Cory Monteith attended the 18th Annual Critics Choice Awards held at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, Calif. on Thursday (January 10). The Glee actor recently came back from a vacation in Hawaii with girlfriend and co-star Lea MIchele.
Asked about his suntanning habits on the red carpet he told E! News, “I’m like an SPF 70 million kind of guy. I think [Lea] wants me to get a little color to be honest, because I’m transparent almost, I’m so pale.”
He added, “Those paparazzi!. We went to one of the most remote locations in the United States. This valley we went to, they followed us there, I was shocked.”
“[I had] no idea that they were there. We went for this beautiful hike, valley and everything, and bam, they showed up. It was like, ‘I can’t believe you guys followed us all the way here.’ And then I was like, ‘Take our picture because you worked so hard for it you deserve it.'”
“I’m just the guy from Glee from Canada,” Monteith joked. “I’m just on vacation. Don’t you want to take pictures of Jack Black or something?”
