Aaron Tveit Turned Down 'Glee' To Not Be 'Pigeon-Holed'

Aaron Tveit serves up a smoldering look for his sexy spread in Corduroy Magazine issue 11, available now.

The 33-year-old Grease: Live star talked to the mag, which features actress Audrey Tautou and artist Marina Abramovic on separate covers, about misconceptions people have about him, turning down a role on Glee, and the memories of making Les Mis.

On turning down Glee: “I was worried that if I did Glee, people would perceive me differently afterwards. I didn’t want to be pigeon-holed as a ‘teen actor.’”

On running into fans in public: “[Because of the roles I play] I meet people who are like, ‘Oh I expected you to be an asshole or a dirt-bag and wow, you’re actually a nice guy!”

On why he’s not that active on social media: “I just think that if people don’t know about you so much, then they’ll have an easier time believing whatever character you’re trying to play.”
