We’re glad she doesn’t have to deal with this sh*t anymore!
But Hailee Steinfeld still remembers the awful bullying she had to endure while still in high school just a few short years ago.
Speaking with Seventeen, the magazine’s cover star recalled:
“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.”
WOW. Some people are nuts!
Now a bona fide star, the 19-year-old dished on what it’s like to be a Taylor Swift squad member:
“I think people think we spend a lot more time together than we actually do! She’s amazing though!”
The actress and singer also admits she has insecurities just like anybody else, and they can be fueled by social media:
“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.”
Despite that, Hails has majorly ambitious plans for herself:
“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.”
We hope she’s taking notes from Swifty! Ha!
But if anybody can make it in the music industry, it’s definitely the girl who was nominated for an Oscar at 13!
