Lea Michele Lays Bare for Women’s Health UK

“That body’s banging.” – Lea Michele

Honestly, we were thinking the same thing as Lea Michele strips down completely for Women’s Health U.K. magazine. A series of strategic leg crosses and handheld bosom blockers makeup Lea’s tasteful cover on the Brits’ Naked Issue.

The September issue will feature Michele’s bare bod and an exclusive interview with the actress on her health, exercise regiment and hope to cope with those unavoidable down days.

As a former star of the musical television series that rose to cult status among misfit teenagers and parents alike, Glee, Lea admits, “When I left Glee, I needed something to replace all the dancing about I was doing.”

As of now, the actress confidently asserts, “I feel physically in my best shape and emotionally in my best place.”

As we look over the magazine’s photographs, we can’t help but notice one particular tattoo featured. A small, but prominent, script writing of ‘Finn’ located on her left hip. Finn Hudson. Cory Monteith’s character on Glee, who fell in love with Lea’s on-screen character and then off-screen personality. The two stars were enveloped in what appears a serious relationship before the Canadian actor’s untimely death in 2013.

The new ink is the second tattoo Lea has gotten as a tribute to Cory. About four months ago, Michele posted a photo to Instagram of a small ‘5’ tattoo that is widely known to allude to Finn’s jersey as he played a high school quarterback during the series.

In addition to Lea’s latest ink, also prominent on her Instagram feed is the actress’ strict SoulCycle regiment. The actress tells Women’s Health that she attends SoulCycle classes every other day near her home in Brentwood, LA. Lea raves about the widely popular spinning franchise: “For me, working out has to be good for my mind too, and when I leave, the endorphins are buzzing, I’m glowing and I feel like I can take on the world.”

Helping along this ‘glowing’ feeling is Michele’s personal kitchen cupboard, which she says, “I keep my home almost completely gluten free and vegan, which I think is important because when you reach for a snack at home, then you’re getting something healthy.”

And when a few dark days undoubtedly roll in, Lea admits, “I accept those days as much as the happy ones,” but then providing her own remedy, “Make some macaroni cheese, call my mum, pour a glass of red wine and watch some reality television. There’s nothing that can’t fix.”

Read the rest of Lea’s interview in Women’s Health U.K. when it hits stands this Wednesday, August 3rd!
