Lea Michele Shows Skin in Sexy Cosmo Cover

'Glee' Steams Up GQ
Behind the scenes of the sexy shoot!
Lea Michele’s showing off her body once again on a magazine cover, though this time the chances of parent groups freaking out over it are much less.

Michele, who enraged moms and dads across the world with her steamy GQ shoot last year, is the cover girl for the March issue of Cosmopolitan, and the skin-to-clothing ratio is once again quite askew. On the cover, Lea is rocking a remarkably deep-cut top, revealing a whole lot of chest all the way down to her belly button.

Skin aside, Lea offered up this little tidbit to Cosmo in regards to where she thought her career would wind up:

“I knew I wasn’t going to end up on a Disney half-hour show. I mean, look at me! I don’t look like those girls. I just wanted to do a guest spot, like on Grey’s Anatomy.”

The steamy GQ cover and photo shoot riled up many, who felt that the sexualized nature of the pictorial went too far, as much of the core Glee audience is on the young side. Parents and watchdog groups weren’t the only ones who took offense, as Dianna Agron — who was in the photos with Lea — later apologized for the shoot, saying on her blog: ““I am sorry. If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention.”
