"People start not being able to look at you in the same way professionally. I don't want that to happen to me."

And Agron says keeping her private life out of the headlines has helped her remain grounded.

She says, "I'm the happiest that I've ever been. Ever. High school, middle school - I've loved every part of getting older and growing, but I definitely think that this is the most I've ever felt like myself and that I'm being treated like who I feel I am."
