Glee’s Dianna Agron (Quinn Fabray) was on The Late Show last night. I have to say I found her more confident than I expected. I’ve never seen her interviewed before and prior to this my impression was that she’s a little geeky and different. Her red carpet fashion is usually conservative and not that fashionable. Plus she penned a long impressive blog entry defending that racy GQ photoshoot with her Glee costars by explaining that she was a “sheltered child” and that “if you asked me for my dream photo shoot, I’d be in a treehouse, in a wild costume, war-paint and I’d be playing with my pet dragon.” So I thought she would be a little shy, since she seems to be a thoughtful person and not your typical starlet, but she wasn’t. She was completely at ease talking to Dave. (You can watch part of the video here if you’re in the US.)
On the Late Show, Agron told a story about how her nose was broken twice. It was implied that she was explaining her nose job since she said she had a deviated septum fixed and that a doctor told her she was a mouth breather. The words “nose job” or “rhinoplasty” were not uttered though:
My Freshman year of high school… I convinced my mom to let me go to my first party. I was able to be there for an hour… instead of the girl punching the guy she wound up to the side and punched me. So that was broken nose number one…
I didn’t go to a doctor because I didn’t want to tell my mom what happened…
Apparently I found out about a year ago, because my nose was getting worse… I went to the doctor and he said “When did you break your nose? You have a horrible deviated septum. You’re a mouth breather, aren’t you?” I said “Yes I am…”
[I couldn't get it fixed at the time] because we were filming.
We were in the middle of doing this concert tour… [in NY]. We had a day off the next day so I met some of my friends out and we were dancing. And again, there was a collision of sorts. I must be turning too quickly, people don’t see me or something like that. But it’s fixed now. I’m no longer a mouth breather.

I usually hate doing these nose job and plastic surgery stories, because I’ll spend ages finding photos with the same aspect ratio to show the difference in someone’s face. Then I’ll line them up and size them the same. A change in nose shape that looks very obvious to me across multiple photos always has commenters who say there’s no difference or that it’s due to makeup or lighting. In this case the person admitted to it, though, and she had a very good explanation that seemed plausible. Plus if you look at her old nose it’s clearly broken-looking and smooshed to the side. She looks better now and her nose is shaved well. It’s not too small for her face like Jessica Biel’s new nose.
Here are photos of Dianna outside the Late Show yesterday. That dress looked better when she was sitting down. At least she wasn’t hanging out of it at the top or bottom.
