Lea Michele to Hailee Steinfeld: I Never Meant to Hurt You

Hailee Steinfeld pops out the color of her neckline in a Jenny Packham dress as she arrives at the 2011 National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Gala held at Cipriani 42nd Street in NYC on Tuesday night (January 11).

The 14-year-old True Grit star is making more headlines not just for her talent but for being brushed off by Glee star Lea Michele.

Lea, 24, issued a statement via GossipCop, apologizing about the incident. “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,” she shared.

    That’s sweet!

    I knew it wasn’t Lea’s fault!!

  • just an observation

    Is this story ever going to die. Lea was at her place of work and that is and should be her priority. Sorry but apparently no one works in this world because if they did they would understand this.

    I’m not trying to be mean to Lea or anything, but from the article about Hailee, Hailee said that she just walked off and the PA said “Sorry, she’s not available to take photos” and followed her. How hard is it to say what the PA said yourself or smile apologetically or something?

  • just an observation

    Magick_girl786 if you read the entire interview Hailee gave the gossip blogs left out all of what Hailee said so really can’t judge until you read the entire article

    Aw. Hailee seems sweet.

    ALL the Glee cast members have repeatedly said they have hectic schedules. Gosh people, Lea just happened to be the member walking across the lot when Hailee saw her. Any other cast member would have been rushed off too. There is a time for work and a time for fans. Lea is super sweet when she’s signing autographs, but I find it totally believable that she was rushed away AT WORK.

  • just an observation

    So what are we talking about? In an interview to promote “True Grit” with J-14, Hailee Steinfeld said that when she was filming the movie on the same lot as the hit Fox show, she at one point attempted to get Lea’s autograph but was turned away by a production assistant. Then, this somehow turned into a case of Lea “refusing” to sign something, and spread like a horrible virus.

    Now, Lea is forced to defend herself, even though she really didn’t do anything wrong.

    Wow isn’t nice when a news site actually prints the truch

    Lea is a snobby and not to mention ugly person!! i dont see what the buzz is about her!! This isnt the first time that she has been rude to someone. She needs a reality check!!

    I just wept a single tear.
