Lea Michele: “If I Can Change My Body, Anybody Can.”


Lea Michele covers the “special wellness issue” of People Magazine, which is probably geared to all of us doing some pre-holiday body shaming. The photo they chose of her for the cover looks a bit overzealous (also, just sitting bare-butt on wood? C’mon). She says some bland stuff about loving yourself, and while she used to be a vegan, she’s since re-added meat into her diet. Lea also isn’t humble when it comes to her body image, which I guess is refreshing considering that she could put herself down and shame herself. She loves herself. And, her body!

On gaining weight when she first did Glee
I had more time in my trailer, more time in my car, and less time walking around. That’s when I realized how important it was for me, personally, to include activities and movement in my daily life.

She’s very fit now
[I’m in] the best place I’ve ever been. If I can do it, an Italian girl from the Bronx? Are you kidding me? Anybody can do it.

She got in shape on the broadway show Spring Awakening in 2006
[Jonathan Groff and I] would even do bikram yoga in between shows sometimes. That’s when I realized ‘Oh, I’m actually kind of good at this.’ We’d rock it out on stage during the day, then go to class together, and it really built my confidence. My workouts have to be good for my soul as well. If my brain can’t get relaxed at the same time, then it’s not for me.

On getting through dark moments, like Cory Monteith’s death
You always have to have faith, because life is going to throw things at you. You have to trust that there is a plan. I really pride myself on the people I surround myself with and how I take care of myself, so my ground is table beneath me.

Her diet involves some meat and being persistent
[She eats meat] as long as it’s coming from good places. The best lesson I’ve ever learned is, Who cares if people [servers] think you’re annoying? Tell them to use less salt. Tell them to use less butter. The worse they can do is say no.

On wellness
It’s so important to do things for yourself – because the better you are, the better you can be for the people in your life. It’s so important for me to stress that being healthy is not about being a gym rat. It’s not about being 90 lbs. This is really how I live every single day.

“If I can do it anyone can” is a weird attitude to have, and probably suggests she’s in a big ol celebrity bubble. She thinks what she’s saying sound “accessible,” but she actually has some real Gwyneth Paltrow outoftouchness going on. Hey, at least she’s putting HERSELF FIRST…the big mantra of wellness. LOL.

Lea Michele Gets Naked For Women’s Health

Screen Shot 2016-08-01 at 11.52.48 AM

Lea Michele got naked for Women’s Health– and for HERSELF.

The Glee alum left her clothes (and inhibitions) at the door to answer a couple questions for the magazine, along with giving them a couple snaps of her Soul Cycle bod (which the magazine makes a point to communicate that she’s IN LOVE WITH). Check out some highlights:

On where she’s at, physically: ‘When I left Glee [the hit musical-comedy drama that was made for teens but became the secret guilty pleasure for adults too], I needed something to replace all the dancing about I was doing,’ she says. ‘Right now, I feel physically in my best shape and emotionally in my best place.’

On her love of Soul Cycle: ‘Initially I didn’t think that I would get into all that either. But let me tell you, I’m now in the front row singing and clapping along. I’m not the kind of person who would go to the gym. For me, working out has to be good for my mind too, and when I leave, the endorphins are buzzing, I’m glowing and I feel like I can take on the world.’

What she “splurges” on: ‘When I say I splurge – that’s pizza, mac and cheese, pasta; it’s not McDonald’s. Look everyone can do whatever they want, this is just what I do.’

You can read the whole piece HERE.

Now, I’m not a huge fan of Lea, but I do agree that having a workout you’re into and a lifestyle that isn’t too oppressive is pretty key. You can pick up the whole magazine on newsstands August 3rd, if you’re so inclined…

Lea Michele Is Single Again

Screen Shot 2016-07-08 at 9.17.39 AM
Lea Michele is officially single again!

The former Glee star and costar/life lover Robert Buckley have split after a few months of dating, which is actually kind of surprising. Lea’s a long-term dater, and I feel like once she gets into a thing, it’s for a long time.

The pair met through mutual friends after Lea’s split with Matthew Paetz, but weirdly enough, they also got cast in the Hulu sci-fi series Dimension 404 together where…OF COURSE they just so happen to play love interests.

A source tells PEOPLE that the split was mutual and the pair are still friends.

Sorry, gurl.

Lea Michele Is Off The Market!

This is Lea Michele‘s new piece- One Tree Hill and iZombie actor Robert Buckley.

And yeah, he looks just blandly handsome enough to be a CW star, doesn’t he? Apparently they met through mutual friends but the fates were sealed when the two were spotted getting cozy on a dinner date at Milo & Olive in Santa Monica on Monday.

“They were sitting at the bar all cuddly,” an eyewitness says. “He pushed her chair in for her and everything.”

“They were interlocked the whole time they were sitting at the counter, like arms wrapped around each other at their seats and rubbing each other’s backs,” a second onlooker adds. “At one point … they had either just kissed or were super close talking.”

Fans on Twitter say Michele, 29, and Buckley, 35, have been liking each other’s posts on Instagram in recent weeks, which is the true sign of bangability/flirtation. Who knows? Honestly, I think both of these people are super boring, and Lea Michele seems to date kinda bland dudes to begin with. A match made in heaven?
