As far as careers go, Lea Michele has a lot working in her favor. She’s a talented actress, a phenomenal singer and a decent enough dancer to get away with it. So we’re not surprised that she’s such a confident person; we would be too if we were in her shoes. HOWEVER, sometimes she manages to seriously toe the line between confident and downright cocky.
In a recent interview with V magazine, the 27-year-old Glee star says of her image, “My friends call me Grandma, but like, Grandma’s killing it right now. I’m pretty sure Grandma nailed it in a half-naked Terry Richardson shoot, okay? So I’m fine with it. I just do my thing. I do what’s best for me. That’s it.” (For some of the sexy pictures she’s referring to, visit our friends at Crushable.com.)
But that’s not the only time she erred on the side of arrogance. Remember the Marie Claire interview about her boobs? “These babies are great. They are my prize-winners. For a while, they were out and about, showing off on Broadway every night, then they came to L.A. and were like, ‘No one else looks like me here!’ 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.”
Love her and all — really, we do — but perhaps a bit of humble pie would serve well in these particular instances. Agree? Disagree? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below, and make sure to catch Lea on tonight’s Glee or via her Louder album, on sale March 4.
