Lea Michele Blames 'Glee' Schedule for Hailee Steinfeld Snub

Lea Michele

Saying that tight schedule of 'Glee' caused her to ignore Hailee Steinfeld and rush to the filming set, Lea Michele says she feels 'terrible' for doing that.

Actress Lea Michele has publicly apologized to "True Grit" star Hailee Steinfeld for snubbing her autograph request, insisting she "never meant to hurt her feelings". The 14-year-old actress was auditioning for her role in the Cohen Brothers' new movie at a studio in California when she encountered her TV idol - but the youngster was shooed away by a security guard when she requested a signature from the "Glee" beauty.

Steinfeld recently revealed, "I was practically crying on the way home. I was so sad!" Michele admits she was mortified when she read Steinfeld's comments - and has reached out to the teenager to apologize.

She tells GossipCop.com, "I heard Hailee was upset and I 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's only mortified now because it has become public knowledge how she treats unknowns. What goes around comes around.

    You're telling me she didn't have 5 seconds to sign an autograph?!

    @Anonymous Well, you obviously don't have a job. She was at WORK. All the Glee members have repeatedly said that they have a hectic schedule. Lea just happened to be the member walking across the lot when Hailee saw her. Any other member would have been rushed off too. Give her a break people! This happened a year ago! Seriously.
