As much as we love the idea of Glee’s Lea Michele as a haughty diva who’d sooner slap you across the face than look you in the eye, we sadly have to admit that this is probably not the case. For example, Lea Michele apologized to Hailee Steinfeld today for blowing off the True Grit actress’s request for an autograph. Said the singer, “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.Ã‚Â She’s an extraordinary talent and I look forward to meeting her one day.” Normally we’d say that PA should watch his or her back, but could it be that Lea is…genuinely nice?
As if that wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t enough to melt our ice-cold hearts, additionally Michele recorded a video for a terminally ill fan as part of a request sent through The Willow Foundation, an organization that grants “special days” for ailing patients. “I just wanted to wish you well and tell you to stay strong and I’m sending you good vibes. Good Glee happy vibes,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢” Lea chirps as she shows him around the hair and make-up room at a photo shoot. Okay, Michele, you’ve convinced us that you’re a sweetheart for now. But the second you throw a cell-phone at your assistant? We are all over it.
