Goodness, what would Rachel Berry say? Glee star Lea Michele bares almost all in a photo shoot for the November issue of Marie Claire UK. Maybe she took those lessons Rachel learned in the "Britney/Brittany" episode to heart?

Probably not. She's just being herself! "My school was a bit like 'Gossip Girl' in that there was a lot of money and we didn’t have as much. It was very clear towards the end of school that I was different to those people and I didn’t like the things that they liked. I would go to parties and the best part of going would be the leaving. I would go to a party because I felt that’s what I should be doing. I’m such a loser!" Sounds a lot like what Rachel Berry might say.

Lea isn't all Rachel though. There are her tattoos (nine of them) and, obviously, her wardrobe choices. Plus, she's nice! (We don't believe those diva rumors!) Celebrity hairstylist Mark Townsend, who’s worked with the likes of Natalie Portman and Reese Witherspoon, formed an instant bond with Marie Claire UK's newest cover girl.

"She had me laughing from the moment I turned on my blow-dryer," he says. "Even when the power failed and we had to use outside generators for my curling irons!"
