Naya Rivera: I Was A Nerd in High School!

Naya Rivera: I Was A Nerd in High School!

Naya Rivera may play a cheerleader on Glee, but she says her actual high school experience wasn’t like Santana’s at all!

Here’s what the 23-year-old actress had to share with Fitness magazine:

On her Glee alter ego: “In high school I was most like Artie and Rachel. I knew what I wanted, like Rachel, although I wasn’t as obnoxious. But like Artie, I was a nerd, always trying to fit in and get my hair to lie flat.”

On her go-to exercise: “Legs and butt get the most attention in the Cheerios uniform, so those are my target areas. Lots of squats!”

On her can’t-live-without foods: “When we did the Glee Live tour, I had to have hummus and guacamole on hand for healthy snacks.”

On her athletic past: “My dad always wanted me to be sporty, so I tried softball. I was 12 and tiny, and all the other girls were huge and looked 25. I was too afraid of the ball to bat.”
