Glee's Lea MicheleBy now, most of us have watched or at least heard of the Fox hit television show “Glee.” Although I only recently discovered this gem, I’m completely hooked and can’t wait for the new season. This show is filled with a colorful array of characters who each have their dramas and issues to deal with, as per usual for a high school based show. However, it’s off-screen where its main star has dealt with her own insecurities and managed to emerge brighter than anyone would have thought.

Lea Michele, the lead female star of the show, is not shy when talking about her nose. Yes, it’s prominent, and yes, she knows that cosmetic plastic surgery can help her achieve a more “normal” looking nose. In a recent Harper’s Bazaar interview, Michele states, “How many managers told me, 'Get a nose job. You're not pretty enough'?” A hurtful and discouraging way to enter show business for many and possibly causing Michele to feel a bit weary, she has managed to come out on top. If anything, this only caused her to be more determined and prove them all wrong.

Instead of taking a trip to the first Beverly Hills plastic surgeon she could find, Michele has embraced her looks and has become Glee’s shining star – big nose and all! She has accepted what she looks like and chooses not to change it. “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,” she adds in the same interview. She’s a beautiful person and her confidence only makes her that much more appealing. However, she does state that she in no way thinks it’s the right choice for everyone. Each person has his/her own thoughts and every right to decide if plastic surgery is right for him/her. Not undergoing surgery is her choice. 

Other stars like Barbara Streisand and Owen Wilson have also been in the spotlight in regards to their large noses, and have both been very vocal about not wanting to change their appearance. For them, their nose is part of what makes them, them! In Michele’s case, this could very well be how she is remembered in years to come, but something tells me that her singing talents may outshine the nose.

Now if only I could get over that tiny little hump on my nose and just be happy with it!
