Lea Michele has revealed she has "never felt so beautiful".

The Glee star - best known for portraying Rachel Berry - said the hit TV show has helped her to discover her inner beauty.

"I've honestly never felt more beautiful than working on Glee," she revealed at the Los Angeles premiere of Glee: The 3D Concert Movie.

The 24-year-old actress recently revealed to US Harper's Bazaar that she was advised to get a nose job if she wanted to establish a Hollywood career - but said the show, which picked up three gongs at the Teen Choice Awards, had given her a huge confidence boost.

"Glee has really helped me to embrace my true beauty, no matter what I look like, and that's why I'm so thankful to be part of this show," she continued, adding that people should just love themselves.

Lea was joined on the red carpet alongside her co-stars Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith, Darren Criss and Dianna Agron, as well as director Ryan Murphy.

"This is crazy. I'm very excited about it because I'm really proud of the movie," said Ryan, clearly taken aback by the crowds waiting to catch a glimpse of their favourite cast members.

"We had no idea that we were going to do a concert tour or a movie, it just happened. Because the concert was sold out and so many people couldn't get tickets, we did the movie for them."

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie opens in UK cinemas on August 19.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

It isn't healthy to be emotionally dependent. Becoming more self reliant should be your first order of business, especially if you're in a troubled relationship. Your partner may balk at your decision to acquire new skills, get a job or accumulate property. Pay no attention to their complaints. The sooner you carve out a niche for yourself, the happier you will be. Slowly but surely, the balance of power will be restored to your union. It's time to come into your own.More
