Chris Colfer: I’m too old for drama

Chris Colfer tries to avoid the controversy that often surrounds some of his Glee co-stars.

The Glee actor has witnessed a number of his co-stars getting accused of being “divas” and hard to work with. But the 23-year-old puts in a lot of effort to stay out of controversy.

“I just mind my own business, really," he told People Magazine. "I don't want to say life is too short for drama, but I think I'm just too old for drama. I'd rather go home and be with my cat and my dog than start a war with someone."

The actor, who plays Kurt Hummel in the hit series, hates to see his colleagues, such as Lea Michele and Naya Rivera, have awful stories published about them. But the star feels like he’s trapped between a rock and a hard place because no matter what he says, he feels his words will end up being twisted.

“It's really sad, I've seen some of my closest friends on Glee go through where these horrible things are written about them and none of it is true, but some reporter wants to get a hit, they say so-and-so is a raging bitch,” he said. “It's really unfortunate. There's almost no point in ever clearing anything because people are just going to write what they want."

The actor, who is set to guest star in comedy Hot In Cleveland soon, hasn’t escaped false stories completely. But he does get why such articles are created in the first place.

“People have written fake stories about me dying before because they know it's a guarantee hit on their link," he explained. "No matter what I say, people are going to take it and spin it. Everyone clicks on that link as opposed to, 'Ooh, check out Chris Colfer's children's series.' No one wants to click on that."
