Lea Michele is setting the record write.
A few months ago, a very weird (and very long) YouTube video emerged, claiming that the Glee actress could neither read nor write.
In March, a pair of “fans” filmed a 45 minutes long video based on the conspiracy theory that the 31 year old is illiterate, and alleging they possessed “proof.”
The so-called evidence included Lea having “to learn, like, four words for her role in Ragtime” and “Ryan Murphy knows the secret, and she only works with him because he reads her her lines and she remembers them.”
Lea addressed the bizarre and bemusing clip during Watch What Happens Live when asked about it by Andy Cohen.
“I woke up one day and all of a sudden all online, someone had made like a conspiracy video trying to prove that I can’t read or write. It’s the most bizarre thing that has ever happened in my life,” she said.
The actress even offered Murphy’s take on the conspiracy: Not only do I have to memorize pages and pages, they said that Ryan Murphy would have to read the lines to me. Ryan called me. He’s like, ‘Do people think that I have the time in my life to come and do this?’”
So, let’s confirm that literacy can definitely be added to Lea’s skills list.
