If there’s one thing Lea Michele has learned from playing
Glee
‘s geek-chic misfit Rachel Berry, it’s that beauty comes from within. Starring on the cover of British Marie Claire in its November issue, the actress says the show has taught her to embrace her looks, flaws and all. “Glee has shown me that I am beautiful, no matter what I look like, what my weight is,” she says in the candid interview. Growing up in New Jersey, the 24-year-old admits she was never considered the most attractive girl at school, but the show has changed her attitude to beauty. “It doesn’t matter what you look like, beauty is on the inside,” she says with self-confidence. But doesn’t she get mad when the Glee scriptwriters make fun of her nose? It seems not. “You’ve got to laugh,” she says, although there is one matter of size she wants to clear up, once and for all. “They always talk about my boobs being too small and I’m like ok, let’s be real! Rachel does not have the smallest boobs in the club.” Of course, the actress is quick to point out that a small cleavage is nothing to be ashamed of, “but it’s not true!” Posing for the sexy photo shoot in a skimpy leotard and skyscraper heels in one shot and semi-topless in another, it’s clear to see that she’s a misfit no more.
