Murphy Defends 'Sweet' Michele

GLEE creator RYAN MURPHY has hit back at reports his female lead LEA MICHELE is difficult to work with - insisting he warned her she would face untrue rumours if the show became a hit.
Michele, who plays singing high-school student Rachel Berry in the U.S. musical series, has been dogged by reports she is high-maintenance on-set.
She fuelled the rumours at the Time 100 Gala earlier this month (May10), when she rudely dismissed a photographer who asked who she was. The actress later apologised via her Twitter.com account.
Now her boss Murphy has stepped up to defend his castmember, insisting she is the "sweetest, most professional girl".
He tells People.com, "(The rumours are) not accurate and not true at all. Lea is the sweetest, most professional girl. She's incredibly kind and she's always on time and she's always with her cast hanging out. They're all close."
Murphy admits he feared a backlash against the show's stars, and handed out advice to the cast on how to deal with the downsides of fame.
He adds, "I told Lea this would happen to her in July of last year. Just wait, people will start to write untruths. I told her, 'Keep your chin up and it just happens. It's happened to me and it's happened to everyone. So don't pay attention to it.'
"But it's definitely not true. Lea is great."
