Matthew Morrison talks to Britain's OK! magazine about his near-death experience.

Matthew Morrison almost died kite-surfing.

The 'Glee' star feels lucky to be alive after a terrifying near-death experience while trying out the extreme sport when the cord wrapped itself around his neck.

Asked whether there is anything the multi-talented actor can't do, he confessed to Britain's OK! magazine: "I'm not good at golf and I should be better at flossing my teeth. In fact, there are plenty of things. I like pushing myself and usually if I'm not good at something, I just won't do it because I'm a perfectionist. I tried kite surfing and I nearly died.

"The cord that goes around the kite somehow got wrapped around my neck, and the kite was going so fast and was dragging me underwater. I thought I was going to die. Eventually the kite dipped down in the water and released the tension on my neck. It was one of the scariest moments of my life."

Matthew, who has been dating singer Renee Puente for two years, also admitted he was terrified about losing his virginity because his father deliberately scared him off with stories of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and pregnancies.

He laughed: "My dad was a midwife. I grew up with him telling me about all these pregnancies. But he put me off sex for a long time, I was so scared! I think it was intentional, he'd come home with these vivid pictures of STDs and I'd be like, thanks dad!"
