Is this a thing? Apparently so! Dianna Agron (Quinn) gets asked so often about whether she has romantic feelings for her co-star Lea Michele (Rachel) that the Glee actress had to address it once and for all in the May 2011 issue of Marie Clarie.

“Everybody is convinced that Lea and I are in a relationship,” Dianna dished to the mag (via Hollywood Life). “There are supposedly forums with photos of us hugging at work or events. It’s funny, but flattering — Lea is beautiful. Since when can’t you hug your friends?”

Good point! And not that there isn’t a deep platonic love between the two. Of Lea, Dianna gushed, “Lea taught me how to stand up for myself more, like realizing that I can’t be in 10 places at the same time.”

And like any great friend, Lea also helps Dianna when she’s in need... of protection! “Once, we were flying from Sydney to Melbourne when a crazy guy grabbed my face and kissed me. Lea yelled and pushed him off of me. A mean stewardess who hadn’t seen it turned around and said, ‘You two be quiet!’ And Lea yelled, ‘No, that man just kissed my friend!’”

Oh, to have been a fly on that cabin wall.
