Darren Criss revealed to Conan O'Brien that he made out with a different guy each night when he was in Hedwig &​ The Angry Inch. In an interview on the late-ninth chat show Conan, ex-Glee star Darren Criss shared an awkward story about the time he made out with a well-known gay porn star. Criss, who liked to pick out the most conservative guy to make out with during performances of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, though he had done so when one night some friends backstage told him that he in fact got off with a famous gay porn star. The actor, who was is most well known for playing the gay character Blain in Glee, played a transgender rock and roller, covered in heavy make-up, wig and lots of glitter. In the interview Criss told Conan O’Brien: "Kiss is a very polite term. I more like put my head inside their mouth basically." "I would tend to pick the people who I assumed didn’t know what was going on for the comedy – for myself and everybody else. I would try and target the most conservative-looking straight boys because that’s just more fun." Criss then told the story, that he thought he get ridiculed for, explaining: "I remember going for this one dude … who I basically roughed up quite a bit. He had make-up on him and everything." He then says how he kissed him "all up and everywhere that I could possible reach in the time that I had. The guy just had lipstick and glitter all over him." The musical theatre star said he "was pleased with myself for giving a rollicking good time to a conservative young man." However, a couple then came up to him after the show to asked Criss: "Do you know who that was? That’s our favorite gay porn star." Criss then made a joke of the situation by ending the story with: "So this guy was putting on airs. He’s clearly seen much more than I ever have. Shout out to that young man. Apparently he’s very well-liked and if I was going to do that, I only went for the best."
