Matthew Morrison Doesn't Get the 'Glee' Over His Curls

Move over Robert Pattinson, Glee’s Matthew Morrison is moving in on your hairy territory. “It’s become a talked-about issue which is crazy!” Morrison told PEOPLE about the hair raising phenomenon of fans lusting after his luscious curls at the 69th Annual Peabody Awards in New York City on Monday. “Fans will come up to me and compliment my hair and all my friends are like, ‘When did this even happen? Your hair has become this crazy thing.’” Morrison, 31, who plays Will Schuester on the hit FOX series, is even teased in character for his natural curly locks by Jane Lynch’s cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, but says it takes a lot of hard work and hours in front of the mirror to meticulously style his curly coif. “I use all natural berries and juices — that’s the secret” he jokes. “And it’s all about the ultra perm. It’s the good stuff to rock out this hair.” Joking aside, Morrison says he doesn’t really spend too much time on his hair and simply uses a little gel to maintain his curls, which he inherited from his mom. “She has beautiful curly hair and it’s all because of her. Just one of the many reasons why I need to thank her.” –Paul Chi

At least he likes his hair. My son has that same type, and would much rather cut it short than deal with the curls.

The berries/juices/ultraperm bit was shamelessly stolen from “Coming to America.”

Kristen, I think that was the point — he was making a joke.
