Hailee Steinfeld Interview – The Edge of Seventeen – “Just concern yourself with yourself and you can’t go wrong from there”
Hailee Steinfeld can’t make up her mind between winning an Oscar or a Grammy in future. The 19 year-old is already one of Hollywood’s youngest nominees, landing an Academy Award nod in 2011 at just 13 for her performance in the Coen Brothers’ True Grit.
Q: What would you like to impart on your younger self of what you know now?
STEINFELD: I really wish I didn’t care as much about what everyone else thought of me. That would be my one tip to my younger self. Who cares! Just concern yourself with yourself and you can’t go wrong from there. I cannot tell you how freeing and liberating that realisation was when I had it, it’s like one of life’s most important lessons.
