Ryan Reynolds may be People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive, but we know one six-packed high school Spanish teacher who could give him a run for his hunk money: Mr. Will Schuester. "Glee" star Matthew Morrison bares his soul (and his chest) for the December issue of Details magazine, and it's obvious the actor has mixed emotions about his new-found fame.
In an art-imitating-life revelation, Matthew admitted that if he hadn't attended New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, he likely would have become a high school teacher. "If I hadn't gotten in, my life probably would've been a lot more like Mr. Schue's," he said. Matthew dropped out during his sophomore year to pursue Broadway full time, and he isn't shy about revealing he was quite popular among his female costars.
"There was so much opportunity," he said. "There were all these beautiful, beautiful dancers. As a straight guy I had some room. There were the shared interests in singing and dancing, and I always find dancing with someone very evocative and sexual. I definitely hooked up with a lot of girls when I was a young guy on Broadway. It was exciting. Very joyous and free."
Nowadays, the frenetic pace of "Glee"—rehearsals and taping make for 15-hour days on set—leaves little time for a social life. Though he's been spotted out and about with Hollywood starlets like Cameron Diaz, Matthew said it's "been a while" as far as dating is concerned. "Meeting people, you wonder, 'What does this person see in me?' I'm not a good friend right now. I'm not a good boyfriend. It's not that I'm selfish. I'm just focused."
The sex appeal that's made him one of Hollywood's hottest bachelors is something Matthew is uncomfortable using to his advantage in the industry, but he also recognizes that he owes much of his success to his chiseled jaw line and curly locks. "I'm not comfortable with the idea of my sex appeal, but I know in my job I have to use it. I wish I could say I got to this point in my career based on my talent, but I don't think that's true," he admitted.
What do you think of Matthew's Detail's cover? Would you like to see him pursue roles outside of "Glee"?
