Who would have guessed when “True Grit” actress Hailee Steinfeld shared her most embarrassing moment with J-14 magazine it would have lead to a public apology from “Glee” star Lea Michele? Let’s go back to the beginning.
Hailee’s OMG moment began when she approached Lea on the Paramount lot to ask for an autograph. We should probably add that this was during Hailee’s “True Grit” audition, so she was dressed, well, a little funny (gotta love the 1800s period costumes!). When Lea walked by without giving Hailee an autograph, the 14-year-old left crying! The story made quite the rounds on the internet, prompting Lea to issue an apology.
“I heard Hailee was upset and feel terrible,” Lea told Gossip Cop. “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.”
So where do the two stand now? Hailee told MTV News on the red carpet at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards that “everything’s fine.”
“I mean, it was just really bad timing,” Hailee said. “And I was so embarrassed because of what I was wearing. The only thoughts that were going through my head were, ’Oh my god, Lea Michele thinks I’m a total freak.’ Everything is totally fine though.”
We’re glad to hear it! We wouldn’t want two of our favorite young actresses at odds!
Are you glad everything’s cool between Lea and Hailee? Do you think it was just one big misunderstanding?
