Hailee Steinfeld is speaking up about bullying and Taylor Swift’s girl squad

We love a bit of Hailee Steinfeld at MP! Towers so we were super excited to discover that she’s been talking to Seventeen Magazine about a number of topics.


The 19-year-old Oscar-nominated actress and pop star is not only talking to Seventeen but she’s also on the cover of the September issue looking absolutely stunning as ever.


Hailee will appear in ‘The Edge Of Seventeen’, which looks set to be released in September 2016. In the film, she plays awkward high school junior Nadine. But in her interview, she reveals this is much closer to life than we thought.

“This girl goes through experiences I totally went through, where it felt like it was the absolute end of the world. Just having so many moments where you question who you are and what it is that you’re good at and what you feel good in.”

She goes on to explain that she was bullied so much at school that she would go in early every day and enter through a back entrance.

“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 sanitiser 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.”

Of course, Hailee beat her bullies and today, she’s totally winning; even earning a place in Taylor Swift’s girl squad. However, she’s also addressed that and it seems they’re not as close as it would seem.


“I think people think we spend a lot more time together than we actually do! She’s amazing though.”

Well, we still think it would be amazing to have Taylor Swift as a BFF. She’s also talking about her upcoming album and much, much more. If you want to know what else, be sure to pick up a copy of Seventeen when it’s released on August 9.
