Lea Michele has a hero — and it might surprise you who!

The Scream Queens star shared a throwback Thursday photo from Coachella with none other than chef Guy Fieri.

“#TBT to meeting my hero @GuyFieri,” Michele, 29, tweeted (along with some googly heart eyes meant for the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives star).

“If you know me than you’ll know that meeting @guyfieri was one of the greatest moments of my life..#fangirling,” she wrote on Instagram, next to another pair of heart googly eyes.

Though Fieri, 48, is known for taking restaurant patrons to flavor town, we’re not sure there’s much in his repertoire that would be in line with Michele’s vegan diet.

Fieri announced his latest (non-vegan friendly) venture last month — a new “mouth-watering barbecue” restaurant on Carnival Cruises. But perhaps he could whip something up special for one of his biggest fans?

Her hero is a fat cook? LOL

A no talented fat cook with ridiculously stupid hair.

That’s a surprising one. I wouldn’t walk into my yard to meet this clown.

Ally1, that’s hilarious! Basically they’re the same bloated-ego, self important goofballs so not super surprising. Daring of her to admit tho.

Wow will never get over how nasty people are in comment sections. She is exaggerating she enjoys the show Diners, Drive in and Dive. I hardly think she looks up to him as a role model or anyhting.

Lea is not vegan and has not claimed to be vegan since 2011 and even then she said she would switch up her diet. She never was strictly vegan just limited animal by product in her diet. She has said this several time and even said it in her book.
