Though Glee is ending after season six, looks like Lea Michele isn't quite ready to let go of her character Rachel Berry!
In a new interview with Seventeen magazine, the talented 27-year-old makes it clear that she's more than game for a spin-off focusing on Rachel's life in New York City.
"Let's do it. I think it could be Rachel living in New York and working on Broadway!" she says.
Michele, who recently made headlines thanks to some very racy pictures she took with famed photographer Terry Richardson, also not surprisingly shares with the magazine that she's comfortable shedding her clothes.
"I'm very comfortable with my own body. I come from Broadway – everybody's naked on Broadway," she explains. "I like to think of myself as more granola. I'm not going to run around naked or anything like that unless I'm at my own home. Today, I walked into my backyard and was standing out there naked for a while. Don't tell: My neighbors will freak out!"
As for the unavoidable questions about her Glee co-star and real-life boyfriend, the late Cory Monteith, she shares that she only has happy memories despite his tragic passing -- specifically of Monteith always making her "feel so beautiful."
"I only have happy memories of Cory. He was not his addiction – unfortunately, it won. But that wasn't who he was," she says. "Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said, 'I'm your boyfriend,' I loved every day, and I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful."
