Hailee Steinfeld Talks Bullies & Missing Out On Normal Teen Life in 'Flare' (Exclusive)

Hailee Steinfeld looks gorgeous (while sporting an Apple Sport Watch!) on the cover of Flare magazine’s May 2015 issue, provided exclusively to!

Here’s what the 18-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On being a role model: “Everyone makes mistakes. In the world we live in, our mistakes are highlighted over everything else. But I think as long as I do what I love, then people can choose to look up to me or not.”

On choosing home-schooling: “[Bullying] was a factor. Along with [my film] schedule picking up. I was the new kid in school so that came into play. There was no second thought, because it was all around a not-so-great experience.”

On missing out on normal teen life: “It is definitely hard, being on the other side of the world, knowing that you’re missing out. [On my 18th birthday] I was texting my friends: ‘Guys, I’m 18!’ The next day I woke up to all these messages saying happy birthday, and by that time, I was kind of over it.”

    There’s nothing new or shocking about this now. It’s almost a given that these young starlets have no childhood. For goodness sake they all want to be sexual objectified because they have been pushed and conditioned by their managers and agents to look sexier and older..It works for the Kardashians. By the time these actresses hit 24 they are seasoned and matured and already considered old news. The younger they are the more IT girl they have a chance of being.
