- Chris Colfer said during a new interview that he won’t be seeing Lea Michele in “Funny Girl.”
- When asked by host Michelle Collins if he’d like to attend a performance with her, Colfer demurred.
- “I can be triggered at home,” Michele’s former “Glee” costar told Collins.
Chris Colfer hilariously revealed in a new interview that he isn’t planning on watching Lea Michele perform in “Funny Girl.”
During Tuesday’s episode of her eponymous Sirius XM radio show, host Michelle Collins asked Colfer if he’d like to accompany her to a performance of the hit Broadway musical. Michele currently stars as Fanny Brice in the production, after taking over for Beanie Feldstein.
Following an extended pause, Colfer declined Collins’ invite, telling her: “My day suddenly just got so full.”
Colfer then attempted to change the subject, saying he saw a performance of the new musical “Six” (a modern retelling of the six wives of King Henry VIII), which was “amazing.”
Collins doubled down, however, asking Colfer point blank: “So you’re not seeing it, is my guess, while you’re in town?”
“No, I can be triggered at home,” Colfer replied, sending Collins into a fit of laughter.
Colfer and Michele starred on the Fox musical comedy “Glee” together throughout the show’s six seasons. Colfer played Kurt Hummel, and Michele played overachiever Rachel Berry. As People noted, while Michele and Colfer still follow each other on Instagram, it appears there’s some remaining tension between the two former costars.
Michele’s behavior on the set of “Glee” alienated several of her cast members at the time, including Heather Morris (who played Brittany), the late Naya Rivera (who played Santana), and Samantha Marie Ware, who accused Michele of “traumatic microaggressions” against her in 2020.
Michele later apologized for her past actions in a lengthy statement, conceding that she “clearly acted in ways which hurt other people.”
