Is 'Glee' Star Lea Michele An Ugly Duckling In Disguise — She Was Pressured To Get A Nose Job, But Said 'No Way!'

Lea Michele’s unique beauty wasn’t always embraced by millions and now she’s opening up about the nose job that she wouldn’t give in to!

When we watch Glee star Lea Michele, 23, do her musical song and dance numbers, we can’t help but be mesmerized by her ridiculous talent AND stunning looks. We were shocked to hear that she was once looked upon as an ugly ducking who was almost forced into rhinoplasty!

“I was one of the only girls in my high school that didn’t get one,” Michele said. “And if anybody needed it, I probably did. But my mom always told me, growing up, ‘Barbra Streisand didn’t get a nose job. You’re not getting a nose job.’ And I didn’t.”

Kids and teens are teased and picked on everyday for their appearance and Lea faced constant ridicule for her nose, which now is signature to her beauty. The thought of her with anything less makes us shiver, but thankfully Lea’s mom set her straight on keeping a healthy body image before she made a big mistake!

Lea has never regretted her decision to keep her natural born beauty and hopes it will inspire and encourage others to stay true to themselves.

“I’m proud to be on a positive show and to be a voice for girls and say, ‘You don’t need to look like everybody else. Love who you are.’”

We love you, Lea! What a great role model!

I think she is absolutely beautiful, and whoever says she isn’t they obviously don’t know what beauty is….

Shes gorgeous and seems like a very genuine person too. The entire package. We need more women who are proud of their unique and beautiful look, who don’t feel they need to be Barbieized.

She’d look better if she got her whole face replaced. She is not cute and not that amazing of a singer. Like she CAN sing, but she’s not better than anyone else. She’s just….okay.

Katie, really? You’re probably without even 10% of her beauty. After that whole article all you can do is criticize her? Looks like jealousy to me! Good for Lea Michele, she is talented and beautiful… inside and out!
