The multitalented star of the hit show puts the rumors to rest.

Glee’s hottest teacher Matthew Morrison may be known as a song-and-dance man, but don’t make assumptions about his sexual orientation.
Elle magazine’s Andrew Goldman did exactly that when he started his interview by saying to Matthew, “You must feel particularly proud being the first gay man to grace this page.”
“I’m not gay,” Matthew told Elle in an interview published last week. “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.”
The Elle reporter kept pushing the issue, asking if he tries to “suppress [his] gayest traits,” like dancing, for example. He also asks when Matthew realized he was “a heterosexual being.” Matthew’s answer was rather shocking.
“I was really sexual from an early age. My first kiss was actually with two girls at the same time,” Matthew said. “One girl would be behind the bush with me for a minute and the other girl would be timing us. Then they’d switch.”
