Hailee Steinfeld looks chic as she graces the cover of Company magazine’s August 2013, on newsstands July 10th!
The 16-year-old actress opened up about balancing being a teenager with being a celebrity, being homeschooled, and her upcoming flick Romeo & Juliet! Check it:
On being a teenager and a celebrity: “For teenagers â€“ and I mainly speak for myself on this one â€“ youâ€™re put into this adult world and itâ€™s scary as anything can happen at any moment, but Iâ€™m just thankful my parents have raised me the way they have. I feel really confident just being me. I think a lot of the young actresses out there are the same â€“ theyâ€™ve got really good backgrounds and families. Weâ€™re just doing what we love and weâ€™re only doing it for that reason. Right now, I can still go to my local movie theatre with my friends and I donâ€™t get any hassle from anyone. In fact, I donâ€™t get hassled anywhere I go.”
On being homeschooled: “I was getting to a point where things were starting to pick up for me and I was getting a little bit busier and the school wasnâ€™t very supportive of that. It had to, at that point, be one or another. My parents looked into homeschooling â€“ since dropping out of school is the last thing my parents would ever let me do. Itâ€™s hard because Iâ€™m not in school with my friends. But Iâ€™ve had events that have compensated for that.”
On being cast opposite Douglas Booth in Romeo & Juliet: “As well as the chemistry is between us, he was passionate about the project and took it seriously.”
