Our Dad's Were Not So Thrilled: Lauren Conrad & Lea Michele Reveal Fathers' Reaction To Topless Photo Shoots (EXCLUSIVE)

Fashion designer Lauren Conrad and Glee star Lea Michele have more in common than being small screen sirens: both their fathers struggled with their famous daughters stripping down for magazine covers!

"Oh, I died for your Glamour shoot," Lea, 25, gushed to Lauren, 26, during an exclusive interview with Celebuzz at the LACOSTE L!VE desert pool party in Palm Springs, Calif., on April 14 -- an event part of the Coachella festivities.

Whilst both dishing about how they get their amazing bodies, Lea -- who plays Rachel Berry on the hit Fox show -- paused to compliment The Hills star on her recent topless cover.

"The inside shots are so beautiful," Lea said.

"Thank you!" replied Lauren sweetly, before confessing: "My dad's not so thrilled about it!"

Lea, who in the past has appeared in GQ and Britain's Marie Claire, found herself in the same position.

Her dad, delicatessen owner Marc Sarfati, and Lauren's father Jim Conrad, an architect, found looking at their scantily-clad children a tough task, both revealed in the middle of our exclusive chat -- which become more of a back-and-forth between the small screen stars and pals!

"When I did GQ, my dad wasn't so thrilled either," said Lea, giggling, as she tried to reassure Lauren, who complimented her pal right back.

"I even told my mom (Kathy) not to tell him!" Lauren responded. "That was my only thing. When I did it I was like, 'Don't tell dad!'"

But despite having bared more than most cover girls, the pair was modest about their sexy magazine spreads.

Lea told Lauren: "You're looked like Bridget Bardot! I felt like it was so sexy. When I was reading it in public, I had to hide it. I was reading it at the airport (and I had to) fold it back because I felt uncomfortable!"

"So did I!" Lauren confessed, adding: "I've been traveling a lot so I run by them every time I see it at an airport!"

Celebuzz will have more from our exclusive chat with Lea and Lauren, who both attended the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., at the weekend.

The pair dished on their secrets to getting in bikini and cover girl shape -- so be sure to check back later!

    Dianna has addressed her sexuality and stated she was straight. The night she wore the "Likes Girls" shirt, she posted on tumblr and wrote that she was doing it in support of LGBT rights, and said she was straight, but hoped if she were gay, people would treat her the same.

  • haha no
    haha no

    They have NEVER stated they werent gay. In fact, they have never directly addressed their sexuality

    No dad should ever be okay with seeing his daughter doing nude photo shoots or nude scenes. Of course it's their daughter's life to make choices about what they do or do not wear but a good dad will always have issue with it. I'm not really sure what the rest of your post has to do about dad's not approving though...

  • funny

    This article makes me think Lea is not completely heterosexual. Come out already and do not hide your love for Dianna A.

    Their fathers need to grow up posing nude/doing nude scenes is part of being in the entertainment business. Joanne Wodward for example didn't appear on film nude until age 37 after 4 pregnancies and 3 live births in the movie Rachel Rachel of course one of her nude scenes in that is when the Character is having a uterine cycst removed which had to be a painful sequence for Ms Woodward to shoot as she had miscarried her first pregnancy 9 years earlier during her & Paul's London Honeymoon and the prosidure to remove a miscarriage is simillar depending on how far along the pregnancy was
