Lea Michele: I Have 14 Tattoos


Her Glee character is a total goody-goody, but in real life Lea Michele has quite an edge, at least when it comes to body ink.

"I do have 14 tattoos, but I also do come home every single night and watch reality TV with my cat," the star, 24, revealed in the latest issue of Prestige.

Clad in a curve-hugging, embellished bustier-style ensemble with an edgy black manicure and smoldering makeup, Michele strikes a sultry pose on the magazine's March cover.

In the interview she also talks about smooching her New Year's Eve co-star Ashton Kutcher.

"I come from Broadway. I've done a lot of things. That's child's play compared to some of the stuff that I've done."

Earlier this week Us Weekly broke the news that the actress is dating Cory Monteith. The duo, whose characters were about to get married when Glee's February 1 episode ended, have been "hooking up for awhile," an insider said.

On February 25, Monteith took Michele to his Vancouver hometown for a romantic sightseeing weekend. "They stayed in a hotel, toured Grouse Mountain and went for sushi and sake," a source reveals.

Adds the insider: "It's starting to seem a little more serious."
