— -- Lea Michele spoke with Chelsea Handler earlier this week to promote her book "Brunette Ambition."

While on "Chelsea Lately," Michele explained how she began drinking at a very young age.

Handler brought up that in the book, Michele said she's been drinking since a "little toddler."

"It makes me seem crazy," Michele said. "I'm Italian, so at the dinner table, there'd be like Pellegrino, a jug of soda and like a huge thing of wine. So, everyone was just drinking wine, it was like part of what you would have with your dinner."

Michele joked that when she started dating, it became a bit of an issue for her.

"Then growing up, I'd have dinner with my boyfriend, his parents and I'd be like 'Where's the wine? Pass the wine' at like 17," she revealed.

She continued, "I think that the good thing was, when you make so you can have it, then you don't want it. It's when 'You can't have this' that kids are like 'We gotta get that booze.'"

Michele also explained that when she was 13, she met with a manager who actually suggested plastic surgery.

"They were like 'How old are you?' [I said] 13, they said 'Great, as soon as you turn 15, it's time for a nose job,'" she said. "We were like 'Okay, we are out of here!' Obviously I didn't get it done. Wherever she is, I mean she can go f*** herself, so."

Handler followed that up by saying, "Wherever you are, you can go f*** yourself ... if you're a kid, you don't want plastic surgery!"
