When Hailee Steinfeld was auditioning for True Grit she had a fangirl moment when she saw Lea Michele. The 14-year-old actress, who is now surrounded in award season buzz, went up to the Glee star and asked her for autograph.
“I was wearing clothes from the 1800s that were big and uncomfortable. ‘Glee’ also films on the lot and I love the show.” Steinfeld said in an interview with J-14, “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!” she continued. “But she’s beautiful and she has an amazing voice.”
