Lea Michele, Women's Health Cover

Lea Michele (and her abs) look like they were meant to be on the cover of Women's Health!

The Scream Queens star, 29, shows off her fit physique in the magazine's November issue. She also opens up about how Glee changed her as a person and teases a possible Fuller House-esque reboot!

"All of our lives changed on Glee," she says. "I went from working on Broadway and living in New York to completely uprooting my life, moving to Los Angeles, being on a television show, having people know who I am. My life changed pretty drastically. We grew up a lot over those years and it was really an amazing experience, and nothing will ever be like Glee, but everything else will be uniquely on its own just as good."

Other things will be great, yes, but calling a wrap on Glee was still extremely difficult! "I definitely prepared myself as much as possible, leading up to the last day and each day coming into work and being like 'oh my gosh, this is my last scene with this person!'" she tells Women's Health. "I did a lot of the work leading up, but no matter what on that last day it's just kind of like 'oh my god, we are never gonna be here ever again (unless we get picked up by Netflix at some point, or Hulu).'"

Gleeks, you read that right—that's a glimmer of hope straight from Rachel Berry!

In the meantime, though, Lea seems pretty happy to be working on Scream Queens. But while she calls Ryan Murphy "an amazing person and an incredible boss to have," there's one thing she won't do for him: Scream!

"I refuse to scream on the show," she tells Women's Health. "Ryan got me in a booth one day and I told him 'I'm screaming like twice and then you're going to have to use it the whole season' because I'm a singer and I was there with Ariana Grande and we were like 'We can't scream, this is our gift.'  So I don't scream, they just dub it in."

"But," she adds, "they say I do a really good scream face without having to scream."
