Monday Morning Man: Matthew Morrison!
Today is this handsome and talented man’s 39th birthday. He is, of course, Matthew Morrison who we all fell in love with during his years as Will on Glee. Matthew and wife Renee welcomed their first child son Revel earlier this month.
Pre-Glee, Matthew had already been a smash on Broadway with the role of Link Larkin on Hairpsray and a Tony-nominated performance in The Light in the Piazza.
Back in 2009, Matthew was forced to come out as straight after a writer for Elle Magazine assumed he was gay. The topic was brought up again in a HuffPost Live interview several years later and here is what the actor had to say: ‘I don’t really care to be honest with you what people think. I know my own truth, I’m a very happy heterosexual man. But … I have a lot of gay friends and I’m a big supporter of gay rights and gay marriage. This is America, this is the land of freedom and opportunity and I think it’s kind of crazy that a loving or committed gay or lesbian couple can’t marry just because they’re different.”
He added: “I support my gay friends and they support me.”
