Agron’s experience with name-calling (and she’s had plenty) came pre-fame, starting with a fifth grade boyfriend who wanted to take her to the movies, an activity that would never have been ok with the ‘rents. Trying to sound cool, she told her classmates that she couldn’t go because, “My mom will piss me out,” a phrase they then repeated, chant-style, whenever she was around. After a move to San Francisco, her voice had dropped an octave or so, and an unfortunately named guy called Scott Fagley took to following her around singing Walk Like A Man, Talk Like A Man.
And, because things like these tend to come in threes, there was one final humiliation: at her first high school party, she got clocked in the face by a gangly older girl, becoming, from that point forward, “bloody nose girl.” Agron, ever the Glee girl, had the perfect remedy to these not-so-pleasant memories, however: breaking into song. She finished off her monologue by leading the whole room in a rendition of “The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow”. (x)
