Lea talked with Jay about changing her last name due to teasing when she was in school. She said, “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.”
