When asked about Naya’s secret wedding Chris revealed, “I didn’t know! I was very happy for her… I think she’s very happy.”
Calling Naya and Ryan “a cute couple”, Chris went on to say that he did send well-wishes to his co-star once he verified that reports of her getting hitched were really true. “I said, ‘Congratulations! That’s great,’” he explained. “I didn’t know it was real at first, so I wasn’t sure if I should congratulate because you never know what’s real anymore.”
Chris may have been in the dark about Naya’s nuptials, but is he acquainted with Lea Michele’s (Rachel) new boyfriend, Matthew Paetz? “I have not met him,” the 24-year-old dished. “But I remember her talking about him, and I’m very happy for her.” Aww! That’s better than nothing, right?
Speaking of Glee, Chris also said that he’s been told shooting on the sixth and final season is expected to start around “mid-September”, and although he claims to have “no idea” what’s coming down the pike, he did joke that he hopes legendary actress Shirley MacLaine will come back and reprise her role as socialite June Dolloway.
