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 – and I mainly speak for myself on this one – you’re put into this adult world and it’s scary as anything can happen at any moment, but I’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 – they’ve got really good backgrounds and families. We’re just doing what we love and we’re only doing it for that reason. Right now, I can still go to my local movie theatre with my friends and I don’t get any hassle from anyone. In fact, I don’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 wasn’t very supportive of that. It had to, at that point, be one or another. My parents looked into homeschooling – since dropping out of school is the last thing my parents would ever let me do. It’s hard because I’m not in school with my friends. But I’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.”
