Lea Michele Sorry For Hailee Steinfeld Snub

| January 12, 2011 - 6:45 am

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.
