“Glee” cheerleader Heather Morris mops up show’s rumors
Hollywoodnews.com: Heather Morris aka cheerleader Brittany on “Glee” put the kibosh to several rumors surrounding the show, i.e. that the cast is overworked, the Newsweek fiasco targeting cast member Jonathan Groff and that Lea Michele is a diva on wheels.
Newsweek ran a controversial opinion piece stating that gay actors are unable to play straight onscreen, in particular Groff as Michelle’s boyfriend on the show.
Morris lets out to E!’s Ted Casablanca “(creator) Ryan (Murphy) makes sure we talk to him about anything and everything that goes on. It’s like having a father. He’s so smart about everything. Everything he’s been speaking about, how gay [actors] can play straight—he really stands behind. Everything he does is for a good cause. Coming from behind the scenes, it’s like he’s never going to say anything false or make anything up. God, I support him in everything.”
And is it true that Michele’s solid waste really doesn’t stink?
“We get along abnormally well. I was telling someone else, there was an article about how the cast of Glee is getting along just fine, and it’s true,” says Morris.
Make no mistake, the “Glee” cast makes great harmony both on and off the set:
“We all know our boundaries, we’re with each other all the time. I mean we all have our closest friends. Me and Naya [Rivera] are close, Amber [Riley] and Chris [Colfer] are close. It’s actually very reflective of the show. We’re all just a family and keep each other’s distance,” sums Morris.
