nomination. Now, after becoming a big deal and an even bigger teacher crush, Morrison ventures out on his own with a solo debut and summer tour.
We spoke recently with the man behind Mr. Schuester, chatting about some racy photos involving a gay twin and his "chicken," the Glee girl he'd date, and the importance of the show's father-son relationship. Windy City Times: Because of your musical-theater work and Glee role, do people often think you're gay? Matthew Morrison: I've been singing and dancing since I've been in fifth grade so I've gotten that quite a bit in my life. Windy City Times: Being one of few straight guys in theater, how did you use that to your advantage when it came to the ladies?
Matthew Morrison: The odds for me were definitely in my favor, being surrounded by beautiful female dancers and being the person that they could actually, you know, be with. Laughs So it was a great time in my life. I really took advantage of it for a while in my younger days on Broadway, but aside from all that bullshit, I love being on the gayest show on TV.
It doesn't bother me; I wear it as a badge of honor to be accepted and loved in that community. Windy City Times: There are several steamy pics of you on the Internet, including ones of you in polka-dot underwear with a plushy little poof on the private. Matthew Morrison: Yeah, that's my chicken. And if I knew at the time how much flack I would get for those photos I probably would've never done it, but it raised a lot of money that night for AIDS. Matthew Morrison: That's not me. It looks very much like me. Windy City Times: It does, indeed.
Your doppelganger? Matthew Morrison: Yeah, I know. Thank you for making out with Anderson Cooper's boyfriend, whomever you are. Windy City Times: Do rumors bother you? Matthew Morrison: They used to, but it happens so much now that you have to shut it off. I know my own truth, and that's what you have to live with. Windy City Times: Which Glee girl would you have dated in high school? Matthew Morrison: I would've been the Quinn guy.
I actually pretty much did date Quinn in high school. I dated the homecoming queen and she was very religious, and I went to church with her all the time. Windy City Times: Was your girlfriend in the celibacy club, too? Matthew Morrison: Uh, well, we weren't having sex, so yes. Sex on a roof. Windy City Times: Tell me how the song came about. This was in New York City, where there could be 1, people watching you on top of the roof, but we didn't care. A lot of people think that song is just about having sex on a roof, but for me it was being young and in New York and in love.
If the year-old version of myself would've known I would've had a moment like that in my life, I would've been very happy. There's a line that references Lover's Lane. What's the last thing you bought from there? Matthew Morrison: Bought from Lover's Lane? Is that a store? Windy City Times: Oh, yeah. Lover's Lane is a sex shop. Matthew Morrison: [Laughs] Ohh, no! Oh my God. That's crazy. I didn't even know that. I wrote it as, in the '50s you go to lovers' lane, kind of like going to a lookout mountain in your car and making out and stuff. Windy City Times: Oops.
Guess it has two meanings now. I'm glad I know that little tidbit of knowledge. Windy City Times: You know, public sex might be trickier for you now. Who cares! I mean, they're not kids, they're all in their 20s, but I really got to live out my 20s in New York and do whatever I wanted and not be in the public eye, and now I'm such a homebody that I don't really have any problem with that anymore. I feel lucky that I really got to experience my life like that. Windy City Times: Glee has tackled important issues like gay bullying, drinking, teen sex and so on.
Which theme are you most proud of? Matthew Morrison: I absolutely love the relationship between Kurt and his father. It's so beautiful and it's something that really needs to be seen. I thought that was so well handled. Straight guys who watch the show now and do have kids who might be gay, I think they'll be more equipped to handle that. Windy City Times: Did you know any Kurts in school? Matthew Morrison: Oh yeah, for sure. There were a lot of Kurts. I mean, I went to a performing arts high school.
I had a college roommate, and I was the first person he came out to. I went to NYU and we lived in this dorm; there were five of us living together and one of them came out to me and just kind of felt comfortable. And I've always been very open and accepting of that because I know how hard that is, and I'm a good listener.
To this day, there are a lot of Kurts in my life. Windy City Times: Some critics have been harsh on the second season of Glee. How do you feel about that? Matthew Morrison: I love this season. There are always going to be naysayers out there, but it's hard to follow what we did the first season. I actually thought we were going to be in trouble, but this season has been really strong. Matthew Morrison: No, no. She's very committed to her job and she's a very talented girl, and I think sometimes that gets misconstrued.
Windy City Times: Have you ever been hot for teacher? Matthew Morrison: For sure. I can't think of her name, but she was a Spanish teacher. I don't know if it had something to do with the language, but that's kind of hot. It actually took a while to pick which ones, but I knew I wanted to mash two together. I was thinking "Tiny Dancer. They don't when you think about it, but it turned out to be this epic seven-minute song. He was just so game for anything and such a pleasure to work with. He's such a student of music, and every Tuesday he buys every new artist who comes out. He knows what he's doing, and it was just cool to be in [the studio] with him.
Windy City Times: Will you bring your Glee raps to the album? Matthew Morrison: No, no, no. I try to get far away from Glee on this album. Coming from Glee, I thought it was important that I write a lot of my own material. I didn't want to do just covers, because that would've been very Glee-esque, and to be taken seriously as an artist I had to write my own songs.
Windy City Times: Tell me about the tour. Matthew Morrison: I'm going on a world tour with my album, and I'm really looking forward to it. There's no better way to see the world then to go out and perform and sing. Now that you're solo, how does it compare? It was so manufactured and so cheesy and, as a performer, when you're on stage and you're embarrassed to be up there, you know you're doing the wrong thing. It was a good experience in that sense. Matthew Morrison: Who's she? Matthew Morrison: She's actually my best friend on the show. I'm the closest to her out of everyone.
We just have an amazing relationship. I love her to death. I love her wife. And she's the kindest woman you'll ever meet.Matthew morrison sex
