Lea Michele wants her boyfriends to be like her father
The `Glee` actress - who has been in a relationship with actor Theo Stockman for two years - admires men who have similar traits to her father Marc, such as a good sense of humour and caring nature.
She said: "My father makes me laugh - my sense of humour comes from him - but at the same time, I know he`s going to take care of everything.
"I see some of that in my boyfriend."
Working commitments mean Lea and Theo - who most recently starred in Broadway musical `American Idiot` - spend a lot of time apart, but the 24-year-old beauty says her boyfriend still plays a part in her ideal night in.
Explaining what would be her perfect evening, she said: "Take a shower, put on a bathrobe, pour myself a glass of wine and Skype with Theo. That`s the best."
`Glee` is often dogged with rumours that members of the cast are dating one another, but the actress insists that isn`t the case, a fact she is grateful for.
She told Cosmopolitan magazine: "Everyone thinks that everyone is sleeping with everyone.
"We spent every minute of every day together and when we`re finished we all go out to dinner, so of course they think we`re hooking up.
"I`m thankful that it doesn`t happen. If people hooked up, there`d be awkward tensions."
