Lea Michele Is Nice Now And Can Allegedly Read
Of all people you’d think Lea Michele would be familiar with the Streisand Effect and I don’t mean when you star in a Broadway play about a young, starry eyed up-and-comer and instantly become the “greatest star.” I mean when you are already the “greatest star” and try to dispel a long-standing rumor but only wind up reminding everybody that you’re a mean girl who (allegedly) can’t read. Lea’s big Funny Girl debut is next week, and for those unable to attend, Lea’s given an interview to The New York Times to let us know just what we’ll be missing— a wiser, more generous, and mature leader who is going to do “a good job when the camera’s rolling, but also when it’s not.” And in case you’re asking, she may not be able to read a room, but she absolutely can (allegedly) read a book. Need proof? She must have read The Feminine Mystique because how else would she know that it’s sexist to joke about her illiteracy?
