Diva Rumor: Did Lea Michele Throw a Vegan Tantrum During Glee’s Food Fight Scene?
Season 3 of Glee opened with, among other things, a good old-fashioned food fight in the cafeteria post-a little impromptu "We Got the Beat" performance. According to a source on set though, Lea Michele (Rachel), outspoken vegan that she is, apparently had a major conniption over the fact that meatballs were being thrown at her.
“Lea pitched a fit, wanting no part of it. She is a vegan and a strong believer in not eating any meat products. The thought of being hit by meatballs grossed her out, so she was adamant that absolutely none be thrown her way!" the source told Star Magazine.
Uh oh. Now, you know one of The Glee Project contestants would be immediately axed if they ever behaved that way on set during the competition. But, of course, Lea is an established actress and has been on Glee for years now. To that end, the producers told the rest of the actors that anyone who hurled meat product her way " would be kicked off set immediately," according to the show insider.
That's the way the cookie crumbles when you're the star of the show, kids. C'est la vie!
