What Lea Michele Is Doing for Valentine’s Day

Written by Michelle Kretzer | February 11, 2013

As half of one of the world’s cutest on- and off-screen couples, we figured that Lea Michele would have some great ideas for how to spend Valentine’s Day. We were right. Lea doesn’t want expensive jewelry or a massive bouquet of flowers. Her idea of a lovely evening is laid-back and simple.

“My idea of the perfect romantic Valentine’s Day is staying at home, cooking a yummy dinner, and watching a really scary movie,” she told us.

Sounds like the real-life Rachel loves simply snuggling up under a blanket with her beloved. But Lea made it clear where we’ll never catch her canoodling: in a horse-drawn carriage

“The one thing I find the least romantic is taking a horse and carriage ride,” she said. ”I can’t express enough how unhappy these horses are and how much pain and suffering they go through each day. Please do not ride [in horse-drawn carriages]. Take a beautiful walk together with your loved ones instead of bringing more pain to these beautiful animals.”

Yeah, there are few things less romantic than watching horses breathe exhaust fumes and dodge traffic. Watching your loved one breathe in yummy aromas coming from the oven and dodge a playfully lobbed strawberry, however …

    Horses don’t belong in traffic!

    I hate seeing the horses in Central Park … it just ruins the whole beauty of park knowing they endure long days with constant on the go lugging people around within the noisey city. Let them be free out in a field running free where they deserve to be! <3

  • Marilyn O'Loughlin says:

    Poor things standing outside all day in pain and uncomfortable ‘clothing’ and usually in the blistering heat. Cruel!

  • Monica McQuade says:

    They shouldn’t be forced to pull people in the freezing cold or the most hottest of days!! Its just plain cruel!!

  • Joyce R. says:

    Stop this nonsense!

  • Lisa Provident says:

    Yeah, there are few things less romantic than watching horses breathe exhaust fumes and dodge traffic. Please end this abuse!! Thank You LP

    I think these poor horses are living a horrible life and i would never ever go on a horse drawn carriage, it makes me sad to see them. It needs to be stopped

  • Tatia Shurgaia says:

    Stop using horses! You don’t need a horse to show your love to someone. All you’re doing is hurting the horses. They weren’t born to carry you around. You have legs so use them. You wouldn’t like it if someone put straps on you and told you to carry people around until they felt like stopping. Realize what you’re actually doing to these beautiful and helpless animals!

  • George Deprelle says:

    I agree with Lea, but what about the thousands of “working horses” with carriages in the eastern European countries and in the rest of the world!?

  • Mark Stewart says:

    Please stop using horse and carriage rides as it is cruel to the horses.

  • Thom Jaskula says:

    Please put an end to this outdated and inhumane practice. Thank you.

  • Rashelle Allen says:

    Think about how it would feel to have to walk on your nails on hot cement all day, everyday, for your whole life. That doesn’t seem to fun does it? Don’t make the animals god put her to help keep this world going do it.

    I have to add this to my comment. I was so angry at lea michelle about l’oreal that I neglected to address the issue of the horse drawn carriages, which I apologize for. I am completely against cruelty to any & all animals on any level. To harness a horse & hook up to a carriage & then force it to walk over pavement in all kinds of weather, pulling all kinds of weight & being whipped, plus frightened & startled, at the very least by every thing about them going on is cruel & unusual punishment. It just saddens me that we humans care so little about the life of others. It is said that we humans are always thinking of ourselves & what gives us pleasure regardless if we are causing pain to a poor defenseless creature. I just wish people would stop abusing animals so much in so many ways, it ways heavy on my heart.
