Hailee Steinfeld , the 14 year-old actress who is getting a lot of attention for her role in “True Grit,” (even getting a Best Supporting Actress SAG nomination), but that wasn’t enough for Glee‘s Lea Michele to even say hello to the young star. Hailee told J-14 magazine, yes that teenybopper magazine, that she was dissed by the actress when she went to audition for the Coen Brothers movie.
“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. 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!‘”
Hailee was so heartbroken, she went back to the set in tears. “I had to walk all the way back to the car wearing what I was wearing. I was practically crying on the way home,” Steinfeld said. “I was so sad! But she’s beautiful, and she has an amazing voice.”
Of course this isn’t the first report of Michele having diva-like behavior, but I’m sure Hailee is sweating it now. She has a SAG nomination and a hit move on her hands, after all.
