Lea Michele says she has come a long way since her days on “Glee.”

The Broadway star sat down with Drew Barrymore on Wednesday to talk about how getting married and becoming a mother has changed her perspective in life — especially after being called out for her rude behavior two years prior.

“I just couldn’t see things clearly,” Michele, 36, said on Wednesday’s episode of “The Drew Barrymore Show.” “It was all about my career, you know, I had been so career-focused my entire life. I think to a fault. I think that I had just this sense of drive that created a lot of blind spots for me in my life.”

The actress — who is now starring as Fanny Brice in Broadway’s “Funny Girl” — suddenly found herself at the center of controversy in June 2020 after many of her former “Glee” castmates accused her of being “unpleasant to work with.”
