Come on, Lea Michele.
The Shmooze is not in the habit of taking our favorite starlets to task for the silly things they say on late-night television, but Lea Michele’s chat with David Letterman last night caught our attention. Would it have killed the “Glee” star, who snagged spot #14 on Maxim’s straightforwardly salacious Hot 100 list, to show off something other than her figure?
Perhaps we’re expecting too much. It’s not Michele’s fault Maxim thinks she’s sexy, after all, and she did talk about the season finale of “Glee,” which airs tonight, and about what may or may not happen next season. She joked that living in Los Angeles has caused her to lose cred as a New Yorker. But the rest of her comments — not to mention her choice of wardrobe — seemed calculated to get the audience to think about her body.
