Glee's Lea Michele in Marie Claire UK Magazine November 2010

Lea Michele Says Her School Was More Gossip Girl Than Glee

Glee's leading lady Lea Michele has stripped down for a raunchy photoshoot and stunning cover for Marie Claire UK's November issue. Lea also chatted with the mag about her lifestyle, the musical TV show and her own school experience, which she describes as more Gossip Girl than Glee. Here are some extracts from her interview:

  • On partying: "I can honestly sit down in front of you and say I don’t smoke and I don’t do drugs. I never have and that’s who I am . . .These days I have one glass of wine and I’m completely gone. I’ve never been a 'Let’s go out and have a cosmopolitan' kind of girl. I don’t even think I’ve ever tasted a cosmopolitan before. I much prefer a glass of wine and a bath at home at night to relax."
  • On Glee: "We knew it was a great, great pilot, but there hasn’t been a successful TV show that has music in it for, like, ever. Ally McBeal did it kind of; Fame. But for years it hasn’t been done. What I love about our show is that it opens your eyes to a lot of things without being preachy . . . I feel very equal to my cast and I feel like I couldn’t do what I do without them."

  • On her school experience: "My school was bit like Gossip Girl in that there was a lot of money and we didn’t have as much. I was different to those people and I didn’t like the things that they liked. I would go to parties and the best part of going would be the leaving. I would go to a party because I felt that’s what I should be doing. I’m such a loser!"
  • On her teachers: "My acting teacher and music teachers didn’t really like me and they kind of ignored me. I think that they were threatened by the fact that I had worked before. Maybe it made them uncomfortable. I would have loved for them to have taught me but maybe they felt like they couldn’t. They just ignored me and didn’t really pay attention to me. Like they were stupid, that it was pretty silly of them. I’m on a show called Glee right now and I could sing their praises, but unfortunately I don’t have anything to say."

She looks amazing. I dont really know much about her...I've never read an interview with her or seen an interview with her on TV. She seems sweet though.
