Hailee Steinfeld looks stunning on the cover of Seventeen magazine’s September issue, on stands August 9th.
Here’s what the 19-year-old actress and musician had to share with the mag…
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.”
