Michele: I was told to get nose job

Lea Michele says she was told to get a nose job

Lea Michele is proud of herself for not succumbing to pressure to get a nose job.

The Glee star told GQ magazine that she refused to get surgery despite being told that she needed to get a nose job in school and when she started acting, according to reports.

"I was one of the only girls in my high school that didn't get one. And if anybody needed it, I probably did. But my mom always told me, growing up, 'Barbra Streisand didn't get a nose job. You're not getting a nose job.' And I didn't," she said.

The 24-year-old - Rachel Berry in the hit US show - added: "That's why I'm proud to be on a positive show and to be a voice for girls and say, 'You don't need to look like everybody else. Love who you are.'"

The actress posed in racy shots for the November edition of the magazine.

Asked to compare Glee with American Idol, she said: "One is about being judged, and one is not".

Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
