Lea Michele Sorry For Hailee Steinfeld Snub

There’s been much ado about Lea Michele’s snub of Hailee Steinfeld during the newcomer’s True Grit audition on the Paramount lot. Lea wants the world to know – she didn’t mean to give little Hailee the cold shoulder – honest!

Lea issued her mea culpa to Gossip Cop, saying she didn’t consciously reject Hailee’s plea for an autograph, but was pulled away by a production assistant against her will:

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.  She’s an extraordinary talent and I look forward to meeting her one day.”

If we may speculate, it would be a safe bet to assume Hailee will forgive Lea, considering she told J-14 she still watches Glee and loves Lea’s big voice.

Do you forgive Lea? Sound off in the comments.
