Jane Lynch - Jane Lynch To Discuss Sexuality In Book

Jane Lynch will open up about her sexuality and battle with alcoholism in her new memoir.

The 'Glee' actress - who tied the knot with her long-term girlfriend Lara Embry last summer - will release her autobiography 'Happy Accidents' in September and Jane revealed she hopes her life experiences will help other people.

Speaking about the book, she said in a statement: "If I could go back in time and have a conversation with my 18-year-old self, the first thing I'd say is, 'Lose the perm.' Second, I would say, 'Relax. Really - just relax. Don't sweat it.' For a long time, I was anxious and fearful that the parade would pass me by, and that someone or something outside myself had all the answers. Having finally reached a happy place - a happy accidents place- I want to share my story with others, to let them know things aren't as bad as they fear."

Jane's publisher Voice added the book will focus on how "embracing her sexuality" helped Jane "find both professional and personal joy".

Jane is also expected to discuss her long battle with alcoholism which started when she was just 14.

She has previously said: "As a kid I was convinced that deep down inside, at my core, there was something wrong with me - something fundamentally broken.

"I constantly apologised. I'd over-thank people. I'd pay more than my share. It was as if I had some kind of deficit and needed to compensate for it. Then, when I was 14, I started drinking, and I didn't get sober until I was 31."

Before finding fame as acerbic cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester in the musical TV series, 50-year-old Jane appeared in a series of movies including 'The 40 Year Old Virgin' and 'Role Models'.
