Glee star Idina Menzel (Shelby) is married to another Wetpaint Entertainment favorite (read: hunk) Taye Diggs so it’s only natural that her Season 3, on-screen romancer  Mark Salling (Puck) would be a tad intimidated by the Private Practice star (see: hunk).

"Yeah, that was awkward." he told the  LA Times of meeting Taye. Really? "No, he's a really nice guy." Oh, thank goodnes.

But, in all seriousness, Idina is a few years his senior and married with a baby. How does Mark cope with the ever-so-slightly uncomfortable circumstances of it all? "I really give myself over to the writers in that situation. I mean, there are kids who are hungry," he said, giving a holiday-timed nod to his work with charitable organization Feeding America. "I just have to do a few fun scenes with some great actors."

Yeah, we suppose it can't possibly be that difficult to have to shoot love scenes with hot older women all day. Still, we're sure Taye gave Mark a very firm handshake.
