Shooting to fame as Rachel Berry on Glee, Lea Michele has become quite a household name. But the actress admits there were plenty of obstacles thrown her way — including pressure to change her looks.

“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,” she reveals in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar, adding that she’s confident in her own skin and glad she never got a nose job.

“How many managers told me, ‘Get a nose job. You’re not pretty enough’? But I proved them wrong!”

Although Lea is incredibly happy with her success, she’s not fond of what’s being written about her in the tabloids — including her reported diva-like behavior.

“I’ve learned some lessons. But people are going to say what they want to say. I know who I am, and I’m not perfect.”

For now, she is looking forward to the future and life after Glee, adding:

“Glee is only the beginning. I plan on playing every role on Broadway…I want to do movies, make music.”
