I'm really happy about that and I'm really proud of that. I think I live that kind of lifestyle. I can proudly and happily say I'm honoured to be on television and sort of a role model for young girls. I'm showing them they don't need to get a nose job and you don't need to look exactly like all the other girls in your class, that it's OK. Letting all your different colours show is eventually really good. When I let my freak flag fly is when I got Glee.
Would I like to make an album at some point? Absolutely. But being a part of the show has challenged me as an actor in a way that now I feel there are so many different roles I want to play, and I definitely want to do film. I hope that I'm lucky enough to be a part of another television show that is as great and that I believe in as much as Glee.
I love cooking. I love having my cast members over, inviting them over to my house. I've been known to bake cookies for my crew and bring them to work. Those are things that make me feel good, but I'm a New Yorker and so I really love any chance that I can get to come home.
It's so unbelievable. I mean, when I was the Golden Globes I felt like I'd snuck into a party, or that maybe someone had given me an extra ticket or that I'd won a contest. Something like that! It's so crazy the way that everyone interacts with each other, like, "Yeah, we do this all the time," and there I am like, "This is absolutely crazy!"
I had my one interaction and now I'm good for life. At the Golden Globes, I did have Tom Hanks walk past my table and what he said to me meant a lot. I'll personally keep it private to myself for the rest of my life in my back pocket, so if I ever feel down or if I ever don't really think I can do this I can remind myself of what he said. Maybe he doesn't even remember saying it, but I do. So that was really great.
I had a mother approach me and tell me that someone came up to her daughter at school and said, "Are your mummies lesbians?" Her daughter was like, "Yeah." The mum said, "How did you have the confidence to say that?" The daughter replied, "Because, Mum, I'm like Rachel Berry." It's stuff like that I think is just so cool.
Itís called the Glee diet ó just dancing and singing 24/7, I donít go to the gym! Iím a vegetarian and Iím very energetic.
Each episode takes eight days. Ten if itís a longer, heavier episode. And we generally work about 17 hours a day. Within a day you can be doing one or two or three hours of shooting, filming, dancing and recording. Basically I try to explain to people that creating an episode of Glee is like jumping out of an airplane and falling to the ground Ė you learn your lines, you record your songs, you learn your choreography and we somehow land with our feet on the ground.
If I werenít having fun, because the work is so hard, thereís no way that I could do it. Itís incredibly challenging and itís incredibly taxing. But if it wasnít fun, I donít think that thereíd be any physical way that we could get through how difficult and strenuous it is sometimes.
We have sort of bonded together in a way, like what weíve been through no one else can really understand. We have this incredible connection as a cast. Weíre sort of inseparable. If we didnít get along the way we did, I think youíd be able to see it in these episodes. The fact that we are such a family, I think that transcends, and I do think that is one of the reasons why the show is as successful as it is.
Everyone is so fantastic. We have such great people who come on. I mean, itís like everyone that they pick is so fantastic. I had such a great time with Gwyneth [Paltrow], though. Sheís such an awesome person. I canít believe the fact that Iíve had the opportunity to work and sing with Gwyneth Paltrow. She is definitely up there as one of my favourites.
Yeah, heís (Ricky Martin) great. Iíve known him for a very, very long time. We unfortunately didnít have a lot of work to do together. But heís one of those people that I just call the perfect Glee cocktail Ė they just have all of the right things that make them perfect to be on Glee.
