And her star-studded Oscars selfie almost shut down Twitter when the pic became the most retweeted ever."

The actress is gearing up to film the final season of Glee and intends to remain loyal to show creator Ryan Murphy as long as he wants her to play uptight Rachel Berry - but would happily jump ship to his other pet project for its upcoming carnival-themed series four.

When quizzed whether there might be a Rachel spin-off in the works, Lea remained coy and told chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, "I come from Broadway and on Broadway you stay in a show and that's it. You make it your home. So for me, I like the schedule, I like the routine, and I love Ryan and I love Rachel Berry. So I'll be Rachel singing in a senior citizens home for everyone. I've literally have said before that I will work for Ryan Murphy for the rest of my life. Unless he wants to put me on American Horror Story, I know what the theme is for next year and I'm in if he'll have me at least maybe for one episode. Let's start that campaign right now actually!"


Kate Winslet Explains Son’s Names

Kate WinsletKate Winslet's son is named in honor of the fire she escaped in 2011.

The Divergent actress met her now-husband Ned Rocknroll when they fled a fire on his uncle Richard Branson's Necker Island two years ago, so their little boy Bear Blaze was given a middle name to remind them of the incident.

"Bear's second name is Blaze because my husband and I met in a house fire basically. Well, we did! The house burned down and we survived. But we wanted something of the fire and so Blaze was the name that we came up with," she explained.

Kate - who also has children Mia, 13, and Joe, 10, from previous relationships - chose three-month-old Bear's name early in her pregnancy and he is named after one of her old friends. "When I was pregnant with Mia and Joe, I didn't name them before they came out because I always felt like I just have to see them and see who they're going to be. But of course, this time around there's Mia and Joe and the whole pregnancy is about 'What are we gonna call the baby?' So it was really lovely, actually.

"I think she thought it would be funny, but she never stopped after she said it and said 'my friend Liza Minnelli.' So I think it went a little stray on her.
