Lea Michele Tackles Glee, Hailee Steinfeld and Super Bowl 2011
Lea Michele takes on Glee, Super Bowl 2011 and True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld.
It wasn’t too long ago that Glee star Lea Michele made 14-yearr-old True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld cry, but last night at the 2011 SAG Awards Lea made good and both ladies were all smiles.
As the story goes, not too long ago Hailee was on the FOX lot – where Glee and other shows shoot – for an audition when she caught a glimpse of the Glee star. She loves the show so she made her move and went in for an autograph only to be snubbed. Hailee Steinfeld, who is a huge fan of Michele’s, was crushed and said she was practically crying all the way home.
As it turns out the reality is that a production assistant was the one that told Hailee she couldn’t get the autograph, not Lea herself. When Lea heard she was upset and claimed she never even knew this happened and that she wouldn’t snub a fan like that.
Last night at the SAG awards Lea Michele got a chance to make it all better. The two were seated at the same table during the show and Lea spent much of the night chatting Hailee up. Hailee, who is now nominated for an Oscar for her role in True Grit, loved the attention and during the after party the two posed together for some pictures.
While Glee didn’t take home any SAG awards, they still own the coveted spot of being the show that airs right after the Super Bowl ends. In the show the Glee cast takes the football theme to the extreme as the guys and girls hit the field in full uniform for a football meets zombie cover of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Glee will have their special Super Bowl edition this Sunday February 6th and then follow it up with another new show on Tuesday night February 8th. Those of you who have been craving some new Glee action are only a few days away from a double dose of the show and then you too can join Hailee Steinfeld and be all smiles.
