Lea Michele says her “large nose” made her stand out from the crowd in high school. The Glee actress insist she has never been conventionally pretty and was regarded as a beauty when she was growing up because of her distinctive features.
She told new! magazine, “I think it’s interesting I get attention for my clothes and looks because nobody in school thought I was pretty. Their idea of perfect beauty was like a Barbie doll. I have a large nose and curly hair, and I looked different from everybody else.”
Michele, who plays preppy Rachel Berry in the TV musical drama, also revealed she has a growing tattoo collection and wants more. She said, “I seem to be building up my collection! I’ve got 10 little ones now. I have ‘I Believe’ on my wrist, which I was inspired to do after I was in Broadway show Spring Awakening, some musical notes from Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody and I talked my friends into getting ‘Imagine’ on our left feet. My mom and I also have matching butterflies on our backs. I don’t think I’m stopping at 10, though.”
