Dianna Agron: Meryl Streep is a Gleek!

The upcoming season of "Glee" will make an A - as in A-list.

Series star Dianna Agron tells CNN some very famous faces will be wandering the halls of McKinley High.

"Gwyneth Paltrow's coming back, and at the Golden Globes, Anne Hathaway and [series creator] Ryan Murphy inked a handshake deal because she had talked about wanting to be on the show," says Agron. "Kristin Chenoweth's coming back, who we love. She's just a ball of energy. The best thing about being in this industry is you're always learning from people and taking away things and growing, hopefully."

But Paltrow, Hathaway and Chenoweth aren't the only ones Gleeking out over the Fox show. Agron, whose upcoming thriller "I Am Number Four" arrives in theaters February 18, reveals that a few superstars sang her praises at last year's SAG Awards. Exiting the ballroom, Agron was suddenly approached by a woman.

"She comes up and is like, 'Hi, so nice to meet you. We watch the show, and it's so fun. I'm friends with Meryl Streep. Can you talk to her for a second?'" recalls Agron, 24. "And I'm like, 'Yes... I can.'"

Streep walked over and gave Agron a hug, then the friend asked to snap their photo. "As I'm doing that — I'm holding [my award] — Quentin Tarantino's there and he's like, 'Hey, congratulations.' We clink my statue and I'm like, 'I saw 'Inglourious Basterds' two times in theaters; you're amazing!' He was like, 'Right on, thanks so much!' and walks off."

As Agron says, "It's been fun!"

    No offense tneinded, but that sounds like a really dumb excuse. It sounds like she is either somewhat dense, a very cheesy person, or she was coming out, but she chickened out of it after seeing everyone's reactions. I know when I first tried to come out I was so frightened by the response that I came up with silly excuses like this one and reassured every that I was straight. It would probably be worse if I were an actress who has to worry about what all her fans think. Of course she could just be a cheesy person. She is on Glee

    People who speak like this should be ashamed
    The headline actually makes it seem like Meryl should have been involved somehow other than some hot tasty young broad talking about her.

    OMG enough with the guest stars already. I do like the show. He's made some great characters and I'd love to know them better, but with all these guest stars there's never enough time. Its great and flattering that all these high profile celebs want a spot on the show, but its killing what made it so good in the first place. First season was so much better than second and thats because most of the focus was on the kids and the music.

    Why must there always be people who complain about celebrity stories on a celebrity/hollywood blog. Do you also complain about all the product pages on Amazon.com?

    Of course they'll say that, otherwise Ryan Murphy will go tell everyone that they eat children for not letting him borrow their fame.

      I'm just disappointed to find out Meryl Streep likes that crap. Funny, she doesn't seem gleetarded.
