You can read the full interview here.Lea says she’s been asked to change her appearance for work:“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,'” Michele tells us. “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 transition from Broadway to Hollywood:“I came from the theater world, where the word ‘diva’ was awesome,” she said. “But it’s different in Los Angeles. And this all happened to me so quickly. But I came to L.A., and the first audition I went on was for Glee. And I was on the show two months later and had a very different life.”

Leah defends her Glee co-star Gwyneth Paltrow, saying:“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,” she said. “That’s what I hate about this business. Before I met her, I was intimidated because of her image. But she’s the greatest.”
