'Glee's' Lea Michele: My Cast Is My Family


“Glee” star Lea Michele may be small in stature, but the pint-sized actress’ star-power is huge.

In the October issue of Glamour magazine, the beauty with the big voice opens about her castmates, how she stays in shape and her ideal date.

Michele tells Glamour she knew from a very young age that she was meant to be in the spotlight.

“When I was a little kid, my mother and I used to watch the Golden Globes,” she said. “I would dress up and she would get sparkling apple cider and we would make a tray of hors d’oeuvres and watch it together. And I would get up and make a pretend speech.”

But with all the fame and fortune that her role on the hit show “Glee” has earned her, Michele says her friends, who just happen to be her co-stars, help keep her grounded.

Of fellow star Amber Riley, Michele says, “ We’re both big personalities, and you definitely would think we’d bump heads. But she has taught me more about myself than anyone. She
inspires me, she protects me, she makes me laugh, she tells me not to take myself so seriously. She’s my Mama Amber.”

Pick up the October issue, which hits newsstands on September 8.
