Lea Michele Apologizes For Photographer Run-In

Lea Michele Apologizes For Photographer Run-In

Glee actress Lea Michele has taken to Twitter to address diva behavior she reportedly demonstrated at the Time 100 party May 3 in New York.

Photographer Patrick McMullan reportedly asked Lea for her name after taking her photo but she responded with blatantly wrong names (Sarah Palin, Taylor Swift).

Lea tweeted, “Big apology to @PatrickMcMullan. Totally didn’t expect you (or anyone) @ Time 100 to know who I was w/all the amazing people there… [I] made a silly joke that didn’t go over, so sorry. It was such an incredible night and I was beyond honored and thrilled to be there.”

FYI: Lea and her boyfriend, Broadway star Theo Stockman, were spotted kissing at the Time 100 party.

    That was nice of her to apologize. I don’t think she was being a diva. I’m sure she’s just tired of doing all this PR.

    she was annoyed that he had no clue who she was; and that he had interrupted her makeout session

    She probably realized who he was. People practically strip to get photographed by Patrick. He’s that influential and can do wonders for and up and comer.

    OOPS! Says:

    You acted like a ninny in front of the wrong photographer and probably only apologized after someone told you who HE was.

    This girl is tough and mean. And looks it too. She’s got a square, manly face and her attitude goes with it. What gives her the right to be such a diva? Because she’s on a stupid TV show? Give me a freakin’ break. Grow up, honey.

    busted Says:

    First off, she is covering up for what she did and it is obvious that she is a rude witch. Also just because she is famous doesn’t mean everyone in the world will know who you are. Her behavior was uncalled for. To be called one of Time’s 100 most influential is an honor. I think it is funny how she says that now on her twitter. She didn’t think it was an honor at the event. She also must have thought she was at prom and made out with her boyfriend while grossing everyone out at the table.

    What? Says:

    She tweeted her apology? What happened to actually apologizing in person, picking up the phone or a hand written note. That would probably do more for paving over the embarrassment and your career. After all, he’s used to taking pictures of high society and is probably used to that. Just giving a tip.

    Liv Says:

    I don’t get her attitude. She was at the White House Correspondent’s dinner, not a date at Koi or wherever these newly famous people hang out.

    Alison Says:

    If she meant her apology, she would have told him privately, not for all the world to see so that the bad press goes away

    Stuck up ugly cow!!! She has no right to be that rude – it was a simple question. Her fame will not last – plus she has a really annoying face!!!!

    i dont understand why you guys are all making such a big deal out of this. she apologized and saying things like “im taylor swift” or “sarah palin” isnt a big deal. its not like the photographer would have thought she was one of them. it was just a joke guys, really. shes actually a really nice person is you look at all her interviews and stuff.

    Jules Says:

    I totally get her joke and I also get that she came across as a *****, but the photographer reacted equally silly, so: good for her to do some damage control.

    denimday Says:

    Diana Power: Patrick Mcmullan has commented on the event and said that this did happen. Lea really was rude. She is only apologizing now because he has spoken about it. Lea is ***** and deserves to be ridiculed for it.

    charm Says:

    Of course she would apologize to him publicly; It’s called saving face. don’t be surprise if she offers an exclusive photo shoot to McMullan. She’s just sorry that she didn’t know who she was dealing with in the first place or she would have put on her better attitude, in other words – she would have faked being nice. I guess at least we can’t blame her for putting a front then; she was just being her real self so to speak.

    @diana power:]: She comes across phony as hell to me in her interviews, especially once you watch them back to back.

    get over it Says:

    Oh please, so many “celebrities” have done SO much worse. She apologized so move on. Good grief, you guys act like she flipped off the pope or something. So she was a little sarcastic to some photographer. She’s very young and is learning. I guess none of you make mistakes.

    liz Says:

    I met this girl a few years ago. She’s not a nice person. This encounter doesn’t surprise me at all: an attitude like that will get you nowhere. I don’t think she’ll have much of a career after Glee.
