“To truly believe in yourself and love who you are. We sometimes say it, but truly practicing real self-love is the most empowering thing you can do for yourself.” — Lea Michele (L’Oréal Paris)
Lea Michele on the One Thing She'd Change About Herself
Why is it important for you to be involved with L’Oréal’s Women of Worth program?
My mother always told me, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for everything.” It’s such an honor being a part of L’Oréal Paris’s WOW campaign. I had the pleasure of attending the event this past November and it was one of the most inspiring and beautiful nights I’ve ever experienced. It made me even more proud and honored to be a part of the L’Oréal Paris family.
Who do you personally consider to be your number one woman of worth?
I would definitely have to say my mother. She is the strongest woman I’ve ever met. She’s endured so much in her life and she’s still the most empowered woman I know. She has taught me so much and gotten me through so much.
Beyond messages of self-worth and acceptance, what do you think is the most important message women these days need to hear?
To truly believe in yourself and love who you are. We sometimes say it, but truly practicing real self-love is the most empowering thing you can do for yourself.
What beauty products do you rely on to give you self-confidence?
I have my everyday products that I love. My L’Oréal Paris mascara is my favorite product. Sometimes I want to let my skin breathe and not wear any makeup, so I just put on mascara and feel beautiful.
What’s your take on the “Can a woman ever really have it all?” discussion?
I believe you can have it all, as long as you believe in yourself and love what you do.
If you could interview one woman in the present or in the past, who would it be?
I would love to have met Judy Garland.
Who’s your favorite fictional heroine and why?
Katniss from The Hunger Games is so strong and fearless!
We could all strive for some self-improvement every now and then. If you could change one thing about yourself (physical or otherwise), what would it be?
I’m a perfectionist. Sometimes I wish I could be more laid-back. But working hard and being how I am is what has gotten me to where I am today, and I’m proud of that.

I’ve laughed harder, and cried harder, with Jonathan than I have with anyone else. We’ve been kicked out of Broadway shows for falling into fits of giggles in the audience, and I’ve literally shown up on his doorstep with my heart broken. He always helps put myself together. After one particularly rough episode with a guy, Jonathan wrote me this incredibly nice letter, in which he told me that I would find someone amazing. He was going away on vacation and so he gave me a task to complete while he was gone, since he knew I would miss him like crazy and needed distractions. He instructed me to watch every single Meryl Streep movie while he was gone - and said that there would be a quiz when he returned. (x)
