Matthew Morrison reveals kitesurfing ordeal

Matthew Morrison

Matthew Morrison says he once almost died while kitesurfing.

The Glee star has tried his hand at almost everything, including acting, singing, modelling and Broadway shows.

However, the 34-year-old won't be taking part in a certain water sport again anytime soon.

"[Is there anything I'm not good at?] I'm not good at golf and I should be better at flossing my teeth. In fact, there are plenty of things... I tried kitesurfing and I nearly died," he explained to the British edition of OK! magazine.

"The cord that goes around the kite somehow wrapped around my neck, and the kite was going so fast and was dragging me underwater. I thought I was going to die. Eventually the kite dipped down in the water and released the tension in my neck. It was one of the scariest moments of my life."

As well as starring in popular musical TV show Glee, Matthew has also appeared in big screen comedy What to Expect When You're Expecting.

Despite his many achievements, there are things the curly-haired hunk wishes he'd worked harder at.

"[I regret] not learning a proper instrument. I took two piano lessons and I wasn't into it, but I wish I'd learned," he admitted.

"I play the ukulele and the guitar but picked them up later in life, so I'm not great. I guess from a young age, I learned to use my voice so that's my instrument - I'm glad I got this one!"
