Lea Michele on Music, Cory Monteith and Being Comfortable with Her Body

Originally posted 03/04/2014 12:20PM

Lea Michele's debut album marks the former stage star's official transition to pop. But the Glee actress hasn't completely shed some of her theater habits – like being comfortable in the nude.

"I come from Broadway – everybody's naked on Broadway," Michele, who earned rave reviews as a teenager in Spring Awakening, tells Seventeen magazine for its April issue, on sale March 11.

"I like to think of myself as more granola. I'm not going to run around naked or anything like that unless I'm at my own home," she says. "Today, I walked into my backyard and was standing out there naked for a while. Don't tell: My neighbors will freak out!"

Ryan Murphy: Cory Monteith's Glee Character Would Have Become a Teacher

Originally posted 12/24/2013 11:15AM

Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy always had a vision for how the groundbreaking FOX show would end, but when Cory Monteith died in July, that vision died with him.

Murphy revealed that ending to those close to the star when he eulogized Monteith at a private memorial service shortly after his death.

Now, five months after Monteith died from a heroin and alcohol overdose, he also shares it with the world.

"The ending of Glee is something I have never shared with anyone, but I always knew it," Murphy discloses in an excerpt of the eulogy just published in Entertainment Weekly. "At the end of season 6, Lea [Michele]'s Rachel was going to have become a big Broadway star, the role she was born to play. Finn was going to have become a teacher, settled down happily in Ohio, at peace with his choice and no longer feeling like a Lima loser."

Murphy had mapped it out so clearly that he even had the last line of dialogue written in his head: "Rachel comes back to Ohio, fulfilled and yet not, and walks into Finn's glee club. 'What are you doing here?' he would ask. 'I'm home,' she would reply. Fade out. The end."
