Hailee Steinfeld is tall for just 14-years-old. She’s already 5’8″!
On bonding with her True Grit costars: “With each of them, every minute we would get to talk, I was telling myself, ‘Hailee, take advantage of the time you have with them.’ I wasn’t in the position to ask all of the questions I would want to ask, but if I had one, I knew that each of them would be ready and willing to answer [it].”
On starting to love her height: “I started recently to appreciate being tall, but I have never particularly liked it. I am taller than all of my friends, so I feel like I really stick out, and I don’t like that. I am taller than all of the guys, which really stinks, but they are finally starting to catch up with me, which is nice.”
On toughing it out in the snake pit scene: “I don’t particularly like snakes, but I’m not afraid of them. I knew that those snakes weren’t poisonous, and, you know, there was also a snake wrangler standing right behind me â€“ that helps.”
HAVE YOU SEEN True Grit yet?
