Lea Michele “Loved” Getting Naked With Jonathan Groff on Broadway
Long before Rachel Berry and Jesse St. James were ever rolling around her bed, singing Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” on Glee Season 1, their real-life counterparts Lea Michele and Jonathan Groffwere getting much racier than that... And on a Broadway stage, nonetheless!
Lea and Jonathan starred as teenage lovebirds Wendla and Melchoir in the 2007 Broadway rock musical Spring Awakening, and one of their most famous scenes featured Jonathan undoing Lea’s top and exposing her naked breasts to the audience.
“[E]very night I had to do this nude scene,” cover girl Lea tellsNYLONmagazine in its September 2012 issue. “I always loved to find the one person who I knew was going to be uncomfortable — who throughout the show was cringing in their seat — and when Jonathan Groff would undo my top, I loved it!”
