Glee star Lea Michele has confessed she once felt so overwhelmed with her job that she burst into tears- on the set of her first L'Oreal advert!
The star landed a £625,000 contract to promote the French hair and beauty giant last year with her ads due to hit the US in the coming weeks. She follows in the footsteps of famous ladies like Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez who have previously fronted the brand.
The actress was so honoured to be chosen as the face of the brand that she cried when it came to saying the famous tag line:
"When I shot my commercial in New York, they (producers) said, 'Okay, now look into the camera and say, Because you're worth it.' Before I even said it, I burst into tears. I was like, 'Oh my God, I can't believe I'm a part of this family now," she told Teen Vogue. "I am so grateful!"

Lea has been taking a break from shoots for Glee this week, enjoying a romantic new years holiday with her on and off screen boyfriend Cory Monteith.
According to photos obtained by E! the cute couple were having the time of their lives in paradise. Lea was spotted showing off her amazing bikini bod in a teeny red bikini whilst Cory snapped away at the scenery on his camera.
But, the pair have now returned to LA with Lea arriving at the airport holding hands with her Canadian hunk of a boyfriend and they couldn't contain their happiness as they smiled through matching Ray Bans, showing off enviable tans, the Mail Online reports.
Yesterday (January 5), Lea shared one last shot of her trip on Instagram, obviously reminiscing as she returned to the mild Los Angeles winter. 'Last look at paradise... Till next time, of course:),' she wrote, as the image showed her playing with her windswept hair as she watched the Hawaiian sunset.
