The “Glee” star has signed a contract with the French cosmetics brand.
Lea Michele has snagged a contract to be the new famous face of L’Oreal, the New York Post reports.
The 26-year-old actress, who plays aspiring Broadway star Rachel Berry on Fox’s Glee, will debut as the French brand’s spokes-celebrity later this month, according to the paper, leaving no fingerprints on the source of the information.
Other celebrities who’ve inked L’Oreal contracts include Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Eva Longoria.
A rep for Michele did not immediately respond to THR‘s request for comment.
The Emmy-nominated star, who began her career in musical theater in New York before heading to Hollywood for Glee, has since developed a signature red-carpet style (dramatic, girly-girl gowns, smoldering Zoolander-esque expression) and was recently announced as a spokesmodel for Candie’s.

It’s only a few more hours until the new season of “Glee” kicks off on Fox. And with so many new faces and places to spice up our favorite song-and-dance series, it seems that anything is possible. Which seems especially true for besties Rachel and Kurt, who are embarking on some big-city dreams when the show kicks off.
Rachel will be getting put through the ringer by her dance teacher, played by a very toned Kate Hudson, at NYADA, while Kurt will be learning about sex and the city at his Vogue internship thanks to the one and only Sarah Jessica Parker. While fans will have to wait and see what does end up happening when these two hit NYC, we here at Hollywood Crush asked Lea Michele and Chris Colfer what they think a Rachel-Kurt apartment might look like if they should end up shacking up together this season.
It’s a changing of the guard at McKinley High as the reigning National Show Choir champions head back to school on “Glee” Season 4. But not only has the dynamic changed within the school — Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), Blaine (Darren Criss) and the gang are all popular thanks to their title — it’s changed within the show, now that we go back and forth between Lima, Ohio and Rachel’s (Lea Michele) new life in New York City.
Meanwhile, Michele tells Zap2it that although she’s not in the choir room with the rest of her castmates, she’s absolutely loving the show’s divide between New York and Lima.
“Oh my God, I feel amazing. I am having the best time,” she says. “This is already my favorite year so far. I love being in the new locations; I love being on the new sets — they’re so gorgeous. I love working with Chris [Colfer] and Cory [Monteith] and Dean [Geyer] and Kate [Hudson]. It’s really amazing. I miss my Glee club, but I know [we'll be together soon]. I’ve already read a script where we’re reunited.”
“Glee” Season 4 premieres Thursday, September 13 at 8 p.m. on FOX. “Glee” Season 3 is available on DVD and Blu-ray in stores now.
Celebuzz interviwed Skylar Astin recently and here’s what he said about Lea:
Think starring in a film like Pitch Perfect or TV show Glee is easy? Think again.
Pitch Perfect’s Skylar Astin– who starred in the Broadway play Spring Awakening with friend Lea Michele– told Celebuzz he realized during filming he didn’t give enough credit to how hard the Glee beauty has it.
So what did he text her from set?
“There’s a lot of moments in these kinds of movies or TV shows when you’re filming where you have to do a lot of reactionary things,” said Astin. “Sometimes the music isn’t finished and you have to play pretend in a way, like you’re putting on a play or a musical.”
“I can relate so much to that, but I texted Lea and was like, ‘I do not give you enough credit how you make everything seem so seamless on your show,’” praised Astin. “I think she’s phenomenal on Glee, the show is great, but I really have a different appreciation for what [she does.]”
