Lea Michele says “no” when asked if she’d get a nose job.
With her mom’s support, Michele, 24, has firmly refused to get a nose job, even though she was encouraged to as an actress.
Michele told GQ Magazine, “I was one of the only girls in my high school that didn’t get one. And if anybody needed it, I probably did. But my mom always told me, growing up, ‘Barbra Streisand didn’t get a nose job. You’re not getting a nose job.’ And I didn’t.”
Michele sees her decision as a statement against Hollywood’s pressure to be perfect. “I’m proud to be on a positive show and to be a voice for girls and say, ‘You don’t need to look like everybody else. Love who you are.’ ”
Some critics say that when acting, Michele is trying too hard to be like Barbra Streisand. Perhaps, in this case, it’s a good thing?
