Chris Colfer once called the police during a trip to the movies after he was mobbed by a group of overeager fans.
The star has gained a cult following since landing the role of Kurt Hummel on "Glee," but he was left shaken and injured after one fan encounter.
He tells CNN chat show host Piers Morgan, "I was at a movie theatre once, and I was by myself, stupidly, and I was semi-mobbed…
"It got very physical, and people were pulling at me and grabbing at me. And I had to call the police. And the next day, I was covered in bruises because people got so physical with me.
"It's really a mind trip because, on one hand, you want them to stop, you want it to stop. But on the other hand, you know that… since you are in the public eye, that if you are a raging jerk and say ';Get off me, leave me alone', then you know it's going to be written about the next day and… there'll be talk about what a jerk you are, because you said that."
Chris just turned the big 21 yesterday! Happy birthday Chris! Chris and his fellow "Glee" co-stars will be performing at the Staples center tonight and tomorrow. Are you planning on going?
