Hailee Steinfeld looks pretty in a white dress in a photo from her Seventeen magazine September cover shoot.
The 19-year-old musician and actress opened up about being a part of Taylor Swift‘s squad, getting bullied in school and what she has planned for the future. Check it:
On comparing herself to other girls: “I have definitely had moments where I’m scrolling through Instagram and see these drop-dead gorgeous models, who we tend to forget are genetically a certain way, and think, Why can’t I or don’t I look like that? It’s so easy to forget that we are all so beautiful because we’re unique.”
On being bullied in school: “There was a period of time where every morning at 7:02, I’d get a prank phone call at my house. That’s how I’d start every day, with a threat saying, ‘Come to school now. We’re going to kick your butt.’ So I went to school early and went in the back way. And there would be times when I’d come back to my desk and have hand sanitizer all over my books and in my water bottle. People would come by and slam my locker shut when I was still putting my books in it. It was just the most absurd things that you are supposed to see only in the movies, you know?”
On being a part of Taylor Swift’s squad: “I think people think we spend a lot more time together than we actually do! She’s amazing, though.”
On her future goals: “I’d really love to have an experience like True Grit again. And with the music, I want to make the best first album I can possibly make. And I want to get to a level where I can headline my own arena tour. I know that I can make it happen. It’s just the beginning. I see the future being really big.”
The Edge of Seventeen follows her as things get complicated when her BFF starts dating her all-star older brother, played by Blake Jenner. But an unexpected friendship with a thoughtful boy gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all.
The Edge of Seventeen is set to hit theaters later this year.
The 19-year-old singer and actress, who also collaborated with Grey for the new track “Starving,” debuted some clips on Instagram.
“I didn’t know that I was starving ’til I tasted you. Don’t need no butterflies when you give me the whole damn zoo. By the way, by the way, you do things to my body. I didn’t know that I was starving ’til I tasted you,” Hailee sings on the track.
The 19-year-old entertainer was seen in a different outfit while walking the red carpet earlier in the night. During the show, she performed with up-and-coming singer Shawn Hook.
Shawn kicked off the performance with his song “Sound of Your Heart” and then Hailee joined him as they segued into her current single “Rock Bottom.”
FYI: Hailee is wearing a Rodarte top, skirt, and scarf, Jimmy Choo shoes, a Tyler Alexandra bag, and Jimmy Choo shoes on the carpet. She is wearing a Balmain dress, Vetements shoes, and Dauphin jewelry for the performance.
Hailee performed a bunch of her hits like “Love Myself” and “Rock Bottom,” as well as a cover of Justin Bieber‘s “Love Yourself,” which you can watch below.
“There’s no better reminder that love conquers all than joining the LGBQT community at LA Pride tonight. I could have danced all night in celebration of our freedom and equality. In memory of the victims this weekend, we stand with you and your families,” Hailee wrote on Instagram.
