TWIST News: Lea Michele spills on how bullies changed her career!


Hey girls,

Glee's Lea Michele, whose real name is Lea Michele Sarfati, confessed that she doesn't use her last name because she was bullied in school! She spilled, "I don't use [Sarfati] a lot because I got 'So fatty!' and 'So farty!' in school. So when I was little and went on my first audition, they were like, 'May I have your name?' and I was like, 'Lea Michele.' I've been Lea Michele ever since!"
