Lea Michele Never Meant to Hurt Young 'True Grit' Star

Earlier this month, we reported about 14-year-old, SAG Nominee Hailee Steinfeld being majorly let down by Lea Michele when the 'Glee' starlet refused to sign an autograph. In an interview with J-14 Magazine, Hailee described the snub as one of her most embarrassing moments.

But Gossip Cop discovered that one key part of the story was omitted. It was not Lea Michele who "dissed" the talented 'True Grit' star. It was actually a production assistant, whose premiere role on set was to keep the show's tenacious fans at bay.

Even though Lea wasn't at fault for Hailee's letdown, she still feels bad. "I heard Hailee was upset and feel terrible," she said. "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."

That sounds more like the girl who brings life to Rachel Berry Tuesday nights. That said, someone should find out if Hailee can sing. Lea could pull some strings and bring the 'True Grit' talent to McKinley High!
