“Glee” star Dianna Agron also spoke about growing into herself, after an 11-year “awkward phase” that included middle school boys making fun of her deep voice, worshipping Audrey Hepburn and Lucille Ball, and getting accidentally punched in the nose and branded “bloody nose girl” as a high school freshman.
