Lea Michele (Rachel) is an inspiration to many people in the entertainment industry and around the world, but where does the Glee star turn when she wants to be inspired by one of her fellow actresses? That’d be Hunger Games’ leading lady, Jennifer Lawrence. Join the club, Lea, we all love J.Law!
In the video from Hollyscoop above, we get a little more insight into why Lea is so enamored with Jen, who won a Best Actress Oscar in 2013 for her role in Silver Linings Playbook. “Professionally there are so many people I look up to,” Lea states. “I believe personal and professional role models are very important and always keep you inspired. I love Barbra Streisand and I also love Jennifer Lawrence.”
Lea’s love of Babs goes way back, but we never knew that she holds Jennifer in such high regard as well. So what is it about the 23-year-old Kentucky native that Lea loves? “I think she’s an amazing actress and a very strong and outspoken woman,” the Glee gal explains. Those are the kind of women who I admire so much.”
We totally agree with Lea’s assessment of J.Law, and even though Jen is rumored to be taking a bit of a break from Hollywood after a whirlwind few years (or so says that “rascal” Harvey Weinstein) we hope that one day Lea and Jennifer might work together. Hunger Games: The Musical? Count us in!
