August 29th is Lea Michele’s birthday. On this day, the girl who plays Rachel Berry on Glee turns a quarter century old. I’ll be honest, I’ve seen maybe 5 total seconds of that show but the actress caught my attention with her scandalous photo shoot with GQ last year. She appears on TIME magazine’s 2010 list of the 100 Most Influential People In the World, placed #7 on FHM’s 2010 Sexiest Women List, and ranked 28th on the Maxim 2011 Hot 100. We named her one of the 50 sexiest Jewish female celebrities and placed on our lists of the top 20 babes we want to see in Playboy and Women Who Wowed in 2010. You can see her on the big screen in New Year’s Eve, which comes out in early December. Or you can check her out in our gallery below.
