Although his former jobs include working in a cafeteria as a cookie scooper and in a dry cleaners as a clerk, look who’s come a long way, baby! Chris Colfer snagged the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in TV Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie — and based on what he told us, it sounds like his award won’t leave his sight.
In fact, Chris tells OK! he plans to sleep with his statue. Literally! “I think I am going to sleep with it. It is not going to leave my bedside. Usually when I get this is usually when I wake up. So I am going to keep it very close.”
Sounds like this is a real thrill for the actor, who has been watching the Golden Globes for as long as he can remember. He tells reporters, “I hate to say that I am a CinderFella but I kind of am. I have been watching the GG since I was an embryo and I actually got a Facebook from a friend who told me that one of her memories of me in school was when I got up and told everyone that I loved the Golden Globes.”
So, who was the first person this 20-year-old actor called after he won? “I was on the phone with my mom. And I was trying to say I can’t talk right now because I am in the press room. You’re in the rest room, no, the press room.”
While he was gleeful beyond words, it sounds like Chris will remember the night for a very long time, including a most embarrassing moment! “Tonight I completely embarrassed myself in front of Helena Bonham Carter and I saw her on the red carpet and screamed in her face. I will never forget when she kissed me on the cheek.”
