Mr Schue isn’t gay
That’s what he said.
New interview with Elle Magazine. Pretty funny, actually. Asks him point blank about those rumours. No doubt you’ve all seen that photo of him supposedly kissing some other dude in a club? It was a fake. So he claims he’s straight, then he and the journalist bitchslap Tiffani Amber Thiessen, and then he fangirls over Salma Hayek. So why is this pinging my gaydar?
ELLE: So, Matt, you’re a musical theater star who’s been interviewed by The Advocate and much discussed on Manhunt.com, and you star in Glee, a program that’s referred to as “the gayest show on TV.” You must feel particularly proud being the first gay man to grace this page.
MATTHEW MORRISON: I’m not gay.
ELLE: I had indeed read in various places that you’re straight, but in light of the circumstantial evidence, I wasn’t sure.
MM: I grew up singing and dancing, so people have been calling me gay since fifth grade. I’ve heard everything you could possibly hear about it. But I do love gay people, so I’m not going to act like I was insulted or angry about it.
ELLE: But do you ever do anything to suppress your gayest traits? Like, on a club dance floor, will you keep a lid on your best moves in order not to look too much like Tommy Tune out there?
MM: Oh, yeah. I’ll do what I refer to as “the shoulder dance,” just, you know, move my shoulders and do a little head bobbing.
ELLE: What was the first moment you realized you were a heterosexual being?
MM: I was really sexual from an early age. My first kiss was actually with two girls at the same time. One girl would be behind the bush with me for a minute and the other girl would be timing us. Then they’d switch.
ELLE: Dirty! Who was your first sexual obsession from popular culture?
MM: Tiffani-Amber Thiessen from Saved by the Bell. I loved her.
ELLE: I heard an interview with Screech recently. He wrote a memoir that said she was easy. I think he referred to her as “Hollywood’s pass-around girl.” Who knows how reliable a source Screech is, but does hearing this make her more alluring?
MM: No. You actually just killed it for me. Thank you very much for that.
ELLE: Sorry. Now that you’ve worked on quite a bit of film and TV, has anything particularly embarrassing happened while in the proximity of a famous actress?
MM: Besides constantly having to wipe the drool from my mouth? Not really. Last week, actually, I was in New York doing a workshop for a new musical with Jessica Biel, this beautiful Argentinean actor Mía Maestro, and Salma Hayek. I really like smart women, and [Hayek] is really brilliant. We went out to lunch a couple times. We had great conversations all week, and she, like, cried when she had to say goodbye to me. It was a great romance without having any real romance.
