Lea Michele Drastic Weight Loss: Too Much Pressure?


Last week, the cast of Glee resumed filming on their sophomore season.  But, leading lady and former Spring Awakening star Lea Michele looked awfully thin.  What gives?

The pressures of Hollywood have triggered drastic weight loss for celebrities such as Nicole Ritchie and Lindsay Lohan.  Does Lea Michele’s new thin look suggest that she is dealing with the same feelings?

Not so fast.

She told OK! Magazine earlier this year that her dramatic weight loss is due to her vegan diet.

“I’m a vegan,” she said. “It makes me feel really good and bright. You need a lot of energy to play spunky Rachel Berry, so I’ve tried a lot of different things — and so far, this is working.”

Let’s hope that Lea is telling the truth and that she can continue to be a great role model for young aspiring actors and singers.
