Hollywood's notorious for being brutal about physical appearance, as "Glee" star Lea Michele knows all too well.
In the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar, the actress recounts crude comments she got while pursuing showbiz.
"How many managers told me, ‘Get a nose job. You’re not pretty enough’? But I proved them wrong," Michele tells the magazine. “I’m five foot three. I don’t look like a lot of other people, you know what I mean? I look like I’m 12.”
But unlike so many Hollywood heavyweights, Michele resisted altering her face, and her star is rising.
The “Glee” movie hits theaters in 3-D this month. Laughs Michele, “My nose is going to look fabulous.”
