Pick up the October issue of FITNESS Sept. 20 for Heather's sexy legs secret and tons more!

Calling all Gleeks! Heather Morris (known to Glee fanatics as Brittany) gave FITNESS the behind-the-scenes scoop on your favorite show.

Heather’s inspiration for playing Brittany: “She’s like a little kid who says, ‘I don’t get it.’ It’s funnier to me to play Brittany as not super-stupid, but really innocent.”

Why Heather thinks Glee is such a hit: “People love the music and the characters — everyone can relate to someone on the show, because everyone’s felt like an outsider at some point in their lives.”

Biggest OMG moment on set: “The Britney/Brittany episode. It was surreal. I was like, ‘Wow, I’m just hanging out with Britney Spears as Brittany the character. We’re doing a scene. I’m singing her songs.’ I was such a fan of hers! I was in a seventh grade talent show and I did her whole MTV Video Music Awards performance [from 2000] when she was in the sparkly skin-tone outfit. After the Britney/Brittany episode, she sent me flowers with a note that said, ‘Good Job, Love Britney.’ I’ll never forget that!”

Biggest oops: “While doing the ‘Singing in the Rain’ number, we were in a tub of water and after about the eighteenth take it was just disgusting. Water mixed with sweat and makeup, and it was gross. I was doing a dance move, and when I kicked, a whole puddle went all over Matt Morrison. I felt so bad!”

Heather’s favorite on-screen number: “MC Hammer’s ‘Can’t Touch This’ in the school library. There were a lot of sweet moves in that one.”
