Hailee Steinfeld Blossoms


Los Angeles - The first time we met Fil-Am actress Hailee Steinfeld, she was just 13 years old and was already making waves in Hollywood as the talented newcomer in "True Grit" as Mattie Ross.

Now 19 and turning 20 on Dec. 11, the lanky teener has blossomed into a fine young woman who is poised, confident, intelligent and down-to-earth. She is cast in Kelly Fremon Craig's directorial debut film "The Edge Of Seventeen" where she portrays the high school junior Nadine.

Those questions of being what am I good at and who am I and what is my place in the world? How do I fit in? Do I even want to fit in? Those are the questions that I have been trying to answer myself the last couple of years of my life."

It is also about mother and daughter relationship, we said. So can she talk about her relationship with her own mother and did she ever rebel?

"Oh gosh no," Hailee replied. "I do not know what I would do without my mother. We have a relationship that is so solid and cannot be broken. It was hard to comprehend the dynamic that Nadine has with her mom in this movie, that full disconnect and misunderstanding constantly. …
