Steinfeld likes eating cheeseburgers and tries to get one in every place that she visits. But there’s a catch – She’s not a huge fan of burgers with excessive toppings. She likes to keep things simple, with just the regular meat, cheese, and bread, with a bit of avocado, if available.
She doesn’t have pierced ears, as her mother wanted her to make her own choice whether she wanted to get them pierced or not. According to Steinfeld herself, she never got around to doing it due to her indecisiveness.

Career History of Hailee Steinfeld

Her first acting debut happened when she was only ten years old. She showed up in a bunch of short films, including one for the Cameron Sawyer-directed She’s A Fox. Later on, she was cast in the role of Mattie Ross in the 2010 remake of the film True Grit. The original film came out in 1969. Steinfeld received critical acclaim for her performance from Time magazine, and The Los Angeles Times. This also led her to receiving her first Oscar nomination at the age of 13, for Best Supporting Actress. The following year, she starred in a 2013 adaptation of Romeo & Juliet, alongside British actor Douglas Booth – As she was underage at the time, director Carlo Carlei chose to omit the nude scenes to make it age-appropriate. This was followed by the films Begin Again, Ender’s Game, and Ten Thousand Saints. The first two films both came out in 2013, while the last one was released in 2015. In the same year, Steinfeld played the role of Emily Junk in the sequel to the musical comedy film Pitch Perfect.

Steinfeld’s stint in Pitch Perfect 2 led her to scoring a record deal with Republic Records. She released her first album, Haiz, in 2015. The album’s title is based after the nickname given to Steinfeld by her fans. Singles from the album included ‘Love myself’, ‘Rock bottom’, and ‘Starving’, which featured DJ Zedd. Steinfeld went back to acting after doing her album promotions, appearing in the film The Edge of Seventeen, directed by Kelly Fremon Craig. The film gained positive reviews, and earned Steinfeld a Golden Globe nomination.

In 2017, Steinfeld released two more songs: ‘Let me go’ and ‘Most girls’, the latter also being about women empowerment. The following year, she starred in two Blockbuster movies – Bumblebee, directed by Travis Knight (a part of the Transformers live-action film series), and the animated film Spiderman: Into The Spider-Verse, where she voiced Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Woman.

Steinfeld is set to play the role of American poet Emily Dickinson on the Apple TV+ web series, Dickinson. The series is currently in post-production. She is also working on her first studio album.

Rumors And Frequently Asked Questions About Hailee Steinfeld

It is said that one of Steinfeld’s hit songs, ‘Love Myself’, is indeed about loving yourself – But in a whole different way. The song is very catchy, and talks about women empowerment. But some of the lyrics might have a bit of a naughty undertone to them: “When I get chills at night/I feel it deep inside,” “I’m gonna put my body first/And love me so hard ‘til it hurts”, and “I’m going to touch the pain away/I know how to scream my own name”. Not to mention Steinfeld wears a leotard in the video with the words ‘self-service’ right in front.
