Lea Michele takes the September 2011 cover of Harper's Bazaar.
On her career: “I don’t stop,” Lea says. “It’s my nature. People have to tell me to slow down. I plan on playing every role on Broadway. . . . I want to do movies, make music. Glee is only the beginning.”
On rumors: “People have to remember this is all new for us,” Lea says. “We’re all reasonably young, except for Cory [Monteith], who’s old.” I’ve learned some lessons,” But people are going to say what they want to say. I know who I am, and I’m not perfect.”
On ignoring the haters: “How many managers told me, ‘Get a nose job. You’re not pretty enough’? But I proved them wrong.”
