Lea Michele once made Hailee Steinfeld cry, but last night at the SAG Awards, she made the True Grit star smile.

In case you didn't know, Hailee was crushed after the Glee starlet turned down her request for an autograph while she was on the Fox lot for an audition.

"I was practically crying on the way home. I was so sad!" she told J-14 mag.

But at the SAG Awards cocktail party last night, Lea made amends with the Oscar-nominated teenager...

The two talented girls were seated at the same table inside the Shrine Auditorium and not only did Lea chat up Hailee, but she did way better than an autograph.

She posed for photos with the 14-year-old!

Nice to see all is well between these young Hollywood heavyweights.

For the record, Lea's rep told E!'s Awful Truth that it was a production assistant, not Lea, who denied Hailee's autograph request.

See? Lea's diva reputation is totally undeserved.

And guess who Lea is buddying up to these days? Our own Kim Kardashian.

The unlikely friends first hung together at a Globes party. And at last night's awards, they met up again after discussing their red carpet wardrobes on Twitter before the big show.

"Glad I got to see you though you looked GORGEOUS! :)," Lea Tweeted last night.

Kim is really getting in good with the Glee cast. Chord Overstreet Tweeted a photo of himself with Kim and brother Rob, writing "Ok by far my fav peeps! I love @kimkardashian @RobKardashian."

We still doubt she'd be offered a guest spot on the hit Fox show, but nice to see her making new friends!
