Hailee Steinfeld: 'Glamour' Magazine June 2013 Feature
Here’s what the 16-year-old actress had to share:
On her iconic role in the new film Romeo and Juliet: “It was definitely scary—I mean, it’s Shakespeare. I was attached early on, so I was part of the casting process with Romeo [played by Douglas Booth].”
On bullying: “Bullying is something I went through, from third to sixth grade, when I got pulled out [of school]. I still go through it. And if I can be the person who says, ‘Trust me when I tell you it will be OK,’ then I will be that person.”
On her closeness to her parents: “I’m away from home for six weeks at a time, sometimes more, and it’s tough when I miss my dad. But he always says to me, ‘Are you having a good time?’ And I really am. That’s why I’m here.”
