Lea Michele Reveals: I Had To Change My Real Name Because I Was Bullied

Thu, December 8, 2011 9:14am EST by 2 Comments

The ‘Glee’ star has been very vocal about her zero tolerance of bullying but did you know this gorgeous star was once called ‘fat’ and ‘farty’?

Lea Michele definitely gets the last laugh. The 25-year-old stunner in a super sexy gold lacy mini dress appeared on Late Night With Jay Leno on Dec. 7 to promote her new movie New Year’s Eve and she revealed that ‘Michele’ is NOT her last name!

“Sarfati. That’s my real last name,” Lea shockingly said. “I don’t use it a lot because I got Lea So-fatty, Lea So-farty at school. So when I was little and I went on my first audition they were like, ‘And may we have your name,’ and I was like Lea Michele. And I’ve been Lea Michele ever since.'”

Wow, we absolutely love Lea’s honesty and we can’t believe that she went through that. Lea is among other stars like Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez who say they were bullied growing up. We also love her revealing what a fantastically toned pair of legs she has. Who knew she had one of the best pair of gams in Hollywood!

Do you feel better knowing that even your favorite, intelligent, talented and beautiful celebs had a tough time too? Next time you’re feeling down, let these girls be an inspiration to follow your dreams too!
