Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Hailee Steinfeld , one of the girls on the Squad of Taylor Swift, recently revealed in her interview with Seventeen magazine that she and the “Shake It Off” singer are not that close.
Steinfeld and Swift’s friendship started years ago but she shared that they do not hang out as often as what people think. She said, "I think people think we spend a lot more time together than we actually do! She’s amazing, though.”
The “Pitch Perfect 2” star also shared with the magazine that she got bullied a lot in the past. She noted that she has an amazing support system that got her through the bullying but could not help to relay what she suffered from before. The 19-year-old said, "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.'"
In order to hide from the bullies, Steinfeld said that she went to school early and went in the back way. However, there were times that when she got to her desk, hand sanitizer is all over her books and water bottle. People would also come by and slam her locker shut while she was still putting her books in.
The experiences from the past helped her prepare for her role in “The Edge of Seventeen.” Her role is about an awkward teenager living in the shadows of her all-star older brother. She noted that her role went through experiences that she herself has gone through.
Aside from that, Steinfeld talked about her music career. Her debut single entitled “Love Myself” did well last year and she recently teamed up with Zedd and Grey for the song “Starving.”
Steinfeld shared,"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."
