Matthew Morrison, who plays choir director Will Schuester on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, says that he doesn't care if people think he's gay.

The 34-year-old Morrison, who is currently promoting his sophomore studio album Where It All Began, was asked by The Huffington Post whether rumors about his sexuality upset him.

“I know my own truth,” Morrison said. “I'm in a great relationship with a woman. Maybe before it used to bother me. Then I was like, 'This is so stupid that this bothers me. Some of my best friends in the world are gay, and if this is bothering me, then that means I have an issue with that.' Once I figured that out for myself, I thought, 'I don't care what anyone thinks about me.' That's why I think I've become an ally for the gay and lesbian community. I just got [an Ally for Equality Award] the other day in Atlanta. I've very proud of my role in the community. So say what you will.”

Morrison is currently dating Rene Puente.
