Gracing the cover of Marie Claire's January 2013 issue, Broadway and GLEE star Lea Michele talks with the magazine about rumors that she is a diva-recently on FOX's GLEE TV set with Kate Hudson-as well as off.
"I am a very outspoken person, and if something makes me uncomfortable, you will know that it makes me uncomfortable, but that's as far as it goes," Michele told Marie Claire. "I can assure you that [the 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 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."
This summer, rumors emerged of a feud between Michele and GLEE guest star Kate Hudson, who was reported to have called the collaboration a "nightmare". Michele told Marie Claire that when Hudson heard about the gossip, she called Michele and said, "I just heard about that, and it f**king sucks. I want you to know I think you're amazing."
After shutting down the diva rumors, Michele discussed her plans post-GLEE. The actress is eyeing the silver screen and hopes to act in non-musical roles, following in the footsteps of stage and screen crossover stars such as Anne Hathaway and Amy Adams.
