Lea Michele has always seemed like sort of a diva, but lately she’s coming across like the villain in an ’80s teen movie. According to an interview in J-14 magazine, Lea Michele blew off True Grit’s Hailee Steinfeld’s autograph request. Explained Hailey, “When I was auditioning for True Grit, I was on the Paramount lot. I was wearing clothes from the 1800s that were big and uncomfortable. Glee also films on the lot and I love the show, but I haven’t really followed it. I saw Lea Michele just walking to her trailer and I was like, ‘That’s the girl from Glee. I’ve got to go ask for her autograph!’ So I walked up to her and asked for her autograph, but she walked by and a guy came and said, ‘Sorry, now’s not a good time!’” We’re hoping Lea sincerely didn’t hear Hailee speak, because it takes a heart of ice-cold stone to ignore a little cowgirl with a pen and piece of paper.
Hailee, however, apparently doesn’t resent Michele for her supreme diva-ishness. “So I had to walk all the way back to the car wearing what I was wearing. I was practically crying on the way home. I was so sad! But she’s beautiful and she has an amazing voice,” Hailee said. This story is like something you’d submit to Seventeen’s Traumarama, except instead of falling on your butt during the pep rally, you end up sobbing in front of Matt Damon while wearing chaps. You’re on our list, Lea.
