She also talked about the rumors of her being "illiterate" saying that she thinks it's "sad."

While speaking on her role as Fanny Brice in 'Funny Girl' before her opening night on Broadway on September 6, 2022.

Michele said, "I went to Glee every single day; I knew my lines every single day. And then there's a rumor online that I can't read or write? It's sad. It really is."

She told The New York Times, "I think often if I were a man, a lot of this wouldn't be the case," about being the target of such rumors.

It's been a few years since conspiracy theories emerged that Michele was illiterate.

The 'Scream Queens' star also discussed the allegations of bullying against her that prompted an “intense time of reflection.”

Regarding the way she works with others as she prepares to star in 'Funny Girl'.

She said, “I have an edge to me. I work really hard. I leave no room for mistakes.”

Michele said. “That level of perfectionism, or that pressure of perfectionism, left me with a lot of blind spots.”

Michele, like her 'Glee' character Rachel Berry, who starred on Broadway as Fanny Brice in the show, is very excited to play the role whenever possible.
