Dianna Agron: Marie Claire Cover Girl!

Dianna Agron: Marie Claire Cover Girl!

Dianna Agron keeps close to Glee costars Lea Michele and Amber Riley on the May 2011 cover of Marie Claire magazine.

Inside the issue, the 24-year-old actress opens up about her pre-Glee gig, looking for a home for her script and standing up for herself. Check it:

On her life before Glee: “In high school, I taught dance classes for 3-year-olds up to 16-year-olds, so between that and some bat mitzvah money, I saved up a pretty good nest egg to move to L.A.”

On standing her ground: “Lea [Michele] taught me how to stand up for myself more, like realizing that I can’t be in 10 places at the same time. She’s also very protective. Once, we were flying from Sydney to Melbourne when a crazy guy grabbed my face and kissed me. Lea yelled and pushed him off of me. A mean stewardess who hadn’t seen it turned around and said, ‘You two be quiet!’ And Lea yelled, ‘No, that man just kissed my friend!’”

On how she nabbed the role of Quinn: “I’d gotten a callback that said, ‘Please come back, wear something sexy’ ” not my forte ” ‘and have straight hair.’ I had an hour to get there from another audition, and I was wearing the same vintage dress ” my go-to audition outfit that week ” but I bought a straightener that I used in a Starbucks bathroom. For the next callback, I got to the studio early to warm up with vocal exercises in the parking lot. I went into the office, but no one was around. Later, I found out they saw that I checked in an hour before at the gate, so they’re calling my agent: “Is she lost?” and my agent is calling me, but my phone was locked in the car. Finally, someone finds me, has me sign a form, and says, ‘You start in two days.’ I thought I was being punk’d.”
