Lea Michele graces the cover of Allure magazine’s December 2011 issue. Inside, she discusses her unconventional beauty and her Glee co-star, Gwyneth Paltrow.
On her unconventional beauty: “Have I been asked to change anything? Uh-huh. Uh-huh. When I was 15, my mother and I went to meet a manager who said, ‘You have to get a nose job in order for me to work with you.’ My mother would say to me, ‘Barbra Streisand never got a nose job. You’re not getting a nose job.’ And this was before I really even knew who Barbra was. I just knew that she was, like, the messiah for girls like me.”
On her sometime Glee co-star, Gwyneth Paltrow: “I don’t know what people are smoking, because this woman is one of the most talented, beautiful, smart but laid-back, cool people I’ve worked with. That’s what I hate about this business. Before I met her, I was intimidated because of her image. But she’s the greatest.”
