Cory Monteith Doesn't Want Gleeks to Know About His Bad Boy Past
Cory Monteith wasn't exactly the star quarterback in high school like his Glee character Finn. The Canadian actor recently revealed that he was a troubled teen, but has tried to keep his past to himself so as not to influence his fans.
"You have to really look to get into trouble in Victoria but I was industrious," he says in the November issue of GQ. "Skipping school. Drinking... Things started off innocent like that. I definitely found myself in some places that I'm very fortunate I came back from..."
Cory dropped out of high school at age 14 and committed petty crimes, however, he doesn't like to talk about it because he's worried that Gleeks will follow in his footsteps. He says, "(But) the last thing I want to do is kind of imply to (interview) readers in high school that you too can drop out and be an actor and get on a big show and be famous and make a s***load of money."
We understand where Cory is coming from, but we also think he's being really hard on himself. If you look at his history from another angle, it can be argued that acting actually bettered his life and saved him from going down a truly dark path. What do you think about Cory's bad boy past? Does it change the way you feel about him or is it totally irrelevant considering the kind of good he's doing with his life now? %Poll-54537%
