Gleeâs Lea Michele has issued an apology on Twitter to a photographer who reportedly asked her for her name after he photographed her at the party for the Time 100, a list of the worldâs most influential people. According to reports, Michele rolled her eyes and offered the names Taylor Swift and Sarah Palin - women who had also made the magazineâs cut.
âBig apology to @PatrickMcMullan. Totally didnât expect you (or anyone) @Time 100 to know who I was w/all the amazin people there:)â Michele wrote. âMade a silly joke that didnât go over, so sorry. It was such an incredible night and I was beyond honored and thrilled to be there:)â
I can buy that sheâd given the names as a self-deprecating joke: It was probably one of those times you think, âIâve made it,â and then hereâs someone throwing a verbal slushie in your face, reminding you that you havenât.
The situation did get me wondering: How many of the 13 Glee actors in this photo can you actually name?* If I wasnât writing about them every other day, Iâm not sure how many I would know. Iâm far more interested in their characters than I am their private lives - which speaks volumes for the show.
* Full names, spelled correctly.
