Lea Michele is a remarkably polarizing person, but there is no denying the girl’s work ethic. There is Glee, a show that requires her to learn choreography, frequently record and, oh yeah, act every day. Then there is her role in New Year’s Eve, out this Friday. Oh, and that whole summer tour the Glee cast is forced on when they are on hiatus. So it is no wonder she gets a bit nuts when she flies.
So nuts in fact, it seems like Lea and her character Rachel Berry may have far more in common than one would expect. Just hear what the 25-year-old had to say:
“Listen, if you were with me on a plane? I’m embarrassed for the people who sit next to me. I have such a regimen! I, like, pound on the face cream because your face will dry out, I get the stuff you put in your nose so no nose germs come in, I take elderberry for immunity, I wear a scarf … I mean, I go to the extreme, because I fly almost literally every other weekend.”
It’s enough to make you want to ignore the flight attendants pleas that you stop playing Words With Friends and pray it results in getting booked on another flight.
