Lea Michele has landed a contract with L'Oréal.

The 'Glee' actress will star in a series of adverts for the French cosmetics brand - in a deal rumoured to be worth $1 million - which will debut at the end of this month in the US.

Appearing for the brand means Lea follows in the footsteps of other beauties including Eva Longoria, Beyonce Knowles,

Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, Cheryl Cole and Penelope Cruz.

Lea, 26, has previously talked about her refusal to alter her natural beauty, telling Allure magazine: ''When I was 15 a manager said, 'You have to get a nose job in order for me to work with you.' My mother would say to me, 'Barbara Streisand never got a nose job. You're not getting a nose job.'''

Lea's confidence is also boosted by her boyfriend and co-star, Cory Monteith, who she says ''inspires'' her both on and off set.

She said: ''I love working with Cory, I always have. He really, really inspires me, and he motivates me and I think he's just so talented.

''I came to a place where I'm much happier personally in my life. Because of that I really don't feel like I need to explain anything or be anything. I'm really proud of who I am.''
