Apparently, Lea Michele’s friends call her Grandma; they obviously haven’t seen the photos of her taken by photographer Terry Richardson for the spring issue of V Magazine.
The shots feature a toned Michele gazing straight into the camera wearing skin-revealing pieces. “My friends call me Grandma, but like, Grandma’s killing it right now. I’m pretty sure Grandma nailed it in a half-naked Terry Richardson shoot, okay?” Michele told reporter Mary H.K. Choi. The nickname comes from Michele’s interests: “I don’t like things that other people like. I don’t like clubs or crazy, loud music,” Michele says in the V story. “I’d rather be in bed watching Homeland with my cat, Sheila, eating a sandwich.” Sounds like the perfect Friday night to us!
Michele also comments on how she dealt with the death of her boyfriend, fellow Glee star Cory Monteith, this past summer. She says Stevie Nicks, whom she met on the set of Glee, helped her a lot and compared the singer to a “fairy.” “She’s given me so many gifts along the way, and when I say gifts, I mean tools and advice and support.”
Glee returns Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on Fox, and Michele’s debut album, Louder, arrives Friday.
