Last year, Lea Michele and her co-stars Dianna Agron and Cory Monteith posed for a sexy photoshoot for GQ that raised some eyebrows among parents, but the 25-year-old has no regrets over the pictures. Agron subsequently apologized for any offence caused by the shots, but Michele is unrepentant about the sexy shoot.
She tells Allure magazine, “People were really offended by this, being that we play high school students. But we’re not high school students! Cory is almost 30, and Dianna and I are 25. But there was such controversy.
“There was one photo where I was sitting on a bench, and they just happened to get me in a pose when my legs were like that (spread open). Look, I do try to keep in mind that there are a lot of young viewers watching our show. But it’s a delicate balance, continuing to be who you are but also remembering you’re in a certain position. But would I do it again? Absolutely.”
In the new issue of Allure, Lea also talks about not changing her looks. She said, “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.'” “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.”
