True Darren criss and Chris Colfer, Chord Overstreet, Lea Michele As far as the cast of Glee is concerned, Lea Michele and Jenna Ushkowitz are the cry babies in the group, but there was a moment in filming the series finale, when all the boys also broke down in tears, RumorFix is reporting exclusively. While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, Darren Criss says, of course, he cried. "It was really cathartic," he said. "Everyone’s always like did you cry? Were you crying? Of course, of course, I’m gonna cry. There were moments where I didn’t feel the need to cry, but then everybody else was so I felt like a jerk for not crying and then I would join and go Oh My God this feels so good to cry it out. It was so nice." Lea said she and Jenna cry all the time and Chord Overstreet and Chris Colfer never do until the very last take. PICTURES: CAST OF GLEE REAL HIGH SCHOOL PICTURES Darren said,  "We were watching Matt Morrison sing us all a song so we were very much in our own kind of world experiencing this and one take they pulled a fast one on us. They took Matt out of it and put basically the entire crew and production there looking at us and we're like 'Come on!'" Jenna revealed, "Imagine every family member and friend that you’ve ever loved and that you have to say goodbye to and put them all in front of you at once." Lea added,  "We cried so hard that they actually cut." Things got so ridiculous, Chord, who has a beard now, started cracking up, "I was hysterically laughing. I was like guys you know what we’re all close to 30 playing high school crying." Chord revealed there's a moment in the finale where Cory Monteith is remembered and Chris added, "We could feel him he was there." The cast also told Ellen they took mementos from the set. Lea took Cory's football jersey, Jenna took a picture where she had a double chin, Darren took Figgins' couch and, of course, Chord took his gold shorts from the Rocky Horror Picture Show episode.
