'Glee' star Chris Colfer admits he shares no similarities with his character Kurt Hummel
'Glee' star Chris Colfer is "nothing like" his on-screen character Kurt Hummel.
The 20-year-old actor admits he has few similarities to his fashionable alter-ego, and would not want to partake in styling his character.
He said: "I am nothing like Kurt! No, no. It's hard to convince people of that. It's just that before they made Kurt what he was, they knew they wanted me on the show - I was attached to it prior to them creating him.
"I have no say in what he wears whatsoever. I wouldn't have it any other way, though, because if I did I would ruin everything.
"I'm good at my style but not Kurt's style. I have got better at knowing the designers as time has gone on. I had no idea who Marc Jacobs was when I started. I'm such a disappointment."
Chris also admits he had little luck trying to break through into the big time before winning his role on 'Glee'.
He said: "I took everything way too seriously. The kids going on all these Disney made-for-TV movies tend to be loud and obnoxious and I was always very serious. Like, frowning and holding up Yorick's skull. That was my problem."
