Hailee Steinfeld arrives at the City Year Los Angeles’ Spring Break: Destination Education event held at Sony Pictures Studios on Saturday night (April 20) in Los Angeles.
The 16-year-old actress looked cute in a Dolce&Gabbana dress and Marni shoes.
The star-studded third annual fundraiser raised $1.3 million to support their 275 AmeriCorps members who serve as tutors, mentors, and role models to more than 4,000 students who are at risk of dropping out of school!
In case you missed it, Hailee has been cast in the upcoming flick Barely Lethal.
According to Deadline, the 16-year-old actress has signed on for indie flick, Barely Lethal, which Kyle Newman is directing.
Hailee would play Megan, who was raised at a boarding school that trains children to be assassins. She’s clueless about normal life, so when she relocates to a small rural town she discovers dealing with high school is just as hard.
Ender’s Game, opening in November, is set 70 years after a horrific alien war where an unusually gifted child (Butterfield) is sent to an advanced military school in space to prepare for a future invasion.
FYI: Hailee is wearing a Kenzo ensemble with Nicholas Kirkwood heels.
“One scene that I really remember is a scene with me and Hailee. We’re in the Battle Room. She’s hit her head on one of the floating objects. I’ve jumped out…I’ve disobeyed my orders and jumped out to catch her. When I hit her, we start spinning. Of course, in zero gravity, there’s nothing to slow you down. We’re just rotating in mid-air for like an endless amount of time just hanging on.
He continued, “To imitate this, they had this thing they called the ‘hamster wheel’ which me and Hailee were both strapped to. We’re holding hands, facing each other and they rotated us doing front flips over each other pretty much. Meanwhile, we’re acting out lines; it was hilarious. Not only did we get really dizzy but it was really funny to do.”

The film’s official summary: In the near future, a hostile alien race called the Formics have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer.
Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers.
Soon ordained by Graff as the military’s next great hope, Ender heads to Command School. Once there, he’s trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.
