Is Matthew Morrison Gay? Glee Star Reacts to Rumors
He might not play a gay character on Glee, but that hasn’t stopped actor Matthew Morrison (Mr. Schue) from encountering multiple rumors that he might be gay. (Because all men who sing, dance, and dress in a stylish manner must be romantically attracted to other men? Right. That’s logical....)
“I know my own truth. I'm in a great relationship with a woman,” Matt recently told the Huffington Post. “Maybe before it used to bother me. Then I was like, ‘This is so stupid that this bothers me. Some of my best friends in the world are gay, and if this is bothering me, then that means I have an issue with that.’”
Matt has been dating model/singer/songwriter Renée Puente for over 2 1/2 years. But if we’re really get nitpicky about wording, he never explicitly says that he’s straight. His “I know my own truth” statement has us wondering: Is it possible that he might be bisexual? Possible, yes. But nowhere near confirmed.
More likely, the Glee star just wants to keep the specifics of his personal life private. He’s always been supportive of the LGBT community, so Matt likely sees no need to go overboard making sure everyone in the world knows he’s straight.
“I've very proud of my role in the [LGBT] community,” he says. “So say what you will.”
