Lea Michele 'Never Meant To Hurt' True Grit Star's Feelings

| Filed under: GleeLea Michele

See! There is always a perfectly logical explanation that doesn't involved labeling Lea Michele a insensitive diva.

Not too long ago, we reported a story that while on the Paramount lot shooting Glee, Lea was approached by Hailee Steinfeld, the 14-year-old actress from True Grit. The story went that Lea rudely refused to sign an autograph for the young fan, sending her away in tears.

But sources have learned that one key point of the story was left out: Hailee never approached Lea directly. She was intercepted by a production assistant whose sole job on the set is to keep fans at bay while the actors are filming.

Still, Lea doesn't have a heart of stone and feels bad about letting Hailee down. She told sources:

"I heard Hailee was upset and feel terrible. The Glee schedule is so jam-packed that the PA probably pulled me so that I wouldn't be late to set. I never meant to hurt her feelings. She's an extraordinary talent and I look forward to meeting her one day."

Maybe sooner than you think! Aren't you both nominated for SAG awards? How's about you make a little time for her then, Lea? It'd be nice to talk to someone on the red carpet who wants to know more about you than just who you are wearing!

    Seems like it should be the other way around..Lea should be asking for Hailee's..Her acting Blows Lea AWAY…She SUCKS

    PR damage control… again. You could fill an entire house with this girl's ego.

    I LOVE Lea you guys are haters!!



  5. 5

    I call this story bullshit… If any other actress released this statement you would call it a PR stunt. I am shocked you haven't tried to get your ugly face on glee.

    Every person who knows and has worked with Lea M on broadway says she is not a nice person. I believe them.



  7. 7

    Once the show goes off we will never hear from her again except in a Hallmark made for TV movie. Diva and wanna be!

    You really should read what Lea said. She assumes a production assistant pulled her away. Lea probably doesn't even remember the situation. The key point that she approached the production assistant first - Hailee said she approached Lea and was ignored. The PA apologized and said it probably wasn't a good time.

    I think Lea assumes it wasn't her that was rude and ignored Hailee - someone else prevented her from giving her autograph. Beceause Lea is always right and would never be rude.

    Hailee Steinfeld is amazing in True Grit. I hope we see a lot more from her.

    And there are so many negative reports out there about Lea Michele that it's becoming hard not to believe. She needs a reality check. She has an amazing voice but that is about it.

    Lea is lying and is a terrible person. I've worked with her on a show in New York and everyone here hates her. She is terrible to work with and all the rumors are true. No one in New York likes her and we are all glad she is in LA. Stay there please.

    Lea M comes across as a major DIVA and BIOTCH! I'm calling bullshit on her "explanation"



  12. 12

    B.S.! she just thought she was a random fan is all. Happy National Marzipan Day!!!



  13. 13

    I would love to "hurt" Lea Michele, if you know what I mean, mmmm mmmm mmmm!



  14. 14

    Anyone who asks for an 'autograph' while on a studio lot is an IDIOT! A lot is a working environment, where talent is getting paid A LOT of money to WORK, not sign autographs. I'm assuming that this little girl in the future will ALWAYS sign every autograph asked of her, yea right.



  15. 15

    Right, blame it on the PA! She's so full of it. Just admit you're a little snot and own it.

    Re: Roccomagoo – So that include Jon Groff, John G, Remy, Pheobe Stobe,, Michael Myers etc. All friends with her still. Stop exaggerating things you know nothing about.

    Of course she meant it, she just didn't expect that this girl would become famous and expose her for who, and what, she really is, and that is not a very nice person.



  18. 18

    As first sated may be it wasn't a good time. So even if she did rush past her and didn't sign and apologize people won't care. No one is allowed to make mistakes. People are so judgemental you have no idea what was happening that day. At this point Lea could cure cancer and people would still bitch at her jsut becasue they like to bitch about things.



  19. 19

    Re: Action07 – yeah sure. That is why she is best friends with Jon Groff and still very freindly with most of the cast of Spring Awakening.



  20. 20

    Yes, there's always a perfectly good reason why celebs known to be assholes (like Lea) really aren't, despite the fact that these incidents seemingly never end. And you'll always get the double-standard treatment from Perez if he fawns over you like he does to Lea.

    Re: Frank McBee – What are you, her Chief Apologist or something? She has a rep for being a bitch. Case closed. Spin it however you want, where there is smoke there is fire. Hollywood is chock full of phoney people, and the hangers-on that defend and enable them. Like you.



  26. 26

    Hailee you have great potential.Lea will be doing porn in about 5 years.

    I thought I smelled smoke, but it was just the back pedelling.



  28. 28

    Lea Michele needs a nose job.



  29. 29

    ugh, she is horrible and a liar



  30. 30

    Re: Frank McBee – You know nothing about me, who I know and who I speak to. It's no secret that she's a diva…and without reason. I do know what I'm talking about. Have a nice day!



  31. 31

    Lea never meant to hurt her feelings because she thought the girl was just another anonymous fan to step all over. She didn't realize the girl was also semi-famous and about to give an interview about Lea's bratty behavior.

    holy shit people are hateful…
