Glee star Lea Michele appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Monday night, talking with the talk show host about her recent pregnancy rumor.
Much like her reaction at the time, the actress took it in stride, telling Leno “I really felt like I finally made it. Having your first fake pregnancy rumor. It was really awesome.”
She continued, “I feel like it’s part of what happens in this business, but that’s a real one. That’s a cool one to get. You’re in,” The Hollywood Reporter writes.
At the time of the rumor, 26-year-old Michele, who’s dating her Glee co-star Cory Monteith, 30, took to Twitter to say “My first fake pregnancy rumor! I've finally made it! :)”
Her rep confirmed she wasn’t pregnant after the rumors started, which began when she was seen clutching a large black purse and holding it in front of her stomach. This started rumors that she was trying to hide a baby bump.
