Rumors have been flying left and right in regards to the Glee set—but Lea Michele is ready to set the story straight.

Most recently, it was revealed that star Naya Rivera has been written out of the comedy's upcoming fifth season finale. Although there were reports of a feud on set between Rivera and her co-star Michele, sources exclusively revealed to E! News that Naya's departure has "nothing to do with Lea."

E! News caught up with Glee's leading lady at the premiere of her brand new movie, Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return, to find out what the mood has really been like on set. And Spoiler Alert: She has nothing but sweet things to say!

"It was a really wonderful season," the star said. "You know things were really difficult at the beginning of the year, but I'm so thankful for my cast and my amazing crew."

The 27-year-old actress was all smiles on the yellow carpet this past weekend as she gushed about how much fun it was to show up to work in her PJ's for once. "I go to Glee every day and we do like hair and makeup and you're on camera and then you're constantly doing touch ups," she explained. "And then if you do a dance number, you're sweating and then it's like more makeup."

So what was it like switching from Glee's chaotic set to the behind-the-scenes world of Oz? "To go [to work on the movie,] they'd get me a snack and I'd sit, and I'd have tea and sandwiches and be in my comfy clothes. I was just like, whenever you guys need me to come in just gimme a call!" Michele laughed.

Take a look at our exclusive interview with the Brunette Ambition author above to find out how Glee's cast and crew were able to overcome this season's "difficult" beginning. Plus, does Lea address her rumored on-set feud with Naya? Press play to find out!
