They play each other's teenage dream on "Glee," and now Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are talking about their own school-days crushes – as well as their intimate on-screen scenes – in the December issue of Teen Vogue.
Monteith, 28, tells the magazine his first love was a junior-high sweetheart. "We couldn't hang out at her parents' house, so we hung out in this big field, underneath a willow tree," says the Canadian actor, who plays football star Finn. "That's where we were the first time we made out. It was beautiful, tall grass and all that, but it was on the side of a highway, so people were honking their horns at us."
Bronx-born, New Jersey-raised Michele, 24 – who portrays McKinley High overachiever Rachel - reveals that she's still pals with her high school sweetheart and that she's equally chummy with Monteith.
"We're such good friends that we've passed that level of weirdness," she says of her relationship with her co-star. "Cory farts in front of me."
As for those rumors that the "Glee" cast has been ordered to stop hooking up with each other, Michele, who is dating "American Idiot" actor Theo Stockman, jokes, "Oh, we've all gotten down and dirty. It's, like, nasty. We can't keep our hands off each other." Adds Monteith, who claims he's currently single, "It's borderline disgusting."
Michele does, however, confirm reports that co-stars Mark Salling (Puck) and Naya Rivera (Santana) were once an item. "I think Mark and Naya dated for a little while," she says, acknowledging that she's also heard whispers of an angry Rivera keying Salling's car. "All I have to say is that it was nice when they were together."
Michele has equally kind words for newcomer Chord Overstreet, aka blond singer Sam, whom she describes as a "hottie."
"All of the girls on the show like Sam," explains Monteith. "And I think, for the most part, we've been welcoming. There's hasn't been any hazing or anything."
