Are Glee stars Jenna Ushkowitz and Kevin McHale taking their on-screen relationship off-screen?
The actors, who play Tina Cohen-Chang and Artie Abrams on the hit Fox show, are dating, and were spotted getting cozy on the beach in Monaco in June. But Ushkowitz is tight-lipped about her costar – though she doesn’t deny the possibility of a real-life romance.
“Rumors are bound to happen,” she told PEOPLE at the Pattern for Paws charity event benefiting the Amanda Foundation in Los Angeles. “[The cast is] all so incestuous and close that we figure anything will come out.”
