When the “Starving” singer stopped by the Harry show, she took a break from movie talk to reveal why she got freaked out while on tour with Meghan Trainor!
“I was on a tour bus,” Hailee told talk show host Harry Connick Jr. “It took a minute to get used to, but I actually kind of loved it.”
“I hit my head more times in that bunk than I ever have in my entire life,” she went on. “One thing that really freaked me out was I was on the top bunk and I was like, ‘OK, what are you supposed to hold on to if you feel like you are going down?’ You just fall.”
“There was one time I woke up in the middle of the night,” Hailee added. “We were definitely taking a turn, and I remember waking up and being like, ‘Hold on!’ But there’s nothing to hold on to!”

“She just had to be so many things that were antithetical in a lot of ways,” director Kelly Fremon Craig shared about casting Hailee in the lead role. “Really tough, but also really fragile, and be able to completely nail the comedy but also slay you with how vulnerable and insecure and how much pain she’s in. And the thing that just amazed me is she could do that on a dime.”
She added, “She could go from a funny moment to a moment that just killed me. She was making things alive in a way that I just felt like I’m constantly witnessing something miraculous,” said the writer/director, who emphasized that none of the story points were autobiographical.”
FYI: Hailee is wearing a Balmain dress. Melissa is wearing a Preen dress.

The couple just returned from New York City, where Blake, 23, was promoting his new film, Everybody Wants Some.
“The funnest days were when we were all together in the house (where the team lives), or doing the disco scene or whatever,” Blake dished to press about the feel of the set. “Throughout everything, man. We were a team on set trying to portray these guys and off the set, in dance rehearsal or shooting the dances, shooting the baseball stuff.”
He added, “I remember when I was doing the pitching stuff on the mound, (co-star) Wyatt Russell was there behind the camera signaling to me, reach your arm back a little more. It was just a constant brotherhood and support system.”
