Who will Lea Michele kiss on New Year's Eve?

Many hold it as tradition to lock lips with someone when ringing in the new year, including "Glee" star Lea Michele.

And the newly single 25-year-old already has a plan in place. (Are we the only ones who can picture her "Glee" alter-ego Rachel Berry doing the exact same thing?)

“I'm a single girl, so I've brought in my best friend Jonathan [presumably, Groff] to give me my kiss on New Year's Eve," Michele told CNN Sunday.

"He's going to take one for the team and give me my kiss. We were on Broadway together, and had to make out every single night, so it'll be like old habit for me. But you've got to have somebody!”

You know, no pressure.

But before she gets to celebrate the holiday, she'll be acting in a movie all about it, as Michele stars alongside a host of actors in this weekend's release "New Year's Eve."

"This was such an awesome experience," Michele said. "On 'Glee,' it's like, five scenes in one day and doing songs. With this, we got to take our time and work on it, so I'm definitely very eager to do more films...I always want to go back to the stage, but to do films where I get to do both at once - sing and act at the same time - that's great for me."

There's a rumor going around that she's competing to do just that in an adaptation of "Les Miserables," but Michele's staying tight-lipped.

"Like I said, I want to keep doing these parts that I feel super passionate about. That's something that I really hold dear to my heart," she said. "It was my first Broadway show, and I was 8 years old, so you know...but I really feel that there's such great projects out there, and I want to go for it."

    Everyone that commented on this board (with the exception of Carol)...please grow up. If you don't like this actress/singer, why did you click on the article? I don't get why people do that? Lea is very talented, and I'm sure most of you are just jealous. Or maybe the correct word would be envyess. Don't be that way, just because she worked hard to get where she is. I think it's great! As far as the kiss....I'm a chick, and NOT g@y, but I'd give her a little smooch on the cheek for New years! 🙂

    Fortunately Groff is gay or else I'd be really jealous of Lea. 😛

      Are you 12? Let is go if you don't like something why spend time even writing negativity about it. grow up. How odd that a actress would talk about herself while being interviewed.
