There’s no girl fight here — Ariana Grande and Lea Michele both have huge voices, and Lea just told HollywoodLife.com exclusively she really wants to sing with Ari!
Lea Michele may play an outcast on Scream Queens, while Ariana Grande‘s inside the sorority circle, but in real life, they’re so close. Following the Television Critics Association summer press day, Lea chatted with HollywoodLife.com and revealed that Ariana’s acting and singing really impressed her.
“Ari’s so fun, and it’s so great having her,” Lea said after the Scream Queens panel on August 6. “She’s an actress. She’s an incredible singer, but she’s a great actress. I had to do this hilarious scene with her the other day and we were just cracking up.”
Ariana takes on the role of Chanel #2, a minion of the queen bee Chanel, played by Emma Roberts.
Lea, who takes on the role of Hester, an unpopular girl in a neck brace looking to join the sorority, also added, “Oh my god, I want to sing with her so bad,” but guys — it won’t be on the show. No singing on this one, but Lea said “maybe in a concert!”
Emma Roberts Makes Lea A Better Actress
Where can we sign up? Lea also added that she ‘s really bonded with Emma Roberts, as we’ve been seeing on their Instagram.
“I think Emma is honestly one of the greatest actresses out there right now, and to work with her I mean, we had to do a scene yesterday,” she said. “We were in a haunted basement in some old New orleans home, i was like “Oh my God, please don’t let anything happen to me in this house! And we had to go at it. I was like, ‘Whoa, I’m going at it with someone really good.’ She challenges me as an actress. To have someone who every day comes prepared, knows her lines, and really gives it to you on every take, you have to be at your absolute best. And so she’s challenged me and pushed me to be better.”
Scream Queens airs Sept. 22 at 8PM on Fox.
