Lea Michele considers posing for Playboy to show off her thin, vegan body


Back when I finally put the name “Lea Michele” to a face – which was probably about six months ago – I did think Lea was cute in a pageant girl sort of way. She’s the kind of girl who manages a big fake smile while her eyes say I’m a STAR and I will shank you if refuse to acknowledge that.” She tended to dress like a pageant girl too, which is to say, OLD. She’s all of 24 years old, and I’m sure she would look it if you got the girl into a pair of jeans and wiped all of that makeup off of her, but unfortunately, she seems to take style tips largely from Ivana Trump. All of this to say, Lea needs an image reboot, and according to In Touch Weekly, Lea is considering a reboot in the form of a Playboy pictorial, all to show off her new dramatically thin vegan body:

A slimmed down Lea Michele could go from glee club to the Grotto! The Glee star recently lost weight on a vegan diet. And according to a friend, she’s been offered more than $500,000 to show off her new body in Playboy, although her rep denies the story.

“Lea looks gorgeous, and obviously, Playboy noticed,” the friend says. “She loves her new look, and she might do it if she thought it would boost her career.”

Lea has had plenty of experience with nudity – she did a topless scene live for more than a year in Spring Awakening on Broadway – “It’s not uncomfortable for me at all,” she said.

Yeah, her rep denies the story. But if Lea truly doesn’t have a problem with nudity in general, a Playboy shoot could be the way that she breaks from the Glee herd for the kind of mainstream name-recognition she already thinks she has. However, I do think her body looked so much cuter before, whenever it was, six months ago. I don’t buy that going vegan in a healthy way makes you lose so much weight so fast. She either did it in an unhealthy way, or “vegan” is code for “eating disorder.”

    She’s not as attractive as she thinks she is.

  2. jen says:

    Do straight guys find her attractive?

  3. Samigirl says:

    She looked much better with a little meat on her bones.

  4. Dorothy says:

    She is an interesting looking person, but she lost too much weight and it makes her nose look way bigger than it did before!

    I LOVE Glee and can’t wait until next week!!

  5. malachais says:

    She’s pretty, but she’s not gorgeous IMO.

  6. Sarah says:

    She’s far too thin now. Makes her look very old. She looked so much better with a little meat and even then she was still a thin girl.

  7. wonderful says:

    She looked better before – she was thin still but in that awesome athletic way. Now the features in her face are too prominent and it looks painful.

  8. Bam Bam says:

    I hope she doesn’t do it, she’s a kids role model right now as a part of Glee, and there are plenty of opportunities for her to show of her body with out removing her clothes.

  9. Marjalane says:

    I think a little more weight helped her top conceal her nasty, better than you, attitude. Now all I see is a hard looking bitch.

  10. prettyme says:

    who is she???do i have to know her?

  11. chasingadalia says:

    Her new body disappoints me.

    Also, topless scene in “Spring Awakening” is *very* different from posing in Playboy.

  12. serena says:

    Think she looks a bit lollypop-esque now but I do love that green dress, wonder where/who it’s from?

  13. Hollowdoll says:

    Yeah, it’s a shame, she look so much cuter before. Now she’s all angles and looks harsh.

  14. Jenny says:

    Is it just me, or does her face look completely different in every photo?

  15. Kitten says:

    I don’t watch that show but from the pics, I think she looked better with weight on her. I think chicks with strong facial features need the weight in their face to balance everything out..

  16. kelbear says:

    Yeah she would look better 10lbs heavier.

  17. Lynnie says:

    I have no clue who this chick is, but I refuuse to believe she’s only 24.

  18. heavenasia says:

    Thank God for makeup!

  19. mamalama says:

    There’s no way I can buy the 24, either. Myabe 34? And that’s sad… But I do love that green/nude dress.

  20. Cam says:

    Of course she looked much much better before, now her nose seems bigger and her strong features make her look older. But yes, she’s an interesting looking person, maybe if she finds the right look I would dare to call her “pretty”.

    Anyway, I like her… I think she’s very talented and ‘different’. So I hope this is BS, Playboy will definitely turn down the ‘smart and talented’ image I have of her.

    UPDATE: That green dress is gorgeous, love it.

  21. martin says:

    Hmmm… Playboy (you say)… from the neck down would be nice!


  22. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    I just do not like her. She has a very high impression of herself.

  23. Shayna says:

    I’ve been vegan for 6 years…why am I not that skinny?!

  24. Scarlett says:

    Lea Michele isn’t even vegetarian, let alone vegan. She eats fish.

  25. Bodhi says:

    That green dress is so pretty! The girl in it… not so much…

  26. Laurie says:

    She lost too much weight (I highly doubt from a vegan diet). If she keeps it up, it WILL affect Glee’s ratings. People want to see a normal looking “teenager” on the show – not some skinny glamour queen wannabe.

  27. Shaniqua says:

    Oh my word. She has gotten so skinny.

  28. Jill says:

    Love love love her white and silver outfit!

  29. kim says:

    Ive been Vegan for decades and it DOES NOT make you lose dramatic amounts of weight. Even when you first turn vegan a bunch of weight is not going to drop off. She has an eating disorder or simply isnt eating to have lost this amount of weight on purpose. Yet another desperate mildly talented, starlet sucked in to pose for Playboy to prove what? That they are thin? pretty? Desperate & stupid is more like it. Her parents must be so proud =(

  30. JJS says:

    She is not pretty. Her nose it too big and she looks cross-eyed. She doesn’t sing all that well either. She is why I don’t watch Glee. She annoys the hell out of me.

  31. iKat says:

    Rep denied this… so I doubt she ever did consider posing for Playboy.

    I LOVE her makeup in the 2nd photo! But her hair is confusing me… Attempting Ombre hair but failing? Not sure.

  32. Katy says:

    She is not attractive at all. Her face reminds me of a dragqueen.

  33. Keyanna says:


  34. Jeri says:

    So far, she’s a hell of a lot better 24 then Lindsay.

  35. LBees says:

    Yuh-oh. I smell “lead actress” on her. She’s probably trying to capitalize on Glee’s success and put herself out there as the new “IT” girl, obv weight loss is a big part of getting A roles (any roles, really).

    She looks good (!?) but really thin. Too thin for my taste (a breast is nice here and there). And I don’t think this is a “vegan” diet… this is the result of an extremely limited caloric intake coupled with extensive exercise for toning. (Maybe).

    She’s probably upped her protein intake and lowered or eliminated carbs. Calories in, calories out.

  36. jzhz says:

    I think it’s unnatural when your waist is smaller than your head.

  37. lucy2 says:

    I’m starting to dislike her, which I don’t want to do because I like Glee and she is really talented, amazing voice.

    But she has gotten WAY too thin, and it does not look good on her.

  38. Lisa says:

    She does *not* look good. Physically, she is too skinny, and her face looks strange. Emotionally, the look on her face is both painful to look at and ridiculous (c’mon — EAT something). Lisa Edelstein (Cuddy on House) is a vegan and looks fantastic, IMO, so it can be done. Whatever Lea is doing is not making her look fantastic!

  39. Lukie says:

    I was a vegan for a summer and worked out 4 days a week. I dropped 30 pounds in 3 months.

    My friend was boxing and bike riding when she become a vegan and dropped 20-something pounds.

    So for all of you that don’t think you can lose weight fast if you become a vegan, if you were eating kinda crappy and unfocused, then you start exercising and become a healthy vegan, you can drop some pounds pretty fast, especially if you had weight to lose in the first place.

    This chick is not gorgeous, why is every chick in hollywood is considered gorgeous? People be honest

  42. lisa says:

    It seems like fame has gone a bit to her head..as well as some of the other cast members..this is the beginning.

    They should all go back to being the way they were..now we see them everywhere..

    Sorry she is getting on my nerves and so are the others.. overexposure..

  43. Ruby Red Lips says:

    I’m sure a hollywood ‘vegan’ diet is not the same as a non-celeb’s vegan diet, hence the drastic weight loss

    C’mon peops in Hollywood, nothing is ever true! Esp diet and exercise tales, they’re all drugs and starvation

  44. neema says:

    She’s got to show off the good somehow and prove beyond a shadow of her manjaw that she’s actually female.

  45. DiMi says:

    She’s extremely talented, but I think she has an eating disorder if not anorexia. She looks awful, but she’s getting all sorts of attention for being so skinny so the problem continues…

  46. Jeri says:

    I think she looks good and I don’t think she should get plastic surgery to look “conventally pretty.”

    She has lost weight but dancing all day in her job might have something to do with that.

    I know she’s getting a rep as a DIVA but so far I’m still giving her the benefit of the doubt.

  47. Ruffian9 says:

    Don’t wanna see it, sweetheart.

  48. Thank you for every other informative site. Where else may I am getting that type of information written in such an ideal approach? I’ve a venture that I am simply now working on, and I have been on the glance out for such info.

  49. What i don’t understood is in reality how you’re now not really a lot more neatly-liked than you may be right now. You’re so intelligent. You realize thus considerably in terms of this subject, produced me individually consider it from so many varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t involved until it’s something to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your personal stuffs great. At all times care for it up!
