Lea Michele has certainly had her fair share of ups and downs, but she recently revealed that it all inspired her to look back, reflect on past drama and make amends. Here's all the tea that she recently spilled. Keep scrolling.

The Glee star sat down with Interview magazine recently to address rumors of her being a mean girl on set, and let's just say, the actor was not afraid to take it head-on! Multiple co-stars had been claiming that Michele was less than friendly during Glee filming, yet when asked about these reports directly she spoke candidly about it all. "I think these past two years have been so important for everybody to just sit back and reflect," Michele shared, adding, "I did a lot of personal reach-outs."

"The most important thing was for everybody to just take a step back," she continued. "More than anything, I'm so grateful to have this opportunity to apply the things that I've learned over the past ten-plus years in a positive way." It appears things are finally taking a turn for the better for these co-stars. "What I told myself stepping into Funny Girl was, 'If I can't take my role as a leader offstage as important as my role as a leader onstage, then I shouldn't do this show.' Because that was always a struggle for me," Lea said. "So to have this opportunity now at 36 years old as a wife and a mother -- to step into this job that comes with so much pressure and a huge amount of responsibility -- was a very, very big achievement for me."

Despite the turbulent drama surrounding Glee, it looks like Michele has found a silver lining in her experience. She mentioned she reminds herself that "it all comes down to how you make people feel" at the end of it. She also opened up about how her life has done a complete 180 since she worked on Glee. According to the star, the encouragement from her hubby and fam has totally changed things up! And we love to hear it. But does that mean the cast has finally settled their issues for good? Only time will tell...
