Glee's Lea Michele: 'I'm not a typical beauty'

Friday September 28, 2012

Glee actress Lea Michele said she was stunned when she was asked to front a L'Oreal campaign.

She revealed that she was so shocked because she is not a "typical beauty".

Lea, 26, said: "It's so amazing for me because I'm from New York and growing up I was never really considered the typical beauty, so the fact that I'm now the face of such an incredible company and brand is so awesome.

"That they would look at me and consider me is unbelievable."

The star also chatted about her role in Glee, and her love for the show focussing on "inner beauty".

She said: "I'm on the fourth season of my television show which is probably the most near and dear (to me). I'm so happy on the show. I love it so much.

"The fact that we are going into a fourth season so strong is really awesome. I really think that it's been such a blessing to be on a TV show that portrays inner beauty as well as external beauty."

Lea is also dating her co-star Cory Monteith, who plays Finn in the award-winning series.
