Nearly a year after Star Trek actor Zachary Quinto came out of the closet, the super studly actor has confirmed he’s dating “Glee” and “Boss” actor Jonathan Groff.
Quick backstory for those of you not familiar with the inner gossip of the “Glee” world. Jonathan Groff stared opposite Lea Michele in the Broadway show “Spring Awakening” and then went on to play her conniving ex-boyfriend Jesse St. James on “Glee.”
In a new interview with the October issue of “Out” magazine, Quinto confirmed that he is indeed in a relationship with Groff and without giving away too many details, simply said, “I’m incredibly happy, I’m incredibly lucky.”
Quinto and Groff must be the real deal, because Quinto told the mag it took him many years to find a partner following the death of his dad.
“I found myself in a pattern of being attracted to people who were somehow unavailable, and what I realized was that I was protecting myself because I equated the idea of connection and love with trauma and death,” admits the actor, “I had to do a lot of work on the couch to really get to a place where I was able to show up to a relationship with someone who was actually capable of being in one – and that took a lot of trial and error.”
As for the future for these two, Quinto admits he wants a family.
“I definitely want kids…I want to share,” says the actor.
