Lea: I didn't have face for fame
Lea Michele was once told she wasn't "pretty enough for fame", and was advised to get a nose job.
However, the Glee star defied her critics and found success in the hit TV show, alongside co-stars Cory Monteith, Chris Colfer and Dianna Agron.
"How many managers told me, 'Get a nose job. You're not pretty enough'? But I proved them wrong," she told US Harper's Bazaar.
The 24-year-old, who plays Rachel in the award-winning show, is eyeing up her next steps.
"I don't stop," she said of her blossoming career.
"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."
