"Glee" star Chris Colfer on meeting politicians who don't vote for gay rights – but want a picture with him

"Glee" star Chris Colfer will be a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" on Monday night, 9pmET/PT, and he talks about his rise to fame, homophobia and more. But he also discusses a recent visit to the White House Correspondents dinner, where he encountered some politicians. "Like a huge nerd, I do watch C-SPAN occasionally," he told Piers Morgan. "And so it's great when people come up and they're like, 'I just love you, can I have a picture with you,' and I'm like yeah sure, you don't believe in me or my rights, but you want a picture with me, sure I'll have a picture with you."

Does he think a picture could change their future votes?
"It's more likely they'll change their mind positively if I give them the picture," he said. "It is kind of nice when people believe so strongly against you and yet they want to prove that they meant you."

Watch the full interview, 9pmET/PT.
