Michele knows that may seem hard to believe, given that she's been a vegan for years. "People get confused," she says. "[They assume] I just eat grass."

The New Year's Eve star -- who credits her weight loss to jaw surgery -- has grown accustomed to defending her appearance.

"I went to meet a manager who said, you have to get a nose job in order for me to work with you," Michele recalls. "My mother would say to me, 'Barbra Streisand never got a nose job. You're not getting a nose job.' And this was before I really even knew who Barbra was. I just knew that she was, like, the messiah for girls like me."
