Lea Michele Blew Off Hailee Steinfeld

It was reported that Lea Michele blew off young True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld when she saw her on the Paramount lot.

Not smart, Lea. First of all, Hailee's headed for stardom, and she's already better at working with the press than you.

First of all, Hailee was very classy when she talked to the press about this incident. She told the story and focused on her sadness, while still showing her respect for Ms. Michele. We felt for her as she told us how she was ignored, probably because she was then unknown, and how she was wearing heavy 1800's clothing. She also complimented Lea, showing that she still respects her and doesn't want to hurt her.

Secondly, Lea Michele did not need this. Yes, lots of us are fans of hers and her amazing voice, but she's already come off snobby and rude to the press and her castmates - why do more to spoil her reputation? (Then again, she never thought the unknown on the Paramount lot would amount to anything...bad choice!)

So how can Lea make this up to Hailee? I would say that Lea Michele can send a very nice autographed picture to Hailee, which is all she wanted. She can even make news over it if they pose together with the autograph over lunch.

You have a chance to make this right, Lea Michele, so go for it! Show Hailee Steinfeld that you're the nice person that we want to believe that you are.
