Glee's Lea Michele might be known for her rumored diva behavior, but she's opening up about some insecurities to Harper's Bazaar.
Says the 25-year-old actress:
- "I'm five foot three. I don't look like a lot of other people ... I look like I'm 12. ... managers told me, 'Get a nose job. You're not pretty enough' ... But I proved them wrong."
Lea is full of aspirations. A child star on Broadway, she plans to return to The Great White Way. "Glee is only the beginning," she says. "I plan on playing every role on Broadway ... I want to do movies, make music."
Such plans have earned Lea a diva reputation, but she explains:
- â€œPeople have to remember this is all new for us. Weâ€™re all reasonably young, except for Cory [Monteith], whoâ€™s old. Iâ€™ve learned some lessons ... I know who I am, and Iâ€™m not perfect.
Glee co-star Monteith is 29. But what older star does Lea really love? Find out after the jump!
"I am obsessed with Gwyneth Paltrow," says Lea. "She just gives good advice. She said, 'Donâ€™t ever read anything about you.'"
