"Glee" has brought its stars face-to-face with some of the biggest names in Hollywood, from guests like Britney Spears to Gwyneth Paltrow (more on her later....) And since the cast has made not only a big splash on the small screen, but the music charts as well, it was something of a shock for us to find out Lea Michele has not yet met fellow pop-culture breakout Justin Bieber!
The actress gabbed with MTV News on the red carpet as she made her way into the 68th Annual Golden Globes (where she was nominated for Best Actress in a Television Series-Comedy or Musical) when the topic of the Biebs came up.
When MTV News' Josh Horowitz told Lea that the "Never Say Never" star was going to be in attendance on Sunday, the pint-sized actress with the big voice exclaimed, "No way! You're lying. That's crazy!"
Despite the fact that Lea's "Glee"-mates will be singing Justin's tunes on their show soon, she admitted she hasn't yet encountered the tween sensation in person.
But it wasn't their paths not crossing that shocked Lea. "I'm surprised that there isn't mind-blowing screaming happening right now," she said, giving a nod to the Biebs' very vocal fans. When she was told she'd arrived before Justinmania had hit, she told us, "I'm glad I get inside before that happens, because it might hurt."
In addition to talking about J-Biebs, Lea also touched on the upcoming anticipated return of Gwyneth Paltrow. While the star admitted she wasn't sure what would be in store for Holly Holliday, she spoke for all Gleeks when she said, "I'm excited. Anything with Gwyneth is great."
