Lea Michele's Summer of Butt 'Selfies:' See Her Beach Bum in (Insta) Action

07/22/2014 at 03:37 PM ET

If you follow Lea Michele on Instagram, you know the star is in great shape — and proud of it. The actress’s overshare of choice this summer has been snaps of her butt in itty-bitty bikinis, and below, we’ve got the photo grid to prove it.

Michele is currently soaking up the sun in Italy, yachting and sipping bubbly. (Both photos at left are from her Italian getaway). The star seems to have a very particular swimsuit MO: bright-colored two-pieces with cheeky, Brazilian-cut bottoms. And of course, these aren’t true selfies — her new boyfriend is likely the one snapping the photos — but we bet he’s not complaining considering the view. (And the vacations — her other butt-snapping locales of choice are Mexico and Hawaii.)

In addition to the great vistas, Michele is also in Italy for the Giffoni Film Festival, where she debuted some summery highlights during a red carpet appearance. The blonde streaks are perfect for a yachting excursion, but we’re curious to see if she keeps them in once she’s disembarked the boat.

As for her bikini body secrets, Michele had dedicated herself to a vegan lifestyle. She credits the book Skinny Bitch for helping her get her eating habits on track. “It slapped me in the face,” she told Women’s Health. “My idea of heaven used to be relaxing at home with a cheese plate and Champagne.”

Eli on

Um, ok, a. it is not a selfie if someone else takes the picture. Durr. And b. I am really, really, really tired of this chick’s desperation for attention and validation.

Lily on

Can’t be called a selfie if you’re not taking it (as Eli already mentioned). Also, maybe she shows lots of photos of her backside because she’s a “butterface”.

Katie on

She looks great!

Sacre on

Since she’s officially milked Cory’s death for all she could, looks like she has to literally show her @$$ for attention now.

Maria on

She has to show off her butt because she’s a butterface.

Bill on

Leave her alone !!!!!!! She is in mourning.

blah on

I don’t get why every has to be so negative all the time. she looks great and is having fun.

joey on

To each their own. I’m glad she has been able to move on with her life and find some happiness. Losing a boyfriend in any way is a horrible thing and to have it happen in front of the world is something most of us can’t even comprehend. If she wants to show the world her butt then who cares. If I had a behind like hers I would take pictures and post them too! You go girl!

PeeP on

She has joined the insecure ‘look at me club’. Maybe she should stop dating a gigolo. It may help her self esteem.

Bender on

Wow you people are full of yourselves, she doesn’t show off anymore than any other young star. She doesn’t appear to be milking anything. I guess you have to say something bichy. Bunch of biches
