Well, we can certainly understand why this would be an issue for her - but still, sometimes you gotta suffer for the sake of your art!
Lea Michele has long been reported to have some serious diva-tude on the set of her smash series, Glee, and according to a source close to production, one of her more recent 'episodes' sent her co-stars over the edge - all during the infamous food fight site from the premiere episode of the third season!
The insider explains:
“Everyone was supposed to throw spaghetti with meatballs, salad and other assorted foods at each other. Lea pitched a fit, wanting no part of it. She is a vegan and a strong believer in not eating any meat products. The thought of being hit by meatballs grossed her out, so she was adamant that absolutely none be thrown her way!”
Therefore, she reportedly demanded that producers instruct the cast, crew, and extras to throw only salad at the actress, and if they did not follow instruction, "they would be kicked off set immediately!"
So, in response:
“Everyone armed themselves with tons of salad to throw her way. She doesn’t even like to look the other actors in the eye. She thinks she’s better than everyone else.”
Tisk, tisk, tisk!
Being a vegan is one thing, refusing to look co-stars in the eye and pulling temper tantrums to your needs accommodated are quite another!
We hope this story isn't true, gurl!
