Lea Michele wants a man who can look after himself.

The 'Scream Queens' star has revealed she would like to date someone who she can ''come together with'' and make ''a really good team''.

She said: ''I was reading an interview with Reese Witherspoon and she said how it was vital to find a partner who really takes care of their side of the road. And that is something I find important.

''I take care of myself, and I spend a lot of time and energy doing that, so I need someone else to look after themselves too. It's only then that you can come together and be a really good team.''

The 29-year-old actress tragically lost her boyfriend Cory Monteith in July 2013 and has penned a number of tracks about him for her upcoming album.

She added to Women's Health magazine: ''Obviously the last track was a song about Cory. And on this new one, the last song is about him again. But it's very hopeful song because I'm in a different place. I'm stronger.''

Meanwhile, Lea previously admitted she ''feels the best'' she has done about her body in her whole life.

She shared: ''I'm very comfortable in my skin. I was on Broadway and I had to take my clothes off there as well.

''It wasn't that crazy for me, but then again, at the end of the day when you're taking these pictures you're like, 'Oh wait, these are going to be on newsstands for the whole world to see.' But I'm very happy with how it came out. I feel the best I've ever felt in my whole life. I'm going to be 30 in three weeks, so I think it was the perfect time to do that.''
