Matthew Morrison: Shirtless 'Details' Cover Man!

Matthew Morrison: Shirtless 'Details' Cover Man!

Matthew Morrison flaunts his sexy six pack abs on the December 2010 cover of Details magazine, captured by photog Norman Jean Roy on September 25 in Malibu, Calif. Here are some highlights from the mag’s interview:

On being a player: ‘There was so much opportunity. 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.” But Matthew didn’t shed his inhibitions entirely. He joined a Bible-study group in college, and he didn’t lose his virginity until he was 21.

On being a sex symbol: “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.”

On wishing some of his Glee co-stars were a little less publicity-driven: “I am a teacher to them,” Matthew says of the younger castmates he refers to as “the kids.” “I’ve taken a few under my wing. I don’t want to say they idolize me, but… I find myself learning a lot from the set. I do look at stuff people on the show are doing, and I don’t judge them, but I question it. I say to myself, ‘Keep quiet.’ Fame … it’s like a handgun – in the wrong hands, it’s dangerous.”

On dating: “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.”

FYI: To get into tip-top shape for this photo shoot, Matthew ate well and in the final few days used a trick Sue Sylvester pushed on her cheerleading squad — a sweet potato-only diet.

    he’s very yummy !!!

  • Buzzy

    Plucked. Chicken. Zero appeal without that yummy hairy chest.

  • Iffy Miffy

    He’s yummy and smart.

  • Dan

    God, he’s so ripped.

  • yeah right

    Please. He is not a sex symbol.

  • yeahwhateverlulz

    He has a good body but there’s something about him that completely turns me off.

  • kiki

    He sounds pretty conceited to me, not just this interview but others as well. And he isn’t as hot as he thinks either. Though those abs (if they are real) are pretty impressive but don’t like his face at all.

  • Lol

    A lot of buttafaces Running around hollywood these days

  • Cristobal

    He has a nice body.

  • British Latin American

    He does seem conceited, and I’m not buying the whole ‘player’ thing, at least not in the way that he implies.

  • shibby

    The things he is saying are really “douchey”

  • Lorna

    I’m disappointed with the loss of the chest hair. Other than that I’m loving this lady porn cover.

  • taylor

    I’m sorry, he’s concerned about the other cast members? Has he heard himself talk? He’s the one who sounds like fame is getting to him.

  • Elisilla

    “yeahwhateverlulz He has a good body but there’s something about him that completely turns me off.”

    Yeah!!! Me too!!! there’s something in his face that I just hate, I don’t know what or why. But his body is hot.

  • angel

    what a poser, seriously, who eats a sweet potato only diet unless they’re living for others approval. i’m not judging him, just questioning his focus.

  • James

    OMG. Do you guys see the cover is photoshopped. His abs are not that popped or pronounced. Look at the beach pictures and cover photo. Those are no his real abs. He does have a good body though, but they give him these abs that are so hard to get and are unrealistic. Why couldn’t they just use his real abs.

  • http://twitter annie

    mmmmmm matt ,i love u. i like a guy who doesnot need a steady girl and admits it.finally a free man, go for it.

  • fardous

    im not glee fan but he is yammy look good too

  • liz

    “He has a good body but there’s something about him that completely turns me off.” completely agree

  • kant spel

    Nice body, but absolute butter-face.

  • SayNOtotheturtleneck

    Photoshop to death and he sounds so full of himself, also, he shaves his chest?

  • Oye Vey

    His abs are real. He just flashed them last night on Glee.

  • toby

    He’s really UGLY

  • TJ.

    He comes across as a kn0bhead in print and a complete douchebag in TV interviews.

  • EBennett

    Forget his offputting arrogance, WHAT A BUTTERFACE LMAO

    He has the face of someone’s grandad roflmao!!!!

  • JJ

    This guy seems like a total douchebag. I don’t see him going very far after this Glee hype is gone.

  • angie

    thanks photoshop for the abs

  • Marie

    His face reminds me of feet. And he’s a total douchebag. I stopped watching Glee (mostly) because of him. Plus the lack of storylines, character development and all those little details.

  • dawn


  • ChickenCoop

    Wow he’s sounds like a complete douche in this interview…..

  • gaby

    douchebag come to my mind when i read all the article of the magazine, he thinks so much of himself and the “kids” that need to learn, well is kind of hard for the “kids” because they have paparazzi now fowlling them around, in supermarket and coffee shops.

  • massive_head

    my favourite comment of his is, “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.”

    his attempt at modesty so clearly reveals both, a) his absurd delusion about how attractive he is .. and b) his need for approval via the obligatory interviewer response of, “oh come on matt! you’re SO talented!”

    he irritates the hell out of me. yeah, he has a great body, but he has ALWAYS come across as a prima donna. forget Lea Michele, this guy is the biggest DIVA on set.

  • luisaonline


  • anna

    @Buzzy: eew, he looks so much better now! his body loos amazing without that season 1 gross chest hair!

  • snookie

    This guys abs look waaaaaaaaay better than the Situations. Dunno why Sitch’s abs are so famous – they look abnormal

  • Sharon

    He is in no way ugly. He is just an average looking guy with one hell of an adonis belt. Wish he would have kept the chest and stomach hair though. The best trail to follow is a happy one!

  • Jokergurl


  • Marie

    this guy is really talented and his body looks great, but i dont find him handsome at all

  • Lulu Guinness

    Oh wow! I gotta look into this!

  • Tracy

    I don’t understand all the hate toward him, he has a nice body. Someone’s being bitch about his body???!!! You apparently cannot see clearly.
    And he’s just being honest in this interview, not conceited, if you’ve read the whole interview on the DETAILS website, you would’ve see, some cast member IS being a DIVA on the Glee set, and it’s not even he that pointed it out, it’s the observation of the reporter himself.
    So get over yourselves, all the haters all there, evidently you are not rational or polite.

  • Lalaland

    Again, I’m not a hater, I love Glee. But my gaydar is off the roof. Also, I find his acting “straight” in Glee off-putting. His fake laugh pretty much seals the deal.

  • seriously, yo

    they seriously airbrushed the hair off his chest… very lame!!!

    and he’s conceited… the cast “idolizes” him.. PUH-LEASE!!!

    and I’m a huge Glee fan!! saw them in concert and everything! LOL

  • vale

    he’s pretty some times, but looks old and this photo in fact looks with photoshop :(

  • Sherry

    He looks very good, to be frank.
    As arrogant as his quotes may seem in this article, I actually find him quite down-to-earth, after reading that whole interview on Details. He seems stay true to himself, which is a rare quality in today’s show biz.
    This article here is somewhat misleading, just saying.
    And, don’t judge a person too abruptly.

  • Bryan

    According to the interview reporter, Lea Michele seems to be the real diva on Glee, so the rumors that have been spreading around for a while now really have its credibility.

  • Dan

    He is very conceited and so is Lea Michele. They are both too much. Believe it. It’s not a well kept secret that Matty thinks very highly of himself.

    Interesting post. Can’t wait to hear more!
