Matthew Morrison Wanted to Quit Glee Before Cory Monteith Died

But it wasn’t the only time Matthew’s struggles with work conflicted with his personal life. As he explained, he was constantly stressed by online criticism about his character.

“You have these newsfeeds coming out, bashing the way you’re playing your character,” he said. “People trying to tear you down, and that got interesting.”

Amid the “high highs” and “really devastating lows” of working on Glee, Matthew broke out with the psoriasis.

“I was just stressed,” he continued, “our bodies are not designed to go through that kind of pressure.”

Still, Matthew is grateful for his time on the show and how it continues to be relevant as a cultural touchpoint.

“The impact, that’s the thing that will stand the test of time,” he said. “For me, that’s a beautiful thing.”

Matthew added, “There are few and far between shows that have a cultural impact and a societal impact for people. I love being apart of that legacy.”
