Lea Michele proud of 'prize' breasts

Lea Michele has joked her breasts have earned their place on the red carpet as they are her "prize winners".

The actress is famed for played straight-laced Rachel Berry in high school singing show Glee.

She has chosen to show how different she is from her character this year by flaunting her figure at glitzy events. The 26-year-old star sees no reason why she shouldn't don plunging necklines if she feels like it and has given a tongue-in-cheek description of why she opted to sex up her image.

"These babies are great. They are my prize winners," she laughed to the latest edition of US Marie Claire magazine.

"They were nervous to make their appearance but feel they've earned their place. So they asked if they could come out, and I was like, 'All right, you guys.' They definitely rose to the occasion, so I'm going to continue to give them more opportunities."

Lea and her co-stars Dianna Agron and Cory Monteith famously caused a storm when they posed for a raunchy photoshoot for GQ magazine. Many claimed they shouldn't be overtly sexy as Glee is fundamentally a children's programme so the majority of their fans are young people.

Lea also touched on her future ambitions while talking to Marie Claire. Tom Hooper's new movie adaptation of Les Misérables enjoyed its London premiere last week, with Anne Hathaway tipped for an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of starving prostitute Fantine.

Lea hoped to bag the part of Eponine and is still devastated it went to Samantha Barks.

"It's something I would have loved to have done, and I think I could have done an amazing job," she said.
