Theirs is a tale of two musical theater geeks who courted each other, and then went on to great fame and success…we’re talking about the unlikely pairing of Kristen Bell and Glee‘s Matthew Morrison. Not recently, of course, since Bell is engaged to Dax Shepard, but back in college, Bell admits that she and Morrison dated.
“I actually went to college with Matty Morrison,” Bell says, referring to the years they spent together at New York University where both studied theater. “We actually dated very briefly, so I’ll have to say maybe Matt Morrison is my favorite part of Glee for various reasons.” We love this kind of story. It’s like when we found out Tommy Lee Jones and Al Gore once were roommates, as were Danny DeVito and Michael Douglas, and Holly Hunter and Frances McDormand. That’s Hollywood magic right there!
Before becoming Veronica Mars and Sarah Marshall, Bell was actually a Broadway geek who was into musical theater, which makes her dalliance with Morrison apt – wonder if she’ll maneuver this tidbit into a coveted guest spot on the show?
