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!"
