Lea Michele stopped by Chelsea Lately and divulged an embarrassing secret about her performance with the Glee cast at President Barack Obama’s 2013 inauguration. The Brunette Ambition author told host Chelsea Handler she was understandably nervous about the big moment, so she asked best friend and fellow performer Jonathan Groff to calm her down.
“He was my date and decided that the best thing to do before I went on to sing for the president was to make me laugh so hard that I peed my pants.”
So just how bad was Michele’s leaky laugh attack?
“Oh, we had to change the bed,” the 27-year-old admitted.
Apparently, a fresh set of sheets wasn’t enough; the actress shared that she also snuck some presidential toilet paper home because it sported an official seal.
