True Grit - Steinfeld Upset By Michele Snub
TRUE GRIT star HAILEE STEINFELD was left on the verge of tears after she was snubbed by GLEE actress LEA MICHELE when she asked for an autograph.
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.
Michele ignored Steinfeld's request for an autograph and the youngster was shooed away by a security guard, and the teenager admits she was devastated by the incident.
She tells J-14 magazine, "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!'
"I had to walk all the way back to the car wearing what I was wearing. I was practically crying on the way home. I was so sad!"
