“Lea Michele is the sweetest” sings “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy
Hollywoodnews.com: Lea Michele is no Angelina Jolie, no Lady Gaga, no Madonna. Translation: She’s no diva and so very down to earth.
“Glee” creator Ryan Murphy is letting the media know that his Michele, 23, doesn’t cause ripples on the set.
“[The rumors are] not accurate and not true at all,” Murphy tells PEOPLE “Lea is the sweetest, most professional girl. She’s incredibly kind and she’s always on time and she’s always with her cast hanging out. They’re all close.”
And as far as the gossip, Murphy tells Michele to nip and tuck them away.
“I told Lea this would happen to her in July of last year. Just wait, people will start to write untruths,” says Murphy. “I told her, ‘Keep your chin up and it just happens. It’s happened to me and it’s happened to everyone. So don’t pay attention to it.’ But it’s definitely not true. Lea is great.”
Some wild news to hit the internet recently linked Michele to her 31-year old co-star Matthew Morrison who plays her “Glee” instructor Mr. Shuester on the show. Morrison deep-sixed the rumors in an interview with Parade:
“There’s the one about Lea [Michele] and myself, and we were literally on set and I got a call from my publicist, and she got a call a minute later and we looked at each other like, ‘What the f–?’ It’s so laughable. And now there’s this one about my ex-fiancee going to the tabloids, which so isn’t true. I have a great relationship with her. I feel like I can handle this stuff because I don’t really care. I’ve never gotten into tabloids and I don’t really care about it now, but I just feel bad for other people in my life who are getting dragged into it. It just kinda sucks.”
