Sounds like Mr. Schuester & Rachel are keeping their teacher-student relationship just that!

There are rumors going around that Glee co-stars Lea Michele, 23, and Matthew Morrison, 31, are secretly an item — but don’t pay too much attention to them! In a new interview with Parade magazine, Matthew says the whole situation is “so laughable,” and definitely NOT true. “[Lea and I] were literally on set and I got a call from my publicist, and [Lea] got a call a minute later,” he tells the mag. “We looked at the each other like, ‘What the f**k?'” Oh man, we wish we could have been there to see the looks on their faces!

Now that Matthew has made the leap from Broadway to Hollywood, he knows the public is going to be watching his every move… and he’s OK with it! (For the most part.)

“I feel like I can handle this stuff because I don’t really care,” he says. “I’ve never gotten into tabloids and I don’t really care about it now, but I just feel bad for other people in my life who are getting dragged into it. It just kinda sucks.”
