With Season 5 of Glee now wrapped up, Lea Michele has been out and about promoting new book Brunette Ambition. And naturally a stop by Chelsea Lately last night turned into an opportunity for the actress-singer to speak off the cuff about a few topics, such as her family-approved underage drinking as a kid.

“I’m Italian, so it was like at the dinner table it would be Pellegrino, like a huge jug of soda and a huge thing of wine,” Lea explained to host Chelsea Handler. “Then growing up, I’d be having dinner with my boyfriend and his parents, and I’d be like, ‘Where’s the wine? Like, pass the wine!'”

She then detailed a meeting at age 15 with a manager who advised her to get plastic surgery.

“She was like, ‘How old are you?’ I was like, ’13.’ She was like, ‘Great — as soon as you turn 15, it’s time for a nose job’,” Michele explained.

Needless to say, Michele and her mother didn’t sign up with the manager, and Lea had a choice zinger for the woman, in retrospect: “Obviously I didn’t get it done. And wherever she is, she can go fuck herself!”
