Lea Michele is pretty much just who you think she is: a woman full of life, appreciative of what she has, and trying to help others.
One of the things Lea Michele is grateful for in her life is her group of friends.
“I feel like I’ve been really lucky to have found such a great group of girlfriends. I feel like competition and negativity grow hate — it’s such a common thing that you see — and I’m so grateful to have such a strong, supportive group of girls around me.”
Lea Michele throws out some special love for one friend, Kate Hudson.
“She lives her life every single day with such happiness and more than anything she’s so confident in her skin," Lea Michele says, "and I really do believe that she enjoys every day on this planet.”
Lea Michele says she tries to put the same philosophy Kate Hudson has into play in her own life. She does that by making sure she exercises.
“I’ve just been having so much fun because this is genuinely how I live my life,” Lea Michele said. “Everyone has to do things at their own pace and in their own way, but if someone can take one bit of education from this, then I’ve done my job.”
Part of the joy Lea Michele feels is from the response to her invitation for Instagram followers to join her with their own exercise goals.

“Pilates has been such an amazing change in my body,” Lea Michele said. “I think you kind of always have to re-adapt to how you’re feeling [and] where you are in your life. This is working for me right now and I’m very excited for it. It helps me do a better job at my job and it puts me in a good mood and makes me feel strong. I really love that.”
“A couple of years back I tried SoulCycle and I found it really hard,” says Michele. “I don’t know if it’s that I’m a little bit older now, but I’ve been doing spin in New Orleans and I’m really loving it.”
