Lea Michele Talks About The Perils Of Spray Tanning On 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' (VIDEO)

Lea Michele wants to look her best, but she's also trying to be healthy. She explained on "The Tonight Show" that this meant putting a halt to tanning in the sun or in a tanning bed. Instead, Michele adopted the favorite practice of those kids from "Jersey Shore" -- the spray tan!

But she learned one very important thing about spray tans, and she learned it the hard way. You cannot get them wet when they are fresh. With anything. Like, for example, if a dog jumps on your lap and pees all over you.

That's what happened to Michele. "Because I didn’t wipe off the spray tan yet, it left pee streaks all over my legs," she lamented. "For days I had these zebra striped pee marks on my legs!"

Luckily, her legs looked just fine during her appearance with Jay Leno. She looks great on "Glee," too, on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on Fox. Catch "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
