Michele reveals the tidbit in her new book Brunette Ambition, while recalling how she landed the role of Rachel Berry on the Fox musical. "When we shot the pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, and Chris Colfer for the first time," Michele writes. "I had worked on Broadway with Jenna Ushkowitz and Matthew Morrison before. Matt had been a friend of mine for years, and in fact we'd actually dated back in the day for a Broadway beat."
Until now, Michele and Morrison always denied that they were more than friends. In 2010, Morrison discussed the rumors with Parade saying, "There's the one about Lea and myself, and we were literally on set and I got a call from my publicist, and she got a call a minute later and we looked at each other like, 'What the f--?' It's so laughable."
