“Awkward” Celebrity Run-Ins at the Golden Globes?

Truth rating: 0

Lea Michele And Hailee Steinfeld


“The Golden Globes this Jan. 16 are meant to be an evening of parties and celebrations – but not if these celebs have an awkward run-in!” exclaims HollywoodLife, which has an extremely awkward relationship which accuracy. Among those the outlet claims could have “incredibly awkward, and seemingly tense, celeb encounters” are Hailee Steinfeld and Lea Michele. The site tries to illustrate it by showing a smiley Seinfeld, while Michele looks less amused (photo at right). But it’s all a manipulation.

According to the blog, the last time Steinfeld and Michele crossed paths, “Lea ignored her and almost made the young starlet cry.” Adds the site snarkily, “Luckily Hailee wins out in the long run as the better actor, dresser, and person in general.” Actually, Michele did not ignore Steinfeld, a point even the young True Grit actress made clear.

Still, Michele told Gossip Cop exclusively, “I heard Hailee was upset and feel terrible. The ‘Glee’ schedule is so jam-packed that the [production assistant] 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.”

HollywoodLife also reports that Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson could have an awkward run-in. The site writes, “Claims of a Ryan [Reynolds] and Sandy love affair likely have Scarlett hoping their paths don’t cross when they both show up as presenters.” But, as Gossip Cop pointed out a few days ago, not only are Reynolds and Bullock not having a “love affair,” but the Oscar-winner and Johansson are friends and recently had lunch together.

And finally, HollywoodLife insinuates that it could be awkward for Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow to be near each other because the Country Strong actress dated Brad Pitt. No, it wont be. Pitt and Paltrow dated a decade and a half ago. Once again, the only thing “awkward” is HollywoodLife’s insistence on twisting facts and reality to fit its inaccurate reporting.
