Lea Michele Covers 'Marie Claire' January 2013

Lea Michele looks glamorous on the cover of Marie Claire‘s January 2013 issue, on newsstands December 18.

Here is what the 26-year-old Glee actress had to share with the mag:

On her boyfriend Cory Monteith: “I don’t even remember a time when he wasn’t my boyfriend. No one knows me better than Cory. No one knows what it’s been like to go through this more than he does. Feeling like you have that net underneath you allows you to jump higher and go farther. He makes me feel like I can do anything. For the first time in my life, I feel really, really settled and happy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.”

On diva rumors: “I am a very outspoken person, and if something makes me uncomfortable, you will know that it makes be uncomfortable, but that’s as far as it goes. I can assure you that [diva rumors] aren’t real. It’s super-frustrating sometimes, and I used to fight back, but now I feel like, You can think what you want to think about me – that’s OK. I have the most amazing fans, friends, and family members who have stood by me, and I know that my cast and crew really enjoy working with me. That’s all that matters.”

On her breasts: “These babies are great. They are my prizewinners. 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.”

  • Alears

    did she really call her boobs “babies” and “prizewinners” wow she is pathetic. why are they all of a sudden telling the press about the relationship. is it because glee needs more ratings??? also glad she lost the part in the les miz movie because then she would act like shes a bigger star than hugh jackman and anne hathaway.

  • Pretty

    She looks great and has a good sense of hummor

  • Jake

    Haaaaa. Just looked out my window and saw two women way hotter than this famehoe hooknose.

  • Bobbie

    I love Lea’s quote about Cory. I saw him on Ellen and they really are so very cute together.

  • I Actually Know

    She is the product of an insane stagemother who has taught her child how to shamelessly promote herself.

  • Celine Dion

    Classic Jew face

  • Lauren

    Regardless of what her mother and agent tell her, she is not a special snowflake. It must kill her that Dianna Agron is working with Michelle Phieffer and Robert DeNiro and she’s… doing animated Wizard of Oz crap that will go straight to DVD.

  • Use OFF

    2 mosquito bites.

  • JeffH

    I thought she was super annoying until I read that quote about her breasts. That was hilarious!

  • Gym Teacher

    Half my Boy’s 7th grade gym class has bigger breasts than Lea.

  • Haters

    @Lauren: Dianna agron fans are ridiculous, they think trashing other actresses will make their idol look better.

  • BL

    You all are pathetic hiding behind a computer screen throwing insults. Lea is a strong, beautiful woman and I’m glad to see someone like her in the business today. Her talent and grace will take her far. Keep on shining Miss Lea!

  • Robsten_Fan

    Love her anyway… :)

  • Shelly

    her “babies” are preemies

  • Diana Is Beautiful

    Lea Famewhore fans are pathetic

  • kelli

    at first i didn’t think the lea/cory relationship was genuine, but i do think it’s the real deal and will go the distance, whether their careers do or not. best of luck to them both. she seems likeable to me, although a bit uptight at times

  • Janine

    She looks so beautiful and soft! Can’t wait to read the full thing.

  • Dianacc

    WOW u certainly don’t have a sense of humor huh? Been drinking to much haterade i see.

  • Melissa

    She’s hilarious!

  • Cory is Gay

    & Lea is his homely beard

  • Mary

    I think it’s a little insensitive to her ex to say “I don’t even remember a time when he wasn’t my boyfriend. ” I mean he was her bf for a long time, supported her through the start of her career, it must hurt a little to read that.

  • c17

    Low rating, Finchel is over as of the moment, so I guess they have to appease to the Monchele fans instead.

  • Fid

    Woah, didn’t know JustJared was where racists came to unite.

    Lea Michelle seems like she’s high maintenance but so many women are, and some just hide it better. She seems like a genuinely nice person though, behind her drama queen ways and if you think she’s ugly I’d like to see you post your photo so we can make a comparison because guzzling those 2L pops are probably not doing you any favours behind that computer screen.

    She was a big hit on Broadway since she was 12 so if her film career goes no where I’m sure she’ll continue to work on Broadway.

  • Funny

    She is beautiful, talend and is happy, while haters dont have anything better to do so they waste her time hating her.

  • Deal

    She is the real deal, haters from a certain fanbase have too much free time

  • finch

    her beak is large

  • Annie

    Didn’t remember when he wasn’t her boyfriend?
    Of course. Finn/Rachel = Cory/Lea = fake relationship.

  • Annie

    “I know that my cast and crew really enjoy working with me. That’s all that matters.”

    Yeah right, half the crew hates and even your castmates unfollowed you in twitter

  • Reality 32A

    In Lea’s mind she has 32D

  • emma

    @BL: i agree with you!

  • Narccisistic Youth

    Looks like some fans are upset because their favorite actress isn’t gay. They’re just upset by her comment on Cory. Also, they can hate on her all they want but at least we know what kind of people here are ugly on the inside.

  • Amanda

    Beautiful and talented girl, haters to the left

  • Shane

    talent ?- debateable
    beauty ? – NO!!!

  • Ashley


  • ugh

    So over this idiot. Worst interview ever. When will she shut up

  • J

    Lea is so pretty !! shut up haters!

  • JC

    for me I’m glad Lea career is so low she is now dedicated to promote a PR

  • Warren

    Lea has a sexy body and looks great on the cover.

  • Leanatic

    Shut up haters and listen to her voice while she’s singing!!!

  • Leanatic

    Shut up haters and listen to her voice while she’s singing!!!!

  • Robin

    Hollywood needs to stop with this bitch sure she can sing but stop trying to promote her as sexy, HollyWeird has a weird way of trying to make us think things that are not and she is no beauty queen

  • Nau

    She has an annoyingly shrill nasal voice. And comparing herself to Barbra Streisand? THE Barbra? Get over yourself, honey. You’ve still got a long way to go. And even then, Barbra will still be light years ahead of you. The nerve. Such a famewhore! What an ego!

  • mel

    @Lauren: why would she be jealous of someone with no talent who’s filming a movie with people who haven’t made a decent film in over a decade

  • mel

    @Annie: lol one cast member unfollowed her on twitter omg everyone must hate her…

  • Athena

    I do feel bad for her ex-boyfriend though. Weren’t they together for years after Glee started and she met Cory? She even mentioned him in a lot of interviews before? And her saying ‘I don’t even remember a time when he wasn’t my boyfriend.’ feels like she was having an emotional affair with Cory while they were together. Lost a little bit of respect for her for that.

  • Meena

    Sounds like an idiot.

  • Amber

    I’ve seen more convincing women on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

  • Lea Michele is my IDOL!

    Hey all you haters, if you fricin hate her so much stop going to websites about her just so you can post a stupid crappy comment. That’s a real low. As far as i’m concerned beauty is skin deep and ugly is to the bone so all you haters hiding behind that screen it makes you the ugliest ones… Why don’t you get a life and stop judging the crap out of everyone… This is why our world is so messed up because people are lifeless looser who spend their time hurting peoples feelings… go back to kindergarten and learn some respect… IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY DON’T SAY IT AT ALL, and don’t waste your time tearing someone else down just to make yourself feel good. SHUT UP!

  • Lea Michele is my IDOL!

    oops i didn’t mean to write that much, i guess people just need to stop the abomination. Lea is a lovely woman, who is truly in love with a wonderful man. She has great talent, beauty, and a love for everyone. oh and reminders: if you weren’t aware celebrities actually read the comments you low-life’s write, so congrats!
