Lea Michele wants to be a role model for girls who don’t want to look perfect.

The American actress, who plays the character of Rachel Berry in television series Glee, insists she will never go under the surgeon’s knife.

Instead the brunette beauty would prefer to show younger females that they can still be successful without needing plastic surgery.

“I’m honoured to be a role model for young girls, showing them that they don’t need to get that nose job and don’t need to look exactly like all the other girls in class,” Lea told the British magazine Closer.

The 24-year-old enjoys doing regular exercise in order to keep a slim figure and partakes in yoga, running, and even rock climbing to get the most enjoyment out of keeping fit.

However, the vegan star is adamant she will never diet, and when she desires a hearty meal she never limits herself.

“I’ll have a big Italian dinner, and don’t give a c**p because it makes me happy,” the star said. © Cover Media
