Raven waves, bold brows and sultry smoky eyes, Lea Michele gives us her signature 'diva' stare on the cover of Marie Claire.

The actress talks her so-called diva attitude, her romance with costar, and love interest on the show, Cory Monteith, and her sexy style in the fashion mags January issue.

The Glee star, who knows how to work the red carpet and strike a perfect pose, has an awe-inspiring confidence that sometimes gets mistaken for cockiness. She says, “I am a very outspoken person, and if something makes me uncomfortable, you will know that it makes be uncomfortable, but that’s as far as it goes. I can assure you that [diva rumors] aren’t real. It’s super-frustrating sometimes, and I used to fight back, but now I feel like, You can think what you want to think about me – that’s OK. I have the most amazing fans, friends, and family members who have stood by me, and I know that my cast and crew really enjoy working with me. That’s all that matters.”

Michele says of real life and Glee life BF, Cory Monteith, better known as Finn Hudson, “I don’t even remember a time when he wasn’t my boyfriend. No one knows me better than Cory. No one knows what it’s been like to go through this more than he does. Feeling like you have that net underneath you allows you to jump higher and go farther. He makes me feel like I can do anything. For the first time in my life, I feel really, really settled and happy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.”

When asked about her recently adapted va-va-voom J.Lo vibe, Michele says, “These babies are great” [she jokes, pointing to her breasts]. They are my prizewinners. For a while they were out and about, showing off on Broadway every night, then they came to L.A. and were like, ‘No one else looks like me here!’ They were nervous to make their appearance but feel they’ve earned their place. So they asked if they could come out, and I was like, ‘All right, you guys.’ They definitely rose to the occasion, so I’m going to continue to give them more opportunities.”
