Hailee Steinfeld: 'I Can't Get My Ears Pierced Until I'm 16!'

Hailee Steinfeld: 'I Can't Get My Ears Pierced Until I'm 16!'

While many teens aren’t allowed to wear makeup until they’re 16, for Hailee Steinfeld, she can’t get her ears pierced.

The 14-year-old Oscar-nominated actress chatted with Teen Vogue mag about her budding style and having a great conversation with Andrew Garfield. Check it:

On the jewelry she can wear: “I’ve been trying to stay pretty clean because I want to keep it about the clothes. I can only wear rings, bracelets and necklaces anyway because I don’t have my ears pierced. My mom won’t let me get them pierced until I’m sixteen.”

On networking in Hollywood: “One of the most exciting celebrity encounters I’ve had on the awards circuit so far was with the cast of The Social Network. I’m in love with them. They’re so sweet and down-to-earth. I had a really long conversation with Andrew Garfield, and we shared on-set stories. I’d never really been able to talk to another actor like that before.”

Psst, check out this clip of Hailee on FOX’s late series Sons of Tucson — before True Grit ever happened!

    Aw, she’s gorgeous.
    I was upset that she didn’t get the role of Katniss.
    But I think Jennifer will be good too.

    I was initally disappointed that Hailliee didn’t get therole of Katniss *I also think Jennifer will be great so I’m at peace with it*. But the good news is that Hailiee is signed on for another movie called “Forgotten” so it’s not like she’s in any danger of not working again!

    @alice: I don’t wear make-up and I’m 14, its just a choice, I don’t need it and its expensive, had my ears pierced when I was 5 though

    @Marieke: I don’t think shes saying that everyone starts wearing it from an early age but most people do because they feel self-conciece about themselves with spots and stuff (btw i’m not trying to say you should wear it lol)
    Anyways love Hailee

    Earrings are for 12 & up. Make up 15 & up. Anything under is deeply disturbing.
