Lea Michele stopped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to promote New Year’s Eve and revealed that she cut off her last name because of childhood teasing at school! Awww!

“Sarfati. That’s my real last name. I don’t use it a lot because I got Lea So-fatty, Lea So-farty at school. So when I was little and I went on my first audition they were like, ‘And may we have your name,’ and I was like Lea Michele. And I’ve been Lea Michele ever since.’”
