Lea Michele: Not Playing Barbra Streisand!

Lea Michele: Not Playing Barbra Streisand!

Lea Michele is all smiles as she and Cory Monteith arrive at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday night (June 20) in Los Angeles.

The 26-year-old actress and her 31-year-old beau looked very much in love as they held hands through the airport.

While rumors continue to swirl that Lea may play Barbra Streisand in an upcoming biopic, the film’s creators confirmed that she is not attached to the project.

“[Lea] turned us and Bill Mann down because she wasn’t interested in doing it as a TV movie, which was the original plan,” co-writer/co-producer David A. Lee recently told After Ellen.

She’s so pretentious and always has been. It was an honor (an undeserved one at that) to be asked to play the incomparable Ms Streisand but of course the little Glee girl is too good for a TV movie

Of course she’s no playing Barbara Streisand because she is the one and only big-nose singer! And Lea wants to be the next Barbara with her even-more-bigger-nose, but she is not getting it…

What’s wrong with her wanting to step away from TV roles? She also chose to not participate in this tv film because the co-writer/co-producer also stated that Barbra Streisand would hate this project and would not approve of this film at all. Lea wouldn’t want to participate in something her idol wouldn’t approve of. You should read the entire After Ellen articile to get all the facts before making such judgments against Lea.

What is wrong with you people? So what if she turned down the role? That is her choice and it does not mean that she is pretentious or that she wants to be bigger than Barbra. She idolizes the woman and for her to turn down the role means something. Try finding out the truth behind her reasoning for doing so before criticizing her.
