Glee fans may have noticed that when Cory Monteith hit the Critics' Choice Movies Awards red carpet last night after his recent vacation in Hawaii, he wasn't nearly at tan as girlfriend Lea Michele.

"I'm like an SPF 70 million kind of guy," Monteith laughed to E! News when asked about his sunbathing habits. "I think [Lea] wants me to get a little color to be honest, because I'm transparent almost, I'm so pale."

Something the 30-year-old hunk couldn't protect himself from during the couple's romantic getaway? Photogs!

"Those paparazzi!" Monteith said, adding, "We went to one of the most remote locations in the United States. This valley we went to, they followed us there, I was shocked."

"[I had] no idea that they were there," Michele's beau continued. "We went for this beautiful hike, valley and everything, and bam, they showed up. It was like, ‘I can't believe you guys followed us all the way here.' And then I was like, ‘Take our picture because you worked so hard for it you deserve it.'"

While Monteith may not understand why he's such a paparazzi target, Finchel fans can never get enough of the gorgeous Glee couple.

"I'm just the guy from Glee from Canada," Monteith joked. "I'm just on vacation. Don't you want to take pictures of Jack Black or something?"

Glee fans all agree: nope!
