Lea Michele Talks Ambition, Love For Gwyneth Paltrow, In Harper’s Bazaar

|

She want’s it all! Lea Michele covers the September edition of Harper’s Bazaar, but we far prefer this shot in the more dramatic photoshoot inside. And for someone so little (“I’m five foot three. I don’t look like a lot of other people, you know what I mean? I look like I’m 12″), she’s got big ambitions! Lea told the magazine, “I don’t stop. “It’s my nature. People have to tell me to slow down. I plan on playing every role on Broadway. I want to do Evita. I want to do Sweeney Todd with [Glee costar] Chris Colfer. We want to do Wicked. I’ll be Elphaba and he wants to play ‘Guy-linda.’ I want to do movies, make music. Glee is only the beginning.”

She also makes some particularly surprising confessions concerning who she fangirls over. “I am obsessed with Gwyneth Paltrow” she reveals adding, ” I was nervous and said, ‘I don’t think I can do that dance move.’ She said, ‘You can do it.’ She wasn’t afraid of anything. I love talking with Gwyneth. She just gives good advice. She said, ‘Don’t ever read anything about you’.” The interview goes on more about what she thinks of her looks, her boyfriends and how she auditioned for Glee. And the funny thing is, we may not have been big fans of Lea before this, but this interview kinda changed our minds! We’d chill with her at Le Pain Quotidient (read the interview, guys) any time.
