Although she may play a dumb, ditsy, yet hilarious cheerleader on Glee, Heather Morris is definitely no dummy when it comes to keeping it shape. This month, Morris covers Fitness Magazine and talks about her role, how she got there, and how she keeps up with that amazing figure!
As for her killer body, Morris explains to Fitness that she has been dancing since she was a one-year-old. The 24-year-old says that her love for dancing has gotten her through all the roughest parts of her life, like when her father passed away when she was only 14.
While the Glee star says that dancing has gotten her the great body she has, she admits to Fitness a big secret — when she was younger, she got breast implants! However, she later got them removed because it was painful and prevented her from dancing and working out as much as she wanted to.
Dancing is how she got the role on Glee to begin with. As one of Beyonce‘s backup dancers, Morris was brought in to teach Glee stars the choreography to the hit, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It).” Here, though, the producers were in the midst of casting someone for the character of dumbed-down Brittany S. Pierce, and they loved Morris, offering her the role. Pierce was, at first, going to be a non-speaking part, but Heather Morris could act. When the producers saw how she delivered hilarious one-liners, they had to add in dialogue.
Morris has become one of the Gleek’s favorites and most hilarious. But she takes everything she learned from her past experiences with her. She says in the Fitness interview that she learned a lot from Beyonce, like ”putting in the time really pays off. Beyonce is so focused. We’d have 12-hour days of nonstop dancing, and she was right there next to us from start to finish. I think that’s why she’s so mesmerizing on stage; she gives everything her all.”
While Morris is completely dedicated to her role in Glee, she tells Fitness that her real dedication lies with her boyfriend, Taylor Hubbell, who she hopes to marry and start a family with. ”I love acting, but if it affects my relationship, then I won’t continue doing it,” Morris says. Well girl, we hope you can do both, because we absolutely love you as Brittany S. Pierce (especially channeling Britney Spears on Glee)!Tags: Back Up Dancer, Beyonce, Boyfriend, Breast Implants, Brittany S. Pierce, Glee, Heather Morris
