Glee’s Lea Michele will grace the cover of the November issue of Marie Claire UK, with a racy photo spread of Michele semi-topless.
Michele has not always had the confidence that she exudes in her Marie Claire photo shoot.
“Glee has made me feel beautiful,” Michele said. “Now when people say that I don’t feel like they’re lying. I love myself, the way I look, my body, but sometimes I can’t help but feel insecure. [Being in L.A.] plays with your head.”
In a candid interview, 24-year-old Michele speaks about her childhood in New Jersey and how she was never considered the prettiest girl in school.
“Glee has shown me that I am beautiful, no matter what I look like, what my weight is,” she says. “It doesn’t matter what you look like, beauty is on the inside.”
