Lea Michele is enjoying her success in the Broadway production of “Funny Girl,” but she doesn’t forget about her growth and the turmoil that occurred on the “Glee” set.

The Bronx, New York native, 36, told Interview magazine about her experience in 2020 after some of her “Glee” co-stars claimed she made their lives miserable on set.

She claimed to have spent the last two years “reflecting” and “sitting back.”

Lea appears to have contacted them directly.

Samantha Marie Ware, a co-star on the show, said the “Run To You” singer made her experience “a living hell,” and other cast members agreed. Heather Morris, a “Glee” coworker, said on social media that Lea was rude.

Following Samantha’s remarks, Lea apologized in front of everyone.

In the magazine, the singer said:

“At the end of the day, what matters the most is how you make people feel.”

The mom-of-one said:

“You have to put aside your feelings. The conversations that I’ve had behind the scenes with some people were incredibly healing and very eye-opening for me.”

Lea, who has been in the industry for a while, says she never blames others for anything, especially after what she has been through.

“But you also can’t ignore those experiences or deny them. They are a part of the patchwork of my life.”

Lea Michele is not only an actress and singer, but also a published author with a net worth of $12 million.

She performed on stage for “Les Miserables,” “Ragtime,” “The Diary of Anne Frank,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Spring Awakening,” “The Rocky Horror Show,” and “The Little Mermaid” before turning to television.

She is best known for her role on “Glee” as Rachel Berry. According to Style Caster, Lea earned approximately $80,000 toward the end of her time on “Glee,” which equated to approximately $1,600,000 per season, depending on the number of episodes.

“Glee” aired from 2009 to 2015.

The following four albums were released by Lea: “Louder (2014),” “Places (2017),” “Christmas in the City (2019),” and “Forever (2021).”

Following “Glee,” the singer-actress starred in “Scream Queen” and “The Mayor.”

Last year, she was cast as Fanny Brice in “Funny Girl,” which will premiere in April 2022, and reportedly grossed $1.6 million on its opening weekend and an average of $1.3 million during Lea’s early weeks.

Many Redditors believe that her Broadway performance is not only rehabilitating or revitalizing her career, but also making her a lot of money.

Lea Michele is said to make an estimated $40,000 per week, or “maybe even up to $100,000,” according to one user.
